Kofi tags Brodus Clay who hits Rollins with a headbutt and tags Tensai for some tandem offense. Tensai hits Rollins with a splash in the corner and climbs to the 2nd buckle but Ambrose and Roman Reigns pull Rollins to safety from the floor.
Ambrose distracts Tensai from the apron as Rollins sneaks back in behind Tensai and takes control. Rollins hits a kick to the back of Tensai's head and they all get a go in the corner like a pack of wolves. Reigns tags in and roars before going to work on Tensai. Tensai fights out of the corner but Reigns hits him with a Samoan Drop and gets a 2 as we go to break.
Reigns is still in control of Tensai in the ring as we return. Brodus gets the crowd riled up with claps. Reigns tags Ambrose who tags Rollins and they hit consecutive running dropkicks on Tensai. Tensai catches Rollins and drops him. Tensai seems disoriented but he finds his corner and tags Kofi who springboards in with a flurry on Ambrose.
Kofi connects with the Boom Drop and a crossbody off the top but Ambrose kicks out. They have some back and forth and Ambrose gets the upper hand with a clothesline to the face of Kofi and tags Rollins. Rollins comes in off the top with a knee to Kofi; Reigns his Clay with a spear as Rollins covers Kofi for the win.
Winners by pin: The Shield
Reigns sends Kofi into the security wall on the outside and Rollins and Ambrose stomp Clay in the corner. Tensai tries to come to the rescue but he is beaten down. They lift Tensai and hit the triple powerbomb. The Shield turns their attention back to Clay and hit him with the triple powerbomb. The Shield stands tall in the ring as they touch fists in solidarity.
- Cole sends to footage of Dolph Ziggler cashing in his briefcase and winning the World Title. Cole tries to cover for a heel getting cheered by saying, "As usual everyone was on their feet cheering whenever anyone cashes in a Money in the Bank contract."
- We go to Matt Striker who is standing by with...Big E Langston comes into the shot. He says the champ has no time for this. "He is out doing media, eating steak dinners with his girlfriend, training, preparing to take over the world. But I'm here, you should interview me." Striker asks him what it was like debuting at WrestleMania.
Big E mocks him in his "white person voice" and says, "Gee Striker, it was a blast. It was like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Flag Day, Easter all rolled into one." Langston gets serious and says he remembers losing but also remembers the joy of winning his first match on RAW and he is about to have that same feeling right now. We go to break.
- Stills of WrestleMania are shown to the Victory instrumental from Puffy and The Notorious B.I.G. which is basically an interpolation of Going The Distance from the Rocky soundtrack.
