Monday Night Raw’s surprises kept on rolling and weren’t just limited to call-ups from NXT. Tonight, Jeff Hardy and Samoa Joe returned in New Orleans.
Seth Rollins was in the middle of celebrating his Intercontinental Championship win when he was interrupted by Finn Balor and the Miz. Miz and the Miztourage looked to take Finn and Rollins on in a 3-on-2 fight when the Charismatic Enigma’s music hit.
Jeff Hardy came down to even up the numbers, forcing Miz and his henchmen down. It was announced later in the night that Rollins, Balor, and Hardy would take on Miz, Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas in a 6-man tag match.
Later on in the night, Roman Reigns came out to talk about his loss to Lesnar, and how there’s a conspiracy between Lesnar and corporate. Reigns went to leave when a certain song interrupted the moment.
Samoa Joe came out to confront Reigns, telling the Big Dog that he can’t get the job done against Brock Lesnar. Joe went on to say that Reigns is all talk, and every time he loses, Lesnar’s bank account fills up more.
Joe finished by saying that, regardless of what happens at the Greatest Royal Rumble, he’ll be at Backlash to put Roman Reigns to sleep.
