More than one year since Brock Lesnar first split his arm like a twig, Triple H stood in a ring surrounded by a steel cage and spoke of finality. He spoke of the war between the two of them, the battles, the blood, but most of all, he spoke about the hate that had brewed between them. So it was with hate in his heart that Triple H beckoned his monstrous foe to join him in his "home," and lo and behold, The Anomaly answered with Paul Heyman at his side. Although Heyman initially dispelled Brock from the notion of fighting The King of Kings without a proper payday, The Game's mind games won out in the end and Lesnar entered the cage, battering Triple H about before The Game found his second wind, hauling Lesnar through the cage door. With a sneer on his face, Lesnar lifted Heyman to his feet and made his exit.
Good news and bad news: The good news is, The Shield have finally been defeated. The bad news is, not only did it take a technicality for the NXT alums to suffer their first loss in a Six-Man setting, but they seemed to have willingly taken the defeat for the sake of decimating John Cena. The men in black's opponents for the night were the same as a couple of weeks ago - Cena & Team Hell No - but there was one twist to their latest bout: The match would be contested under elimination rules. The twist seemed likely to even the odds better, but it was Cena & Co. who found themselves at a disadvantage when their numbers thinned before The Shield's did. Cena nearly rallied to win the match after Bryan & Kane were tossed, trapping Dean Ambrose in the STF before he was swarmed into the Triple Powerbomb. Cena's night went from bad to worse in quick measure afterward when Ryback emerged from the locker room, striking The Champ in his injured foot to give himself one final leg up (literally) on Cena before Extreme Rules.
