* Seth Rollins opens the show to address the Baltimore crowd. Rollins declares himself the man. Sting appears on the titantron with Seth’s statue. He tells Rollins to come and get it. … This brings out Sheamus and his MITB briefcase. He reminds Rollins he could cash in anytime, even at Night of Champions, and even if Rollins successfully defends both his titles.

* Rollins runs into Stephanie McMahon backstage and wants to know if HHH has a plan to deal with Sting and Sheamus. HHH tells Rollins to focus on what’s important, being ready for NOC, so sets him up with two matches tonight, one against Intercontinental Champion Ryback, and then he’ll team up with New Day to take on Prime Time Players and John Cena.

* Sasha Banks vs. Paige — Just as Paige is about to pin Sasha, she gets distracted by Naomi who starts to rush in the ring, this allows Sasha to roll Paige over for the pin.

* Kevin Owens confronts Ryback backstage during an interview with Renee. He tells Ryback he just wants to wish him good luck in his upcoming match with Rollins, and be careful not to bite off more than he can chew.

* Seth Rollins vs. Ryback (Champion vs. Champion match / no title on line) — Rollins has Ryback just about beat when Sting appears on the titantron and asks him what he’s doing and he’s waiting for him. This distraction allows Ryback to roll Rollins up for the pin. After the match Sting is shown putting his mask on Rollins’ statue. This of course infuriates the heavyweight champ.

* Summer Rae and Rusev take to the ring as Summer apologizes for her recent indiscretion with Ziggler. She said it was a moment of weakness and meant nothing. “You betrayeded me,” says Rusev. “But I accept your apology.” He blames Ziggler for this and says Summer is the victim, and so is Lana. This brings out Ziggler. He says he has a message from Lana and gives him a super kick to the chin that flattens him. Rusev takes off with Summer in tow. Lana is not there tonight due to a supposed broken wrist, though Rusev it was a broken heart.

Her teammates were unable to help.
