Sheamus & Randy Orton vs Rhodes Scholars
Sheamus takes Cody down with a hiptoss and follows with a shoulder block, then Cody throws a few punches and whips him across the corner. Sheamus floats over and Cody tags out, then Sheamus throws Sandow into the corner and punches him. Sandow turns the tables and stomps him a few times, then he whips him across the ring but Sheamus catches him with a knife edge chop. Sheamus ties him in the ropes and clubs his chest, then he knocks Cody off the apron and throws Sandow out to the floor. Cody gets up and hits a Disaster Kick off the announcer’s table, then we get back from a break to see Cody punching Sheamus near the ropes.
Sandow tags in and punches Sheamus on the apron, then Sheamus reaches for a tag but Sandow pummels him in the corner. Sheamus throws a few punches but Sandow backs him into the corner, then he kicks Sheamus in the face and argues with the referee. Sandow backs up and runs towards the corner, but Sheamus kicks him in the face before pulling himself to the top rope and hitting a Battering Ram. Both men tag out and Orton hits some clotheslines and a powerslam, then he follows it with an exploder suplex and a hanging DDT. Sandow hits him from behind but Sheamus Brogue Kicks him out of the ring, then Orton turns around and drops Cody with a RKO for the win.
The Shield’s music cues up right after the bell, then they appear on the Titantron and Dean Ambrose tells them they don’t have to be afraid. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns say ‘or maybe they do…’ then Ambrose goes over the list of people they have attacked so far. Rollins says they have laid them all out, but those ‘criminals’ still steal from them because Rock and John Cena still have the main event at Wrestlemania. They say they don’t even have a match yet, but Ambrose will fix that by challenging the two of them and a partner of their choosing. Orton and Sheamus both say they are in, and Rollins says the showcase of the immortals will now stand for justice, and they will believe in The Shield.
