We get a promo backstage from Seth Rollins, in which he laments Dean Ambrose’s heel turn, saying he half expected him to show up tonight. He turns to leave when Charly Caruso stops him and says she has heard that Seth will defend his Intercontinental Championship against Ambrose at TLC next month. Rollins says he won’t have any more excuses then, and walks off.

Winner Via Disqualification: Ronda Rousey
After the referee calls for the bell, Charlotte throws Ronda into the steel steps. She then grabs the Kendo stick and batters Ronda with it until it shatters into a million pieces. She beats it over her head and everything. Charlotte gets her back in the ring and looks to beat Ronda with a steel chair but the referee takes it from her. She leaves the ring and walks off. You can see bruises all over Ronda already. Charlotte then returns and hits Natural Selection onto a steel chair. Not sure if this was meant to be a heel turn but the whole arena is chanting “Yes!”. Charlotte again wants to use the chair but four more referees come down to stop her. Charlotte beatsall four referees before grabbing the chair and wrapping it around Ronda’s head and stomping it! Wow! 5-0 Raw but at what cost? It’s kinda funny hearing the commentators talk about how heinous and despicable that was, while the fans chant “thank you Charlotte”. Ronda looks battered and emotionally scarred as she leaves the ring, and the fans boo her and chant for Becky. She stands atop the ramp and turns to look back and the fans boo loudly. No sympathy tonight.
