An Enraged Emperor! Following the heinous attack on Dean Ambrose last week, which led to emergency surgery, Roman Reigns was beyond ready for payback. Roman was called into Kurt Angle’s office and was told by the Raw General Manager that he had Samoa Joe all to himself. Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe for later tonight.

Renee Young caught up with Roman Reigns before his match against Samoa Joe. Roman said that after what happened last week, tonight was payback for what happened to his brother Dean Ambrose. High on rage and fury, Roman said that after all was said and done, he was leaving Chicago still Champion.

Roman made his way out to the ring. From the look on his face, you can tell that tonight wasn’t about him. Tonight was not about the championship. Tonight was about respecting family. Roman Reigns watched his brother Dean Ambrose being taken out for months due to the attack from Samoa Joe. This means war.

Roman started off the match on fire. He quickly attacked Samoa Joe as soon as the bell rung. The only offense Samoa Joe had during the entire match was when due to a little interruption by the referee, which led to the Cocina Clutch. Reigns was an enraged Samoan who could not be tamed. Roman threw kicks and punches and missed the referees break count, which led to his disqualification.

Disqualification or not, Roman Reigns was not finished yet. Samoa Joe was in for a Samoan Beatdown. Roman Reigns caught Samoa Joe trying to run off. He caught him and ran him into the ring post not once, but twice. If you thought he was done, you would be wrong! Roman Reigns grabbed the steel steps and ran them straight into Samoa Joe. He was thinking about doing it again, but a referee stopped him. Reigns then opted for a chair, but when he swung it Samoa Joe moved out of the way. More referees came out and Samoa Joe slipped past them. Samoa Joe is running now… But for how long?

WWE.com has more on what happened during the match and the aftermath as Roman had Samoa Joe right where he wanted him. Check it out below.

Thank you for interacting with us tonight as we cover Monday Night Raw. We want to wish you and all of your family a Happy Holidays!

The good news for Samoa Joe is that Roman Reigns still hasn’t beaten him one-on-one. The bad news is that The Samoan Submission Machine missed out on the Intercontinental Title, as Reigns decided that, instead of beating Joe, he’d rather beat Joe up.

In other words, Roman remains Intercontinental Champion, even though a burst of excessive aggression forced the ref to call off the match and award the disqualification win to Joe. It’s difficult to blame Roman for the outburst, as Joe’s self-proclaimed “systematic destruction of The Shield” tore Dean Ambrose’s triceps tendon last week, putting The Lunatic Fringe on the shelf for, potentially, up to nine months, and Reigns picked up the torch in truly brutal fashion. The Intercontinental Champion came out swinging, forcing Joe into the uncommon position of fighting from underneath.

That he did, landing a suicide forearm that tweaked Reigns’ left arm. The Big Dog fought back with one good arm to force Joe into the corner, but once the champion threw the ref out of his way to continue his assault, he was disqualified. Freed from the constraints of the contest, however, Reigns went to town, dropping his foe with a targeted assault of Joe’s shoulder that a squadron of officials was powerless to stop. Joe narrowly avoided Reigns’ home-run swing with a steel chair, but the damage may well have been done. Somewhere, Ambrose is most likely smiling. In the backstage area, Seth Rollins visibly was.

Reigning Gold? After going to war with The New day at Survivor Series and coming out victorious, The Shield has their sights set on gold. Wait where does that leave Roman? Roman is a guest on MizTv tonight on Raw and he will let the WWE Universe into his future plans.
The Miz calls out Roman Reigns and the entire Shield come out. Miz says that he only wanted Roman, but we all know Roman is never alone. The Miz tries to take credit for The Shield reuniting, but the boys are not having any of it. Roman tells Miz since Ambrose and Rollins are going after gold, he wants gold of his own. He challenges The Miz to an Intercontinental Championship match tonight. The Miz says in order for that to happen, Roman has to go through the Miztourage. The entire Shield jumps the Miztourage ending the beating with a Triple Powerbomb.

