Seth Rollins def. Chris Jericho
At Roadblock: End of the Line, Seth Rollins picked up a victory of pure retribution over Chris Jericho. Heading into their showdown, Jericho had cost Rollins the Universal Championship on three separate occasions. Yet, after the six-time World Champion left his best friend, Universal Champion Kevin Owens, at Roman Reigns’ mercy on Monday’s Raw, it appeared he would be forced to face The Architect without KO’s help.
Prior to the match, Rollins made it clear that he wanted Triple H and he would be going through Jericho to get to him. However, for the time being, he would need to focus every bit of his energy on the very dangerous opponent in front of him. The subsequent contest was a completely brutal back-and-forth, with both Superstars utilizing everything they had both inside and outside the ring. Jericho was in charge for much of the match. Yet, no matter what was thrown at him, Rollins refused to give in. Before long, the two Superstars were going shot for shot and finishing maneuver for finishing maneuver, including Rollins fighting his way out of not one, but two Walls of Jericho.
Then, in the height of the action, Kevin Owens suddenly emerged and climbed on the apron to cause a distraction. While it looked as if KO might have been making amends with his best friend, his efforts were met with angry screams from Jericho. Moreover, the commotion Owens paved the way for Rollins to hit the Pedigree for the three-count and put an end to the hard-fought contest.
With the huge win, Rollins not only achieved some payback, but moved one step closer to an inevitable showdown with The Game. Yet, as the WWE Universe would soon learn, the night was far from over for both Rollins and Jericho
Seth Rollins Helps Roman Reigns Take out Jericho & Owens
It seemed that Jericho and Owens’ friendship had reached the end of the line, but it became clear that Jericho, in a clever ruse, had delivered the DQ-inducing blow on purpose so his buddy could retain the title (in a match vs. Roman Reigns).
The two cohorts tried to get out of Dodge, but they were cut off at the pass by Seth Rollins, who proceeded to join up with Reigns to put both Jericho and Owens through two separate tables in classic Shield style. The savagery was undoubtedly satisfying for The Big Dog, but his journey to dethrone Owens is far from over.

Kevin Owens def. Seth Rollins (with the help of Chris Jericho)
The Kevin Owens Show has survived its one-off episode in Hell to roll on for at least another night, as the WWE Universal Championship both arrived and left Boston in the clutches of The Prizefighter, while Seth Rollins was left empty-handed yet again. Though, to be entirely fair, the third-act twist wasn’t entirely due to the merits of The KO Show’s namesake, as a most unexpected guest star crashed the Cell.
In case you couldn’t guess, that was Chris Jericho, who made his presence felt after Rollins gritted and grounded his way into position to win the match. That in and of itself was a miracle after KO snuffed out Rollins’ early showing by targeting The Architect’s back, ripping off Rollins’ Kinesio tape before savaging him all across the cage. Rollins was able to keep himself in the fight, but when Owens accidentally blasted one of the officials in the face with a fire extinguisher, Jericho took advantage of the briefly open Cell door to lock himself inside and pocket the key.
Rollins quickly dispatched Jericho by sending him crashing into the Cell wall, but the mere presence of The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla left him at an insurmountable disadvantage. Even though he was able to power through his brutalised back to powerbomb Owens through a pair of tables, he couldn’t stop Jericho from hauling the ref away before the pinfall could be counted. And, although he was able to briefly chase Jericho down, he wasn’t able to stop Jeri-KO from ultimately uniting and bringing two steel chairs into the match. And once Owens power bombed him through those two chairs with Jericho watching on, Rollins wasn’t able to do much of anything

Kevin Owens def. Seth Rollins (for the WWE Universal Title)
The Kevin Owens Show rolls on. The longest-reigning WWE Universal Champion of all time will extend his record now that Owens has defeated Seth Rollins in his first title defense at WWE Clash of Champions. That being said, Owens should probably send a fruit basket or something to his “best friend,” Chris Jericho, who teed The Prizefighter up for the maneuver that ultimately put Rollins away.
All of which is to say The Architect should be doubly bitter over this loss, since he had promised to prove he was still “The Man” in WWE to Raw General Manager Mick Foley and Commissioner Stephanie McMahon (who he still held responsible for Triple H’s betrayal), and Rollins made good on that promise for the entirety of the match. Owens put up a smothering front, but Rollins hung tough, battling back from an attack that focused on his repaired knee and hitting Owens with a Frog Splash after K.O. accidentally put himself through the Spanish announce table.
That was when Jericho, in a “Kevin Owens Show” shirt and his signature scarf, sprinted to ringside and swung the match, setting off a scuffle that ended in the referee getting, well, KO’ed. Not only did Rollins hit a Pedigree that went unrecorded by an official (the audience managed a 15-count, though), he was forced to fight off both Jericho and Owens before Stephanie sent out a replacement ref. By then, however, Owens was ready to go, and quickly put Rollins down with a Pop-up Powerbomb that Stephanie observed with an inscrutable expression from the entrance ramp. Redesigned. Rebuilt.

