Sami drops Sami twice consecutively and he survived People are loving it. Kevin Owens counters and starts slapping sami Zayn. Zayn wants more.

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns for WWE Championship

A Shield promo is playing before we see Shield member fight each other.

Both RAW and Smack Down managers are here to support there performer. Roasters watching on TV to support their show.

Match begins as Seth asks both Dean and Roman to get the fist touch move, signature Shield move. Roman throws him out, and Dean and Roman goes after Seth. Once Seth is out, Dean goes for rollover win over Roman. And now they two fight as well.

Seth joins the party and now there is no pairing at all. Every man for himself rule begins. Roman Reigns throws Seth Rollins over barricade. Dean Ambrose runs on the announce tables and ump on both of them. All men are down, I repeat ALL MEN ARE DOWN.

We have an interesting team here, Seth and Dean both go after Roman. Waow. They drive Roman through the announce table just they did it in their Shield days. And once again Seth Rollins took the chair and ditched Dean Ambrose, amazing. Seth delivers double body slams from top rope to Dean but he survives. Roman superman punches Dean, Seth hits Roman with a Pedigree, a very close 2 count. A superman punch to Seth, Dean Ambrose enters the ring and hits Roman with Dirty Deeds. He wins and retains the title.

Winner: Dean Ambrose Retains the WWE Championship

Dean Ambrose, Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan celebrates. Smack Down Roaster gets out and celebrates the party.

Analysis: This was fairly a good match with less power show from Roman Reigns. Dean and Seth had most of the control. Not many close 2 counts only one of them. I would rate this match as 3.5/5.
