The show opens with a video package highlighting the main feuds heading into tonight's show.

We also get a look at every other Championship match on the card, fitting for the theme of tonight's show.
The pyro hits and Michael Cole welcomes us to the show, and immediately begins hyping the fact that every WWE title will be on the line tonight.
We send it right to the ring for the first championship match of the night, as Ryback makes his way down to the ring to defend his Intercontinental Championship. Ryback doesn't get too much of a reaction out of the fans, but he does seem to have at least a few supporters in Houston tonight.
Kevin Owens is out next, and he gets a pretty sizable pop from the fans on his way down the aisle.
