They then announced that there would be four matches through out RAW and the winner of each one would be one participant of a fatal four way at the end of the night.

The winner of the fatal four way would officially be named as Seth Rollins' #1 contender for Survivor Series.

We saw Roman Reigns defeat Kofi Kingston, Kevin Owens beat Cesaro, Alberto Del Rio overcame Neville and Dolph Ziggler beat Big E.

The four would then meet at the end of the night to decide the next challenger for the onlooking Rollins.

The match itself was fast and furious and several times saw battles between superstars we have wanted to see in the ring one on one many times before.

It did however come down to Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns with Reigns hitting the super man punch as a counter to Owens' pop up power bomb.

Reigns will now move on to Survivor Series where he will surely face Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in his first chance at challenging for the title since WrestleMania 31.
