A video package recapped The Shield beating Evolution at Payback, Batista quitting, and Seth Rollins turning on The Shield Monday night on Raw… In the arena, Triple H came out onto the stage with a big smile on his face. He looked back to the entrance way where Seth Rollins emerged. The two stood side by side on the stage before heading down to the ring. The crowd chanted "you sold out" at Rollins.

Triple H said he wasn’t there to rub it in anyone's face. He said he was there to give answers to the many questions about Seth Rollins. He said that Rollins was responsible for the most dominant group in WWE history, The Shield. He said they crushed giants, legends, and champions. He said they even defeated Evolution. He said people want to know why Rollins would walk away from that. He asked Seth why he did what he did on Monday night.

Rollins said that everybody wants an explanation for what he did to his brothers, but the only person who knows why he did what he did and the only person that needs to know is himself. Dolph Ziggler's music hit and he came onto the stage with a mic. He said he's probably be pushed further down the totem pole for what he's about to do. He said he never liked The Shield but he respected Rollins' vibe. He acknowledged that The Shield did big things, but said Rollins is a traitor. He called Rollins a sellout and the crowd picked up the "you sold out" chant again.

Rollins whispered to Triple H and Triple H said that Rollins has done things that Ziggler never has and never will, including selling out night after night. He said that Ziggler was going to catch a beating for this and told him to get to the ring for a match with Rollins… [C]

1. Seth Rollins vs. Dolph Ziggler. Rollins worked Ziggler over in the opening minutes with some basic offense. Around the two minute mark, Ziggler caught Rollins with a running crossbody, a dropkick, and a clothesline that sent Rollins to ringside. Rollins took a powder by Triple H while Ziggler held the ring.

The two squared off back in the ring where Rollins regained control of the match. Triple H was shown smiling at ringside while Rollins had Ziggler grounded in a chinlock. Around the four minute mark, Ziggler used a tilt-a-whirl takeover into the sleeper hold, but Rollins dropped down with a backpack stunner. Rollins followed up with a dropkick that sent Ziggler to ringside. [C]

Back from break, Ziggler tried to fight out of a rest hold but Rollins drove him into the middle turnbuckle with a reverse STO. Triple H was talking to the commentators and remarked at how Rollins could adapt to anything. In the ring, Ziggler hit several kicks to Rolling before planting him with the delayed jumping DDT. Both guys were down before they traded "yay/boo" forearms and Ziggler fired up.

Ziggler hit rapid shots in the corner and a neckbreaker for a two-count and Rollins rolled to ringside. Ziggler met him out there with a great dropkick but the landing clearly rattled Ziggler. Back in the ring, Ziggler connected with the Fameasser after a good back-and-forth exchange for a near-fall. Rollins hit a kick to Ziggler's head from the apron and went to the top rope, but Ziggler met him up there and hit a super bulldog for a great near-fall. Rollins reversed the Zig Zag and dropped Ziggler with a kick. Rollins wore Ziggler out with strikes before hitting the bucklebomb and the Curb Stomp for the win…

During the break, Cesaro sent Barrett crashing into the ringsteps. Live, RVD went for a dive through the ropes but Cesaro rocked him with an uppercut.

Wyatt's blip played and Bray was backstage where he cut a promo. He said that when he was in the box on Sunday night, he felt the darkness and the reaper pulling him down. He said he was afraid until he remembered what she told him. She told him the sharks would circle him. She said in his death he will find his rest, but in his rebirth he will grow much stronger. She said he'd become their leader. His voice would sooth and his hand would lead armies. He said there is nothing left to fear. "Brothers and sisters, I am reborn. Join me…"

Michael Cole hyped 'Championship Ultimatum' coming up next… [C]

Michael Cole threw to a video package recap of NXT Takeover. Hooray! It showed a detailed recap of Charlotte vs. Natalya… Back in the arena, Natalya was already in the ring before Alicia Fox made her entrance.

5. Natalya vs. Alicia Fox. The two worked some athletic back-and-forth stuff before Nattie hit a double-arm suplex at the minute mark and Fox went to ringside. Fox began yelling and the commentators talked about how crazy she was. Fox offered to shake Nattie's hand but Nattie pulled her to the mat and stomped the hand. Nattie slapped Fox, Fox dared her to do it again, and so she did. Fox took control seconds later when she dropped Nattie throat-first on the bottom rope.

Fox hit a Northern Lights suplex for a two-count and avoided a Sharpshooter attempt, but Nattie reversed a tilt-a-whirl attempt by Fox into a pin for the win.

Natalya defeated Alicia Fox in about 3:20.

Fox crawled around the ring after the match and then growled at ringside. She cornered Lilian Garcia in the timekeeper's area and blamed her for ringing the bell. She yelled that she wasn’t finished and rang the bell some more. Her music hit and she made her way to the back… The commentators recapped the recent Daniel Bryan storyline where if he can compete at Money in the Bank, he'll face Kane in a stretcher match. If he cannot, the MITB ladder match will be for the vacated WWE World Championship. They hyped an update on Daniel Bryan for Raw on Monday… [C]

Back from break, Santino Marella and Emma power-walked their way to the ring. Bo Dallas was out next. He cut a promo telling everyone that if they can be better than excuses, they can be victorious. All they have to do is Bolieve.

6. Bo Dallas vs. Santino Marella (w/ Emma). Bo hit the first armdrag and took a celebration lap around the ring. Back in the ring, Santino accepted Bo's handshake and then took Bo down with an armdrag of his own. Santino rolled out to ringside for a celebration with the trumpet. Bo was visibly bothered and he dropped Santino with a clothesline when he got back in the ring. Bo hit the Bodog for the win moments later.

Bo Dallas beat Santino Marella in about 2:10.

Backstage, Renee Young welcomed Big Show onto the interview set. Show said that Orton, Triple H, and Rollins are bullies. Show said he hasn’t always been so big and handsome and he got picked on when he was younger. He said a bully kicked a kickball into his face when he was tying his shows. Shwo said he found that bully alone one day and you can imagine what happened then. He said he's going to let his fist fly at the Viper tonight and then he'll know what it feels like to be knocked out by a giant… [C]

Back from commercial, Michael Cole hyped that Reigns and Ambrose of The Shield would be back this Monday night on Raw… Backstage Byron Saxton interviewed Randy Orton. Orton said that under normal circumstances he wouldn't be enthusiastic about facing Big Show one on one but he had to take care of business tonight.
