Roman Reigns was backstage before the show started and was stopped by Kayla Braxton. She asked him about Daniel Bryan and Rowan and he said he has something to say - but it was better to save it for the ring.

The show kicked off with Kofi Kingston and he offered Randy a shot at the WWE Championship because all he ever wanted to do was prove he was a worthy champ. Randy appeared on the Titantron and threatened Kofi's family who were staying in the same hotel as him.

Kofi ran backstage and relentlessly assaulted Orton. He slammed his head against the wall but Orton placed him on a table and started punching him. He hit a draping DDT onto the floor, slowing things down, said "Stupid" three times before being escorted back, while the officials tended to Kingston.
