Ryback hits a back body drop and a powerslam for a near fall. Ryback hits the "Meat Hook" and sets Rollins up for "Shell Shock". Rollins counters, pokes Ryback in the eyes, hits a flying knee, then plants Ryback with two super kicks. Rollins covers and scores the pin.
- Backstage, Naomi and Tamina say they are tired of being overlooked, being empty handed, Brie Bella's husband, Daniel Bryan, is a joke and they run the Divas Division now.

Ambrose puts the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on Reigns' shoulder and tells Reigns not to worry because Ambrose will take it on Sunday.
And that closed out this week's Smackdown.
