Reaction: This is the match of the night. Is anyone really surprised? What I took out of it was this: The Shield, all three men, will succeed. Seth Rollins turning his back on his teammates was somewhat surprising, but it makes sense. The glue of the group has always been the third wheel, undeservingly so. Rollins has the best wrestling ability in the ring and is only going to improve his character outside of this gimmick. When he left, it gave us an insight on what WWE thinks. They think that all three members will ultimately be critical pieces in the future of this company. Rollins vs. Ambrose vs. Reigns is bound to happen. Will they prolong the inevitable?

Summer Rae misses a splash to the outside and Emma locks in a submission move. Emma dives onto Summer Rae and then locks in the Emma Lock. Emma makes Summer Rae tap out.
Reaction: This was not a terrible booking decision. The crowd got an extremely hot match and had 20 minutes of drama. There needed to be a nice transition back into the fans catching their breath. I really wish Emma would use this gimmick of some sort of importance. I am already tired of seeing these four in different matches each week.
