The last episode of Monday Night Raw saw the presence, after two years of absence, of the Tribal Chief of the company Roman Reigns, total star of the WWE. The wrestler for the occasion returned to the red brand and was the protagonist of two matches during the show.
Roman Reigns opened the dance by participating with the Usos in a Tag Team Match against the New Day, a challenge that saw his victory thanks to the decisive intervention of a wild Bobby Lashley. The former Raw champion first sanctioned the Tribal Chief's victory and, at the end of the match, hit Roman Reigns with a Spear.
During the episode the Raw Main Event was then sanctioned, a Triple Threat Match between Roman Reigns, Bobby Lashley and the new Monday Night Raw champion Big E.
Backstage News on Roman Reigns
Last year at Survivor Series, Roman Reigns defeated the then WWE Champion Drew McIntyre in a stellar main event.
Judging by the pattern over the last few years, it's likely that there will be another Champion vs Champion match at this year's event. The current WWE Champion Big E could face the Universal Champion at the upcoming pay-per-view.
The Head of the Table recently appeared on RAW where he featured in two matches and emerged victorious in both, proving that he is the man to beat. During the last episode of Wrestling Radio, the well-known colleague Dave Meltzer explained the reason for this choice.
Initially, Roman Reigns had to play only one match on Raw, the duo match against the New Day. This Triple Threat Match had already been played on Sunday in the Supershow and given the excellent results and the good feedback from the public, it was decided to continue on this trend and repeat the match.
Here are the words about it from Dave Meltzer: "What was known was that Six Tag Team Match was supposed to be the Main Event of the show, then what happened on the weekend shows in North Charleston and Nottingham made it decided for this choice.
Vince McMahon had the last word and at noon on Monday before the show, there was this shift and the Main Event became the opening match. The goal was to keep the largest number of plays and thus solve one of the most important problems of the last week."
After being pinned on RAW, Lashley also sent out a warning to Roman Reigns. There are reports suggesting Reigns will be defending his Universal Championship against Drew McIntyre on the October 1st edition of SmackDown, which is Night One of the draft.
