Sheamus got the roll up on Rollins thanks to the distraction from Cesaro, who was at ringside. Corey Graves made a point to say that Rollins could have used a friend to watch his back. Sheamus and Cesaro continued the attack at ringside. They looked up towards the entrance way to see if Dean Ambrose would run out but he didn’t. Fans chanted “we want Ambrose” as the attack continued in the ring.
