Backstage: Triple H told Kane to track down Luke Harper and Dean Ambrose because they are loose on the streets of Chicago. It’d be hilarious if they end up at the comic convention CM Punk is signing at. Seth Rollins showed up and HHH told them they needed to get on the same page. Rollins questioned his actions at Smackdown where he was tossed into a Roman Reigns spear. Kane said he was protecting him and he’s been acting like an ungrateful Punk since his won the title. HHH told them to calm down and said Seth does have a point. HHH said Kane has spent a lot of time lately (you know, like the last two weeks) trying to prove to the world he is the man he used to be. HHH said he doesn’t want anything to fall between the cracks and that he won’t regret making Kane the gatekeeper. Kane promised he would do what’s best for business.
WWE World Heavyweight champion Seth Rollins vs. Randy Orton: Steel Cage Match, RKO is Banned, Kane is The GateKeeper
No J&J Security when Rollins came out.

Rollins ordered Kane to open the door. Kane obliged but Orton cut him off. Seth rolled him up for a two count. Rollins maintained control and sent Orton into the cage several times. With Orton down, Rollins climbed to the top of the cage, only for Orton to meet him and bring him back down. Orton sent Rollins into the ropes but was caught and slammed down as Rollins rebounded.
Rollins nailed a forearm in the corner. Pretty standard so far. Orton mounts a comeback and they battle back and forth inside the cage. The crowd is getting behind the Orton comeback.

Rollins dove off the ropes but was caught with a powerslam in mid-air for a two count. Rollins rolled up Orton for a two count, then kicked him in the jaw for another near fall.
The crowd began dueling chants for Rollins. The champion climbed to the top and made his way across to the outside. Randy caught him to prevent him from climbing down just as J&J Security ran out hoping to help. Their arrival came too late, however, as Orton nailed a superplex off the top of the cage. That was impressive, but it only scored a two count.
J&J Security told Kane “it was time, so let’s do it” but Kane stood there stoically and told them to get away Mercury and Noble began scaling the cage but Orton ran Seth into the cage to shake them off. Orton smiled as he continued to work over Rollins and set him up for the hanging DDT. Rollins was able to pull Orton, smashing him into the cage. Seth tried to climb back up, but was exhausted. Orton nailed him and Rollins was crotched on the top rope.
Orton went to the cage door and looked at Kane but didn’t trust he would open the door. He went back to Rollins and DDT’d him off the top rope. The announcers noted this was nomally where Randy would for an RKO but instead, Orton nailed a Pedigee, sending HHH a message, but Rollins kicked up at the last second. Orton set up for the punt kick but missed. Rollins drilled Orton with a kick out of desperation.
Rollins called for the door to be opened. Kane opened it. He made it to the door but Orton caught him and nailed his backbreaker variation. Orton went to walk out the door but Kane closed it. Rollins went to dropkick Orton, who moved and the door slammed into Kane, laying him out. Rollins tried to escape but Orton caught him and they fought to see who would get out first. Kane slammed the door on both of them.
Kane had enough and took off his jacket. He entered the ring as J&J Security tried to stop him but they each ate a chokeslam for their troubles. Kane teased a chokeslam on Rollins, which the crowd went nuts for but he instead chokeslammed Orton. Rollins crawled out of the cage but was pulled back in…by Kane. Kane chokeslammed Rollins. I guess we’ll be seeing some Kane masks very soon. Kane put Rollins on top but Orton kicked out.
Kane was leaving but stopped when he realized Orton kicked out. Kane went for a powerslam but Orton slipped out and nailed a RKO on Kane. Rollins then nailed a RKO on Orton and scrambled out of the cage.
Your winner and still WWE World Heavyweight champion, Seth Rollins!
