Report by Sean Hopkins of WrestlingNewsWorld.com
The show kicks off with a video package highlighting the main feuds heading into tonight. A good deal of time is spent on the Fatal Four way for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship match, as well as Cena/Rusev.
The pyro goes off and Michael Cole welcomes us to the show and immediately begins hyping the World Heavyweight Championship match. They immediately throw it to the ring, as Sheamus' music hits, and the Irishman makes his way down the aisle to a bit of heat from the crowd.
We get a quick recap of the match between Sheamus and Ziggler last month, where Sheamus was supposed to kiss Dolph's arse, and Sheamus low-blowed Dolph, and turned the tables. Ziggler is out next, and the show-off gets a much warmer reaction from the fans than his opponent.
Sheamus vs. Dolph Ziggler
Ziggler is pacing angrily before the match, and Sheamus shoves Dolph's face. When the bell rings, Ziggler attacks until he's shoved away by Sheamus. Ziggler comes back with a dropkick and a clothesline over the top rope. Ziggler heads to the apron and leaps off with a body press, wiping Sheamus out on the floor. Dolph brings things back into the ring, hanging Sheamus up on the top rope, then hitting a cross body from the top rope. Dolph is able to counter the Celtic cross into a roll up for two, and Sheamus comes up with a forearm to slow things down. Sheamus catches an attempted kick from Dolph, and drives his elbow into Dolph's knee. Dolph rolls to the floor and writhes in pain.
Ziggler makes it back into the ring, where Sheamus immediately begins stomping away at him. Sheamus picks him up and suplexes Dolph into the ring from the apron. Sheamus stomps at Ziggler's knee, then he brings Ziggler to his feet, only to drop him back down to the mat and lock in a rear chin lock. Ziggler is able to fight up, but Sheamus drives him right back down to the mat and keeps the hold locked in.
Ziggler fights to his feet again, and makes it out of the hold, but he runs right into a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker that's good for a two count. Sheamus gets to his feet and stands over Ziggler before backing up and kicking him in the chest. Sheamus stomps repeatedly at Ziggler's back, being backed off by the ref. Sheamus asks the crowd 'are you not entertained', which draws some heat. Sheamus drops Ziggler with another backbreaker and goes into another rear chin lock. Ziggler fights out quickly with a jawbreaker, and he catches a running Sheamus with a back elbow before side-stepping Sheamus, leading the Irishman to crash shoulder first into the ring post.
Both men are slow to their feet, where they begin trading right hands. Sheamus gets the upper hand with a knee to the gut, but Dolph comes back with a couple of running forearms, and a final huge flying forearm into a series of right hands. Ziggler hits a running dropkick on Sheamus in the corner before beating him down with a series of strikes. Ziggler is able to score with a giant DDT, but Sheamus kicks out at two.
Both men get to their feet once more, and Ziggler charges Sheamus with a running clothesline in the corner, and a series of knees to Sheamus' gut. Ziggler hikes up his trunks and gives Sheamus a bit of a 'stink face', causing Sheamus to roll out of the ring and begin retching, and grabbing for water.
Back in the ring Ziggler ducks a clothesline, but gets hot shotted. Sheamus misses the brogue kick, and Ziggler scores with the rocker dropper, but Sheamus kicks out at two!
Both men are up again and Sheamus fights off a sleeper attempt, but Ziggler is able to mount him for a series of punches in the corner. Sheamus counters the punches with a running sit-out powerbomb out of the corner, pinning Dolph for a two count.
Sheamus is the first to his feet, and he pulls Ziggler up and shoulders him for a running powerslam. Sheamus pins Ziggler, but he's still able to kick out at two. Sheamus is beginning to get frustrated as he pulls Ziggler up again and shoulders him for White Noise. Sheamus doesn't pin Ziggler, but instead locks in the cloverleaf. Ziggler struggles, but he crawls and reaches the bottom rope to force a break. Sheamus takes full advantage of the count, breaking at four.
Sheamus looks a bit surprised as Dolph rolls around in pain on the mat. Sheamus picks Ziggler up and drops him with a big right, then does it again. Sheamus picks up Dolph again, and Dolph head butts Sheamus in the face, and follows it up with a superkick for a quick near fall.
Sheamus stands and looks annoyed, backing up and calling for the Brogue kick. Sheamus hits Ziggler with the brogue kick while Ziggler's on his knees, and this one's over as Sheamus gets the three count. Ziggler looks to be busted open badly, most likely from the head butt.
Following the match, Sheamus poses at the top of the ramp, while Ziggler is attended to by physicians and officials at ringside.
Kane is shown backstage talking on the phone, telling someone he'll see them soon. Rollins walks in with J and J security. Rollins says we all know this is a huge night for both of them, so they should put their animosity aside and work together. Kane says Rollins made him lie down in the ring. Rollins says Kane has chokeslammed him more times than he can count. Kane says he goes against every decision. Rollins says that's his right. Kane says if he loses tonight, Kane will lose his job, but if he loses tonight, Rollins will lose his title too. And maybe if Rollins loses his title, Kane will teach him a lesson. Kane doesn't need this job, so maybe he'll stand idly by while he watches the title slip through Rollins' fingers. Kane hasn't decided what he'll do tonight, but Rollins will be the first to know. Rollins appreciates Kane's honesty. Rollins says if Kane does anything not in Rollins' best interests, losing his job will be the least of Kane's concerns. J and J security walk up and stare down Kane, but Kane simply laughs. Rollins walks away, followed shortly by Mercury and Noble.
Back in the arena, New Day make their way out into the arena. Xavier Woods asks the fans if they can feel the power of positivity taking over their body. They can do anything if they think positive. Kofi says what better place than Baltimore to show what the power of positivity can do. Big E asks if they're tired of being fat? Think positive. Tired of being unattractive? Think positive. Tired of having no friends? Think positive. They call out Adam Jones of the Baltimore Oriels who's sitting in the crowd holing up a replica World title, King calls out a couple of other Oriels sitting with Jones. Big E asks how he feels about the Oriels last winning a World series over thirty years ago? Think positive. Woods says they don't have to be losers forever. They can clap along and show the world that the city of Baltimore can finally change. The crowd claps along with New Day, but with a hearty 'New Day sucks!' chant to go along with it.

Ryback is shown getting ready backstage and Byron Saxton walks in to ask about his match with Bray Wyatt. Ryback doesn't know what to expect. Wyatt's tried to intimidate him with fear, and question himself. If he thinks Ryback is just some experimental lab rat in a maze, he's mistaken. Ryback doesn't fear Bray Wyatt, and tonight, the eater of worlds gets eaten. Ryback tells Byron to feed him more, then he walks off.
We get a video package highlighting some of the recent history between these two men that led up to this match.
Back in the arena, Bray Wyatt is the first man to make his way to the ring, carrying his lantern and walking out to a huge amount of cell phones held in the air.

WWE United States Championship I Quit Match
John Cena vs. Rusev
The bell rings and both men stare each other down from their side of the ring. Loud dueling 'let's go Cena/Cena sucks' chants. Rusev grabs a mic and begins speaking Russian. He says half of the people here already hate Cena. Do them a favor, swallow your pride, and say I Quit now, and Rusev will spare him the pain. The crowd chants that Rusev 'just said it'.
