“No Chance in Hell” hits as Vince McMahon heads to the ring. McMahon grabs a microphone. “I came out here tonight to settle a score. I would have settled it last week, but unfortunately I had to undergo dental surgery,” said McMahon. He said he’s going to do something tonight he should have done several weeks ago. “Roman Reigns, get out here.”
Roman Reigns’ music hits and the WWE World Heavyweight Champion raises his title high with the audience up in the rafters. Reigns heads down towards the ring. We see footage from last Monday of a very upset Stephanie McMahon backstage.
McMahon said one day his son-in-law will get revenge against Reigns. He talks about Reigns disrespecting Stephanie. The Brooklyn crowd starts having fun with McMahon and Reigns tells the “old man” to speak up. McMahon said no one disrespects his family, including the Superman punch he landed on McMahon. “This is my ring. I own this ring. I own that WWE World Championship belt. That’s mine, not yours. I own you,” adds McMahon. Reigns said this is the problem with “rich snobs” and McMahon cuts him off saying he’s a “freaking billionaire.” Reigns said McMahon doesn’t own him or his title. He said “we” own this, the supporters of Roman Reigns. The Brooklyn crowd starts up a “YES” chant. McMahon asks Reigns how long he thinks he will be champion. McMahon tells the crowd to shut up when they start up a loud “DANIEL BRYAN” chant. Reigns said McMahon stirred up the crowd. A loud “CM PUNK” chant starts up as Reigns said he isn’t scared of what McMahon may do. McMahon brings up The Wild Samoans and that Reigns is “one generation away from a bone” in his nose. He talks about putting his Uncle Afa and his father Sika through hell. Reigns pushes McMahon. McMahon falls back and says, “My neck. My neck.”
Stephanie McMahon’s music hits and she runs out calling for help. Stephanie said Reigns just put his hands on a 70 year old man and demands officers arrest Reigns right now. She gets in the ring to check on Vince and tells the officers in suits to “arrest that man” pointing at Reigns. One of the officers refuses and said they were hired to be security and that’s it. Stephanie said they just saw Reigns put his hands on her 70 year old “geriatric” father. She gets angry and demands Reigns be arrested now. One of the officers tells Stephanie to back off or she will be arrested right now. Vince steps in and tells everyone to calm down. He starts arguing with the officer and the officer said he might even arrest Vince. “Calm down or you are going to jail,” said the officer to Vince. Vince puts his hands on the officer and more officers enter the ring. The officer in a suit tells Vince to back off right now. He tells the officers to “cuff him” and Stephanie tries to stop them. “He didn’t mean to,” yells Stephanie as officers put handcuffs on McMahon. Reigns holds the mic near the officer and tells them to get him out of here. Reigns is smiling as Stephanie says they can’t do this.
The police escort Vince out of the ring and through the crowd. Stephanie runs up to Vince saying she will take care of it.
During the break, we see police putting Vince McMahon in the back of a police car. The car takes off as Stephanie is screaming, “Dad! Dad!”
Kevin Owens is inside the ring as we head back inside the arena.

We see “Breakout Star of the Year” highlights for Neville winning a 2015 Slammy.
The bell rings and Neville stuns Kevin Owens quickly. Neville goes up top and Owens hits the ropes to trip him up. Neville counters an early Pop Up Powerbomb attempt by Owens with a roll up and gets the pinfall on Owens! Owens can’t believe it.
After the match, Kevin Owens immediately attacks Neville sending him through the ropes. Owens then tosses Neville back first into the ring barricade. Owens grabs Neville and launches him into the timekeepers barricade. Owens crotches Neville into the steel ring post, hits big forearms to the back and then drops him back down on the ground. Owens gets in a few stomps and forearms over Neville as WWE referees break it up. They get Owens to back off as we see a replay of the finish. Back live, Owens attacks Neville again as more WWE officials back off a very upset Owens at ringside.
We return live and see WWE officials helping Neville. A replay is shown of Neville reversing the Pop Up Powerbomb, rolling up Kevin Owens to get the pinfall victory and Owens attacking Neville repeatedly at ringside after the match. Back live, we hear the crowd getting loud as Owens runs down the ramp and levels Neville with a huge clothesline! Owens then tosses Neville into the steel ring steps, charges in again yelling, “You think you’re the breakout star!?” Owens gets Neville prepped for a Pop Up Powerbomb when Dean Ambrose runs out. Ambrose and Owens brawl. Ambrose tosses Owens into the barricade and throws tons of right hands. Owens sends Ambrose into the steel ring post. Owens tosses Ambrose to the ring.
