Roman Reigns and Sheamus start the contest. They battle for positioning until Sheamus drops Reigns with an axe handle. Sheamus clotheslines Reigns and goes for a quick pin. Reigns kicks out and Sheamus tags Orton. Reigns creates some space and tags in Seth Rollins, who walks into a dropkick from Orton. Randy suplexes Rollins and tags in Sheamus.

Rollins gains control of Sheamus and tags in Dean Ambrose as Sheamus is ambushed in The Shield’s corner. Big Show is tagged in, and dominates Ambrose until he takes Show down with a dropkick to the knee. The Shield work as a team to keep Big Show grounded.

The Shield continues to work over Big Show with fresh tags until Show drops Reigns with an improvised slam from a sleeper hold. Show gets to his corner and tags in Sheamus, who throws Seth Rollins onto the apron and hits him with the Irish Hand Grenades. Rollins tags in Ambrose, and Sheamus does the same to him. Sheamus climbs to the top rope, but Roman Reigns pushes him off and he falls outside of the ring.

The Shield set Sheamus up for the triple powerbomb, but Big Show spears all three. Sheamus crawls his way to his corner to tag Big Show, but Orton tags himself in and does his signature moveset on Dean Ambrose. Orton prepares to RKO Ambrose, but Seth Rollins leaps from the top rope and is RKO’d instead. Orton turns around and is speared by Roman Reigns. Ambrose pins Orton and wins the match for The Shield.