Roman Reigns vs The Miz ended Raw for the night. Roman quickly wanted to beat down The Miz, but Miz tucked his tail and ran. Roman gave chase quickly catching up with him and smacking him in the face. Soon Miz blocked Roman’s Drive by and caught him with a kick to the stomach. Miz rolls in the ring leaving Reigns on the outside. Roman takes his time just beating the count of 10. After the commercial break, Roman is still in control. After a hard fought fight, it all went his way with A SPEAR!

YOUR WINNER AND NEWWW WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION ROMAN REIGNS!!!

Here is what WWE.com has to say about the new Grand Slam Champion.

Not wanting to be left out of The Shield’s collective pursuit of championship glory, Roman Reigns decided he wanted a title of his own during an interview on “Miz TV.” And with Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins going after the Raw Tag Team Titles, the closest prize available was The Miz’s Intercontinental Championship. A scant two hours later, and that championship had a new home in the trophy case of The Big Dog’s yard.

Yes, Reigns is officially the new Intercontinental Champion, having picked apart The A-Lister in Raw’s main event. Minus the safety net of The Miztourage, who were taken out by The Shield earlier in the night, The A-Lister gave The Big Dog a tougher fight than perhaps he was expecting — those It Kicks found their mark even with Reigns’ extra protection, and The Awesome One chop-blocked Reigns out of the air in the middle of a Superman Punch.

Despite a truly impressive effort by the champion and a last-minute interference by Cesaro & Sheamus, Reigns had one extra burst left to carry him to glory. The Big Dog kicked out of the Skull-Crushing Finale and emphatically Speared his way to the title after The Shield disposed of The Bar at ringside, setting off a celebration with his brothers to cap a performance that wasn’t just a home run — it was a Grand Slam.

The ‘Big Dog’ Invades Another Yard! There has been no secret that the Raw brand would strike the SmackDown brand for taking Raw ‘under siege’ a few weeks ago. The question was when? The time came a mere 5 days before Survivor Series. As of late both brands have been having a war of words with each other, even taking it overseas to Europe. A few have said that Raw was waiting on one of their biggest names to come back.

Roman Reigns made his much anticipated return to his yard this past Monday on Raw and promised New Day that The Hounds of Justice was on the prowl. New Day cost Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose their tag team championships and the ‘Big Dog’ was not happy about it. What would the newly reunited Shield do?

On Tuesday night as The New Day was well into their match with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn, the Arena burst into shock and surprise as Roman, Seth and Dean made their way marching down the stairs through the crowd. Once on the other side of the barricade, each took a spot around the ring. New Day, Owens and Zayn had nowhere to go. Zayn and Owens quickly tucked their tails and ran out of the ring, leaving New Day alone. Reigns, Rollins and Ambrose charged an onslaught of attacks on New Day. Always looking for a fight, The Usos came out to help New Day. Rollins and Ambrose quickly took them down as Roman watched. With a few more SmackDown Live stars coming to help, the Shield were subdued for a few moments. Not for long as Raw’s most elite came through the crowd to even things up. Kurt Angle came out to add his Monster to the mix. Braun Strowman quickly cleared the ring, leaving the Shield and Shane McMahon. As the Shield held up McMahon, Kurt screamed to him that he started it. Angle ordered the Hounds to finish off McMahon with not one but two Shield Triple Power bombs. McMahon seemed to be on the tail end of the war that he started. How will he redeem himself?WWE.com had this to say about the Raw Invasion.

Before turning their attention to a huge first-time-ever matchup against Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens, The New Day looked to impart the Power of Positivity upon their dream showdown against The Shield this Sunday at Survivor Series, noting that they were far more unified than The Hounds of Justice.

The subsequent match pitting Big E & Xavier Woods against Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens began as a knockdown, drag-out slugfest typical of an exciting SmackDown LIVE main event.

