A segment recaps Ryback’s injury and inability to defend the Intercontinental Championship at Battleground as originally planned, and it also sees The Miz complain and attempt to petition to be awarded the title instead, only to be interrupted by The Big Show walking out, hitting him with a K.O Punch, and then leaving again.
After a video recapping the events that led to the upcoming match, Seth Rollins is pitted against Brock Lesnar (accompanied by Paul Heyman) for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in a match which ends in an apparent No Contest, when The Undertaker’s bell tolls as the arena plunges into darkness, then gets lit up again with Rollins and the referee nowhere in sight, but The Undertaker standing in the ring across from Lesnar.
The Undertaker attacks a shocked Lesnar with a low blow, chokeslam, and two tombstone piledrivers before making his kneeling pose, leaving while his theme plays as Battleground goes off the air.
