Tape Delayed in Columbus, Ohio
Report by James Caldwell, PWTorch assistant editor
Seth Rollins opened the show walking to the ring a dark suit. Rollins hit the ring to "You Sold Out" chants, selling amusement with the now-weekly chant. Rollins said they don't even know what he's going to say, so give him a break. Rollins said what he would like to do is congratulate his former "business partner," Roman Reigns.
Rollins told Reigns to enjoy his small victory of winning the MITB qualifying battle royal last night on Raw. He said Reigns crossed The Authority by out-foxing Vickie Guerrero and he will face every repercussion coming his way next Monday on Raw. Rollins said he knows the true Roman Reigns - a volcano whose rage will come out at the worst time. Rollins claimed to be the only one who can harness Reigns's anger and manipulate him.
That brought Rollins to Dean Ambrose. He said Ambrose is bound to wind up in a straight-jacket. No Sam Shaw reference. Rollins said two weeks ago, he showed why he is still in control, which led to a video replay of Rollins turning on Reigns and Ambrose to end his "partnership" with the duo. Rollins said he never gets tired of seeing that.
On to other business. Rollins said there will be a WWE World Title ladder match at Money in the Bank. But, he has a surprise and an announcement. "Daniel Bryan" chant interrupted. Rollins let it play out, then announced a second ladder match, this one a traditional MITB contract ladder match. And his better news is that he is the first entrant in the match. Because him holding the contract is what's best for business.
Suddenly, noise that sounded like someone revving an engine interrupted. Out came Dean Ambrose dressed in a white undershirt tanktop and jeans. Ambrose marched down to the ring looking for a street fight. Ambrose tackled Rollins and put it to him, but Kane's pyro suddenly shot off to distract Ambrose. This allowed Rollins to beat up Ambrose, but Ambrose responded by flipping Rollins over the top rope to the outside onto Kane. Ambrose high-tailed it up the ramp as Rollins and Kane recovered in the ring. Ambrose's clashing music played to signal he got the one-up in this instance.
Still to come: Usos & Sheamus vs. The Wyatts.
In-ring: Lana cut a promo on behalf of Rusev, who decided to also speak and note resistance is futile. Santino answered the call of facing Rusev tonight.
1 -- RUSEV (w/Lana) vs. SANTINO
Opening bell, kick to the gut, and thrust kick to the face. Lana quickly called for the end, prompting Rusev to slap on The Accolade for a submission. Referee Rudy Charles reprimanded Rusev for keeping the hold locked on for about as long as the match went, then Rusev finally dropped the hold before he got himself DQ'ed. Rusev then received his gold medal from Lana to celebrate the easy win.
WINNER: Rusev via submission at 0:25.
The Wyatt theme interrupted to put Luke Harper on the screen in a dark room. Harper told The Usos that their time is up as tag champs. Bray Wyatt then spoke up that the Usos and Sheamus are pawns. And, tonight, they will fall. Bray vowed to stand tall and rejoice at Money in the Bank as champions.
2 -- Divas champion PAIGE vs. NAOMI (w/Cameron)
Paige displayed the Divas Title belt in Cameron's face to follow up on Paige getting some revenge on Cameron last night on Raw. Now, Naomi gets a chance to beat the champion. Respect was the theme early on, as they stalemated after double kip-ups. Paige quickly found out she was in the ring with the more-experienced of the Funkadactyls, taking sustained offense from Naomi. Paige tried to mount a comeback, but Naomi cut her off and got the win.
Post-match: Cameron celebrated and jumped up and down, taking the spotlight from Naomi and gloating in front of Paige. Paige went for a handshake to Naomi, but Cameron wanted nothing to do with that for her tag partner. Paige snapped and beat up Cameron while Naomi backed up and did nothing to help. Paige eventually dumped Cameron out of the ring, then shook hands with Naomi. Cameron, angered, stomped off when Naomi left the ring to check on her.
WINNER: Naomi at 5:20. A second Divas Division storyline in-play with the Funks apparently on the verge of a split. It could factor into the decision on a potential Paige vs. Naomi title match by virtue of Naomi's non-title victory.
Video: Raw Rebound.
Announced for Smackdown: Cena & Sheamus & Reigns vs. Cesaro & Orton & Del Rio & Bray Wyatt in a four-on-three handicap match featuring WWE Title ladder match participants.
Backstage: Renee Young brought in Sheamus and the Usos for a discussion of the main event against The Wyatts. Sheamus said he just wants a fight, then the Usos broke down their gameplan to smash the Wyatts with ladders. Sheamus closed with a note that he plans to deliver some Brogue Kicks in the WWE Title ladder match at MITB.
Suddenly, the Wyatt theme interrupted. "Columbus, we're here," Bray said.
In-ring: The Wyatts made their way to the ring for the main event before Main Event cut to break.
This Friday on Smackdown: Dean Ambrose vs. Kane in a singles match added to the show.
In-ring: The Wyatts waited in the ring for their opponents, then Sheamus's music played to bring out the first participant. The Usos were out next to join Sheamus in the ring for the main event.
3 -- WWE tag champs THE USOS (JIMMY & JEY) & SHEAMUS vs. THE WYATTS (BRAY WYATT & LUKE HARPER & ERICK ROWAN) -- six-man tag match
Plenty of in-and-out tags early on before things settled down with the Wyatts isolating Jey Uso for sustained offense. Jey fought back and tagged in Jimmy, who lost control of the match. Main Event cut to break with the heels in control.
Bray was dominating the action back form break. Bray taunted the other two babyfaces before building a head of steam to smash Jimmy with a corner splash. Sheamus finally tagged in to meet Harper, who also entered via tag. Sheamus fired off offense to Harper, but Harper blocked Ten Forearms. Sheamus responded with a powerslam, then warmed up for the Brogue Kick, but Rowan got involved. So, Sheamus smashed Rowan with Ten Forearms to the Chest.
Back to Harper, who clipped Sheamus's knee. But, Sheamus managed to roll toward the face corner to tag in Jimmy, who splashed Harper for a two count. Chaos in the ring, then Bray tagged himself in out-of-sight of the Usos. Bray then snuck up on Jimmy with Sister Abigail, and it was good for the pin and the win. The Wyatts took their win and left up the entrance ramp to the back, while the babyfaces recovered and tried to talk themselves up to get 'em next time.
WINNERS: Wyatts at 11:38. Solid main event. Refreshing booking to see the heels get a win without it being overly heelish, while giving the babyfaces something to fight back against. Simple and effective.
