Pre-Show Match: Rob Van Dam vs. Cesaro

WWE Intercontinental Championship: (c) The Miz vs. Dolph Ziggler
What went down: The Moneymaker is here! But it doesn't matter as we've got a new champion! Fun start to the show. Ziggler hit the Zig Zag, but Miz countered into the Skull-Crushing Finale, however, Ziggler kicked out at two. Ziggler came back and was able to hit the Zig Zag to win the title.


WWE Divas Championship: (c) AJ Lee vs. Paige
What went down: A very good match. Probably one of the better women's matches you'll see in WWE. These two went back-and-forth in a physical matchup. AJ locked in the Black Widow, but Paige countered with the Rampaige, a fisherman's DDT, viciously planting AJ to win the title.


Happy 22nd Birthday Paige!

Flag Match: Rusev vs. Jack Swagger
What went down: The two brawled before the match started, with Swagger getting the better of it and locking in the Patriot Lock. Things got under control and off we went. The story of the match was Rusev's injured ankle. He tried to lock in the Accolade once, but couldn't due to the injured ankle. Swagger got the Patriot Lock again, but Rusev countered and hit a big kick and locked in the Accolade. Swagger held off and held off and didn't tap, but the match was stopped after Swagger passed out.

Lumberjack Match: Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose
What went down: Incredible match. Wild and all-out brawl. The two ended up brawling all over the arena but ended up back in the ring. Highlights included Ambrose doing a wild cross body onto all the lumberjacks and Rollins. Ambrose had the match won but Kane stopped the count. At this point, it was a Pier 6 brawl with all the lumberjacks in the ring. It came down to Ambrose dispatching of Erick Rowan and Luke Harper, but this allowed Rollins to wallop Ambrose with the Money in the Bank briefcase and get the pin. Athletic, wild match.



Grudge Match
: Stephanie McMahon vs. Brie Bella
What went down: A really, really solid match. Good story. Consider McMahon hasn't wrestled in 11 years, this was great. McMahon took the first part of the match before Bella rallied. She had the Yes Lock on McMahon, but Triple H pulled the referee out of the ring. Nikki Bella decided to go around and trap McMahon with Brie, but shockingly, Nikki turned on Brie and McMahon hit the Pedigree to pick up the win. WHY NIKKI WHY?



Grudge Match: Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns
What went down: A little bit of a letdown. Match did pick up toward the end, however. Orton hit an incredible power slam to counter the spear, and followed with the RKO, but Reigns kicked out at the last moment. Orton went for the dangerous punt, but Reigns tripped him up and followed with the spear to pick up a huge win.


WWE World Heavyweight Championship: (c) John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar
What went down: Wow. What a start to this one. They brawl right from the start and Lesnar hits Cena with the F5 right off the bat but Cena kicks out at the last moment! Lesnar
devastating Cena to start the match. Lesnar is rag dolling Cena, just launching him across the ring repeatedly with German suplexes. He goes for about the 10th but Cena elbows out, fires up and hits the Attitude Adjustment, but Lesnar kicks out at two. Lesnar does an Undertaker sit up, laughs, gets up and tells Cena to bring it. Cena charges but Lesnar hits a double leg and goes to town with the ground-and-pound. Lesnar grabs Cena and hits four straight Germans, launching Cena on the fourth. And three more. Holy cow.

Out of nowhere, Cena trips Lesnar and locks in the STF, but Lesnar powers out and starts dropping bombs on Cena. He hoists Cena, hits the F5 and that's it. NEW CHAMPION. Absolute domination from start to finish.
