Fandango (with Summer Rae) vs. Santino Marella (with Emma)
When we return from commercial, Fandango and Summer Rae are finishing up their ring entrance. After that, Santino Marella’s music hits and out comes the master of the Cobra, accompanied by Emma. We see highlights of Emma working in NXT. The bell rings and it’s time for some one-on-one action.
Fandango quickly gains the upper-hand over Santino. Fandango stomps away at Santino on the mat and follows that up with a big elbow smash. Michael Cole points out that Fandango claimed he would be doing a special dance tonight to help Denver get over losing the Super Bowl to the Seahawks. Meanwhile, Santino finally mounts a bit of offense in the match.
A light “San-tin-o” chant breaks out as Santino fires up on offense with a comeback. Santino brings out The Cobra. Summer Rae jumps up on the apron but Emma runs over and picks her up with a fireman’s carry. Emma spins around and slams Summer down. Santino comes over to Emma and gets ready to kiss her. Before he can, however, Fandango attacks him. Fandango quickly pins Santino and that’s all she wrote.
Renee Young Interviews Mark Henry
Backstage we see an angry Mark Henry walking. Renee Young stops him and asks him about the match with Dean Ambrose last week. Henry complains about being screwed and says tonight isn’t about winning or losing, tonight is about inducting Roman Reigns into the Hall Of Pain. He says that’s what he does.
Roman Reigns vs. Mark Henry
The Shield’s music hits and out comes the trio through the crowd. Roman Reigns enters the ring as we head to commercial. After the break we will have one-on-one action with Reigns battling Mark Henry.
When we return from commercial, Mark Henry is in the middle of his ring entrance. The bell rings and a decently loud “Roman Reigns” chant breaks out. The two lock up and we have a bit of a “who’s stronger” type of back-and-forth going between these two. Henry gets the better of it and nails Reigns with a big boot off the ropes. Henry goes to work on Reigns in the corner, but Reigns starts fighting back.
Reigns nails Henry with an impressive-looking Samoan Drop on the big man. That looked pretty cool. Henry starts fighting back and hitting Reigns with some Junkyard Dog-like headbutts on the ground. Reigns fights back and knocks Henry on his ass. Reigns nails Henry with his trademark Superman Punch and is now calling for the spear. He nails him with it. 1-2-3. Reigns wins.
Winner: Roman Reigns
After The Match
After the match, Dean Ambrose has a facial reaction like he’s jealous of Reigns’ impressive performance against Henry. Ambrose, in true heel fashion, starts stomping away at Henry like a sucker. Out of nowhere, The Wyatt Family cuts in on the titan tron. Bray Wyatt sings “I’ve got the joy down in my heart” song. He talks about having excitement for what is to come. He talks about crushing The Shield’s bones and then asks them if in the end was it all worth it. Luke Harper asks if they’re willing to die for this. Roman Reigns gets on the mic from the ring and tells them they should come out here and say all that noise. Bray says it’s funny because he was thinking the exact same thing. The Wyatt Family’s music hits and out they come.
A semi-loud “Shield, Shield, Shield” chant breaks out. The Wyatt Family theme music cuts out and they slowly approach the ring. They hop up on the apron. Bray enters the ring as we see The Shield, already in the ring, looking on. Reigns takes a few steps forward. Ambrose and Rollins eventually follow. Bray nearly does the same, but ends up back-tracking and telling Luke Harper and Erick Rowan to do the same. They exit the ring. Bray looks on outside the ring and smiles. Michael Cole points out the collision between those two factions will happen this Sunday at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.
Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show Match Announced
As we return from commercial, Goldust and Cody Rhodes vs. Ryback and Curtis Axel is announced as the Elimination Chamber Kickoff Show match for this Sunday.
Backstage: Goldust, Cody Rhodes & Bad News Barrett
From there, we see Goldust and Cody Rhodes playing with some WWE toys backstage. Rhodes says this is nice, noting that they didn’t get to play like this when they were kids. Goldust talks about some of the weird stuff he was into as a kid. Rhodes alludes to Goldust being a freak. As they continue to play, we hear “I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news.” In walks Bad News Barrett, who knocks all their toys down. He laughs and walks away. That’s it.
Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger
As the backstage segment ends, we see the last few seconds of Kofi Kingston’s ring entrance. Jack Swagger is already in the ring. The bell sounds to kick off this one-on-one match. On commentary, Michael Cole talks about Swagger being the number one contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship, a title he will challenge for against Big E. this Sunday at the Elimination Chamber PPV. As Swagger beats up Kingston in the ring, the crowd breaks into a random “JBL” chant. A “CM Punk” chant slowly starts up, but very quickly dies down.
Meanwhile, Swagger hits a big Swagger Bomb off the middle ropes for a near fall. Swagger continues to punish Kingston, whipping him into the turnbuckles with force. Kingston nails Swagger with a big dropkick out of nowhere off of the middle ropes. Kingston follows that up with a big kick. Kingston fires up on offense and is flying all over the place on Swagger now.
Kingston hits the S.O.S. on Swagger out of nowhere. 1-2…Swagger just barely gets his foot on the ropes to break the count. Kingston hits a big frogsplash-type cross-body off the top on Swagger. Seconds later, Swagger locks Kingston in the Patriot Lock. Kingston eventually taps out. Swagger wins.
Winner: Jack Swagger
Big E. vs. Drew McIntyre & Jinder Mahal
Before Swagger can even celebrate, the WWE Intercontinental Champion Big E’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Swagger backs down and leaves the ring. We head to a commercial on that note.
When we return from commercial, we see both Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre in the ring. This will be a handicap match. Both guys charge after Big E. and he blasts them both down with a double-clothesline. Zeb Colter gets on the mic and says they’re going to stand by and watch his match. He continues to talk throughout the entire match. He gets some cheap heat by saying Swagger is going to beat Big E. like the Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.
Big E. does his best to ignore Colter, who hasn’t stopped talking throughout this entire match. Mahal and McIntyre are finally getting the upper-hand now in the match as Colter continues to trash talk him from the floor. For the record, both Mahal and McIntyre are in the match the entire time together, no tagging or anything like that. It’s literally 2-on-1 the entire time.
Anyways, Langston tries fighting back as Colter again keeps up his trash talk on the mic from outside the ring. Big E. is having his way now with both of the 3MB members. Big E. hits his Big Ending finisher on both guys. 1-2-3. Big E. wins.
Winner: Big E.
After The Match
Big E. gets on the mic and tells Colter that he hopes they have diapers his size, because after this Sunday, his mouth won’t be the only thing full of crap.
