The opening segment featured Seth Rollins coming out to the ring alone. A beeping truck backed into the arena bringing the destroyed Cadillac from Raw. Paul Heyman walked out and said he is the advocate for the man who destroyed that car. He talked about how Rollins will be alone on the 19th at Battleground when he loses the title to Brock Lesnar. Rollins ended up getting in the last word though saying that he’ll be the only man to walk out of Battleground and as the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
