OFFICIAL RESULT: The Shield @ 19:00 via pin MATCH THOUGHTS: What can I say about that. It started slow but ended amazingly. I could barely recap it towards the end because they went at such a fast pace. Amazing match that told a completely different story than the match they had at Elimination Chamber, yet equally incredible. Everyone should check it out if they are not watching Main Event right now. I don't really do technical ratings but in entertainment call it 4 ½ out of 5.
-Interview time with The Shield. Seth Rollins says it felt good and that no one can stop a united Shield. Dean Ambrose is choking while trying to talk. He tells the others to finish the promo. Rollins talks with Ambrose who catches his breath. He can barely talk because his rib hurts. Dean Ambrose says they face any test that gets in their way. Seth Rollins says they are not faceless, nameless, or expendable. They are not anonymous. Roman Reigns hits on Renee. He says Cajun Dome do I have a name? He asks what his name is as the crowd starts a Roman Reigns chant. Seth Rollins is laughing. Hopefully, Ambrose's ribs are not too bad. He seems fine now. Triple H his name is Roman Reigns and he speared you Monday night. The Shield is standing right here. Seth Rollins and The Shield are prepared for War since the moment they stepped foot in the WWE. There is no greater injustice than the authority. Triple H fired the first shot, but The Shield will own this war. You can believe that and believe in the Shield.

Jack Swagger with Zeb Colter vs. Dolph Ziggler
I notice Swagger uses the same theme as Cesaro still. The we the people chant is still over for Swagger.
-the video thanking the WWE Universe is aired
Swagger's theme is still playing as Colter has the mic. Colter says Cesaro showed his true colors after everything they did. Cesaro backstabbed them proving everything they ever said about immigrants. Paul Heyman is a thief, and Cesaro is a liar. They deserve each other. Colter asks for every real american to rise and say we the people. The crowd obliges him. Dolph Ziggler comes out to a good ovation. Dolph starts off with a dropkick, and a quick miss leads to a Swagger bomb for 2. Jack attacks with corner knees. Swaggers hits a short arm clothesline. 1..2..kickout.

Dolph sells his leg wonderfully as a Let's Go Ziggler chant start. Swagger gets a running knee for 2. The crowd is behind Dolph Ziggler tonight. Jack lifts him for a gutwrench powerbomb, but that is reversed and a DDT for Ziggler. 1..2..kickout. Dolph goes for something else but is caught into an Electric Chair leading to a victory roll. 1..2..kickout. Swagger ends up catching him with the Patriot Lock causing Dolph to tap.
OFFICIAL RESULT: Jack Swagger @ 5:00 via submission MATCH THOUGHTS: Good little match in 5 minutes. These two made the best of little time. The crowd was into it and so was I.
-Rusev's destruction and raw debut is highlighted
-Daniel Bryan journey promo next!
-Bolieve promo for Bo Dallas
Sin Cara vs. Alexander Rusev
Sin Cara makes his way to the ring. The ravishing Russian Lana comes out. Always a welcome addition to any event, and she wants us to rise for the Super Athlete. Alexander Rusev comes out. I have to admit I really like his theme for some reason. Rusev misses a corner splash. Sin Cara using kicks and high-flying moves to keep Rusev on guard, but that does not last. Rusev quickly turns the tide with a side kick. Rusev lifts him in a sort of Ura-Nage technique. The accolade on Sin Cara making him tap immediately.
OFFICIAL RESULT: Alexander Rusev @ 1:00 via pin MATCH THOUGHTS: A squash match that solidifies Rusev's dominance. At least, he is really athletic for a big man.
-Smackdown this week will have Daniel Bryan and The Usos vs Kane, Randy Orton, and Batista.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Great show mostly because The Shield and The Wyatts match. Swagger and Ziggler was pretty good too. Rusev remained completely dominant. Nothing more to ask for, but I suggest everyone catch it for The Shield and Wyatt match alone.
