WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns Confronted Seth Rollins
Just we all expected, Rollins received a hero's homecoming when he made his entrance, and the reaction gave me chills. Holy shit. He started off his promo acting like a babyface, but he managed to turn the crowd (or at least a portion of the crowd) against him by talking about how he burned every single piece of fan mail that was sent to him while he was injured. Brilliant. I still think a double turn with him and Reigns is the right direction to take, but it makes sense to stick with him as a heel for now because that's what he was the last time we saw him. I'm glad they wasted no time in announcing the main event for the Money in the Bank pay-per-view and the Money in the Bank qualifying matches that would take place over the course of the night.
Sami Zayn def. Sheamus in a Money in the Bank Qualifying Match
Sheamus hasn't meant anything in ages, but as a former multi-time world champion and Mr. Money in the Bank, there was a chance he could have won here, especially given Zayn rarely wins when it matters most (which works for his character). They contested a good match and I liked the dynamic they had. I was happy Zayn won clean and he should be an excellent addition to the Money in the Bank Ladder match. As for Sheamus, he goes from winning it one year to not even being able to qualify for it the next. I can't say I'm surprised, but the commentators acknowledged that as well, so they're incorporating that frustration into his character. Him losing to a "New Era" wrestler such as Zayn sets up his apparent feud with Apollo Crews perfectly.
