John Cena came out to hype the United States Championship after pointing to several members of the military in the crowd. He said the title is for all of them and has more meaning than ever before. Cena brought up his open challenge and out came NXT Champion Kevin Owens. Owens said he’d introduce himself but Cena already knows who he is and for all the people that don’t know who he is, they’re just a waste of time. Owens talked about how when Sami Zayn came out to challenge Cena he was injured, and it was because of Owens. He said he’s going to finish what he started on the NXT Live special. Cena told Owens it was a fine speech but he has a lot to learn. He said nobody there is a waste of time as there would be no Owens, Raw or WWE without the fans.
Cena said he had some veteran advice for Owens and said he doesn’t seem to have the same passion in his eyes that Zayn did when he looked at him. Cena said if Owens wants part of the open challenge to come get some, but Owens said he’s already got his prize, the NXT title. He said he and Cena will fight some day, but on his terms. Owens ended up kicking Cena and then powerbombing him, to leave him laying on the mat. He picked up both titles, but then dropped the US Title and stepped on it.
They announced the full list of competitors for the IC Title match at Elimination Chamber: Sheamus, King Barrett, R-Truth, Ryback and Rusev, with the final competitor to be announced later on Raw.

Ziggler hit a Zig Zag on him to get the win. Post-match, Cole got in the ring to ask Dolph how he’s feeling after last night’s head bump with Sheamus. Dolph joked that he’s fine and chicks love the scars. Cole informed Ziggler he’s the final competitor in the IC title match at Elimination Chamber. Ziggler said if he wins the title he’ll take on all comers. Lana came walking out and to the ring. The fans chanted “We want Lana,” and she smiled at them, then at Ziggler. She pulled in Dolph and kissed him. The fans chanted “one more time,” so Lana obliged the request. Rusev came storming down to the ring and yelled at Lana in Bulgarian. She slapped him and he got enraged. Ziggler made a save by hitting Zig Zag on Rusev and then left with Lana to go backstage.
Erick Rowan and Luke Harper defeated Fandango and Zack Ryder via pinfall. Harper hit a Superkick on Ryder late, and then Rowan slammed him for the pin.
The Bellas were walking backstage when Stephanie approached them. She acted sincere in saying she was wishing Brie’s husband the best as the superstars’ health is their top concern. She told Brie she arranged some counseling sessions to help her deal with it, so she wouldn’t need to go to the ring with Nikki tonight. Brie wasn’t happy by the orders, nor was Nikki.
Nikki Bella defeated Naomi via disqualification in a WWE Divas Title match. Late in the match, Nikki had control and went for the Rack Attack.

Paige hoisted the divas title up and paraded around the ring with it.
Backstage, it was revealed that Kevin Owens will face John Cena at the Elimination Chamber PPV.
The final segment featured Triple H, Stephanie, Kane and J&J Security as they did their “Architect of a Dream” bit to honor champion Seth Rollins.

Dean Ambrose came out to interrupt with Stephanie saying he has a lot of nerve. Ambrose demanded a title rematch at Elimination Chamber. He and Rollins ended up brawling to ringside with Ambrose getting the upperhand and taking out J&J. He put Rollins’ head on some cinder blocks and put his foot on Rollins’ head. Stephanie eventually screamed he could have his title match. Rollins got away, with Ambrose taking down J&J. Kane tried to subdue Ambrose, but ended up getting clotheslined down.
