Backstage: Tom Phillips is in the interview area with Seth Rollins. We take a look at last week’s Raw. Seth is asked if that is the same fate for Reigns tonight. Seth says that he won’t take anything away from Roman Reigns. He is one of the most naturally gifted superstars, but he is nothing without him. Reigns was talking earlier about pummeling Rollins. Those are the comments of a Neanderthal. He says that Reigns walks on his knuckles and that is why he will have bloody knuckles. He is part gorilla, part Samoan, and part rhinoceros. A rhinoceros is a tough animal, but it is not that smart. It is brains over brawn every time. He made Roman Reigns and is responsible for everything he accomplished in the WWE. Seth says that he is the future WWE Champion. He is the future of the WWE, not Roman Reigns.
