The crowd erupted as The Shield made its way to the ring for its main event match against opponents selected by The Authority.
Alberto Del Rio, Jack Swagger, Fandango, 3MB, Titus O'Neil, Ryback and Curtis Axel, Alexander Rusev and Bad News Barrett all made their way to the ring for an 11-on-3 main event handicap match.
Ambrose unloaded on Heath Slater, and the leader of 3MB further suffered at the hands of Reigns.
Rollins became isolated from his partners as Titus O'Neil and Alexander Rusev took turns hammering away at the former tag champion. Ryback and Swagger continued their assault on Rollins until Reigns delivered a vicious spear to the "big guy" and Ambrose dove over the top rope onto all of their opponents.
A massive beatdown ensued inside the squared circle. The numbers game became too much for The Hounds of Justice to overcome.
The Evolution theme song played and Triple H, Batista and Randy Orton made their way to the ring to pick apart whatever was left of The Shield. Orton delivered an RKO to Reigns, and Batista followed with a Batista Bomb. Rollins suffered the same fate, and Ambrose fell victim to a Batista Bomb into the neckbreaker by Orton.
The COO finished the beatdown with a Pedigree on Reigns.

The actual main event match was nothing and only served to set up the beatdown of The Shield by the reunited Evolution.

After a WrestleMania and Monday Night Raw that did not go as planned for The Authority, it regains some heat by leaving The Shield lying and creating questions as to what would have happened had Bryan been there.
Speaking of the WWE World Heavyweight champion, how will The Shield react to him disappearing for his honeymoon and leaving it on its own when it was so quick to come to his aid last week? The same can be said about The Usos, who benefited from The Shield's rescue on last week's SmackDown.
Has The Shield's history of attacking its fellow Superstars caught up to it? How will it affect its war with The Authority and Evolution? What affect will a rejuvenated Kane have on the ordeal?
Lots of questions mean lots of answers to be had in the coming weeks and a much more exciting and entertaining show as a result.
