At the top of the show, they had a clip from the doctor who performed Daniel Bryan’s neck surgery. He said Bryan isn’t cleared this month to compete and will be re-evaluated in the next several months so he can return to action as soon as possible. With that, Stephanie and Triple H said they were stripping Bryan of the title belts. They were shown hanging above the ring. They reminded fans that they would be featured in the Money in the Bank ladder match, which Alberto Del Rio became the first to qualify for last week. HHH then announced Randy Orton as the second man in the match giving the reason because “of who he is.” They led into the next qualifying match for the MITB.
Sheamus defeated Bad News Barrett via pinfall in a Money in the Bank qualifying match. Sheamus won with the Brogue Kick out of nowhere to become the third competitor entered into the MITB match for the titles.
Rusev defeated Zack Ryder via submission. Lana and Rusev cut a pre-match promo using footage of Barack Obama’s recent workout video to call him a “girly leader of the US.” In the match, Rusev squashed Ryder and used The Accolade for the win.
RybAxel defeated Goldust & R-Truth via pinfall. Cody Rhodes was shown watching on a backstage monitor. The close saw Axel with a roll up pinfall as he grabbed Goldust’s tights to secure the win.
Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns came out to interrupt a 3MB in-ring promo by destroying them. The two Shield members then cut a promo about Seth Rollins betraying them and talked about how they plan to get revenge. They also said HHH and Orton are a part of the problem. Reigns said he and the King of Kings would have their own “game of thrones.”
The Uso Brothers defeated Damien Sandow & Fandango via pinfall in a non-title match. Sandow was dressed in a leotard and did some sort of ribbon dance. At one point he did some more of his comedic dancing and one of the Usos caught him with a Superkick. The top rope splash followed for the win.
Bo Dallas defeated Xavier Woods via pinfall. Before the match, Dallas told Daniel Bryan he knows he’s angry at home, but the secret to recovery is “Bo-lieving.” The match lasted over 2 minutes and ultimately saw Dallas hit the Bo-Dog bulldog on Woods for the win.
Cesaro defeated Rob Van Dam via pinfall to qualify for the Money in the Bank match. Late in the match, Cesaro hit his Neutralizer to get the win on RVD. He now joins Sheamus, Orton and Del Rio in the MITB match at the PPV for the title belts.
Michael Cole introduced Seth Rollins for an in-ring interview. He came out wearing a black suit with new theme music. Rollins talked about how he did what was best for business, and said Shield was originally his creation, so he had the right to destroy it. He said Ambrose is a lunatic who’d be face down in a ditch if left to his own devices. He said Reigns is pure rage, anger and fury like you’ve never seen in a man, but it was he, Rollins, who helped to harness it. He said they owe him all the success they’ve ever achieved. Ambrose and Reigns were seen backstage watching the interview on a monitor.
Eventually the two Shield members came out from the side of the stage to head to the ring. However, the Wyatt Family sound effect went off. The graphic showed on the screen, but soon Reigns and Ambrose were in the ring against Harper and Rowan. Bray Wyatt came to help the Wyatts while Rollins fled. Suddenly, John Cena’s music hit and he rushed to the ring to help out The Shield in clearing the Wyatts.
Paige defeated Alicia Fox in a non-title match. Aksana was ringside for Fox. Paige put the PTO on late after Alicia Fox and Aksana bumped heads. Post-match, Aksana helped Fox up but Fox slapped her and roughed her up. She grabbed some bottled waters and popcorn from ringside to dump on Aksana.
Jack Swagger defeated Santino Marella via pinfall. Zeb Colter slapped Swagger several times when he was losing it. Eventually Swagger dodged a Cobra attempt by Santino then hit a Powerbomb for the win.
They had a backstage segment where Cody Rhodes told Goldust he’s found the person good enough to be his tag partner, someone he’s never seen before. He said the man will magnify the magnificence of Goldust will be on next week’s Raw.
They had Stephanie upset backstage talking to HHH about Cena teaming with Shield. HHH said after tonight nobody would be seeing Shield again. Vickie Guerrero came in with champagne to celebrate Brad Maddox getting fired. She accidentally sneezed in a glass, so Stephanie slapped it away and told her she’s been fired by her before “don’t make me do it again.”
Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose & John Cena defeated The Wyatt Family via pinfall in a six man tag match. Late in the match, Ambrose hit a suicide dive onto Rowan on the outside.

Backstage, Triple H and Seth Rollins were shown watching a monitor as the winning team celebrated to close out Raw.
