The Shield vs Sin Cara & Los Matadores
With Rollins dazed on the outside, El Torito flew on top of him with a top rope moonsault. Back in the ring Roman Reigns caught both Cara and Fernando with a double spear before either man could take flight. Diego was left in the ring alone, surrounded by all three Shield members, which really put the masked team in trouble. With no escape, Roman Reigns hit the matador with a ‘Superman Punch’ and Seth Rollins finished Diego off with a running mat stomp. The ‘Hounds of Justice’ had left their opponents beaten and battered.

After the match, Adrian Neville called out the NXT Champion Bo Dallas. Bo said that he was impressed with how quickly Neville had climbed the ladder, but this was as far as he could go. Neville said that he didn’t know why Bo hated him so much, but now he had figured out that Dallas was scared of him. Neville gave Bo the opportunity to hit him now because he knew he was scared of losing his title next week. Dallas chose not to and walked to the back as both men stared at each other and NXT went off the air.`
