- The opener runs with pyro and crowd shots. Michael Cole welcomes us to the show with JBL. Mr. McMahon has underwent successful hip surgery and there is no timetable for his return.
- Cody Rhodes comes down the ramp with a mic. He says this show is a farce which is a word that his friend Damien Sandow taught him. He says his match with Sheamus isn't happening until he addresses this. He has waited 6 years to be champion but he isn't in the Elimination Chamber. He says the other guys have won and lost the title and they are failures. Cody grabs a chair and sits in the ring; he says he will sit here until Booker T comes out to give him his match. Cole reminds him that this is not SmackDown. Cody says to text Booker or call him but he isn't leaving.
Sheamus comes out and wants Cody to take a Brogue Kick like a man so they can give the fans what they came to see. Cody does a Sheamus impression and Sheamus says it sucked. Cody dismisses Sheamus and says he only wants Booker. Sheamus pretends to be Booker and calls Cody 'Sucka.' Cody says he'll go higher than Booker and Sheamus does a Vickie impression. Cody says he is connected as a 'Rhodes.' Sheamus asks him if he's really going to go into Mr. McMahon's hospital room and ask for a match. Cody says yes. Sheamus answers him as Vince and says he's fired. Cody clocks him in the head and Sheamus responds back, sending Cody to the floor.

Sheamus hits a nice suplex to keep Cody under control. He tosses Cody over the top but Cody hangs on and powers back in. Sheamus responds with the forearms in the ropes spot and knocks him off the apron. JBL says he almost knocked his mustache off.

- The Fandango vignette runs.
- Damien Sandow makes his way down the ramp. Cole asks JBL if he liked his tutorial on how to download the WWE App on RAW. JBL says he sounded like the teacher Matt Striker. Sandow says he is disgusted by the travesty we have just witnessed. He says Cody Rhodes should be in the Elimination Chamber. He calls Sheamus an albino and says he will avenge Cody's loss by defeating his arch nemesis: "Bearded goat-face, I summon thee." Daniel Bryan comes to the ring.
