On the November 24 episode of Raw, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon bid farewell to the WWE Universe, but were interrupted by Daniel Bryan, who returned and served as the general manager for both Raw and SmackDown that week, putting members of Team Authority in unfavorable situations. Mark Henry was put in a match against Ryback, which he lost quickly. Luke Harper defended his Intercontinental Championship against Dean Ambrose, which ended in a disqualification due to interference from Bray Wyatt. Kane was put into concessions for the night as Concessions Kane. Rusev and Lana were forced to speak out the Pledge of Allegiance or defend the United States Championship in a Battle Royal, which Rusev did successfully on SmackDown. Seth Rollins lost a 3-on-2 handicap match against John Cena and James Harrison, with Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury chosen as his partners by fans poll. At the end of the show, it was announced that the Anonymous Raw General Manager would be returning the following week.

On the December 29 episode of Raw, after threatening to Curb Stomp guest host Edge (who had to retire due to multiple neck injuries that could leave him paralyzed), Rollins coaxed Cena into bringing back The Authority after just over a month of exile. The following week on Raw, The Authority rewarded Rollins by placing him in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at the Royal Rumble also involving Cena and defending champion James Harrison. In the same show, the Authority had also gave out the pre-match stipulated consequences to Team Cena, firing Ryback and Rowan. Harrison the other member of Team Cena was to be fired but threatened to walk out with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship like CM Punk did if he was fired. Later on January 19, 2015 on Raw, John Cena defeated Seth Rollins, Big Show and Kane in a 3-on-1 handicap match with the help of Sting, and thus Ryback and Erick Rowan managed to get their jobs back. On January 22, 2015 on SmackDown, Daniel Bryan and James Harrison welcomed Ryback and Erick Rowan to celebrate their return to the WWE. Erick Rowan and Ryback would continue to team as a faction well into 2015.
