Edge Opens The Show, Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn Interrupt

  • Edge says that Roman not defending his title inside Elimination Chamber is a smart move but the selection of his WrestleMania opponent at Elimination Chamber is bigger because it’s the most important decision he’ll ever make in his career and he has 13 potential opponents. Roman Reigns interrupts.
  • Roman says Edge doesn’t have 13 opponents, he has one. Edge responds that he can’t acknowledge Roman as the main event of WrestleMania because Roman needs him to be the main event of WrestleMania and he sees insecurity in Reigns’ eyes.
  • Edge says he also sees a young man in his prime in Reigns but he’s cracking under the pressure, pressure that Edge hasn’t properly applied yet. Edge asks if Roman really wants him to put on the pressure before Sami Zayn interrupts.
  • Sami says he’s been disrespected by two of the biggest stars to ever grace the industry. Zayn says they’re not looking at the threat right in front of them, him! Zayn says he’s the Ultimate Strategist and the Champion of the People which should worry both Edge & Roman.
  • Sami continues on his rant before Jey Uso hits him with a Superkick. Roman and Edge look like they’re about to square off but Reigns whispers something in Edge’s ear before walking away.

Apollo Crews vs Shinsuke Nakamura

  • Before we cut to commercial, Big E makes his entrance to join commentary. We see a recap of Big E vs Shinsuke Nakamura from last week before Nakamura makes his entrance.
  • Kayla Braxton asks if Crews’ Intercontinental Championship aspirations have hurt his friendship with Big E. Crews says Big E’s comments about going back to catering made him realise Big E never respected him and Big E’s intimidated by him.
  • Nakamura and Crews get into a collar-and-elbow tie-up early on which Crews gets the better of. Crews hits a missile dropkick on Nakamura to the outside before throwing Nakamura into Big E at ringside. Big E gets in Crews’ face before we cut to commercial.

  • Crews hits a spinebuster for a 2-count before Nakamura transitions into an armbreaker which he turns into a roll-up to pick up the win.
  • Crews attacks Nakamura after the bell, pulling out the ring steps to attack his opponent but Big E stops him and tells him to walk away. When Big E turned him back, however, Crews levelled him with the steps before clotheslining Nakamura over the barricade.
  • Crews throws both the steps and Big E into the ring and looks like he’s about to hit Big E with the steps but Big E rolls out. Crews drops the steps from the ring to Big E’s prone body on the outside and the segment ends as officials tend to the Intercontinental Champion.
  • We see Big E being stretchered out of the arena after a commercial break whilst Seth Rollins makes his entrance. We later see Big E getting put in an ambulance.

Seth Rollins Tells Fans To Embrace The Vision… Or Else

  • Rollins says what happened to Big E is a tragedy because he knows what it feels like because that’s what happened to him last week before showing us a replay of his return last week.
  • Afterwards, Rollins calls the walkout emotionally damaging and says he’s filed a lawsuit against WWE over it. Rollins says he’s waited months to share The Vision on top of the millions who already share it.

Winners: Natalya & Tamina via Pinfall in 3:05

Ding Dong Hello With Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler

  • Reginald tags in but hesitates when he comes face-to-face with Nia. The two get into a collar-and-elbow but Nia just throws Reginald to the canvas. Reginald gets continually floored by Jax, eventually avoiding Nia’s leg drop. Nia tries to tag in Shayna but Sasha and Bianca pull her off the apron.
  • Reginald tries for a crossbody but Nia catches him. Sasha and Bianca hit a double dropkick to allow Reginald to cover Nia for the 3-count and pick up the win.

Cesaro Interview, Edge Interrupts
