Reigns took the mic and asked Heyman what he calls this place. Heyman calls it the island of relevancy. Anyone that steps in the ring with Reigns becomes relevant.
Reigns said the analytics are right. Reigns talked about his cousin Jey Uso. Reigns said before the fans didn't even know which twin he was. Now Jey's a main eventer. He took out Daniel Bryan two weeks ago and took out Kevin Owens last week.
Reigns then talked about his Survivor Series opponent. Randy Orton. He praised Orton, but that doesn't mean he respects him.
Suddenly, Raw's Drew McIntyre's music hit, and he made his way to the ring. McIntrye was walking by and heard Reigns talking about Orton. McIntrye promised to win the title and take on Reigns.
McIntrye talked about the last time they were in the ring together. The last time they were in the ring together was at the Royal Rumble when McIntrye eliminated him to win the Rumble match. He then talked about defeating Brock Lesnar in 5 minutes at WrestleMania.
McIntrye pointed out that Reigns left the company after WrestleMania. McIntyre took over the company while Reigns was gone.
Reigns said he respects McIntrye, but he's back now. Reigns said he doesn't watch Raw. Heyman yelled, "You're not missing much." Reigns said nobody watches Raw because he's on SmackDown. Nobody cares about Mcintyre anymore because he's back. Mcintrye promised to defeat Orton and win the WWE Championship. Then he's going to the Survivor Series and defeat Reigns.
Jey Uso ran out and got in McIntrye's face. Uso noted he beat Bryan and Owens. He told McIntrye that this isn't Raw. Uso then challenged McIntyre to a match tonight. McIntrye went to respond, but Uso dropped the mic.
Reigns and Uso then left the ring without getting an answer.
This was a great opening segment. Everyone involved was excellent in their role.
In the back, Reigns was furious at Uso for making the match for later. Uso promised to take care of it.
Intercontinental Champion Sami Zayn defeated Apollo Crews
This was a bit of a disappointment considering who was involved. It wasn't much of a match and was kept short.
