With the Commissioners and General Managers of both RAW and Smackdown at ringside, the championship found it's way back to Dean Ambrose.
The Lunatic Fringe not only won the title for himself, but also for his new home of Smackdown, resulting in Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan celebrating relentlessly at the end of the show.
Ambrose won a match which saw him work together with long time rival of Rollins, saw the three men battle hard and saw the entire crowd once again turn against Roman Reigns.
Reigns was booed from the second he entered the arena and everytime he was on the receiving end of a blow from one of his former Brothers, the crowd erupted.
Reigns would have a major say int he finale however as he delivered a superman punch then a spear to Rollins to end his night.
As Reigns pinned the Architect however, Ambrose would come in, hit him with Dirty Deeds and count the three as he regained his title.
Tonight marked the final time we could see the three men in the ring together as they were drafted to separate shows, with Rollins and Reigns heading to RAW, and WWE Champion Ambrose heading to Smackdown.
Ambrose regained the title for Smackdown which now leaves the WWE's flagship show without a Champion.
This could now surely lead to a new champion being crowned and we may only have to wait until tomorrow night to find out just how Stephanie McMahon and Mick Foley plan to do it.
