Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Kevin Owens, Jey Uso, and Adam Pearce Segment 

Kevin Owens: Hey, Roman. Roman, I’ve been waiting for this all week, I am not waiting one minute longer. Get out here. Get out here, come on, let’s do this. Oh, you’re not ready yet, that’s fine because there’s actually something I want to address. Roman, last week, you had a message to send to my family and I want you to know, I heard that message loud and clear. And you’ll be glad to know that, I had a talk with my family this week, I did. But what happened is I told them not to watch our match at TLC, under any circumstance. But, Roman, that’s not because I’m afraid of what they’ll think of what you do to me, it’s because I’m afraid of what my family will think and how they will look at me after they see what I do to you on Sunday.

Come on, Roman, you’re still not ready? Fine, I got more. You know, speaking of what our kids might think, Roman, a few weeks ago, I heard you tell Jey Uso that you care how your sons look at you. But, Roman, I’ve got some bad news for you because, if your kids judge you from your actions of the past few weeks, they already know that their dad is nothing but a hypocrite. Because you call yourself, The Head Of The Table, but last week, you jumped me from behind, you used your own family members as pawns, and that is absolutely pathetic. Roman, every single time you look in the mirror, you know you’re not the head of the table, you’re a coward.

Paul Heyman: I don’t care, put me on the screen. Just put me on the screen or something, will ya? Kevin, stop already. Oh, we’re gonna go through this dance again that Roman Reigns doesn’t come out on your time, he comes out on his own time, you’ve heard this before. You know, Kevin, I am here to confess my sins, I made a mistake about you. Last week on Talking Smack, I said that you need to marinate in the mindset of being mutilated because, Kevin, I thought you’re a masochist.

To come back this week after what Roman Reigns did to you last week, and you’re back for more, you must be a masochist, at least that’s what I thought, which is fine because I assure you, Roman Reigns is a sadist, especially when it comes to putting a beating down on you. But, you see, that’s where I’ve gone wrong, Kevin. You’re not a masochist, you’re a martyr, you’re willing to pay any sacrifice for the cause of being the Universal Champion, that makes a very dangerous competitor, 24/7, not just at TLC, which means mutilation won’t stop you, Kevin. So, you have to be eliminated, you have to be taken out, eradicated.

Kevin Owens: You know what, Paul, keep dreaming cause none of those things are gonna happen. You know, I’ve had enough of your BS, I can’t listen to one more word coming out of your stupid face. Roman Reigns won’t come find me, I’ll go come find him.

Adam Pearce: Don’t do this. I’ve known you for a long time. Kevin, for crying out loud, TLC is this Sunday, please, just think about this.

Roman Reigns:  KO, I don’t want to hurt you, I don’t want to hurt your family. But you’re running around here and you’re telling the whole that I’m a bad guy. You see, I’m not a bad guy, I’m just doing the things that you have to do to be the guy. It’s something you just don’t understand, it’s above your pay grade, it’s beyond the level that you’re at. Stay in your lane. As a matter of fact, I’m gonna show you that I’m a good guy, I’m gonna give you the same chance, I’m gonna give you the same opportunity that I gave my own flesh and blood, acknowledge me, acknowledge as your tribal chief, acknowledge me as the head of your family table, and then we’re all good. But if you don’t, if you just can’t, I’m gonna end you. You’re not gonna even make it to TLC on Sunday, hell, you won’t even make it out of here, tonight. So get your ass down here, apologize and tell me the words that I want to hear.
