• Future Feud For Roman Reigns Kicking Off On Tonight’s RAW
At Saturday’s WWE Live Event in Canada, Roman Reigns faced AJ Styles after 6 years and defeated him to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
WWE usually tests their future programs at Live Events first and it looks like that’s what happened here.
After Roman gave Sami Zayn the “Honorary Uce” T-Shirt on Friday’s SmackDown, Styles tweeted:
“Man, people will do anything for a T-shirt these days… #pathetic”
This led to Sami replying:
“Roman Reigns GIFTED me the HONORARY UCE T-shirt (now available at @WWEShop & selling like crazy, from what I hear)
Disrespect the shirt = disrespect The Bloodline. Might just come to RAW on Monday to sort this out.
Oh, and I don’t travel alone.
Pack your bags uce. @WWESoloSikoa”
AJ then accepted Sami’s challenge:
“Sami, you have me shaking. Shaking in the boots that have garnered me the respect of the entire wrestling world.
Bring the kid.
Bring your dumb shirt… sorry your dumb gift shirt.
See you on Monday at #WWERaw.”
WWE has made Styles vs. Zayn official for tonight’s RAW, and this is expected to lead to a Reigns vs. Styles program down the line.
Below are the matches that have been announced for tonight’s RAW:
– Matt Riddle vs. Damian Priest
– Kevin Owens & Johnny Gargano vs. Alpha Academy (Chad Gable & Otis)
– AJ Styles vs. Sami Zayn (with Solo Sikoa)
– RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion IYO SKY