Finn Balor def. Seth Rollins – For the WWE Universal Championship
Finn Bálor first stepped in a WWE ring as a Raw Superstar four weeks ago. Tonight at SummerSlam, he left the squared circle as the first WWE Universal Champion, defeating Seth Rollins with the Coup de Grace to capture the new title and building to a legacy of success that’s spanned Europe, Japan and NXT. Moments before history was made, Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and General Manager Mick Foley unveiled the new WWE Universal Championship. And then the mind-games began as The Demon King stalked to the ring through a thick cloud of red smoke with a neon green tongue painted on his chest and a giant eye on his back.
Rollins could not get away from his opponent early on. Bálor blindsided him when the opening bell rang. When Rollins rolled to the outside to catch his breath, Bálor caught him with a senton over the top rope. He then began to target Rollins’ surgically repaired left knee. Bálor had Rollins reeling, until “The Man” powerbombed his opponent into the ringside barricade, flipping momentum entirely.

Seth Gets Drafted/Ambrose def. Seth Rollins (Ambrose Retains)
The main event of WWE Battleground was two years in the making, one the WWE Universe had been waiting to see ever since Seth Rollins stabbed his Shield brethren Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose in the back. The stakes could not have been higher, with the WWE Championship hanging in the balance less than 24 hours before a New Era of WWE began, with defending champion Ambrose heading to SmackDown Live and Reigns and Rollins anchoring Monday Night Raw.
Despite the odds being stacked against SmackDown Live and their top draft pick, the determined Ambrose persevered against his former Shield brothers, eventually hitting Reigns with Dirty Deeds to retain his title and take it to Tuesday nights.
Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon and her Raw General Manager, Mick Foley, SmackDown Live Commissioner Shane McMahon and his General Manager, Daniel Bryan, all made their way to ringside to get the best view of the match that would shape the future of WWE and determine which brand got control of the WWE Championship.

