In Ring: Monday Night Raw opened with Elias inside the ring, waiting to perform. He stated he was the most valuable face in WWE and will be even more valuable after he captures the IC title at Money in the Bank. He reminded everyone that he attacked Seth Rollins last week and admitted he was pained, because he broke one of his favorite guitars. Elias began singing over footage of Rollins being hit with the guitar last week, knocking some local sports teams for good measure. Out came WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins. Elias wound up his guitar and dared Rollins to enter the ring, but instead the champion circled the ring. Rollins finally entered, but was jumped by Jinder Mahal. They worked over Rollins, who was saved by Roman Reigns. They brawled. Kurt Angle came out and declared there would be a tag team match tonight.
