After losing his Intercontinental Championship belt to Dolph Ziggler last week, The Architect Seth Rollins invoked his rematch clause in this week’s Monday Night Raw. But in spite of the Kingslayer picking up a win over the former World Champion, he failed to clinch the title from the Showoff, as he won the match via disqualification. The pain of losing the title was clearly visible on Rollins, who started off the match with utmost intensity.
The commentators at the ringside started contemplating Rollins’ early aggression in the match, predicting that the match will end in a Disqualification or a count out. As per the rules, the title exchanges hands only via pinfall and submission. But with Ziggler’s ally, Drew McIntyre watching the match from the ringside, Rollins’ chance to win the title remained at hard odds. As the action spilled outside the ring, the former NXT champion tried to intervene but caught referee’s attention, who ejected him from the ringside.
With McIntyre out of the frame, it looked like Rollins will be able to pick up the win. As Rollins executed a Superplex-Falcon Arrow combination, it seemed that the win was close. But McIntyre came inside the ring and attacked Rollins from behind, forcing the referee to end the match in Rollins favour via Disqualification. After the match ended, McIntyre and Ziggler started launching an attack on Rollins, before the Big Dog, Roman Reigns, the former member of the Shield, came to Rollins’ aid. He gave Ziggler a spear and forced him and McIntyre to retreat.
