RAW General Manager Mick Foley had implored Rollins not to interfere and even promised serious consequences if he did so.

Rollins being the hot head he is however, he didn't listen and made his presence known by attacking the champion.

This drew Foley out from the back as he had Rollins escorted from the building before he re-started the match between Reigns and Owens after the initial disqualification.

Unfortunately for Reigns, all Foley did was give way to someone else to interject themselves into the match.

The United States Champion Rusev was the man who would come down to the ring and event hough he took a Superman Punch from Reigns, he did what he wanted.

Providing the distraction for Owens to capitalise on and pin Reigns, Rusev has kept the man who ruined his wedding out of the main event at Clash of Champions.

Rusev hasn't been on RAW for two weeks and had even claimed that he was on a month long honeymoon with his new wife Lana.

It was somewhat of a shock to see the Bulgarian Brute get involved in tonight's main event and he now could have set up a Clash of Champions date with Reigns.

The two were supposed to go one on one back at SummerSlam last month but what was supposed to be a match turned into an all out brawl where Reigns assaulted Rusev.
