He gets the crowd to chant that they don't want Cena on Raw. Meanwhile, the announcers are attempting to play up the magnitude of Cena and Reigns being together. This feels so forced and means nothing to anyone other than Vince McMahon. Flashpoint: Roman Reigns isn't over. 
...
Cena says that Roman Reigns is exactly who he was looking for. The Big Dog calls out Cena for "running his mouth" on Twitter and reminds the 16-time-World Champion that this is his yard. Roman Reigns and scripted verbiage go together like ice cream and moose urine.

Cena asks the crowd if they weren't expecting him, and they respond with the infamous duelling chants. John Cena says that he's back on Raw because he wants to stand face-to-face with a certain WWE Superstar. 

Just as he is about to finish his sentence, Roman Reigns comes out to the ring. You can literally hear crickets chirping when the "Big Dog" comes out to the ring. In case you needed more proof, this guy cannot be the top babyface of WWE
...
Kurt Angle is out next. It's a pity that the GMs of Raw and SmackDown Live are more over than the actual Superstars. Angle introduces John Cena — who is now a free agent. 
...
Just as we cut to commercial, the announce team says that Kurt Angle is bringing back a celebrated Superstar. Could it be John Cena?

The Big Cass vs. Enzo Amore — Brooklyn Street Fight
Enzo Amore comes out and cuts a promo where he makes Cass look like a villain for attending NYU. So, you're now a hell if you have an education, in the world of WWE? Amore continues to babble on and Cass looks at him in disbelief. He then promises to end this rivalry and brings out a shopping cart full of weapons. Amore then starts flinging the weapons at Cass as the latter makes a beeline for him. 

Cass manhandles Amore, throws him inside the ring and stalks his prey with a steel chair in hand. Surprisingly, he hands the chair over to Amore. However, the New Jersey native is flattened by a big boot before he can do anything of note. 
...
The Brooklyn Street Fight is up next.   
...
...
Just as Lesnar is about to leave the ring, Strowman comes out to interrupt. Looks like the main event of No Mercy is taking shape. The Monster Among Men wastes no time and picks Lesnar up for a chokeslam, but the Beast Incarnate reverses and goes for a clothesline. Big boot from Strowman!!!! The Monster Among Men follows up with two running powerslams and poses with the belt. 
...
The reigning Universal Champion is greeted with chants of "Suplex City" and he is just lapping it up. Paul Heyman tells the audience that Braun Strowman's assault on Lesnar was premeditated and reminds them that it was the first time that the former UFC standout had to be stretchered away from the ring. 

He then goes into full-blown babyface mode and pontificates about Lesnar overcoming adversity and annihilating his foes. He brings up the fact that Lesnar pinned Roman Reigns. Like that's not going to be brought up in the build up to WrestleMania 34. Heyman concludes by saying that there's no one in UFC or WWE history who can defeat Lesnar. This is a Superstar, ladies and gents. Pity that he has to get pinned by the charisma vacuum that is Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34.
