The Authority kicked off Raw by introducing the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Rollins. Stephanie McMahon claimed that just because Dean Ambrose had the belt in hands doesn't make him a champion, it just makes him a thief. Roman Reigns interrupted to mock Rollins by stating that he had been beaten the night before.

Rollins ranted that he didn't lose and will prove that he can beat Ambrose cleanly in a rematch. Stephanie got angered by Reigns' involvement and put him up against King Barrett with his Money in the Bank slot on the line

Barrett and Reigns went pound for pound for fifteen minutes until the powerhouse was able to dodge a Bull Hammer to land a spear for the win. The Money in the Bank place was once again secured by Reigns who will be looking to get another shot at the title following his near miss at WrestleMania.

The new Intercontinental Champion Ryback was set to defend his gold against The Miz. The Big Guy was fresh off his Elimination Chamber win but before he could put his title on the line, Big Show came out and hit a KO Punch on Miz. Show then stated that he's next in line for a shot at the much sought after title as he stared down Ryback.

There was a stand off between Kevin Owens and John Cena following the NXT Champion's surprising win on Sunday. Cena was furious about his loss the night before and dropped his belt to signal for a fight. Owens also dropped his belt to hint at the challenge but changed his mind and walked backstage to keep Cena waiting for another day.

Dolph Ziggler rolled up Kofi Kingston for the pin early on in his match, which pleased Lana who watched on. Kingston's New Day teammates attacked Ziggler after the match until The Prime Time Players ran down to even the odds. Ziggler and Kingston then competed again but this time in a six man tag team match. Titus O'Neil ended the match with a win for his team as Ziggler joined him and Darren Young in the 'Millions of Dollars' dance.

Reigns jumped right back into action on orders of The Authority to take on Mark Henry who returned at the Elimination Chamber. The match fell to the outside before Reigns managed to climb back in before the ten count for Henry to lose. The heavyweight was irate and hit the World's Strongest Slam and Splash on Reigns.

Nikki Bella defended her Divas Championship against Paige following her title retention at the weekend. Paige was in control until the Bellas performed their classic "Twin Magic", which saw them switch roles for Brie to score the win without he referee realising.

Sheamus took on Randy Orton in an all out brawl that saw the Celtic Warrior get disqualified for being too ruthless outside of the ring. The bell didn't stop Sheamus as he delivered a continued beat down on the Viper and ended with a Brogue Kick. Sheamus looked on with a cocky smile before slowly walking away.