However, that all changed when The Shield’s music suddenly rang through the arena, and the combatants of SmackDown realized that Raw’s counterstrike had finally arrived.

When The Hounds of Justice surrounded the ring, Zayn and Owens opted to bail, and Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns attacked The New Day. The Usos soon joined the fray, followed by Cesaro and Sheamus, and the situation was transforming into an out-of-control brawl.

Meanwhile, the Raw Women’s division emerged backstage and delivered a systematic onslaught upon the Team Blue ladies, as Alexa Bliss punctuated the attack with a clubbing blow to Charlotte.

Back in the ring, another wave of Raw Superstars hit the ring, drawing Shane McMahon and a slew of SmackDown Superstars to join the fight, but things went from back to worse for the blue brand when Raw CommissionerKurt Angle summoned Braun Strowman into the ring to help clean house.

With SmackDown Superstars laid out in every direction, the Superstars of Raw converged on Shane McMahon. With The Shield holding SmackDown’s Commissioner, Angle made it clear to Shane that this counter-siege will be nothing compared to Sunday at Survivor Series.

Just to make sure the point was driven home, The Shield wrecked Shane with a Triple Powerbomb, Angle took down his nemesis with a picture-perfect Angle Slam, and The Hounds nearly sent Shane through the canvas with another of their trademark Triple Powerbombs.

November 14th, 2017  | Posted by: | Filed Under: Images,Raw Results,TV Recap,WWE

Last week, The New Day’s “Under Siege: Part II” led to the defrocking of Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins as Raw Tag Team Champions and more than a little embarrassment for Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, who failed to prevent SmackDown LIVE from infiltrating Raw for the second time. However, with Roman Reigns back in the game after an illness, The Hounds of Justice are coming to collect.

Furious over Angle’s selection of Jason Jordan to Raw’s Survivor Series team (SmackDown LIVE answered by picking John Cena) and unimpressed with his promise to start the Survivor Series match himself, Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon was seemingly about to fire The Olympic Hero. Before she could get the words out, however, The Shield emerged and vouched for the WWE Hall of Famer as a leader. And as for The New Day making “fools” of The Hounds last week, as Stephanie stated? Reigns had an idea of his own: A fight between the two teams at Survivor Series. And The New Day accepted. Hounds vs. Unicorns it is.

It’s official: They’re back. In their first Six-Man Tag Team Match in over three years, The Shield got back to business in absolutely ferocious fashion, making a meal of The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus, sending themselves into battle against The New Day on a high note and turning their opponents’ tough talk on an earlier “Miz TV” on its head.

Well, in fairness, The A-Lister (who’s got either Baron Corbin or Sin Cara lined up for Sunday) and The Bar (staring down The Usos) did get a leg up on The Hounds of Justice with a surprisingly coordinated plan of attack. But the three champions’ lead over The Shield was as tenuous as the countless other Six-Man teams who have tried them, and once The Shield disposed of The Bar with a Superman Punch (to Cesaro) and Dirty Deeds (to Sheamus), Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins fed Miz into a Spear from Roman Reigns before all three put him away with the bone-crunching Triple Powerbomb.

Hounds Of Justice! Last week on Raw, Roman came out to interrupt The Miz and The Bar. He said “Who said anything about a rumor?” Soon after Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins joined him. They made their way to the ring in Shield fashion, attacking Miz, Sheamus & Cesaro. Kurt Angle made a historic match with Miz and The Bar facing The Shield at TLC.

Moments after the historic match was made, The Shield was back to their old ways, attacking Braun Strowman. Strowman laid waste to each member of The Shield. This was payback. Noting that Dean said that it didn’t matter how many people they had to go through, Angle added Braun Strowman to the match.

Tonight on Raw, The Shield interrupted Kurt Angle. Roman said Kurt can either go on his own or he can get thrown out. The Shield said that after 5 years3.5 years, they were back and better than ever. They don’t want to wait until Sunday, let’s fight right here and now.

