WWE SmackDown Results – June 4, 2015

– Seth Rollins’ music hits and he comes to the ring with a chair in his hand. Rollins delivers a promo by himself. Rollins discusses how he turned on The Shield nearly a year ago. Rollins says that at Money in the Bank, he’ll retrieve the title at the top of the ladder – a title he “rightfully earned.” Dean Ambrose interrupts on the big screen and says Rollins hasn’t earned anything and that he’s been driven nuts that Rollins keeps calling himself the champion, despite losing to Ambrose at Elimination Chamber.

No. 1 Contender for the Tag Team Titles: The Ascension vs. Lucha Dragons vs. Prime Time Players
