Stephanie McMahon & Roman Reigns Kick Off RAW
The post-TLC edition of RAW opens with a lengthy video package focusing on Roman Reigns snapping and attacking Triple H at last night’s PPV. From there, Stephanie McMahon’s music hits and she makes her way down to the ring as the announcers welcome us to the show and talk more about Reigns’ attack of HHH last night.
Stephanie said powerful women are still viewed as cold and ruthless. She said she’s just like the fans if you take away the money and the education. She spoke about not knowing what to tell her children when their father was spitting up blood in the hospital all night. Stephanie said Reigns left her no choice.
Roman Reigns’ music interrupted Stephanie and he made his way through the crowd and to the ring while Cole questioned whether this would be the last time we see him on Raw. Cole and JBL agreed that Reigns crossed the line by attacking “the boss.” After a staredown, Reigns said he is a father and today and his daughter’s birthday. He looked into the camera and told his daughter that he loves her and he can’t wait to see her. Reigns then said he doesn’t feel bad about kicking Triple H’s ass.
Stephanie asked Reigns how it would feel for his wife to look into his girl’s eyes and explain a beating that he took. Stephanie told him he better have something sharp to say because she’s ready. Reigns said he’s a little short on time and said if she is going to fire him, “then fire me, please.” Stephanie told Reigns to accept responsibility for his loss. She called him a failure and a disgrace. Reigns laughed off the idea of Stephanie calling him a disgrace. Reigns said the entire McMahon family is a disgrace. The fans chanted “Yes!”
Stephanie slapped Reigns, who smiled at her. She slapped him again and he smiled. Stephanie slapped Reigns repeatedly. He didn’t smile. Stephanie said “just one more thing.” She slapped him again. Stephanie said she’s not going to fire Reigns because her husband asked her not to, but she said there’s someone on his way to the the building who just might – Vincent Kennedy McMahon…
