With the Authority back in power, Triple H has resumed his weekly interviews with Michael Cole and, of course, the firing of Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, and Erick Rowan is the first topic to come up.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, it’s believed that the Vigilante Sting will cause Triple H trouble at WWE Royal Rumble 2015. It’s said the Royal Rumble winner is still up in the air and that Triple H called a locker room meeting to tell the entire WWE roster they have a chance to shine — that is, except for Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, and Erick Rowan.
Officially, the three WWE superstars have been added to the alumni section of the WWE website, and Dolph Ziggler’s Twitter account even sent out a long goodbye message to fans. Ziggler was even punished for doing a comedy show without permission, adding even more to the drama. The WWE roster was even updated to add Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury, the two henchmen who follow the Authority and Seth Rollins around. Both men are now officially listed as members of Monday Night RAW, although whether that’s a short-term story plot is anyone’s guess.
Unofficially, everyone knows that the WWE is currently high on Dolph Ziggler. The way he won Survivor Series in order to remove the Authority endeared him to the fans. There’s even rumors that Ziggler may be a WrestleMania 31 winner as part of a main event.
Of course, Triple H cannot admit to all that since he was in full kayfabe mode when discussing the future of Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, and Erick Rowan in the WWE. The Authority caused Ziggler to lose his Intercontinental Title to Bad News Barrett, but Triple H dismissed the technicalities of the match since the three men are no longer in the WWE after being “fired.”
Triple H says the WWE was a sinking ship without the Authority, although Cole pointed out how could it be best for business to fire some of the bigger names in the WWE. Triple H responded by saying that you can’t have the inmates running the asylum, and that the WWE superstars essentially fired themselves by lining up with John Cena. In the end, Triple H insists it’s a new era under the continued reign of the Authority, and that everyone will get what they deserve. The last part could be considered a bit of foreshadowing for the story line, since many fans feel Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, and Erick Rowan should be back in the ring — pronto.
What would be the best way for the WWE superstars to get back at Triple H? Do you think it should be a “Team Sting” that goes all Vigilante on the Authority?
