Tonight’s show starts with a look back at the announcement to strip Daniel Bryan of the WWE Championship and the announcement that the World Title will be awarded to the winner of the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
We are in Green Bay, Wisconsin and your announcers are John ‘Anderson’ Layfield and Michael ‘Kennedy’ Cole.
The Shield makes their way to the ring.
Dean Ambrose says that he doesn’t have to tell you what you already know. What the Authority is doing is obvious. Does HHH think he has the cards? They are not going to wait for HHH to deal, they are knocking over the table and going for your throat. As for the puppet suit Seth Rollins, his former business partner, he is shutting down the Seth Rollins business for good.
He knows the look on Roman’s face and he might have something to say to another spineless corporate stooge.
Roman takes the mic and he tells Randy that he hopes he is having fun on his night off because when he gets his hands on Randy, he will hope it is a permanent vacation. He says that Randy is not the face of the company, he is the ass. He also calls Randy the spoiled kid who gets everything he wants from his daddy. You didn’t even qualify for the ladder match, you were given the opportunity. Everyone wants to be the WWE Champion, but maybe Dean or him will beat Randy to it.
Hunter appears on the TitanTron and he says that sounds good, but there are only a certain number of spots. There is only one qualifying slot available and two of you. There is one way to decide it. Since you are brothers, Hunter flips a coin and he says that Dean has the opportunity to qualify tonight. The congratulations is rather loose because Dean will have to face Bray Wyatt.
Hunter tells Roman that since they like to do things together, Roman is banned from ringside, along with the Wyatt Family. Hunter tells Dean that he is banned from Roman’s match and Hunter has some bad news for Roman.

We see how Dean Ambrose got his chance to qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match.
Bray Wyatt says that when he was a child, he was a dreamer. He dreamt of glory. He dreamt of a white picket fence. He dreamt of happiness. Then he woke up and he was stuck in this prison, just like everyone else. Until he met her. He was told he didn’t have to be a dreamer because she said that he will achieve everything he wants and more.
They will chant your name and fear your hand. They will bow to you. What a predicament we find ourselves in now. Above that ladder lies his absolution. Above that ladder lies his happy ending. Above that ladder lies his power.
Unfortunately for Dean Ambrose, he stands in his way. Those who stand in his way will burn. Those who walk beside him will be reborn.
