Seth Rollins had come to the ring to celebrate his win in the Survivor Series battle for brand supremacy before taking on Finn Balor. Rollins was the sole survivor for Team Raw seeing off Jeff Hardy to claim the win, something Rollins was keen to remind the world on Raw.
After running down his accomplishments from the night before, some harsh words for Finn Balor brought The Prince to the ring. But Rollins quickly attacked the Irishman, and although Balor managed to get some offence in, he was soon overpowered. Rollins nailed Balor with the ring steps before hitting a Curb Stomp, before returning to the ring to deliver a second to leave Balor laying.
