We come back from another commercial and Kassius Ohno is already in the ring. Seth Rollins comes out to the biggest heat of the night. Boos fill the entire Verizon Center as Rollins laughs and shrugs it all off.
JR: “These guys have been everywhere with each other. They started in the same independent wrestling promotion, they both made it to Florida Championship Wrestling and then took their talent to the big leagues. Yet tonight, or for up to three weeks, they will be intense rivals, trying to defeat and demolish the other, as they try to get that leg-up.
"This series is based on one thing: the World Heavyweight Championship. Will we see Vince McMahon’s protégé prevail? Or will we see the hottest superstar on Monday Night Raw make it to the next match?”
The two of them start in the ring with a test of strength. Rollins wins and then delivers a kick to the gut, followed by a whip into the turnbuckle. He runs in for the clothesline, but Ohno moves out of the way and Rollins collides with the turnbuckle.
Ohno hits a backbreaker on Rollins. When Rollins gets up, Ohno delivers an Irish whip of his own. Instead of going for the clothesline, he walks over and hits Rollins in the upper torso with a dropkick.
Rollins rolls out of the ring to save a possible pin. He gets up and the ref starts counting: 1…2…3…4…5. Rollins starts to taunt the crowd, which gets vicious heat. He enters the ring at six.
Ohno takes advantage of the situation by getting in a few rights, with a left here and there. Ohno goes for a German suplex, but Rollins turns out of it, bounces off the ropes and hits a running bulldog.
Rollins gets up and looks to be going for a diving leg drop. Instead of going for a leg drop, Rollins lies straight out and lands on Ohno. He covers him up: 1…2...kick out!
Ohno slowly gets up, but he sees Rollins going for the Avada Kedavra and ducks out of the way. He rebounds by hitting a running shoulder block. He lifts Rollins and Irish-whips him into the turnbuckle.
Ohno delivers ten punches and then lifts Rollins to the top turnbuckle. He falls off while holding onto Rollins, which is essentially a top-rope facebuster. He covers Rollins: 1…2…kick out!
Rollins slowly gets up. Kassius Ohno goes for an atomic drop, but Rollins catches himself instead of groggily recovering. Ohno now goes for Hero’s Welcome, but Rollins pushes Ohno and lands an enzuigiri on the rebound.
Rollins barely gets up before Kassius Ohno. Rollins delivers a surprise Avada Kedavra, but he doesn’t cover him up.
Rollins decides what he’s going to do next. He waits for Ohno to get up and hits God’s Last Gift. Rollins drags Ohno to the middle of the ring. He covers him up: 1…2…rope break.
Rollins cannot believe it. He drags him closer to the middle of the ring and goes to the top turnbuckle. He goes for a diving elbow drop but Ohno gets his leg up to block it. He covers Rollins: 1…2...kick out!
Rollins gets up slowly but before Ohno. He goes for a German suplex and hits it. Ohno gets up and turns an attempted running shoulder block into an elbow to the face of Rollins. He covers him up: 1…2…kick out!
Ohno decides to go for the Hero’s Welcome. He puts Rollins in that pre-Twist of Fate position, but Rollins has enough energy to push him off and hit a dropkick.
Rollins thinks he has enough in the tank to hit another God’s Last Gift. He takes Kassius Ohno, gets him rolled up in a ball and hits it. He covers him up: 1…2…3!
“Here is your winner, Seth Rollins!” (Time of Match: 12:01)
JR: “Well, congratulations, Seth. Had he not complained to Vince, he’d definitely have a shot at Randy Orton at Backlash. Now, he has to beat Vince’s protégé again.”
Vince McMahon’s theme goes off and we hear some sarcastic clapping.
Vince: “Well, Seth, you defeated my main man. Keep in mind what I said. And next week, I’ll make your challenge just a little more challenging. Next week, it will be Kassius Ohno versus Seth Rollins in a Falls Count Anywhere match.”
This gets a good pop as the show ends.
