Last night on RAW we saw Seth Rollins follow up his surprise Extreme Rules return to call out both the WWE Universe and Roman Reigns.
That was followed by Shane McMahon, in his role as RAW General Manager, stepping in to set up a World Heavyweight Title match between the former stable mates at the upcoming Money in the Bank pay-per-view.
The show ended, though, with Kevin Owens defeating AJ Styles to put himself in the MITB match itself and, potentially, get an opportunity to go up against either Rollins or Reigns in the future. That's why two fan videos from the event capturing the moments after RAW went off air make particularly interesting viewing.

According to Wrestling Inc., after he had secured his victory over The Phenomenal One and the TV broadcast had ended, Owens stayed put in the squared circle to cut a promo in which he laid out his plans to win the Money in the Bank match and go on to get his hands on the World Heavyweight Title.
As you can see in the first fan video below, that promo included mocking the WWE Universe's excitement about Rollins' return:
As Owens was busy laying into both Rollins and Roman Reigns, the latter apparently took offense and returned to the ring to confront him. The below video shows the two clashing with The Big Dog ultimately coming out on top after landing a Superman punch and spear combo.
For once, the reaction to Reigns' finisher appeared to be more cheers than boos.
The post-broadcast segment adds to the feeling, made clear during RAW itself, that the WWE are persisting with Reigns as the babyface battling the roster's biggest heels.
Owens remains one of the best heels in the business right now and is being used to ramp up the tension surrounding the title picture. Having him laid out prone by Reigns after a confrontational promo is the WWE doing their best to build the ex-Shield member's reputation.
As for Rollins, many had believed his return would usher in a babyface run.
Instead, as made clear by his interaction with the WWE crowd and Reigns last night, he looks set to continue his heel persona, at least until Money in the Bank.
It will be interesting to see whether either Owens or Rollins are able to wrestle away the World Heavyweight Title from Reigns in the upcoming months.
WWE fans: Who should come out on top; Rollins or Reigns? Or even Owens? Have your say in the comments below...
