– Tonight’s WWE RAW opens up from Oklahoma City with Dean Ambrose heading to the ring. We see ladders set up inside the ring with the Money In the Bank briefcase hanging high. Cesaro, Alberto Del Rio, Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho and Sami Zayn are waiting at the tops of the ladders with mics. Michael Cole is joined by JBL and Byron Saxton.
Kevin Owens speaks first and takes a shot at Sami Zayn. They all trade promos and a fight breaks out, ending with Cesaro standing tall. Teddy Long’s music hits and out he comes to the stage.
Teddy says he’s here to take SmackDown to the new live era. He does a promo about putting everyone in a match but it makes no sense. Everyone looks confused. Stephanie McMahon comes to the stage and acknowledges what he said made no sense. He calls her babygirl and she says she is not his babygirl. Stephanie respects Teddy’s tenure but says they haven’t made any decisions on who will be running SmackDown yet. Teddy says he doesn’t have time for Stephanie and wants to know where Shane McMahon is. Stephanie says Shane is not here tonight because he’s on vacation. Stephanie sends Teddy to the back with no music and announces Sami vs. Del Rio, Ambrose vs. Owens and Jericho vs. Cesaro for tonight. We go to commercial with everyone arguing.
– Tom Phillips is backstage with Sami Zayn, asking if Sami considers himself an underdog in the match with Alberto Del Rio tonight. Sami talks about Del Rio already winning MITB but he knows he can beat Del Rio. Del Rio walks in and taunts Sami before walking off. Back to commercial.
Sami Zayn vs. Alberto Del Rio
Back and forth to start the match. We go to commercial with Sami taking control on the floor.
Back from the break and Del Rio is in control. Sami finally looks to make a comeback but Del Rio avoids a Helluva Kick. Del Rio takes Sami to the top but gets knocked back to the mat. Del Rio runs right back with an enziguri. Sami is turned upside down in the corner as Del Rio climbs back to the top. Del Rio wastes time and Sami pulls him to the mat. Sami pulls himself up but Del Rio shoves his head into the ring post. Del Rio kicks him and climbs back up for the stomp and the win while looking up at the briefcase.
Winner: Alberto Del Rio
