Road To Wrestlemania 31: The Authority
For almost two years, The Authority has stamped its authority on the locker room. They’ve had their failures and successes but they’re still showing a united stance until eventually things fell apart. Slowly but steadily, the balance in their universe is being shaken. Randy Orton and Sting have played a major role in it with Daniel Bryan having done most of the legwork in the past year. Here’s how The Authority’s Road to Wrestlemania is panning out to be.
#1 Journey since 2014
Arguably, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H came out looking like the biggest heel in the company and then the unforeseen happened. Seth Rollins betrayed his brothers to join forces with two-thirds of Evolution after Batista bid farewell following the Payback PPV.
Since then Rollins has been Triple H’s protege in the heel department, even so pushing aside Orton as the rotten apple of The Authority’s eye.
All of this culminated into a spectacular main event at Survivor Series which was preceded by some tremendous momentum shifting towards an Orton heel turn. Orton was pushed aside and The Authority looked set to beat Team Cena. Until a man named Sting showed up.
They left only to come back again. 2014 ended with the end of The Authority’s exile.
