Roman Reigns & Drew McIntyre Segment 

Drew McIntyre: You know, I would love to have said everything that I’ve said recently to your face. But as you mentioned, you’re not here anymore, so I’ll get straight to it. I don’t think you represent those titles the way they deserve to be represented. And you do not deserve to be champion.

Roman Reigns: I don’t deserve? I don’t deserve to be champion after everything that I just said, do you not understand?

Drew McIntyre: You don’t deserve, you heard me right. And I’ll tell you why. Let’s look at the past couple of years. You got The Wise Man working for you politically. You’ve got The Usos, The Bloodline, working for you physically, taking bullets for you. And sure, when you guys are all together, you’re The Bloodline. Oh, yeah, who can take down The Bloodline? Probably nobody because you’re in God Mode. But you’re just a man.

And right now, I can seem something different in your eyes when it’s just you and I, I see fear, I see concern. And you should be scared because there is not a man alive that Drew McIntyre cannot tear apart with his bare hands. Clash At The Castle, I am going to tear you apart, I am going to tear those titles from you. And you know what? We’re alone tonight. This is a unique opportunity since you’re actually in the building. You don’t have The Bloodline, how about a little fight in Montreal?

Reigns and McIntyre starts trading back and forth shots. McIntyre with an Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex. McIntyre goes for The Claymore, but Zayn takes the bullet for Reigns. Reigns drops McIntyre with The Superman Punch. Reigns goes for The Spear, but McIntyre counters with The Claymore. McIntyre poses with the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship to close the show.
