Samoa Joe talked trash about Roman Reigns’ Family, Reigns defeated Joe
Samoa Joe wasn’t happy about the RAW Reunion special. He said these shows are a plague to WWE. Joe said that instead of his show of violence tonight in the ring; we got The Usos with their daddy. They spat limericks at John Cena. He called it embarrassing. However, it surprised Joe they didn’t do more pandering, more dancing and passed out Stinkfaces. The Big Dog interrupted and took his time getting to the squared circle. They stared each other down. Reigns said if Joe has something to say about his family; then say it. Joe said he’s already said it. Reigns said Joe is from the same island, so he knows what happens next. Reigns stepped to him. Joe did know, but before they got into this, Joe swung a cheap shot but Reigns fought him off. He went for the eyes and drove Reigns into the ring post, sending him out. Joe followed Reigns to the floor and launched him into the barrier. He hit strikes and a headbutt. Fans booed as he walked away. Reigns apologized to the fans and said not all Samoans are cowards. Joe stopped on the ramp and said we’re about to see a Samoan get put out permanently tonight. He asked Reigns if he wants the match, and Reigns did. Joe said he’d got it. Joe tossed the mic and headed back to the ringside area. Thus, a referee entered the squared circle.
