Roman Reigns defeated Randy Orton
Roman Reigns brought the sold-out STAPLES Center to its feet at SummerSlam, defanging The Viper Randy Orton with a thunderous Spear. Orton came to WWE Network’s pay-per-view looking for retribution, feeling that Reigns had cost him an opportunity at the WWE World Heavyweight Title several weeks ago. For his part, Reigns was stepping through the ropes looking for one thing: respect.
Regardless of their respective motives, the red-hot rivalry between two of WWE’s most ruthless grapplers was destined to leave scorched earth from the opening bell. While Reigns opened the match with an aggressive offensive, the 12-time World Champion would fire back in a hurry, lighting the fuse on an absolutely explosive assault that was highlighted by an earth-shattering Superplex.

John Cena def. Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Cesaro, U.S. Champion Sheamus, Kane and Alberto Del Rio to become the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion
The Champ is … well, you know.
With the wreckage of Cesaro, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Alberto Del Rio, Sheamus, Kane and a bloody Randy Orton surrounding him, John Cena scaled the rungs and notched the latest and potentially greatest of his historic victories to claim the vacant WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the first-ever Ladder Match to put the unified title up for grabs.
Sheamus became the first man to lay hands on the two titles, although Kane quickly cleared the way for Orton to make a run up the rungs. Roman Reigns quickly answered, knocking Orton off his perch from halfway up the ladder. Adding insult to injury, The Apex Predator caught a blow to the head on the way down, rendering him bloody on the outside. The King of Swing proved himself worthy of Paul Heyman’s representation by horizontally threading a ladder from the turnbuckle through the rungs of a vertical one (Swiss engineering at its finest) to create a steel-frame, house-like structure upon which he once again grappled over the titles with the resilient Sheamus. To which, of course, Roman Reigns saw only one solution: Tip the whole thing over.
With the house of ladders literally teetering on the brink of collapse, Cesaro and Sheamus traded blows within reach of the titles until Cena literally righted the ship … at which point Kane, once again, took out all opposition. Reigns unleashed his biggest effort at this point, hurling his body beneath the rungs to Spear Kane in two – so much for superstition – and summarily cleaning house, Spearing and Superman punching everything in sight … except for John Cena, who found himself face-to-face with Reigns in an empty ring and a roaring WWE Universe foaming for the fight.
The first face-off between the present and future standard-bearers of WWE ended in a decisive advantage for Reigns, who broke free of the Attitude Adjustment and ricocheted off the ropes seamlessly into a Spear. Roman’s seemingly preordained destiny to climb the ladder was delayed once again, however, by Orton, who wrenched the big dog off the rungs into a backbreaker. The Apex Predator ascended the ladder once again and Reigns made his final play to cut his budding rival off at the pass. For a moment, it seemed like the former WWE Tag Team Champion had made good on his promise to become the Champion of Champions when he knocked The Viper off the ladder, but Kane yet again proved himself worthy of The Authority’s trust when he removed Reigns from the equation with a Chokeslam.

Roman Reigns def. Kane by Disqualification
Roman Reigns and Kane provided a preview of this Sunday’s WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match in an explosive SmackDown main event. The black-vested Superstar looked to be on the verge of victory after a Superman Punch to the jaw of Demon Kane, only to have Randy Orton arrive and interrupt the bout.
Another Superman Punch helped Reigns escape the stranglehold of The Viper, but the determined Superstar couldn’t avoid a hellacious Chokeslam from The Devil’s Favorite Demon. Despite a moment of uncertainty as the masked Demon brought a ladder into the ring, the 7-footer and first WWE World Heavyweight Champion appeared to be on the same page. That page, however, was quickly torn by Reigns as he speared both sinister Superstars in an explosive Friday night finish.

Seth Rollins def. Batista via Disqualifiction
Nothing like a good loophole to even the odds: With only official personnel allowed at ringside for Seth Rollins’ rematch with Batista, Triple H exploited a technicality by installing himself and Randy Orton as special guest ring announcer and timekeeper for the contest … and Rollins countered by naming Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns as special guest commentators.
A brutish trip into the steel steps grounded Rollins for a long stretch and Batista capitalized, unleashing an elbow that sent the former WWE Tag Team Champion into a full flip. “The Aerialist” quickly took flight after being muscled into his enemies’ corner, forcing Evolution to interfere and kick off an all-out melee between the two factions that ended in a DQ win for Rollins when The Game clobbered him with a forearm. With the match over, The Shield was free to pounce on their foes, though Evolution was able to save face by rescuing Batista from a Triple Powerbomb.

