Triple H emphasises that Rollins did what was best for business.

Triple H said everything to do with Ziggler, Ryback or Erick Rowan is irrelevant because they’re no longer here, they got fired.
- He also said Ryback, Rowan and Ziggler knew the stakes when they got involved in the way. He said the inmates can’t run the asylum and the show was chaos while they were gone.

- Cole asked how is it best for business that three top Superstars get fired. Triple H admits it’s not best for business but says you can’t have a mutiny, you can’t let the inmates run the asylum. He says a guy like Rowan is limitless but we’ll never know because they went down the wrong path.Triple H says the Superstars fired themselves. The Game said he’s going to sleep just fine.
- He also mentions that everyone owes Seth Rollins for saving WWE. He said Rollins was willing to sacrifice himself for the well-being of the company.

The Cerebral Assassin says that Rollins is his hero, but he’s not giving him anything special.
