And here’s the Live Kickoff Show below!
Fandango vs. Dolph Ziggler
Best Moment/Highlight: Fandango landed a pretty sweet Falcon Arrow on Ziggler in the middle of the match. Summer Rae distracted Ziggler as he prepared to drop Fandango with a superplex. Fandango pushed Ziggler off the top rope and dropped that big top rope leg drop on him to get the win.
CM Punk vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns)
Winner: CM Punk!
Best Moment/Highlight: Roman Reigns went for a spear to Punk on the outside. Punk dodged it and Reigns went flying over the announcer’s table. His eye took the brunt of that mistake.

Ambrose wiggled out of the GTS, landed behind Punk and accidentally got speared by Reigns. Punk took advantage and pinned a fallen Ambrose.
AJ Lee (c) vs. Natalya (WWE Divas Championship)
Winner: AJ Lee!
Best Moment/Highlight: After sharing a Sharpshooter and an Octopus Stretch with each other, both women grew entangled into another wild exchange.

Big E Langston (c) vs. Damien Sandow (WWE Intercontinental Championship)

Winners: The Wyatt Family!
Best Moment/Highlight: Bray Wyatt did the creepiest thing ever – he performed the demonic backwards walk that was previously seen in those Exorcist films.

Cena took a fall back down to the mat. Cena got handcuffed to the ring but he managed to escape after ripping off the ring ropes that he was tied to. Cena and Orton battled at the top of the ladder and Cena ended up knocking Orton off. Cena was mere moments away from grabbing the belts, but Orton yanked him off.
