Daniel Bryan & Roman Reigns def. Kane & Big Show via Disqualification
Daniel Bryan and Roman Reign’s rocky pact against the Authority took off with a tag-team battle with Kane and Big Show. In the opening moments of the show, Bryan had Kane trapped in a “Yes!” Lock which was brought to an end by Big Show. Big Show tossed Daniel Bryan through the barricade for the disqualification end of the bout. The Authority announced that Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan would later team up in the evening to face the entire ranks of the Authority.
Ryback def. Seth Rollins via Disqualification
Mr. Money in the Bank faced Ryback in a heated matchup joined by J&J security. Rollins and Ryback fought competitively until Ryback managed to load up a Shell Shocked. J&J security interfered and took Ryback out at the knees. To this, Rollins curb stomped Ryback at the end of the confrontation. However, Seth Rollins still lost the bout by technical disqualification.
Paige def. Brie Bella
Brie’s ground-and-pound strategy backfired in the end, aggravating Paige to fiercely retaliate. Paige tossed Brie straight into Nikki on the apron and sealed the deal with a match-ending ram to defeat Brie Bella.
Rusev and Lana “Honored” John Cena
Rusev and Lana’s tribute to John Cena turned out to be a compilation of Cena’s most debilitating injuries of his career. At Cena’s entrance, Rusev thumbed Cena’s inflamed eye and rammed him face-first into the Titan Tron’s LED screen.
Bray Wyatt def. Dolph Ziggler
Dolph Ziggler had Bray Wyatt hurt with a famouser and superkick, but Wyatt got out at two. Ziggler chased Wyatt outside of the ring when he fell victim to a hard clothesline. With Ziggler stunned, Wyatt had the chance to take him back to the ring and execute Sister Abigail for the win.
The New Day def. Gold & Stardust
Gold and Stardust have had a rocky relationship of late that only got worse on WWE Raw. Stardust left Goldust to fend for himself against The New Day mid-match. Big E only had to tag in and finish off Goldust to win the match when he was abandoned.
Sting Responds to Triple H’s Fastlane Challenge
Triple H has been calling out the WCW vet for a weeks, issuing a challenge for WWE Fastlane. Last night, Triple H’s address was answered by several Sting imposters and a Titan Tron message that simply read “Triple H, I accept.”
Cesaro & Tyson Kidd def. The Usos
Cesaro ditched his signature power moves for some classic tricks, distracting Jey Uso at the turnbuckle and tossing Jimmy into the line of fire. Cesaro shoved Jey down to the mat to Kidd, who snagged the quick win.
Sin Cara def. Damien Mizdow
The former stunt double took Sin Cara to the limit last night. However, his boss’s bout directions, including a mid-match water run and demands that the Mizdow not use his moves cost him the match. Once Mizdow released Sin Cara at Miz’s command from a figure-four leg lock, Sin Cara struck with a roll-up and pinned him.
Dean Ambrose def. Curtis Axel
Ambrose’s late rally to Dirty Deeds led to victory, shutting down Axel’s hopes after a competitive match. Bad News Barret emerged from the Bad News Zone and granted Dean Amrose the Intercontinental Title opportunity.
Daniel Bryan & Roman Reigns def. Seth Rollins, Big Show, Kane & J&J Security
A brutal 5-on-2 handicap match saw Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns face Kane, Big Show and J&J Security. However, once The Big Show KO’d Roman Reigns, the duo got backup when Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan entered the ring. Bryan was left in the ring when Reigns came to and tagged in quick to steal the show with a spear victory. With a shove against the ropes, Roman Reigns bounced off the ropes and speared the angered Daniel Bryan.