The Shield addressed Evolution
Believe this: It’ll take more than a taste of their own medicine to keep The Shield down, let alone shut their mouths. Despite being laid low by Evolution in Raw’s closing moments last week, The Hounds of Justice were all but frothing at the mouth, daring Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista to show themselves for another fight. They seemed to get just that, as an image of an arriving limousine appeared on the TitanTron; instead of giving the veteran trio time to respond, The Shield took the fight straight to their tormentors, sprinting into the back and pouncing on the unsuspecting Evolution, turning them from hunters to hunted in minutes flat.
Evolution addressed The Shield
Evolution is not happy. Being subjected to The Shield’s brazen attacks has left a sour taste in the taste of Randy Orton and Batista, but while The Viper and The Animal were chomping at the bit to “put The Hounds of Justice to sleep,” Triple H took a much more measured approach in his response. Specifically, he gave The Shield what they wanted: A rematch of their six-man blitzkrieg at Extreme Rules.
However, The Game’s pontification was cut short by a second ambush by The Shield, although this time the Hounds might have bitten off more than they can chew. Batista – a man of few words throughout the entire evening thus far – grabbed hold of a microphone and challenged Roman Reigns to a one-on-one match. Needless to say, “the big dog” couldn’t have been happier.
Roman Reigns def. Batista via Disqualification
Batista wanted the big dog, and Batista got the big dog. Roman Reigns wanted a fight, and, well, he got one. Just not the kind of fight he was expecting. The former WWE Tag Team Champion had been more than holding his own against The Animal, despite attempted interference by the rest of Evolution, when Triple H pre-empted the Superman Punch by hauling Reigns out of the ring, ending the match via DQ. Chaos ensued and Stephanie McMahon sent a bevy of Superstars after the Hounds, though the men in black battled their way out of the scrum in high style. Dean Ambrose planted Fandango with Dirty Deeds atop a chair; Seth Rollins sent Curtis Axel onto the same steel with Peace of Mind, and a final Triple Powerbomb to Ryback – “Big Guy” out – put the night to an end. The hunt continues.

The Wyatt Family def. The Shield
Four go-rounds in, and each ride on the Shield vs. Wyatts carousel remains as much of a thriller as the WWE Universe is ever likely to see. Despite their numerous clashes, WWE’s two rowdiest factions still can’t wait to get their hands on each other; the six men began brawling before the bell even rang on their latest Authority-mandated clash. Once things settled into a groove, it was high-flying Seth Rollins and then now-former U.S. Champion Dean Ambrose who found himself isolated by The Wyatts.
The Hounds wisely unleashed Rollins at a decisive moment to equalize the match, and that he did (standing senton!!) until Harper cut him short and tagged in Bray Wyatt to follow up. The aerialist managed to hang tough and tag in Roman Reigns, but the big Hound’s rampage was thwarted by Evolution, whose interference allowed Bray to execute Sister Abigail for the victory. It was the post-match display that really left The Shield in tatters, as the Hounds suffered RKOs, Pedigrees and, ultimately, a Triple Powerbomb to Roman Reigns – adaptation at its finest.

The Shield def. Evolution
Soldiers, it turns out, do win wars.
At Extreme Rules, the WWE Universe watched in astonishment as The Shield adapted and Evolution — at least on this night — perished during a raucous six-man brawl. For more than 20 minutes of uncontainable action, two of the most destructive factions in WWE history warred in a grueling fight that sprawled throughout New Jersey’s IZOD Center and culminated with Michael Cole’s call, “The times, they are a-changing!”
Indeed, the old guard fell to the new guard, as Roman Reigns pinned Batista after a Spear, demonstrating exactly what “true power” looks like. The road to victory, however, was anything but easy for The Hounds of Justice. Despite speculation that their admittedly “massive” egos would be their downfall, Evolution’s veritable all-star lineup of WWE COO Triple H, Randy Orton & Batista — with a combined 31 World Title reigns among them — worked cohesively, and dominated much of the bout.
Early on, Evolution effectively isolated first Seth Rollins and then Dean Ambrose. The Game turned The Shield’s Architect inside-out with a vicious clothesline, and with Rollins hanging off the ring apron, Batista found opportunity to boot the blond-and-black-haired highflier in the skull. Ambrose managed to lock in a Figure-Four Leglock — alluding to “Nature Boy” Ric Flair, a founding member of Evolution who publicly endorsed The Shield days ago — but the advantage was short-lived. Reigns’ Spear attempt outside the ring was sidestepped by The Game, causing The Powerhouse to slam into the steel steps. A dive to the floor by Rollins was similarly avoided by The Cerebral Assassin, leaving Rollins in a heap on the floor.
Evolution worked over their opposition methodically. “Bootista” chants from rained down as The Animal worked over his prey, and Ambrose looked downright punch-drunk after an exchange with Triple H, which ended with a fierce spinebuster by the 13-time World Champion. The Hounds of Justice would not be denied, though. The trio’s Lunatic Fringe turned the tides with a DDT on Triple H, and once Reigns found his way into the contest, he turned into a one-man wrecking crew, taking out Orton, Batista and Triple H in succession.
The Shield looked to have the match locked up when they struck Batista with a Triple Powerbomb, yet savvy veterans Orton and Triple H prevented the pinfall. Reigns subsequently ate a Pedigree and an RKO, but thanks to his teammates’ efforts, he was never pinned. At that point, all hell broke loose. As the match’s legal competitors, Reigns and Batista, struggled to get to their feet inside the ring, the other four combatants embarked on a wild free-for-all that spilled out of the ring and, eventually, into the WWE Universe. All the while, a loud “This is awesome!” chant took over the arena.
Ambrose ran the length of both announce tables and leapt onto Triple H and Orton. Within minutes, Orton rebounded and sent the unstable Shield member flying down a flight of stairs. As The King of Kings and WWE’s Apex Predator worked over Ambrose hundreds of feet away from ringside, the collective jaw of WWE fans dropped as Rollins came flying down with an incredible cross body block off the balcony! Back inside the ring, Batista dropped Reigns with a spinebuster and prepared for the Batista Bomb. But The Shield’s Punisher — perhaps mindful of this year’s Royal Rumble Match, which The Animal won after eliminating Reigns — shoved off Batista, recoiled and launched into a Superman Punch. A bone-rattling Spear later, and The Shield cemented their status as WWE”s new torchbearers.

Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton went to a No Contest
Evolution meets revolution this Sunday, but it seems The Shield have already converted one surprise Superstar into an acolyte: no less a competitor than Ric Flair himself handed The Hounds of Justice his personal endorsement. Soon after, Roman Reigns came out swinging against Randy Orton and was met in kind by the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion, who jabbed his thumb, Flair-style, into Reigns’ eye and hurled him into the steps.
An inevitable brawl between the remaining members of Evolution and The Shield broke out just as Reigns found his footing, and the former WWE Tag Team Champion decided to join his brothers rather than pin The Viper. The referee threw out the match as chaos escalated, yet Evolution showed no such hesitance when it came to the dismantling of The Shield. The Hounds were able to beat back their attackers at the last moment, though it was telling that the only time Evolution truly looked shaken was when Triple H barely dodged a Triple Powerbomb: The blast from the past narrowly escaping what could very well be their future.

Cesaro def. Jack Swagger
However, the action didn’t stop there. For, as the dust was still clearing, The Shield suddenly attacked the war-torn Swagger and dropped him with a Triple Powerbomb – hence neutralizing one of the 11 Superstars scheduled to take them on later in the night. In reference to Triple H’s statement to “adapt or perish,” The Hounds pointed out that Swagger had failed to adapt and that they were just getting started.
The Shield laid waste to 3MB
Following up their earlier assault on Jack Swagger, The Hounds of Justice launched a second attack on scheduled 11-3 Handicap Match opponents, this time leaving 3MB in tatters. Moments later, a phone call from Triple H gave Vickie Guerrero “the night off.” In her place, Raw General Manager Brad Maddox was called in to handle The Shield situation.
The Shield took out Brad Maddox
Though Brad Maddox was tasked with taming The Hounds of Justice, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns launched a preemptive strike on the Raw General Manager.
Santino & Emma vs. Fandango & Layla ended in a No Contest
Before Fandango & Layla could go to battle against Santino & Emma, The Shield once again emerged, taking out another of their opponents in the 11-on-3 Handicap Match by Triple Powerbombing Fandango off the stage and through a table.
The Shield triumphed in a 5-on-3 Handicap Match
Moments before SmackDown’s main event, Curtis Axel was found decimated in the back – presumably another strategic attack by The Shield. The Hounds of Justice then went head-to-head with their remaining foes: Alberto Del Rio, Bad News Barrett, Damien Sandow, Ryback & Titus O’Neil. In the height of the action, Barrett and Del Rio elected to take a walk. But, as Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins continued to pulverize their opponents, Roman Reigns caught up with Mexico’s Greatest Export. Then, after Reigns defeated Damien Sandow with the Spear, the still hungry Ambrose & Rollins passed Titus and Ryback into the ring to suffer a pair of post-match Reigns Spears, before the black-clad trio finished off The Human Wrecking Ball with the Triple Powerbomb.

The Shield confronted Evolution
Depending on what you believe, evolution continues forever. But so does justice. And with Evolution reunited to battle The Shield at Extreme Rules, the time has come for the WWE Universe to choose their sides. Triple H, Randy Orton & Batista – clad in their old-school suits under the Evolution banner – certainly made a strong case for themselves as the biggest dogs in the yard.
The Hounds of Justice didn’t let the veterans gloat for too long before they hit Evolution with some truth of their own: That The Game had hired them for their ruthlessness in the first place, and now that they’d made The Shield his enemy, he and the rest of Evolution would have to – as one of their members likes to say – deal with it. Given that The Game still had eleven Superstars in his pocket, that promise would have to wait. With their battle at Extreme Rules two weeks away, however, the wait is thinning rapidly.
