Dean Ambrose and Cody Rhodes kick off the match. Ambrose attacks Rhodes with multiple kicks in the corner. The referee separates him and Ambrose gets rolled up and eliminated quickly. After this, The Uso's take out the other four men left. Goldust gets a huge pop and gets on the offensive. Swagger takes him down with a big body collision. Goldust gets taken down by Cesaro and the hot tag is made to Mysterio. He cleans the ring and hits a bulldog onto Swagger. Swagger tries to hit a powerbomb, but 619 is connected. Jimmy hits a superkick, Jey hits a splash from the top and Swagger is eliminated. Antonio Cesaro comes in and hits a dropkick and a huge European Uppercut. After a giant swing on Jey, Antonio does the same to Jimmy. Cody Rhodes eliminates Cesaro and it is down to 5-2. This is where Roman Reigns took over. He got his knees up on the midsection of Jimmy and hit an incredible spear. 4-2 is the numbers and Cody hits a moonsault for a two count. Roman reigns hits another spear, this time taking out Cody Rhodes.
We were at 3-2 and the pacing of the match is absolutely perfect. The speed picks up at the right time and the numbers begin to even out. It comes down to Mysterio and Goldust vs. Rollins and Reigns. One move that really caught my eye was a running dropkick that Rollins put onto Rey as he was hanging in the ropes. Rey eliminates Rollins and he attacks Rey before Reigns gets back into the ring. The ending came when Reigns spears Goldust and Mysterio to be the sole survivor.
