Lawler explains that the Money in the Bank match begins on the bottom floor of the WWE headquarters, where they may fight in the elevators, in the gym, or even in Vince McMahon’s office.

McIntyre makes his way down the ramp and enters the ring where Lawler and Rollins are already sitting in wait.

McIntyre then sits, and says “as a matter of fact…” McIntyre then signs. McIntyre tells Rollins to go ahead, this can be done in 20 seconds. Rollins then takes the pen, but stops to give a speech.
