In this write-up, we will rate each segment in a range between +5 to -5.

Roman Reigns Promo: +5

Roman Reigns came out to confront Kurt Angle the moment Kurt said that Brock Lesnar was not present on WWE Raw. He questioned what would happen if he or any other star did not show up to work, saying that Lesnar was Vince’s Boy and would not be punished for what he did.

He then said that Vince McMahon had disrespected him, and walked to the back where Vince McMahon was sitting in the Production area, dragging out WWE’s backstage in a way that has not been done before. The two disappeared behind the door to talk about it.

After a while Roman came out and left without talking about anything, but then Vince came out and said that Brock was not his boy, or anyone’s ‘boy’ for that matter, as he was his own man. He promised that Brock would be there on Raw next week.

He, however, said that he reminded Roman of his place ad shut him up. He also announced that Roman was temporarily suspended.
