Randy Orton, Sheamus & Big Show vs. The Shield
Roman Reigns and Sheamus start the match brawling aroung the ring, trading right hands and body blows in the corner – neither will let up. Sheamus takes down the Shield big man with a running axhandle. In comes Randy Orton, and the Viper goes to work picking apart the limbs of Reigns. Seth Rollins gets a tag for the Shield, but Orton backs him into the corner and goes to work with a ten-count of right hands, followed by a slingshot suplex.
Sheamus is back in, but Rollins takes him down with a dropkick to the knee, and now the numbers game begins on the Celtic Warrior. Sheamus fights back and gets the tag to Big Show, who comes into the match for the first time, against Dean Ambrose. Show throws Dean around the ring and pummels him into the corner. Show runs the ropes, but Ambrose dropkicks his knee and takes his legs out from under the Giant.
The heels isolate Big Show on the mat and come in and out with quick tags, not letting him get back to his feet. In comes Reigns, who is actually able to manhandle Big Show, locking in a side headlock. The Giant counters with a huge suplex, but Rollins gets a tag and takes Orton off the apron. Show gets a hot tag to Sheamus and plants Seth Rollins with a knee to the head, before taking him out to the apron and clubbing him with ten consecutive blows to the chest. Ambrose breaks it up, but then gets ten shots of his own! Rolling Senton by Sheamus, and then he picks up Ambrose and does another Rolling Senton right on top of the other Shield victim.
Sheamus and Reigns brawl to the outside, and Randy Orton comes out of nowhere to break it up an attack by the Shield. They get Sheamus up for the triple powerbomb, but Big Show comes out of nowhere with a huge spear on all four of them! Orton gets the tag, and snap suplexes all three members of Shield. Orton coils for the RKO on Ambrose, but Reigns comes out of nowhere with a spear of his own. Ambrose with the cover – 1….2….3.
