Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz (w/ Damien Mizdow)

Bryan attacks and beats Miz from pillar to post before connecting with a big Frankensteiner out of the corner. He goes for the running knee but Miz ducks out of the ring.
Miz takes advantage by catching Bryan on his way back in and locks on the figure four. Bryan reverses the momentum and tosses on the Yes Lock for the quick win.
Winner: Daniel Bryan

Ryback vs. Kane
Kane comes out swinging, but Ryback drops him with a belly to belly suplex. Kane ducks away from the Meat Hook and drops Ryback’s head over the top rope. Kane follows up with a big boot and an elbow, but only gets a two count.
Kane retains control with a chinlock, but Ryback fights out and plants Kane with a Thesz press, splash and spinebuster, but can only get two. Ryback goes to the top rope but is knocked to the floor by Kane. Back inside, Ryback reverses an Irish whip into Shellshock for the win out of nowhere.
– Dean Ambrose joins commentary for the upcoming Bad News Barrett match.
WWE Intercontinental champion Bad News Barrett vs. R-Truth in a non-title match
Ambrose calls Truth out for using a 1993 song (“Whoomp! There It Is) as a catchphrase. Truth connects with a back elbow, but Barrett quickly turns the tides with a series of kicks before throwing on a chinlock. Ambrose is fantastic on commentary.
Barrett hits the Winds of Change and brings Truth outside next to Ambrose at the commentary table. Ambrose chooses to ignore him and turns around. Barrett is trying to get Ambrose’s attention and gets pinned with a schoolboy.
Bad News Barrett is 1-5 in non-title matches on Raw and SmackDown since winning the Intercontinental title.
– A Sheamus return vignette airs.
The New Day (w/ Kofi Kingston) vs. The Ascension
Woods drops Viktor with a shoulder block, but is quickly driven into the corner and double teamed by both members of the Ascension. Finally Big E makes a tag and hits multiple belly-to-belly suplexes on Viktor before wiping himself down. Yep.
Big E clotheslines Konor over the top rope, but eats knees on a splash and gets tossed into the ringpost. He eats Fall of Man for the loss.
Winners: The Ascension
The Ascension move to 13-0 on WWE main roster TV with that win.
Roman Reigns vs. Luke Harper
Reigns attacks Harper early, tossing him into the buckle and pummeling him. Harper is forced out of the ring, chased down and clotheslined by Reigns outside.
Back inside Reigns hits a big uppercut and a belly-to-back slam. Harper knocks Reigns outside and into the stairs to set up a big boot that gains him the advantage. Harper gets a two count inside and goes to the Gator Roll.
Reigns fights back with a pumphandle suplex and several clotheslines in the corner before dropping Harper with another uppercut and a jumping clothesline for two.
Harper hits a big spinning side slam that gets a two count off of a spear attempt. Harper superkicks Reigns while he goes for a superman punch, but Reigns counters with a spear for the win!

– We go to commercial, with Show vs Rowan next.
Big Show vs. Erick Rowan
Big Show attacks Rowan before the bell, tossing him into the stairs and ring post. Rowan has to get to his feet before the bell rings, but Big Show just continues to dominate. Rowan tries to fight back, but can’t and gets chokeslammed.
Winner: Big Show
– The Bella Twins join the commentary booth while wearing ridiculous sunglasses.
Paige vs. Cameron
Paige takes advantage early with knees, but Cameron hits a pretty good looking DDT for a two count. Paige gets up, boots Cameron and locks on the PTO for the victory.
– A highlight of the Stardust/Goldust split is shown. A match is announced for Fastlane, and Goldust is interviewed. He says he saw the darkness take over Cody and Stardust is more than a persona, he’s a cancer.
Tyson Kidd (w/ Cesaro & Natalya) vs. Jimmy Uso (w/ Naomi & Jey Uso)
Tyson Kidd is FANTASTIC as the guy with the hot wife who doesn’t pay attention to her.
He jumps Uso, but gets worked into the corner and punched ten times. Out of nowhere, Rusev shows up and kills everyone. He leaves the Usos lying.
Result: No Contest
Rusev screams, yells, kills.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Seth Rollins
J&J Security are banned from ringside for this match. The two trade holds and make it to the ropes, before a series of reversals as we go to the commercial break.
We come back and Kane, Big Show, Erick Rowan and Big Show are all at ringside with Rollins in control. Ziggler comes back with a backslide but only gets two. An attempted Ziggler DDT turns into an attempted Rollins powerbomb, into a Ziggler sunset flip bomb for two. When they get back up, Ziggler hits a FameAsser, but can’t get the pin.
Rollins is dropkicked to the outside, but Kane distracts Ziggler when he’s on the top rope. Rollins scores with the turnbuckle powerbomb and Curb Stomp for the victory.
Winner: Seth Rollins
J&J Security come and celebrate, and Rollins leads all five into the ring to attack Rowan and Ryback. The faces put up a fight briefly, but are overwhelmed. Rowan is planted with a double chokeslam and a Curb Stomp.
Ryback comes back in and clears the ring, but the heels destroy him as well. The show goes off the air as Rollins Curb Stomps Ryback.
