After The Match
AJ turns her attention to Layla on the floor. She runs up the ramp and
tackles her down. She drags her back to ringside and slams her face-first on the
barricade. And again. She grabs the Divas title and skips back up the ramp as
her music plays. After this, we head to a commercial break.
Backstage: The Authority & Randy Orton
Backstage we see Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. In walks Randy Orton. He
says before he goes out there and destroys Dolph Ziggler he wants to discuss one
thing. He talks about Seth Rollins talking about how he’s the future of WWE and
he wants the spotlight. He says that’s okay with hmi as long as he doesn’t take
his spotlight. He says he knows Cena and Ambrose can beat Rollins, but neither
of them can beat him. He asks The Authority to give him the loser between Cena
and Ambrose at Hell In A Cell. HHH says that sounds good. Steph tells him she
likes her enthusiasm. JBL ends the segment on commentary by saying, “TWO Hell In
A Cell matches?!”
Wyatt Family Vignette
Another Wyatt Family vignette airs, seemingly focused on Erick Rowan this
time. We see a lot of the same quick-cuts in the woods, barns, etc., only this
time, Rowan and the sheep mask is the focus, more so than Luke Harper. Bray is
talking a lot, but most of the visuals are of Rowan. Rowan even has a line or
two in the package talking about how “he’s going to hurt you, just like you hurt
me.” Bray says “they shall feel the smoke of his burning.”
Dolph Ziggler vs. Randy Orton
After that bizarre Wyatt Family vignette, Dolph Ziggler’s music hits. The WWE
Intercontinental Champion makes his way to the ring for his match with “The
Viper” Randy Orton. With that being said, we head to commercial during his ring
When we return from commercial, Ziggler is shown in the ring. Cesaro is shown
joininng the gang on commentary for this match. Randy Orton’s theme hits and out
he comes for this one-on-one match.
Cesaro talks about how Ziggler owes him a rematch for the I-C title on
commentary as “The Viper” makes his way to the ring to a pretty positive
reaction from the fans in Atlanta. The regular announcers talk about the Orton
match at Hell In A Cell that was confirmed earlier (the loser of the
Cena-Ambrose match later tonight).
Straight from the word go, “The Viper” is in control of this one. He takes
his time and slowly takes apart the I-C champ as Cesaro argues with the
announcers on commentary.
Ziggler finally starts getting in some offense, including a picture-perfect
dropkick. We see Seth Rollins make his way out to the top of the stage as we
immediately head to a mid-match commercial.
We return from commercial to see Rollins still on the stage and Orton in
control over Ziggler in the ring. Rollins slowly creeps his way to the ring as
Ziggler starts fighting back. His comeback attempt doesn’t last long, however,
as Orton regains control of the offense.
Ziggler finally gets in some offense, but during his big comeback, out of
nowhere, while in mid-air, Ziggler falls down right into an RKO from Orton. That
was actually pretty awesome. After the match, Rollins enters the ring, hits a
Curb Stomp on Ziggler and we head to commercial.
Winner: Randy Orton
Seth Rollins vs. Jack Swagger (with Zeb Colter)
When we return from commercial, we see Rollins still looking proud of what he
just did. Highlights are shown of Rollins’ Curb Stomp to Ziggler before the
Out comes Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter. The fans are loudly behind “The Real
American” in Atlanta tonight. The bell rings and here we go with one-on-one
Rollins gets in some good offense early on, but eventually, Swagger’s size
and strength is too much for “Mr. Money In The Bank.” Out on the floor is
Swagger, where Rollins hits a big dive, splashing onto him as we see Randy Orton
make his way to the top of the ramp.
“The Viper” slowly makes his way down the ramp as the action continues. The
announcers remind us that Orton is doing what Rollins just did during his match,
as we head to a mid-match commercial.
When we return from commercial, we see the action is continuing back in the
ring as Orton watches from ringside now, as he has made his way down the
In the ring, as the fans in Atlanta chant “we the people,” Swagger goes to
work on Rollins. He goes for the Patriot Lock, however Rollins rolls out of it.
Moments later, Rollins rolls Swagger up for the 1-2-3.
Winner: Seth Rollins
After The Match
After the match, Orton gets in the ring and nails Swagger with his finisher,
the RKO, the same way Rollins hit his finisher, the Curb Stomp, on Orton’s
opponent (Ziggler) earlier tonight. The two go face-to-face before Rollins exits
the ring and heads up the ramp. We head to commercial on that note.
Backstage: Renee Young With Dean Ambrose
Backstage, Renee Young is with Dean Ambrose. Ambrose, the crazy man, talks
about his issues with John Cena and their issues with Seth Rollins. Ambrose
closes by saying they’re all on the “highway to hell,” in AC/DC fashion.
Backstage: Tom Phillips With Big Show
From there, we go to Tom Phillips who is with Big Show. He asks about his
issues with Rusev and how he’s in a position to stand up for all of America
tonight. Big Show talks about knocking Rusev unconscious. Big Show says he
proved Rusev is not unbeatable. He says he’s going to knock him out tonight.
Rusev (with Lana) vs. Big Show
After the backstage segments, Rusev’s theme hits and out he comes with his
Russian flag, and his smoking hot valet, Lana. As they make their way to the
ring, we head to a commercial break.
When we return from commercial, we see Rusev and Lana in the ring. Lana talks
about the same junk she always talks about, only this time with a little twist
on it. She talks about Indians and casinos. She ties it into Columbus Day and
then takes a cheap dig at the Atlanta Braves to get some cheap heat. It
As has been the case for the past week or so, Rusev takes the mic from Lana,
babbles in another language as the fans do the tomahawk thing that Braves fans
do, along with the chant. He then references Big Show and says his actions will
have consequences. The fans in A-T-L chant “U.S.A.,” which stops Rusev dead in
his tracks. He hands the mic back to Lana for a quick “Shut-Tup” (again, not a
typo). Rusev takes the mic back and says if Big Show has a spine, he’s going to
rip it off with his hands.
With that said, finally, (thank god, finally), Big Show’s music hits. The big
man storms his way down to the ring and appears to be in a bad mood. The bell
rings and Big Show immediately forces Rusev to eat a big boot. Big Show
manhandles Rusev outside the ring for a bit and then throws him back into the
ring, where he continues to deliver punishment. Big Show continues to dominate
Rusev, as the action goes back to the floor. It’s a one-sided match thus
In the corner of the ring, Big Show pleases the fans in Atlanta with an
Atlanta Braves style “tomahawk” gesture before hitting his “shhh–chop!” spot.
The fans popped big for that. Moments later, however, Rusev hits a crazy
dropkick to finally get his first bit of offense in this match. He gets in some
more offense and knocks Big Show out to the floor as we head to a mid-match
We’re back from the break and we see Rusev still in firm control of the
offense. Within a minute, however, Big Show fires up. Rusev cuts him off and
applies “The Accolade.” We see Mark Henry run to rnigside. Eventually, Henry
attacks Rusev and Big Show’s is disqualified.
Winner via DQ: Rusev
