Seth Rollins & Bray Wyatt Segment

Last night was a hell of a night, but they have a lot to unpack because the night didn’t start out that great. Seth Rollins lost the Raw Tag Titles. It doesn’t matter whose fault it was because they lost as a team and Rollins had to prepare for their Universal Title Match. There’s something that you might not know about Braun Strowman. He is very big and he is very strong. Strowman gave him the fight of his life. When push came to shove, Rollins put Strowman down with three stomps. That wasn’t enough and he had to go into his bag of trick hence the return of The Pedigree, thanks Triple H ! A fourth stomp finally put Strowman away.

Rollins is happy that their rematch isn’t happening any time soon. He didn’t have time to celebrate before he was cloaked in darkness and attacked by something that can only be described as, Yowie Wowie. Rollins saw the face of The Fiend. Yowie Wowie indeed.In less than three weeks, Rollins gets to face Bray Wyatt inside Helli in a Cell. Ladies and gentlemen we have a brand new episode of The Firefly Fun House. Bray says hello to the fireflies.

Hey everybody it’s Bray’s future best friend, the Universal Champion Seth Rollins. Bray is glad that Rollins is okay. Rollins says that Bray has issues. Rambling Rabbit tells Rollins to run away. There is no need for name calling. It’s Poppycock, but it is fine. Mistakes have been made and you have made many mistakes and people have forgiven you. Friends forgive, but The Fiend never forgets. Maybe that’s why he said hello at Clash of Champions. Who knows? He might have more to say tonight. Bray stares a hole through Rollins. See you in hell.
