IN RING SEGMENT
Roman Reigns comes out as the first participant in the gauntlet match. Charly Caruso gets on the mic to ask him about tonight’s matchup and him entering the match first. He says that he’s not as worried about tonight’s match as much as he is about Sunday’s Elimination Chamber match. He says that he is going to go against world class athletes, but none of them can stand up to and beat Brock Lesnar. The crowd boos, and he says that if they don’t believe him, go back and watch his match at WrestleMania where he faced off against Lesnar. He says he would’ve one if someone hadn’t interfered.
Out comes Seth Rollins, the man who interfered in that match and won the WWE Championship, and he is the second man in the Gauntlet match.
