#2. To build towards an anti-authority feud.

We might see another anti-authority feud involving Roman Reigns.

The spokes on the wheel have been turning for a while for a Reigns vs. Authority feud.

Roman Reigns made his move to SmackDown Live by attacking the Chairman of WWE, Vince McMahon. Conveniently, a few weeks ago, Shane McMahon turned heel on The Miz after losing the SmackDown Tag Team Championship to Jimmy and Jey Uso, making him a perfect candidate to align with Vince and represent the authority figure on TV

On the latest episode of SmackDown Live, WWE teased an altercation between Shane and Reigns, before which Elias attacked Reigns from behind. The Elias feud might be a stepping stone for Reigns before he takes on another version of The Authority in the coming weeks - most probably at SummerSlam 2019.

WWE has been repeating the Authority angle for far too long and would be hoping that at least this one delivers.
