The show started as the Number 1 contender for the WWE World Heavyweight championship Roman Reigns came out to the arena. Reigns entered the ring and said that it felt him so good to see Casus City. He said that Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman thought they could intimidate him.
Before he could finish Mark Henry interfered, he said that he wanted to find out what Roman had in that ring. Henry said that these people did not see what happened to him last week, he showed the footage from last week on the big screen where the World’s Strongest Man tried to tell the Samoan Superstar he can’t beat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31, but the returning competitor found out the hard way that you don’t tell Reigns what he can’t do. After getting pushed by his massive detractor, WWE’s powerhouse Superstar responded by delivering a Superman Punch and Spearing Henry through the barricade.
After the footage, Henry said that he got what he deserved. So Henry said that at WrestleMania 31, not only did he expect Roman Reigns to win but he was putting all his money on him, because Roman Reigns could and he would.
Seth Rollins came out with J & J and Kane (Kane working as the bodyguard of Seth Rollins? Seriously Kane, how worse could you go?) Kane asked Henry since the World’s Strongest Athlete became the World’s Stringest Self Help Guru. He asked Henry if he seriously believed for a single second that Roman Reigns would beat Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31.
Seth Rollins raised his Money in the Bank briefcase and said that anything could happen at WrestleMania. He said that the entire world was buzzing since he accepted the challenge made by Randy Orton for a match at WrestleMania. He informed that Orton was not here tonight and he would not be here tonight since J & J blocked every door way and entrance of the building. He said that it was not for his protection, it was for Randy Orton’s own good. He was saving all of his aggression for WrestleMania.
Kane announced a tag team match which was Seth Rollins and Kane vs. Roman Reigns and mark Henry.
With The Road to WrestleMania bearing down on SmackDown, Roman Reigns overcame authoritative odds, Dolph Ziggler outlasted his fellow Intercontinental Title contenders in a grueling Intercontinental Contender Gauntlet Match and Randy Orton slithered past J&J Security for a main event ambush.
Roman Reigns kicked off SmackDown, and much like last week, was quickly interrupted by Mark Henry. Only this time, The World’s Strongest Man arrived a believer in the No. 1 contender, giving his personal endorsement for The Big Dog in his WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31.
The Authority quickly interjected themselves into the conversation with Seth Rollins informing everyone that Randy Orton would not be allowed in the building thanks to the world-class efforts of J& J Security. Corporate Kane then announced that he and Mr. Money in the Bank would be facing Henry & Reigns in the evening’s main event.
