The opening segment had Dean Ambrose come to the ring and recap how he had been hit in the head with cinder blocks on Raw weeks ago, then showed up last night to get revenge on Rollins. He said he’s the authority tonight and is not leaving the ring until he gets his hands on Rollins. Ambrose set up a chair in the ring and took a seat, but just then John Cena’s music hit.
Cena arrived to the ring and Ambrose warned him not to give him a reason to not like him. Cena said he’s not the only one who wants to get their hands on Rollins. Cena said after Rollins cost him a chance at the title last night, Cena is cashing in his “ass kicking in the bank contract.” Ambrose reiterated that he warned Cena already. Cena took off his various items preparing to fight, and Ambrose started to take off his jacket. The Authority arrived out with Steph, HHH, Kane and Rollins.
Triple H said Rollins won’t be fighting anyone tonight but Cena and Ambrose will. Both Cena and Ambrose rushed up the ramp to fight members of The Authority. Rollins fled to the crowd with Ambrose chasing and getting him a few times. Eventually, they got backstage, with Rollins fleeing from both Cena and Ambrose. He found someone loading luggage into a car and shoved them away, then stole the car to drive off.
Backstage, Orton complained to The Authority, asking when Rollins was coming back. HHH told Kane to take care of Ambrose tonight and noted that Orton is taking on Cena. Orton said Rollins needs to stop starting fires that they all have to put out for him.

She said summer may be coming to an end, but Summer time is always going on for her and Layla. In the match, Rosa was outside for Natalya, while Layla was there for Summer. Rosa was able to take care of Layla ringside at one point. Summer tried to roll up Natty, but she rolled through and put on the Sharpshooter.

He threw some punches at Kane. Security rushed in to break things up. Stephanie yelled at them to get Ambrose out of there. They locked Ambrose into a room and had a guard stand at the door to keep him there.
Sheamus and The Uso Brothers defeated Cesaro, Goldust, and Stardust via pinfall. Cesaro hit punches to the gut and a face uppercut move late in this one. Later, things broke down and one of The Usos had Goldust isolated to hit a top rope Superfly Splash for the win.
Seth Rollins took Randy Orton aside backstage and thanked him for facing John Cena tonight. He said he may have a bit of a surprise waiting for Orton at ringside. He mentioned that he and Kane will be there to watch the match as well. Orton said “I like surprises,” after Rollins gave him the info.
Mark Henry came to the ring to apologize to the fans for last night’s loss. He said he’s still not 100% and he knows he let everyone down so they can pick on him or whatever. Lana and Rusev came out on stage with Lana making fun of Americans and the Tennessee accent. She said the fans there probably want to see a rematch. She ordered Rusev to “Crush” and they headed to the ring before a commercial break.
Rusev defeated Mark Henry via submission. Henry gained control late and climbed to the second rope but Rusev managed to yank him down. He stomped on Henry to further hurt his back from last night’s incidents, then put on The Accolade to make him submit.

They had a segment where Nikki Bella came to the ring saying it was mostly Brie’s fault that she didn’t win in the Divas title match last night. She blamed Brie’s comments about her before the match at NOC for the loss. Brie came out and said Nikki is always blaming others for her shortcomings. Nikki told Brie she’s an embarrassment to the family name and should be called “Nikki’s Trashy Sister.” She insulted her for not taking Daniel Bryan’s name saying maybe she was ashamed to be married to a broken down, ugly troll. Brie slapped Nikki in the face and Nikki rolled out of the ring holding her face. New divas champ AJ Lee skipped to the ring for the match against Nikki.
