The Emperor’s Open Challenge! Roman is out first tonight. It’s no surprise last week was a big week. Shield reunited, they beat New Day at Survivor Series and Roman won the Intercontinental title. The crowd chants you deserve it and he said it’s been a long time and thank you. Roman then goes to what happened to Miz after Raw went off air. He says Miz is gone for awhile and as long as he has the title, he will be a fighting champion. He says if you want it, step up and take it. Miztourage comes out complaining about Roman disrespecting Miz. They say they can’t avenge Miz’s loss but someone else can. Elias. Elias comes out and says tonight he will take the IC championship. Roman says Elias wants to walk with the big dog. But he should look at Axel. He will have a neck brace tonight.

Roman got a huge pop before he came out for the title match. The crowd chanted “We want Roman”. At match start, the crowd is split in cheers and boos for Roman, but you can tell who the crowd is for. A lockup starts the match. Elias with knees to the stomach. He pins Roman twice. Roman kicks out both times. Reigns is down, hopefully he can get back in the match. Elias clotheslines Roman and pins him. Roman kicks out at two. Roman comes back with sheer power as he clotheslines Elias in the corner. Bo Dallas tries to interfere, but Roman throws him off the outside of the ring. Curtis Axel tries to distract Roman and Roman swings and misses as Axel jumps down. Elias gains off of the distraction and rolls Roman up. Kick out.

Back from commercial, Reigns is in a bad way. Soon he gains momentum and drive by’s on Elias. He superman Punches Bo Dallas and Spear’s Curtis Axel. Elias gains momentum again as he goes high flying with an elbow to the champion. Roman kicks out and Elias powerbomb’s Reigns. Reigns barely kicks out at two. Roman superman punches Elias and Elias kicks out. Elias tries a running knee, but Roman blocks it and sets up for a SPEAR TO ELIAS!

Your winner and STILL Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns!

After the match: Roman walks up the ramp celebrating his victory, when Samoa Joe ensues a vicious attack on Roman Reigns with the Cocina Clutch. It takes several referees and WWE personnel to get Joe off of Roman. Samoa Joe says that he is coming for the title. Here is what WWE.com had to say:

The Intercontinental Championship may have gone from The A-List to The Yard, but Roman Reigns isn’t about to let it sit idly in his trophy case. Agreeing with The Miz’s assertion that the Intercontinental Title was worthy of the biggest possible spotlight, The Big Dog kicked off his first Raw as champion with something of an open challenge, only to be confronted by The Miztourage. Left adrift after their leader was defrocked and sent to the shelf by a Shield Triple Powerbomb after Raw went off the air last week, Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel introduced a Superstar who was more than willing to answer The Big Dog’s call: Elias.

Consider Roman Reigns’ first week as Intercontinental Champion a success — with one big asterisk.

The win came in The Big Dog’s title defense against Elias, who put up a formidable fight in the biggest opportunity of the young Superstar’s career. Competing for his first title, Elias stuck to the ground-and-pound strategy that had brought him to the dance, and The Miztourage did their part at ringside, distracting Reigns as he pulled ahead and allowing his challenger to get back in the thick of things with a picturesque elbow drop.

Reigns tilted the contest back his way by reversing Drift Away into a roll-up attempt, and despite Elias countering one Spear with a knee to the face, The Big Dog’s second attempt at the move seconds later hit its mark and sent the champ home victorious.

As for the asterisk? Right as Reigns was making his exit, he turned to thank the WWE Universe once more and was bulldozed from behind by Samoa Joe, who trapped The Big Dog in the Coquina Clutch, delivering a stark reminder that the life of a fighting champion is a long, hard one with no end in sight.

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.

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.

It’s Shield night as WWE isn’t exactly being subtle with this one. Last week we saw the trio standing in the same room and basically saying they were getting back together, though the question is how long they’ll be able to keep this going. Your trivia for the night: the team debuted in Indianapolis, split in Indianapolis and seems to be reuniting in Indianapolis. I don’t know if WWE did that on purpose but well done if they did. Let’s get to it.

Reunited! For weeks, fans have wondered if The Shield would get back together. The Miz and his Miztourage have been making light on how destructive the Shield was. On last week’s Raw, all three members of The Shield had contact with Miz, Miztourage and The Bar (Cesaro and Sheamus). At the end of the show, the WWE Universe saw Roman Reigns sitting alone backstage and both Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose walk up. Can The Shield put aside past differences and unite as one unite? Here’s how WWE.com says it all went down.

They’re Bravo-Alpha-Charlie-Kilo. Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns didn’t just reunite in earnest for the first time in three years to crash “Miz TV,” they showed they haven’t lost a step, despite the lengthy layoff.

While The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus and Curtis Axel (Bo Dallas was recuperating) crowed over beating the brothers-in-arms down last week (The Bar and Axel received Mizzies for their assistance), The Hounds of Justice showed that Miz might have been off the mark when he insisted their time had passed them by. In fact, the three former WWE Champions responded to The A-Lister’s boasts by circling the ring and administering a beatdown straight out of The Shield’s greatest hits, laying out all four Superstars and sealing the reunion with a ring-shaking Triple Powerbomb to The Awesome One and a fist-bump over his prone body.

