The Shield vs. RVD, Mark Henry and Big Show
Henry and Rollins started, with Henry quickly backing him up and slamming him. He quickly tagged, RVD, who climbed to the top and hit a kick on Rollins, followed by a standing moonsault for a two count. Rollins made a blind tag to Ambrose, who blitzed RVD from behind and quickly isolated him in the corner. He hit a short arm clothesline and quickly tagged in Reigns.
Reigns dropped RVD with strikes, and mocked RVD by doing his chant. He then took a cheap shot at Henry and knocked him off the apron, but that allowed RVD to hit a kick and make a tag to Big Show while reigns tagged in Ambrose. Show hit a big back body drop, and sent Seth Rollins to the floor when he tried to intervene. Show hit the ropes, but Reigns low bridged him to the outside. Reigns set up for a spear on the outside, but Henry caught him and tossed him over the announce table. While Henry celebrated, Rollins came off the ropes and hit a kick to the face. Show barely made the ten count to get back in the ring, and he surprised Ambrose with a KO punch seemingly out of nowhere and then leaned on the ropes. Show quickly tagged in RVD, who hit the five star frog splash for the victory.
