RAW Opening Segment
The show opens with Elias in the ring and ready to sing us a song.
He says he carries the power of wind in his fist and plays a few bars on his guitar before launching into his usual spiel. He claims to be WWE’s most valuable asset and he’ll become even more valuable at Money in the Bank when he wins the Intercontinental Championship, because on that night the entire world will see that WWE stands for Walk With Elias.
He then talks about how he left Seth lying in a pile of dirt and pain last week, but think about how he felt, smashing one of his beloved guitars? He took that pain and turned it into the song he’s gonna sing right now. It’s about how Seth is going to lose his title much like a sports analogy that I do not understand but that gets a decent rise out of the crowd.
Enter Seth Rollins. He prowls around the ringside area as Elias waves his guitar around before electing to head under the ring for a steel chair to equalize things. We get a standoff in the ring, they circle, feigning strikes, and finally the Drifter makes his move and Seth swats the guitar out of his hands! He’s got Elias cornered… JINDER MAHAL ATTACKS FROM BEHIND!
ROMAN REIGNS MAKES THE SAVE! Right hands for everybody, including Sunil Singh! He helps Rollins up and the Shield lads stand tall.
Enter Kurt Angle. He tells Elias and Jinder they’re not going anywhere tonight, because we’re gonna have a tag team match, playa. (He did not say playa.) The match will start right now… or after the break, at least.

The Drifter blindsides Rollins, putting boots to him, Hot Shotting him across the top rope and following it up with a choke. Seth blocks a punch, fires his own back, gets whipped and taken out with a lariat. Standing neck crank follows, pulling an arm across into a cutthroat choke, and then into a reverse chinlock when he nearly gets away.

Tag to Mahal, whip to the corner, boot up, Seth crawling, he passes Jinder to the floor, the way is clear… TAG TO THE BIG DOG!

Reigns out with right hands and he catches Jinder with the Samoan drop! Crawling, reaching… Tags made! Lou Thesz Press into mounted punches, off the ropes, Sling Blade, clear the apron, diving blockbuster… Nope!
Slow to capitalize as Elias drags himself up the ropes, up and over to the apron, dodging knees, Falcon Arrow… Jinder breaks the pin up! Mahal looking for Khallas, denied with a Superman Punch, the Big Dog slides to the floor after… Drive-by on the Drifter! Avada Kedavra follows it up, Rollins is fired up, he tunes the band up… but Sunil Singh runs interference.
Jinder gets the better of Roman and throws him into the steps while he’s distracted with Sunil, Elias from behind with a schoolboy, no good! Enzuigiri from Rollins and he throws a suicide dive on Mahal that torpedoes his own neck into the barricade! Singh has a steel chair but Seth recovers before he can hit him and takes the chair from him! Back in, Elias catches him… DDT on the chair but referee John Cone doesn’t disqualify the Drifter!
Hooking the leg and the heels get the victory with Drift Away on Seth Rollins.
