Raw Tag team and demanding a rematch. Angle rejected them on that front, but the confrontation drew Jordan and led to a match between the young champion and Cesaro. At that time, Rollins came to match the odds and, more importantly, dispel some wisdom.

Rollins gave a bit of hard love to a punished Jordan, saying that while he would be ringside for the sake of his teammate and his titles, he did not have high hopes for Jordan’s chances of “self-absorbed” against Cesaro.
