Joe has seen the Shield up close and he’s not impressed. He’s not impressed at the man whose leg he snapped on his first night, Seth Rollins. There’s a man who has done everything in his power to avoid him, the human cockroach Dean Ambrose. Joe talks about constantly putting Roman Reigns to sleep. He came out to finish what he started with Roman Reigns. Joe doesn’t want the lap dogs, he wants Reigns.
