There aren’t many more effective ways to rile up Seth Rollins than by calling him “gutless,” but that’s exactly what Bray Wyatt did in advance of their first-ever singles match in Raw’s main event, and The Kingslayer was out to make sure The New Face of Fear would regret it. Rollins won the match … but not in the way he would have liked.
Rollins put Wyatt on his heels almost immediately in the show-closing clash, forcing The Reaper of Souls to fight from underneath and wear The Architect down with his unorthodox, punishing offense. Rollins hung in tough, escaping Sister Abigail and swooping down on Bray outside the ring with a cross body, at which point Samoa Joe stormed in from the crowd and attacked The Kingslayer as payback for injuring his knee earlier in the night.
The Samoan Submission Machine’s interference didn’t sit well with the disqualified Wyatt, who suckered Joe into a tentative alliance before hitting Sister Abigail on the unsuspecting big man. The Eater of Worlds then turned his attention to Rollins, also administering the maneuver to The Kingslayer.
So, this is where we leave five of Team Red’s top Superstars: Primed to clash in the first-ever Extreme Rules Fatal 5-Way match in a battle that could potentially reshape the New Era with an opportunity to challenge Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at stake. With it being every man for himself, there will truly be nowhere to run.
