Roman Reigns, The Usos and RK-BRO Segment 

Roman Reigns: Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Acknowledge Me. Now, we’ve been doing this for a minute. Y’all know the deal. We smash ’em on Sunday and then we come out the next Friday and tell y’all who’s next. You know what I’m saying? I smashed John Cena, came out the next Friday and told y’all what’s next. Smashed Brock Lesnar, came out the next Friday and told y’all what’s next.

But you see, this Friday’s a little different. Last Sunday, we smashed RK-BRO and Drew McIntyre. And Wise Man, there ain’t nobody next. We done smashed ’em all. Everybody’s terrified of me. They don’t want to step up. Don’t nobody want to step up to the mountain here. The Tribal Chief is untouchable. But you see, this is where things get interesting. The Usos, my cousins, my blood, they might have somebody next because there’s a challenge on the table for these boys. And the question is, what are they going to do about it?

– Before Jimmy Uso could speak, RK-BRO made their way down to the ring.

Randy Orton: I see you smiling, Roman, but you ain’t smashed John Cena. John Cena is ten times the superstar you will ever be. Believe That.

Matt Riddle: And you know what I like to do before I go to bed. I like to turn on the laptop, turn the lights off, set the mood, then I reach over into my nightstand. Now, hold on, Randy, get your mind out of the gutter. Dude, but I go back and watch old matches. And last night, before I fell asleep, I was watching our match from WrestleMania Backlash where we lost. And I was thinking, we need to make that title unification title match happen. What does everybody here think about that Unification Title Match, bro?

Randy Orton: Now, Jimmy, Jey, I know between the two of you, both of you combined, you have one brain. So I’m going to say this real slow so you understand, okay? Here we go. Riddle and I want a tag-team title match. We want that match because we’re going to take your set of titles and then we’re going to have both sets of titles. And once we have both sets of titles, then we’re going to combine those both sets of titles and have one set of titles and we’re going to call those titles the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships. Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth? I just noticed I’m way taller than you, by the way. What do you say?

Jimmy Uso: Yo, you want an answer? We accept.

Jey Uso: Yeah, we accept. Just not tonight, though. Not tonight. Next week, though. Next week, Friday, it’s on. And then, and then we’ll be new Unified WWE Tag Team Champions.

Jimmy Uso: And check this out, RK-BRO, there’s going to be two titles right here (Around His Shoulders), two titles right there (Around Jey’s Shoulders), and two titles right here (Roman puts both his titles up in the air)

Riddle drops Reigns with The Pump Knee Strike to close the show.
