Looking to course-correct after being defeated with ease by The Big Dog on Sunday night at the Money in the Bank pay-per-view event, Elias (with Shane McMahon in his corner) squared off against Roman Reigns.
With Shane hoping to see Roman worn down prior to their match at WWE Super ShowDown, Elias looked for every shortcut to get an edge over The Big Dog (including constant interference from Shane-O-Mac). However, Reigns would not be slowed down, going as far to hit Shane with a Drive-by. Elias had a glimmer of hope when he connected with a massive top-rope elbow drop, but Reigns got his shoulder up.
In the pivotal moments, Elias grabbed a guitar, but Reigns knocked the instrument out of his hands. This left The Living Truth wide open for a Spear that secured Roman the victory. There would be no celebration though, as Shane immediately pounced on Roman, striking him with a flurry of punches and then grabbed the guitar, clearly with plans of attacking The Big Dog, but Reigns Superman Punched him before he could ever use it. Roman grabbed the guitar, possibly looking to make a little music of his own against Shane, but he was stopped in his tracks by a surprise Claymore Kick from Drew McIntyre.
The Wild Card Rule had struck again … and clearly Shane-O-Mac was going to use it to the fullest extent possible to silence The Big Dog’s bark.
