Quote RAW GM Kurt Angle comes down to the ring to kick off this week's show. He's joined by Constable Baron Corbin. Angle begins speaking, but he's quickly interrupted by Roman Reigns. Reigns steps in the ring and confronts Kurt, but then Bobby Lashley interrupts quickly next. Lashley tells Reigns he had his chance to beat Brock for three years, and failed, and now it's Lashley's turn for a chance. Lashley tells Reigns to move on, and Reigns talks about Lashley moving on from WWE and taking his ball and going home. Reigns says Lashley didn't make much of an impact in the MMA world, while Reigns has been making an impact in WWE. Lashley says he's the only one here who has the legit tools for beat Brock, and he'll beat anyone else Kurt puts in front of him, including Reigns. Kurt says Brock Lesnar pulled out of their agreement to determine a #1 contender at Extreme Rules, and Lashley and Reigns aren't happy. Reigns says Lesnar doesn't respect anyone in WWE or the fans. Lashley says if Lesnar had someone legit to face he might be around more, instead of having to face Reigns every time. Lashley says Lesnar is tired of seeing Reigns' face just like all the fans are. Reigns says he and Lashley should fight right now, but Kurt stops them and tells them he'll consider booking a match between them for Extreme Rules. The Revival interrupts next and they take issue with Reigns and Lashley. Corbin says they should get it on right now, and Angle calls for a ref. We've got a tag match up next.

- Bobby Lashley & Roman Reigns vs. The Revival: The Revival trades frequent tags early on and controls the opening moments of this one. Lashley tags in Reigns and Reigns starts cleaning house and turning it around. Reigns hits a series of clotheslines on Dawson in the corner and drops him. Reigns looks for a superman punch but Wilder pulls Dawson outside to safety. Reigns runs around the ring and hits the Drive By on Wilder outside. Back in the ring, Dawson turns it around and starts beating on Reigns on the apron. Back in the ring, Wilder tags in and continues the offense on Reigns. Reigns comes back with a shot in the corner and a Samoan Drop. Lashley gets the hot tag and starts cleaning house with belly to belly suplexes. Lashley hits a stalling vertical suplex on Wilder. Reigns tags himself in and a miscommunication leads to Lashley getting knocked out to ringside and Wilder rolls up Reigns for the three count out of nowhere.

Winners: The Revival

- Lashley gets in Reigns' face after the match and he isn't happy about the miscommunication that lead to the finish.

Seeing Reigns pinned by a tag team jobber with a roll up is going to walk the OMG moment of the year.
 
Loved the mic work from the pair of them. Both showing great intensity, making it easy to buy into what they were saying.
 
As expected Bobby had the majority of the support and showed how much he's improved on the mic due to his stint with Impact.

People don't want to see Roman vs Brock again I am all for seeing Lashley vs Lesnar but this could be done without the title involved.

I'm looking forward to seeing reigns vs Lashley that will be a good match.

I hope the rumours of Brock skipping Summerslam are untrue and that this is the beginning of Lashley earning a shot at Lesnar at Summerslam.

I know people are crapping on Lashley but the guy has polished up his whole all round act a ton during his time with TNA and yes while he’s not the best guy on the mic there are ways round that and he’s capable of a short intense promo at least which is a good fit for his character anyway.

Lashley vs Lesnar is money and with the subtle hints that have already been dropped on tv about this match happening I think it’s a real possibility and a far more appealing scenario than Reigns vs Lesnar again.

On a more on topic note Reigns vs Lashley should be solid too and I’m looking forward to it.

Decent pull apart brawl this week although at this point this formula of having other wrestlers desperately trying to keep two guys apart is tired, but it’s still effective giving a small taste of things to come and wetting the fans appetite for the match to come.

I’ve enjoyed the build up here, they’ve built a good rivalry based on two guys competing to be the best and making it personal. This has a big fight feel and I’m looking forward to the match.

Have to disagree. It's always terrible when we have to believe a shitload of roster guys can't keep two guys apart.
 
Quote This week's broadcast opens up with a video package looking at Roman Reigns and his feud with Bobby Lashley.

- Roman Reigns is shown backstage walking through the hallways of the TD Garden. Bobby Lashley steps in front of Reigns, and asks where he's going. Reigns says he's going to ring, and Lashley tells him he better be going out there to call out Lashley, because Lashley is ready to tear him apart. Lashley steps aside and Reigns keeps walking to the gorilla position.

- Reigns' music hits in the arena and the Big Dog comes out to the ring. Reigns gets on the mic and says he's never had anyone stare him in the face and ask to be called out, so now he's curious what Bob can do. Reigns calls out Bobby Lashley to get his ass down to the ring, and Lashley makes his way out. Lashley steps in the ring and stands in front of Reigns, but Kurt Angle comes out to the stage and tells them to save it for this Sunday at Extreme Rules. Baron Corbin is out on the stage with Angle. Lashley and Reigns ignore Angle's orders, and they start fighting back and forth in the ring. Part of the RAW locker room, including Corbin, runs down to the ring to separate the two. Lashley and Reigns continue fighting as the locker room drags them apart. Lashley breaks free and attacks Reigns as the crowd pops. Lashley appears to get the upper hand and he kicks Reigns out of the ring. More members of the RAW roster come out to pull them apart. Lashley gets out of the ring and still tries to get at Reigns as the other wrestlers hold them apart. Lashley breaks free again and clotheslines Reigns down on the floor. Lashley throws Reigns in the ring and then the other wrestlers haul Lashley back. Reigns runs the ropes in the ring and hits a suicide dive onto Lashley and the group of wrestlers holding him back. Reigns finally retreats up the ramp, past Kurt Angle on the stage, and he heads backstage. Reigns changes his mind at the last second though, and sprints back down the ramp to fight more with Lashley. Reigns and Lashley fight on the ramp as the other wrestlers continue to try to pull them apart. Reigns finally heads to the back as other wrestlers hold back Lashley.

Lashley has been great in this fued. He's shown exactly why he's been brought back to the company.

Roman on the otherhand always seems to come across as arrogant, big headed and some might say heelish.

I quite like the opening segment this week.

No bullshit - just a call out and then a brawl.

Yes the brawl may have went on too long and there didnt really need to be 65 superstars to pull them apart but it served its purpose and its helping build up the hate between the 2 and leading nicely to the match at ER

They always go overboard with the number of jobbers they use to try and separate the two stars, it’s a little unrealistic sure but it’s effective and the no nonsense booking of this brawl was decent.

What’s good about this feud is how it’s anyones guess, I really don’t know who’s going to win, as a fan of Lashley I would like to see him win. I just hope the winner of this match then gets Lesnar at Summerslam and I really hope they don’t go with a screwy non finish there needs to be a decisive winner here.

This is make or break for Lashley, we all know how the fans feel about Roman and no amount of clever booking tactics from Vince is going to change that, Lashley however could really cement his status as a top guy here with the fans. He’s shown improvement with his promos lately too proving he can do a short intense promo effectively so the way to book Lashley is definitely as a intense destroyer.

I haven't seen any improvement at all from Lashley. His promos are wooden and his actual wrestling is slow and dull. The only reason he's gaining in popularity is because he's beating up the top heel.

I'm just basing on crowd reaction. Whenever someone beats up Roman crowds are hot and he's getting a bigger pop when he comes out.

If he loses this match he's in real trouble though; would be a waste of a return because he'd have gained nothing really.
