Facing John Cena in a Contract On A Pole Match and told him he had no problem dropping Cena where he stands but this is all about protecting Golden Boy Seth Rollins. But it's all good he's going to climb up the poloe grabb the contract and beat Cena senseless then go onto brutalize Rollins and there's nothing The Authority or Cena can do about it. John Cena comes out to the ring. Cena tells Ambrose he has to relax because the match is made but that's in 2 weeks and by the sound of the WWE Universe this is a match they want to see. This is a chance for either of them to get their hands on Rollins but yet Ambrose is out beating his chest just so Cena can come out and Ambrose can drop him again. Cena gives Ambrose advice and tells him to shut up and instead of coming out acting all crazy to use the two weeks to prepare for the biggest match of his career. Ambrose says he's been ready to whoop Cena's ass for years and tells him not to talk to him like he's a chump and says Cena doesn't care about him.

Randy Orton vs Dolph Ziggler
The cold match started with a clean lock-up to start the feeling-out process. Meanwhile, Cesaro claimed that Ziggler is afraid to defend the IC Title against him. Cole responded by saying that Ziggler is a fighting champion. Orton slowed the pace before the match spilled to the outside, where Ziggler tossed Orton shoulder-first into the barricade. Ziggler then rolled Orton back into the ring for a two count on a pin attempt. Ziggler tried to follow with a corner attack, but Orton reversed and posted Ziggler. Orton then played to the crowd before trying a second-rope DDT, but Ziggler slipped out and dropkicked Orton off the ring apron to the floor. As Orton recovered on the floor, Seth Rollins casually walked out on-stage holding his MITB briefcase. There did not appear to be a count being administered by the referee despite Orton still standing around on the outside as Rollins slowly walked down the ramp. Raw cut to break.
"Things have gotten mighty interesting," Cole said as Raw returned. No, Orton did not get counted out during the break. Instead, he was working on a side headlock in the ring. Meanwhile, Rollins was standing around ringside and Cesaro was still on commentary. Back in the ring, Orton and Ziggler had a long battle on the top turnbuckle. Orton eventually won the battle with a superplex. Ziggler came back with a leaping elbow drop, but Orton responded with a snap powerslam.

Orton covered Ziggler for the win as Rollins watched unmoved ringside.
The winner of the match: Randy Orton
Post Match: Rollins entered the ring to confront Orton. Or, approach Ziggler to give him a Curb Stomp in front of Orton. The crowd booed Rollins. Not necessarily because he cheap-shotted Ziggler, but because he showed off in front of Orton (another heel).
Jack Swagger vs Seth Rollins
As the match started, Cole hyped Rollins's MITB briefcase. Cole noted Rollins can cash in the briefcase anytime for a WWE World Title shot and even mentioned "what happened at Night of Champions," but did not mention the WWE champion, Brock Lesnar, by name. That was clearly intentional talking about everything in the title picture except the champ. The match moved to the floor and Orton came out for a closer look at Rollins's match. Rollins suicide-splashed Swagger, then noticed Orton standing ringside. Orton sold being taken a-back by Rollins staring him down. What, me?

Justin Roberts then gave a formal introduction for NeNe Leakes, who jogged down to the ring to stand next to Rosa in the face corner as Cole read a long list of Leakes's business ventures. Once the match started, the heels isolated Natalya, prompting Leakes and Rosa to try to rally the crowd. The action completely broke down before it came down to the Bella sisters. Brie got the best of Nikki and pinned her for the win. Leakes and the face Divas then celebrated in the ring.
The winners of the match: Brie Bella, Naomi & Natalya
Backstage: Renee Young brought in John Cena for a promo ahead of his match against Dean Ambrose tonight. Cena hyped this as a huge match, then talked about his issue with Ambrose. But, he's the only man with the guts to stand face-to-face with him in the middle of the ring. Cena said tonight is not about hot dog carts, $1 bets, or Miz TV. He said it's about the man who runs this place against the hottest young star in the business. The promo seemed superfluous.
The Wyatt theme interrupted. It was a new Bray Wyatt vignette. Bray said he used to be afraid, but then she came into his life, whispered in his ear, and told him that he will never be alone. He said this woman told him he will be guided by a spirit. And all he shall leave behind is smoke, desolation, and damnation. "It's coming," Bray said in his rocking chair. Smoke filled the empty barn where he rocked before Bray talked in tongues. On commentary, Cole said Luke Harper and Erick Rowan are on the loose, while Bray is apparently coming.
John Cena vs Dean Ambrose - Contract On A Pole Match
Ambrose and Cena quickly tried to climb the corner turnbuckle to grab the contract, but they knocked each other down. The crowd picked up a dueling chant for and against Cena as The Authority members applauded Cena and Ambrose beating each other up. Cena went for a bulldog, but Ambrose chucked him out of the ring. Ambrose could have just turned around and climbed the pole, but he opted to leave the ring and attack Cena, defying logic, which JBL pointed out. Cole tried to cover for Ambrose by saying he has something to prove to Cena. Which is more important than getting his hands on Rollins? Ambrose eventually returned to the ring, but Cena ran back into the ring to grab him and drop him with an electric chair. Cena followed with an STF, but Ambrose bit his way out of the hold like a dog. JBL went for a four-months-too-late Luis Suarez reference, then Ambrose knocked Cena out of the ring and delivered a suicide dive instead of grabbing the contract. Ambrose eventually picked a fight with The Authority ringside, drawing over Cena, who chucked Ambrose into Kane, Orton, and Rollins. Suddenly, Orton hit the ring as Cena tried to grab the contract. Bodies started flying, then Cena dropped Kane with an Attitude Adjustment. Meanwhile, Ambrose climbed the pole and got his hand on the contract. You Can't See Me wave toward Cena, who sold dejection as Ambrose pulled down the clipboard.
The winner of the match: Dean Ambrose
Post Match: Cena applauded Ambrose, then stalked Orton, who hit the ring apron to glare toward Cena, who tried to act excited to fight Orton at HIAC as part of his consolation prize. Ambrose then glared toward Rollins, who remained standing on the stage. Hunter and Steph eventually joined Rollins on the stage to glare toward Ambrose to close Raw eight minutes past the top of the hour.