Kurt Angle says no. He also states that the ringside will be cleared. Also if Braun Strowman loses, he is out of the match Sunday. If Strowman wins, The Miz and crew can add a person to their team.

The steel cage match gets off to a huge start as both Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman Show their incredible strength. From using the steel cage as a weapon to using the ring, both competitors had something they were fighting for. When it seemed to go in Roman’s favor of winning the match, The Bar, not taking being banned from ringside, showed up to lend a hand to the 7 foot tall Strowman. Right on their tails, Ambrose and Rollins show up. Their fight takes over and cameras follow them to the back. No one knows what happened during the two minutes that the cameras were on the backstage area. Back in the ring, Roman gave Braun everything he had including three Superman punches. Out of nowhere Kane appears and chock slams Reigns three times and power drives him into the ring. Having Kane on their side, allows Miz and his crew to take the upper hand for now. The Shield is one of the greatest factions of this era, so we will have to wait and see if they can overcome the odds. For more in-depth highlights and coverage from tonight, check out WWE.com ‘s coverage below.

The Shield may have formalized their reunion last week with their trademark fist bump, but for the first time in three years, Raw opened with the crackle of “Sierra, Hotel, India… ” and the sight of Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns donning black and marching through the audience to surround someone in the ring — in this case, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle, who quickly turned over the mic and made his exit.

It was awesome (as the WWE Universe chanted), and if there were any concerns that The Hounds of Justice had lost a step, they immediately launched into a scorched-earth proclamation to pick up right where they left off at WWE TLC. And even though Ambrose’s tough talk inadvertently got Braun Strowman added to the upcoming TLC Match last week, The Lunatic Fringe only doubled down on his resolve — he reiterated that The Shield could take on any number of opponents and challenged their TLC foes to throw down on the spot.
The Miz, Braun Strowman and The Bar came to the stage to oblige, but Angle got between the two squadrons, reminding them that The Bar would challenge Ambrose & Rollins for the Raw Tag Team Titles and Strowman would battle The Big Dog in a Steel Cage Match tonight. It was enough to stop the fists from flying, but there’ll be no such restraint on anyone’s part come Sunday.

Raw General Manager Kurt Angle banned The Miz, The Bar and The Shield from ringside to prevent outside interference and preserve the integrity of Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman in a Steel Cage, a match that would determine the complexion of the big TLC Match on Sunday. But he didn’t say anything about inside interference, and now Strowman’s victory expands The Shield’s opponents from four to five as a result.

To be fair, the rival teams ignored Angle’s initial decree as well, rushing the cage despite the General Manager’s orders. The Miz’s crew struck first, with The Bar cutting Roman off at the pass when he tried to escape the cage after momentarily felling Strowman. The Shield quickly neutralized the interference, but The Monster Among Men hauled Reigns over the cage right into a superplex, and when the brawl between The Shield and The Bar continued into the parking lot, Miz himself locked them out of the arena by closing the door of the loading dock.

Reigns managed to fight his way back into contention by hitting Strowman with three Superman Punches and a Spear, but the tide quickly turned when the arena plunged into red light and Kane rose from beneath the ring to administer two bone-rattling chokeslams to the former WWE Champion. Strowman followed up with a Running Powerslam, The Big Red Monster piled on with a Tombstone, and a second Running Powerslam from The Gift of Destruction earned the decisive pinfall and expanded his squadron by one for Sunday in the process. And, as Miz informed the WWE Universe, in case that wasn’t enough of a hint, The Devil’s Favorite Demon was, indeed, his final teammate for WWE TLC.

Dean Ambrose said The Shield could take on five opponents and win. The Hounds of Justice are about to be put to that exact test.

