The referee rings the bell at Rollins request and counts to ten, ringing the bell again and declaring Rollins the victor as a result of a forfeit. Rollins insults Reigns and says that he left him having to rectify the situation, so as an opportunist he issues an open challenge to anybody in the locker room.
