* Bray Wyatt summons The Undertaker’s soul through his urn, which is originally empty, but exudes a plume of smoke. Lighting strikes Bray’s rocking chair in the center of the ring and it goes up in flames as Wyatt watches on laughing hysterically. The voice of The Undertaker comes over the loud speakers an Wyatt will get his match with Undertaker at WrestleMania 31.

* Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins, Randy Orton (handicap match) — J&J Security in tow and they end up arguing with Orton who decks one of them. Rollins sends them away. After some brawling between Rollins and Reigns and both laid out on the canvas Rollins goes to tag Orton who then takes away his hand to prevent Rollins from tagging out. This allows Reigns to hit Rollins with the Spear and pin. After the match Orton works over Rollins saying, “You remember what you did to me?” He takes him outside the ring and continuously slams him into the steel steps and announce table. Orton asks if he thinks he’d be so stupid to join the Authority again. Orton smashes Rollins badly outside the ring with a folding chair as he crawls up and down the aisle between the fans. Orton finishes him off with an RKO on the announce table, shattering it, much to the pleasure of those in attendance.
