When The Bizarre One finally tagged in Cody, the former Intercontinental Champion went after the champions with the fury of a man who had been assaulted in the most personal of ways. Clearly sending a message to the COO who fired him and the woman who disrespected his family, Rhodes took out all three members of The Shield with a belly full of fire and begged for more.

In that moment, the team that had been impossible to break apart began to fracture under the pressure applied by the Rhodes family. When Dean Ambrose jawed off with Dusty on the outside of the ring, he was bopped between the eyes with a fistful of leather belt and then put down with a Bionic Elbow. Reigns, setting his sights on a distracted Dusty, may have speared the WWE Hall of Famer on the concrete floor had Goldust not taken out the big Samoan from out of nowhere.

That mayhem on the outside left Cody alone in the ring with Rollins. After shaking off an attempted rollup, the youngest son sent his opponent across the canvas and then took him on a one-way trip to the Cross Rhodes.

The First Niagara Center became unglued as the official counted three and Cody, Goldust and Dusty embraced in the ring in a purely emotional moment. They had done it. They had stood up to “The Authority,” they had broken the unbreakable Shield and they had saved their family’s legacy.

Did the victory mark the end of the war between the McMahons and the Rhodes? That’s hard to say, but when the history books are written, tonight’s battle will go to a plumber’s son and his two boys, who fought — and won — as a family.