Emperor Uncrowned! Roman Reigns has been dealing with several thorns as of late. The Miztourage. The Miz and Miztourage think that they are The New Shield. Last week Roman Reigns was granted a shot for the Intercontinental Championship. Roman knows that he will have to disable The Miztourage first. Did Roman Reigns get crowned or did The Miztourage find a way to tear down the Empire? After the match, The Miztourage began to assault and take down Roman Reigns. After Raw went off air, Roman was seen nursing his injuries in the locker room. He was then visited by the tag Team Champions Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose. Nothing was said between the three, so that leaves us to wonder have The Shield reunited? Here is what WWE.com had to say about tonight’s match.

The Miz has demanded respect for months now, but the Intercontinental Champion aping The Shield with his squad might have been a bridge too far. After he and The Miztourage mimicked The Shield’s entrance through the crowd (one week after doing the fist bump, mind you) before his title match with Roman Reigns, The Big Dog snapped, obliterating Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel with a steel chair before the match could start.

Miz, impressively, nearly finagled his way to a count-out win in the ensuing title bout, even reversing the Superman Punch into a Skull-Crushing Finale, but Reigns would not be denied. He kicked out of Miz’s big move and clocked him with a Superman Punch, but Cesaro & Sheamus quickly interfered before Reigns could uncork a Spear on The A-Lister.

“The Bar” — whom Reigns had less-than-flattering words for after their beatdown of his old allies Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins — worked in perfect sync with Miz to decimate Reigns, feeding him into each other’s signature moves (Neutralizer, Brogue Kick, Skull-Crushing Finale) before administering The Shield’s final signature, the Triple Powerbomb, to Reigns.

Ironically, while Reigns licked his wounds at the very end of Raw, he received a pointed visit from Ambrose and Rollins, who wordlessly stood by The Big Dog’s side in solidarity. The Miz has been asking all along if The Shield could hang with today’s WWE, three years after they imploded. He might get his answer yet.
Featured Superstars

After Roman Reigns suffered a 3-on-1 beatdown at the hands of Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro & Sheamus, he received a visit from Raw Tag Team Champions Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose, marking the first time the former members of The Shield have stood united in three years. Have The Hounds of Justice returned?

We go to the ring and out comes Roman Reigns to a mixed reactions.

Reigns stops and takes in all the noise. Reigns gives John Cena props as being one of the best talkers but says sometimes he says stupid shit, like that Reigns tries to be the next Cena. Reigns says he doesn’t look like a jacked up white guy with a buzzcut because if he did he wouldn’t have a career here. If you don’t believe him, ask Alex Riley. Reigns goes on and calls Cena the biggest hypocrite to step in a WWE ring and if you don’t believe him, Cena will tell you himself. Reigns shows us footage from February 2012 with Cena dissing The Rock for being a part-timer for Hollywood.

Reigns asks the crowd if we should bring Cena out. He tells them to get louder. He’s afraid that won’t be loud enough because Cena isn’t here tonight. Reigns says No Mercy will be just like that WrestleMania but it will be a different Samoan beating Cena. Reigns goes on and drops the mic after knocking Cena for being a movie star. Reigns greets some fans at ringside before making his way up the ramp.

Roman Reigns vs. Jason Jordan

Jason Jordan faced John Cena last week in a losing effort. Reigns rubbed it in Cena’s face that he couldn’t easily put a rookie like Jordan away.

Jordan extends his hand for a shake, but Reigns declines. The bell rings, and they circle the ring before locking up. John Cena is watching backstage. They give a clean break. Reigns gets a waistlock applied, but Jordan quickly gets out and goes for a takedown. Reigns doesn’t go down and instead connects with a pair of right hands. Reigns drives him into the corner twice. Jordan tries to fight back, but Reigns again backs him up with a punch. Reigns starts clubbing him in the corner, but Jordan quickly counters before connecting with a belly-to-belly overhead suplex. Jordan drives some shoulders into Reigns’ midsection before punching away at him. Jordan puts him in the corner and stomps him down. Jordan whips him hard into the corner before whipping him sternum-first into the corner. Jordan charges, but Reigns explodes out of the corner with a clothesline. Reigns gets him in the corner and hits ten clubs before hitting the ropes for a big boot. Reigns goes for a Superman Punch, but Jordan counters into a crossface. Reigns gets to the bottom rope and gets out of the ring.