Seth Rollins def. Roman Reigns (But Ambrose Cashes in on Rollins to win the Title) – Full Recap
The Architect fought like a man looking to reclaim both his title and his pride, facing Reigns for the first time without The Authority or J&J Security ready to intervene on his behalf. Some early ring rust aside, Rollins quickly showed he still possessed the skills that took him to the top. But going toe-to-toe with “The Guy” proved to be a poor strategy when Reigns used his strength advantage to overpower his foe with clotheslines, headbutts and a tilt-a-whirl slam to the reeling Rollins.
The Architect remained defiant, if not competitive, slapping the increasingly confident Reigns across the face while the champion tried to worm his way into Rollins’ head. The Big Dog responded with yet more power maneuvers, forcing Rollins to the outside and battering him about announce tables of varying languages before flattening him with the sit-out Razor’s Edge Powerbomb.
At this point, with Reigns in the driver’s seat, Rollins dipped into a fourth “R”: Recover. He reversed a Superman Punch into a turnbuckle STO and was off to the races, with a blur of flailing kicks and flapping hair as he hit Reigns with an enzuigiri, dropkick to the outside, suicide dive, a tope’ over the top rope and a Sling Blade.
Even a Superman Punch that found its mark couldn’t stop Rollins, who now seemed fully in control of the match and confident in his abilities. So much so that he even successfully executed the sunset flip that put him out of action in the first place, even putting some extra English on it by transitioning right into a buckle-bomb. On his heels, Reigns resorted to physically shoving Rollins away, but The Architect pressed on, forcing Reigns off the top rope with the supersuplex, Falcon’s Arrow combination.
It was going to take an extraordinary strike from one of them to turn the tide, and Reigns was the one to throw it. It’s too bad he missed: After a Superman Punch gave him some breathing room, The Big Dog pursued Rollins outside the ring and sprinted full-tilt into a Spear, only Rollins dodged the move and Reigns plowed face-first through the ringside barricade.
The impact knocked Reigns loopy … but not so much he didn’t have the wherewithal to shove Rollins into the official to stop his momentum. That ended up backfiring, ironically, when said referee was too slow to crawl and complete a three-count after Reigns hit a Spear a few moments later, leaving Rollins alive and with, perhaps, one last gasp left in him. It’s too bad for Reigns that Rollins didn’t miss. The Big Dog attempted another Spear, only Rollins leaped up and miraculously transitioned into a midair Pedigree. A second Pedigree moments later spelled the end of Roman’s reign, and Seth Rollins was once again the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. For about two minutes.
Dean Ambrose’s music roared to life in the middle of The Architect’s celebration, but The Lunatic Fringe, rather than face Rollins head-on, took a page out of his old brother’s book and struck him from behind with the Money in the Bank briefcase he had only won hours earlier. Ambrose cashed in the contract on the spot. Despite Rollins’ frantic protests, the bell rang, and tolled, in quick succession, as Ambrose obliterated the new champion with Dirty Deeds and claimed the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Seth Rollins causes Corporate Kane to Lose his Job
The Authority should be receiving a flood of résumé as Corporate Kane has been relieved of his duties as WWE Director of Operations, following Demon Kane’s defeat at the hands of World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins at WWE Hell in Cell.
Once charged with protecting the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Kane was Rollins’ ally under The Authority’s umbrella until the Director of Operations was betrayed by The Architect and sidelined with an injury. When Kane returned at Night of Champions and attacked Rollins, he did so as Demon Kane. In the weeks leading up to Hell in a Cell, Rollins was left to deal with the seemingly split personalities of Corporate Kane and Demon Kane. Needless to say, there was no love lost between The Architect and either Kane.
When the opening bell sounded, Rollins got into his opponent’s masked face, convincing himself Corporate Kane and Demon Kane were one and the same. The Big Red Monster didn’t take kindly to Rollins’ jawing, or his subsequent a push, and began to quickly and efficiently tear apart the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Rollins managed to remain resilient and found a perfect opening to knock Demon Kane off the top rope, solidifying his newfound momentum with a jaw-dropping flip over the ropes and to the outside of the ring. Fully aware of his opponent’s size and strength advantage, the champion began a methodical offense that kept Demon Kane grounded.
In an effort to build an advantage, The Architect targeted The Demon’s leg, but the 18-year squared circle veteran kept the intensity of the match intact as the WWE Universe inside the STAPLES Center slid to the collective edge of its seat, watching both Superstars battle back and forth. Countering a Pedigree, Demon Kane executed a chokeslam, nearly securing the pinfall. Escaping a Tombstone following the near-fall, the battle spilled beyond the confines of the ring into the announce area.
Attempting to send Rollins into a world of pain, The Demon tried to chokeslam the champion through the U.S. commentators’ announce table. With his unparalleled reflexes and agility, Rollins slid through his opponent’s legs and power-bombed him onto the Spanish announce table. Reeling from the counterattack, The Big Red Monster barely made it back to the ring before the referee’s 10-count.
Back inside the squared circle, Rollins remained in control, unleashing a flurry of knee strikes – each one taking the 7-foot Superstar off his feet. A gravity-defying Frog Splash brought the WWE Universe to its feet, certain that it would be enough to secure victory.
The impact of the Frog Splash wasn’t enough to extinguish the fire of Demon Kane, and it looked almost as though the tables had turned once more as The Big Red Monster rose, gripping Rollins by the throat . Once again, the cat-like reflexes of the WWE World Heavyweight Champion came into play, and he countered the chokeslam and seized the opportunity to execute The Pedigree to retain the championship.
The City of Angels was kind to Seth Rollins as he left the STAPLES Center with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship still around his waist. Although Demon Kane lost the match , it was ultimately Corporate Kane who was the real loser – being relieved of his duties as WWE Director of Operations.

Seth Rollins vs. John Cena (For the US Title)
Though his quest for a 16th World Championship has been put on hold, John Cena’s waist is no longer undecorated. The Cenation leader dethroned Seth Rollins with an Attitude Adjustment to reclaim the United States Championship at WWE Night of Champions.
Though Rollins had a WWE World Heavyweight Championship battle with Sting still ahead, he did not hold back in bringing the fight right to Cena, stunning the 15-time World Champion with a flipping neckbreaker in the early moments of the match. The confident Architect trash-talked his challenger before catching a big right hand to the jaw. Rollins stopped Cena’s attempted offense in its tracks with a sleeper hold, then attempted to cave Cena’s chest in with a devastating double stomp off the top turnbuckle.
Perhaps seeking to save his energy for his showdown with The Vigilante, Rollins turned his attention to the sold-out crowd in Houston, taunting the WWE Universe. That nearly cost the United States Champion his title, as Cena nearly pinned him with a surprise roll-up.
Rollins looked to be a step ahead of Cena as the bout wore on, cutting Cena off before he could hit the Five Knuckle Shuffle on several occasions. The Cenation leader fought back, preventing Rollins from hitting the Pedigree, while surprising the WWE Universe with several moves outside of his trademark arsenal, including a flipping powerbomb and a hurricanrana.
Cena looked to have Rollins in position for an Attitude Adjustment, but the United States Champion flipped , landed on his feet and staggered Cena with a series of superkicks. The Architect brought the fight to Cena on the floor, connecting with a dive over the ropes, but ate canvas on an attempted frog splash.
The resilient Cena refused to give in, catching Rollins with a tornado DDT off the ropes before rolling to the apron to collect himself. A desperate Rollins trapped Cena as he scaled the ropes, suplexing his challenger to the mat, then holding on and lifting the heavier Cena up for a second consecutive suplex. Rollins may have thought he had the 15-time World Champion on the ropes, but the wily veteran soon trapped the champion in the STF.
