During the WWE Alternative Tour II last November, Seth Rollins and Lio Rush participated in the "Survival Series" Tournament and when the "Man of the Hour" found a way to upset Rollins, the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion snapped and attacked the unsuspecting Rush culminating with a Blackout Stomp on the concrete floor, removing Rush from in-ring competition for nearly 3 months until the Royal Rumble.
Rush shockingly entered the titular match for the men and shocked Seth Rollins, who while he was away joined Jeff Hardy's "The Order" and was in a dominant position to last in the match, but this wasn't the Lio Rush that Rollins stomped out overseas, this was the alter-ego of Rush known as "The Blackheart". Rush made a feline to the ring and eliminated both himself and Rollins in the process and went a step further by attacking Rollins with a steel chair before hitting a elbow drop through a table, signaling that the war has just begun
Over the following weeks, Lio sent cryptic messages to The Order, most specifically Rollins, that he was not only coming for revenge but he sacrificed his soul to take control of the group and will do so in time. Jeff Hardy took exception to this and during a match against Buddy Murphy on a episode of Carnage, Karrion Kross and Seth Rollins took the fight to the soul of Lio Rush but the return of Keith Lee and Drew McIntyre - two adversaries of The Order - allowed Rush to lock away his soul again and behind "The Black Hand" stood his future as Rush once again left Rollins stunned
On Carnage #19, Jeff Hardy returned for the first time since Royal Rumble to inform his right hand man that he needs to get rid of this problem and will do so at the Showcase of the Immortals when he clashes with "The Blackheart" under Extreme Rules. Not one to pass up on the opportunity, Rush appeared from the darkness during a match between Kross and Lee to lay out the "Dutch of Doomsday" with a twisted version of a baseball bat covered in spikes and barbed wire, sending a direct message to Rollins that he will pull out everything to settle the score at WrestleMania!
