Balor went outside to grab a ladder, but Rollins attacked him from behind. Rollins and Balor were taken out by Owens on the outside and he even took out Rey who dived upon him from the top rope, but Owens took him out by placing a ladder between him and Rey.

In the second instance, Rey denied Owens from taking the contract by pulling Owens down from the ladder but only to get his head bashed into the ladder.