And, as it turns out, The Miz might have gotten even more than he bargained for, as Raw General Manager Kurt Angle decided to give the Intercontinental Champion the spotlight he craved by placing him and The Bar in a Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match against The Shield at WWE TLC. As Much as Miz seemed as though he couldn’t believe it, The Olympic Hero assured him: It’s true.

Braun Strowman’s monstrous tear through the roster continued at the expense of Matt Hardy, who had the unfortunate task of facing The Monster Among Men one-on-one, but The Gift of Destruction went from hunter to hunted in the blink of an eye when The Shield came knocking.

Hardy turned in a gritty, turn-back-the-clock effort against Strowman that saw him land a Twist of Fate, only Strowman to kick out at one, retorting with two chokeslams and a Running Powerslam for the win. After the match, Strowman looked primed to put Hardy through the LED screen a la Curt Hawkins, but he was quickly interrupted by The Hounds of Justice, who met him on the stage, overwhelmed the monster and plunged him through the announce table with an incredible Triple Powerbomb

But The Gift of Destruction’s fate will remain entwined with The Shield’s for the foreseeable future. Not only did Kurt Angle sanction Strowman vs. Reigns in a Steel Cage next week, but Ambrose’s offhanded remark that The Shield could take out four or five opponents at once were noted by The Miz, who recruited The Monster Among Men to be that very same fourth man at WWE TLC.

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?

THE PASSING OF THE TORCH! As the WWE Universe still tries to get over the passing of the torch between John Cena & Roman Reigns, The Miz has issues with Roman being called “The Guy” and “The Big Dog”. He invites Reigns onto ‘MizTV’ to get answers. What went down during the interview and will Roman Reigns hold on to the torch that was just bestowed upon him. Check out what happened when “The Big Dog” and the “A-lister” came face to face. Here is a full recap of what happened per WWE.com!

Roman Reigns beat John Cena last night at WWE No Mercy and announced on “Miz TV” that he’s looking for a fight with Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship, but The Miz wasn’t interested in talking about that. In fact, Miz quickly turned the focus of their much-hyped interview toward himself, reminding Reigns that Miz was the only one of the two with a title to his name after The Big Dog called him an “idiot” minutes into their sit-down.

Miz didn’t take that kindly, of course, and if the most head-turning of his subsequent insults was a schoolyard boast that The Miztourage could have taken The Shield back in the day, it was his insistence on waving his title in Reigns’ face that came back to haunt him when The Big Dog offered to fight him on the spot.

The Awesome One attempted to back out with an impressive array of excuses (“I have a suit on!”), though Raw General Manager Kurt Angle hit the scene to sanction a match tonight between the two, as well as a tag team match between the rest of The Miztourage and the makeshift squad of Matt Hardy & Jason Jordan.

Could The Miztourage have beaten The Shield? They certainly proved to be the difference maker when Roman Reigns took on The Miz by his lonesome, picking at The Big Dog behind the referee’s back and allowing the Intercontinental Champion to make a profound statement at Reigns’ expense — even if he didn’t necessarily walk away with the win.

In fact, Bo Dallas & Curtis Axel softened Reigns up for The Miz each time The Big Dog pulled into the lead, while Miz himself focused his efforts on Reigns’ banged-up lower back. A double Drive-By took out Dallas & Axel and finally left Miz open to a match-ending Spear, but The Miztourage returned moments later to utterly decimate Reigns with steel chairs and feed him into two Skull-Crushing Finales, the second on top of a chair. Miz kept the assault going for minutes on end, but the final insult came when the three A-listers mocked Reigns with the classic Shield fist bump to conclude a brutal display that, only a few years ago, you would have had to see to believe.

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.

After the match, Cena stands tall as we go to replays. Cena stands tall and helps Jordan to his feet for a show of respect. Cena hits the corner to pose but the music interrupts and out comes Roman Reigns. Back to commercial.

Back from the break and Reigns is in the ring with Cena. Some fans are chanting Cena’s name. Reigns gets booed as he says he has one question for Cena – if he’s as good as he says he is, why does it take a 16-time champ over 20 minutes to beat a rookie? Reigns says if Cena is as good as he says he is, he would’ve defeated Jordan right away. Reigns goes on and gets the “what!?” treatment from the crowd. Reigns calls Cena a lying, fake ass little bitch. Cena calls Reigns a Debbie Downer and says he’s disgusted by Reigns’ whole face. Cena says Reigns is doing the worst thing a guy like him could try and do right now – use his brain. Cena goes on and points out how Reigns came out with his zipper down. Reigns says he actually busted the zipper because he’s a big dog. Cena says he was just looking for Reigns’ balls but he has none. Cena talks about how Reigns is going to lose at No Mercy.

Cena says the only question Reigns will have after No Mercy is how did this happen. Cena says Reigns is a conceited, know-it-all golden boy that needs to be taught about respect. Cena gives props to guys like Jordan, Chad Gable and The Miz for putting in work each week. He respects that. Cena says he does not respect Reigns. Cena doesn’t respect how Reigns walks down here and calls Cena a fake bitch. The only person living a lie here is Reigns. Cena goes on and wonders if Reigns can see what’s going on here, or does he need to beat some sense into Reigns. Reigns says now they’re talking. He tells Cena to do it, bring it.