-Commercial Break-

We come back from the break to see Jordan fighting up to his feet. Jordan tries to fight back, but Reigns head-butts him down. John Cena is still watching backstage. Reigns whips him hard into the corner before hitting a snap suplex. Reigns applies a chin lock, but Jordan fights up and elbows out. Jordan hits the ropes, but Reigns floors him with a Samoan Drop for a near fall. Reigns then goes back to the chin lock. Jordan eventually fights up and powers Reigns to the corner. Reigns tries to boot him back, but Jordan counters and hits another belly-to-belly overheard suplex. They both take some time to fight up, and Reigns goes for a Samoan Drop, but Jordan slides off and sends him into the corner before hitting a clothesline for a two count.

They get to their feet and trade punches before Jordan hits a pair of forearms and a dropkick for a near fall. Jordan powers him to the corner and goes for a belly-to-belly, but Reigns punches out. Jordan ducks a clothesline and hits a snap back suplex for a two count. Jordan waits for Reigns to get up and hits a running shoulder thrust. Jordan pulls the top of his singlet down before hitting a pair of northern lights suplexes for a near fall. Jordan quickly goes to the crossface, but Reigns gets to the bottom rope to break the hold. Reigns quickly elbows him back and avoids a shoulder thrust. Jordan hits the ring post shoulder-first and falls out of the ring. Reigns goes outside and hits Jordan with a Drive By Dropkick. Reigns gets him in the ring and connects with a Superman Punch. The boos pick up before Reigns connects with a Spear for the win.

Winner by Pinfall: Roman Reigns

After the match, Reigns recovers as his music hits and we see Cena backstage watching again. Reigns approaches Jordan in the corner and extends his hand for a shake. They shake and we get another look at Cena backstage. Charly Caruso approaches Cena for comments on the victory. Cena says he has something to say but he’s going to go say it to Reigns’ face. Reigns poses in the corner as we go to commercial.

-Commercial Break-

John Cena and Roman Reigns meet in the ring

Roman Reigns is in the ring waiting, and John Cena’s music hits. The crowd “serenades” him by singing, “John Cena sucks” to the theme of his music. Cena gets in the ring and holds up a microphone. Cena says it’s not a nightstick for his tactical pants. Cena is excited about what he’s going to say. Last week, Reigns was upset that rookie almost beat Cena. Now the rookie, Jason Jordan, almost beat “the guy.” Cena tells him to explain, but keep it to one sentence like, “It’s my yard.” Reigns says he was out here having a great match, something Cena knows nothing about. Reigns says he’s had more great matches in two years than Cena has had in his entire career. Cena loves it. Reigns makes it easy for him. Cena does have to stay sharp – he just has to let Reigns talk. Reigns is burying himself. It’s not to say that Reigns isn’t good. Reigns has skill and ability, but he’s got his head so far up his own ass that he’s like a one-man human centipede. Reigns actually thinks he runs this place and is responsible for the crowd. No one has ever cut Reigns down to size. That’s why he’s here. Cena has been accused of spinning things, but he challenges himself to try anything. Reigns thinks he’s already made it, but the second you think that is the beginning of the end. Cena says Reigns will learn what real failure is all about. Cena gets in his face and says week after week he lets Reigns take shot after shot, but he fails and fails. That is not what THE guy does. THE guy steps up, stays sharp, and does his homework, which is something Reigns should have done before he brought his sorry ass out here. If Reigns really is THE guy, he’ll dust himself off, stand up, and show him something at No Mercy. Cena says Reigns doesn’t have it in him. No Mercy will be a cakewalk.

