Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring. Joe greets the crowd and says he’s here to point out a vile atrocity here in WWE. Tonight we come together in celebration for the RAW Reunion. We celebrate the longest running episodic television series going today. However shows like RAW Reunion are a plague to the WWE. Shows like RAW Reunion lets the WWE Universe put on their rose colored glasses to indulge their ridiculous addiction to nostalgia. Tonight they could have seen him in the ring doing what he does best by painting in brutality and sculpting in violence. Instead you got The Usos and their daddy spitting limericks at John Cena. It’s embarrassing.
Roman Reigns’ music hits, and he makes his way to the ring to a nice reception. Reigns says if Joe has something to say about his family, then he can say it. Joe says he wants to make it abundantly clear. Joe says doesn’t have anything to say about Reigns’ family. He already said it. Reigns says Joe is from the same island so he knows what happens next.

Paul Heyman is backstage and says his name is Seth Rollins’ dose of reality. Heyman says Rollins sees himself in the mirror while Lesnar sees the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion. Before Rollins says anything, Heyman reminds him that Rollins did the exact same thing with Money in the Bank to Lesnar. Rollins says he did and it took Lesnar four years to return the favor. Heyman rushes out to the stage, but Rollins tells him to keep quiet because he wants to stomp Heyman’s head through the ramp. Rollins counts down, and Heyman runs off.
Rollins says for the past 20 years, Heyman has built up Lesnar as a beast and a conqueror. That’s not true. Lesnar is a man and any man can lose. At SummerSlam, he’ll face Lesnar for the Universal Championship and Lesnar will lose. As for tonight, he prepares for matches by facing the best. Tonight, he goes one-on-one with AJ Styles and will burn it down.
Backstage: Sami Zayn, Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle
Charly Caruso is backstage with the legends, including Brooke Hogan. Sami Zayn walks up and says these people aren’t legends. They’re people that happened to be there at the time.

But “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase stops her. DiBiase says he’ll buy the title from her. DiBiase gives her some cash, and he buys the championship. DiBiase is the WWE 24/7 Champion.

They start brawling until referees pull them apart.
