Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar come face to face for the first time

Published Add your comment

As the aptly named Blizzard of 2015 hits the north-east of America, RAW was forced to be cancelled as it was set to take place in Connecticut.

RAW and Tuesday night's tapings of Smackdown which was set to take place in Boston, Massachusetts were both postponed in the wake of the blizzard.

Instead we were treated to a broadcast direct from WWE headquarters where we would see some of the biggest names in the studios.

Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Daniel Bryan would all show up and have their chance to speak about the burning issue.

With just 24 hours passed since the very poorly received Royal Rumble, all five men would speak about the events in Philadelphia and the future.

The show certainly won't go down as a classic but it certainly was important as we got to hear Seth Rollins respond to his heart braking loss at the Royal Rumble and we got to see the first encounter between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.

Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns

Each man held a one-on-one interview in the aftermath of the Royal Rumble and discussed their upcoming main event at WrestleMania XXXI.

Lesnar's aired first with him confirming the rumours that he suffered a broken rib at the Royal Rumble but as always he revelled in his victory.

When he was asked about his thoughts on Roman Reigns, he was quite clear.

"Who? Roman Reigns, I'm happy for him, I'm happy for Roman, good for him, I hope he's up for the challenge, cause I am."

Reigns shared Lesnar's sentiment about their upcoming match at WrestleMania.

"I'm looking forward to meeting Brock Lesnar in the main event of WrestleMania."

The two would come face to face to end the show with Paul Heyman replacing Michael Cole as lead interviewer and starting by showing his respect for Reigns and his family's accomplishments in the WWE.

Reigns would turn his attentions to Lesnar and inform him that he will beat him and take the title off of him.

The interview would end with both men shaking hands and Lesnar telling Reigns he doesn't respect, only to be told "you will".

Seth Rollins

The first interview featured on the show came from Mr Money in the Bank Seth Rollins who was reflecting on his performance at the Royal Rumble.

Rollins claimed that he may have underestimated Brock Lesnar but also said that his performance showed he deserved to be in the title match.

Daniel Bryan

The leader of the Yes movement and in many fans opinions the reason why the fans were so unhappy with the Royal Rumble match on Sunday sat down to reflect on what happened to him.

Bryan claimed that he was disappointed to see Roman Reigns win, but not because he is Roman Reigns but because it wasn't himself who won.

When looking back on his own performance in the match, Bryan summed it up quite easily.

"I had an opportunity and didn't take it. Quite honestly, I failed."

Fast Lane

Two huge announcements were made with regards the next Pay-Per-View coming up in February called Fastlane.

It was announced that after an altercation on the Royal Rumble fall-out show, Rusev and John Cena will go head to head.

The two had been expected to meet at WrestleMania but that match may have been moved forward in light of the events on Sunday night.

Also announced were the intentions of COO Triple H who will go to Fastlane and call out the Vigilante Sting.