Cena goes to leave, but Reigns tells him to bring his “bitch ass” back in here. Reigns says usually a superstar calls out John Cena to make a name for themselves, but Cena came here to RAW to call him out. Reigns thinks it’s because he’s selling the tickets Cena hasn’t sold in five years. Cena says Reigns isn’t doing his job, but ticket sales are great, revenue is sky high, and WWE can make it without him. WWE doesn’t need Cena. Cena needs WWE because he can’t break into Hollywood. Reigns says if Cena needs help, he knows a guy (meaning his cousin The Rock). Reigns tells Cena to do his big talk, but it means nothing because he can’t back it up. Cena says when people push you over the line, you have to fight fire with fire. Cena says at No Mercy, Reigns can consider it like a drug test – he’s not getting past him! Cena then walks off while the crowd gasps.

Later on we see Roman Reigns backstage watching the John Cena versus Braun Strowman match.

We see Reigns backstage watching again as Braun mocks Cena with the “you can’t see me” gesture. Charly Caruso approaches Reigns for comments on what just happened. Reigns says The Monster didn’t show Cena any mercy but neither will he. Reigns walks off as we go to replays as Braun continues to stand over Cena.

Back from the break and RAW General Manager Kurt Angle is in the ring for a contract signing. He’s here to make official the big match that was announced on WWE’s website earlier today. Angle calls out John Cena to the ring.

Cena says this match is WrestleMania worthy but Angle is ready to get it done now. Cena says this is why he came to RAW, to step in the ring with The Big Dog. Cena says Reigns hasn’t been just the blue chip prospect, he’s been the blue chip prospect that’s been protected against anyone in his path. Cena talks about himself and how there’s no protection there. Cena says he wants to fight Reigns because he knows Reigns doesn’t want to fight him. The music interrupts and out comes Reigns to some boos.

Reigns wants to get this straight – he’s scared to fight Cena? Reigns wonders if that’s what is in Cena’s head. Reigns says Cena probably won’t understand this because no one has ever said this to him but Cena is not as big of a deal as he thinks he is. Reigns says he’s done something Cena will never be able to do – he retired The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Reigns says maybe he just doesn’t need to fight Cena. Cena ends up calling Reigns a corporate Cena bootleg. Cena says Reigns isn’t the guy, he’s just a guy… a guy trying desperately to fill shoes he never will. Cena says listen carefully young man… he’s not The Undertaker, he’s not a battered veteran with a bad hip at the end of his career. Cena is the fastest and strongest he’s ever been. Cena says Reigns knows if he signs that contract, his Roman Empire… can’t see me. Reigns comes back and says fans don’t boo Cena because they want him to be a bad guy, they boo him because he sucks. Cena makes a joke about Angle getting the “you suck” chants and Reigns tells him to shut up. Reigns looks to be searching for words and Cena disses him. Reigns tells him to shut up again. Reigns ends up calling Cena a fake bitch. A part timing, fake bitch.

Reigns goes on about Cena being a part-timer and how he buries younger talents. Reigns says that’s how Cena stays on top of the mountain. Reigns calls him a backstabbing shark. Reigns says what bothers Cena is that he can’t bury Reigns, he can’t touch him. Reigns says he’s the one guy in WWE who Cena can’t see. Reigns asks why he would want to lessen himself, his bloodline and his legacy to be the next John Cena when he could be the one and only Roman Reigns.

Cena says Reigns is a fool, a damn fool. Cena says Reigns of all people comes down to the ring and uses the same poor excuse that the others in front of him have done. Reigns, with all his abilities, has the gall to blame Cena. Cena congratulates Reigns, saying it took him 5 years to cut a half-decent promo but now Cena is about to cut him down to size. Cena says everyone thinks he has a magical golden shovel. Cena can’t tell if Reigns is blind or stupid. Cena says the fans have always held the keys and always will. Cena goes on, mentioning how he won the United States Title and used it to help guys like AJ Styles and Kevin Owens. He says Reigns took the US Title as a demotion.
