John Cena & Roman Reigns In-Ring Promo
Reigns has one question for Cena. Why does it take a 16 time champ more than 20 minutes to beat a rookie? Cena strung it along and let Jordan believe in himself tehn crushed him. Either that, or you lied last week. Cena is a lying fake ass bitch? Cena calls Reigns a debbie downer. Cena doesn’t like Reigns face. Reigns is doing the worst thing impossible. He’s trying to use his brain and that’s not his strong suit. Has Cena lost a step? Is he stringing his opponents along so he can adapt? Cena points out that Roman’s zipper is down. Reigns says that the Big Dog Broke It.
Cena says that Reigns has no balls. Reigns will get the answers to his questions at No Mercy. He’s going to lose to a guy who lost a step or a guy who has been stringing him along for years. Allowing Reigns to make mistake after mistake waiting for the moment to chop your ass down to size. The only question Reigns will have after No Mercy is, how did this happen? Reigns is a conceited golden boy who needs to be shown respect.
Jason Jordan and Chad Gable have to scratch for everything. Even the Miz scratches every week and Cena respects that. Cena doesn’t respect Reigns. Reigns calls Cena a fake ass bitch? Reigns is running a false life. The WWE Universe doesn’t agree with the claims that this ring is Reigns yard or he’s the top guy. If we are talking about questions, is there any room in that clouded, protected, and conceited brain to see what is going on around here? Does he have to beat some common sense into him? Does Omaha want to see Cena whoop Reigns ass. This is Cena’s moment to back up his big mouth. Cena is all talk and that’s why he doesn’t respect him.

Finn Balor & Bray Wyatt In-Ring Promo
Omaha, Nebraska, this is Balor Club. Too sweet. The NXT & Universal Title used to look real good around his waist. The Intercontinental Title would have looked good around this waist if it weren’t for Bray Wyatt. When Bray appeared in the battle royal, it cost him the opportunity to challenge the Miz.

Bray decided he wanted to shake things up and he put his weapon down and he started to use his hands, just his hands. His hands became judge, jury, and executioner. Bray showed those fish, no mercy. When he had the chance to end that pathetic existence, he made the choice and that choice defined him.
Bray knew what his purpose was. Balor was victorious at SummerSlam. The Demon is Balor’s bow and arrow. Bray wants Balor to face him man to man and show him no mercy. Bray tells Balor to define his legacy. Balor made his choice, he’s Finn Balor. Here lies the confident hero they all dream of becoming. The question remains, can a mere mortal topple a god or will Balor just be like the others, running around like a scared rabbit? Bray tells Balor to run.
