5 reasons Roman Reigns showed up to Monday Night Raw
The Big Dog made his triumphant return to Monday Night Raw only one week after being drafted to Smackdown Live and wasted no time telling Vince McMahon that he would do what he wanted when he wanted. He also made it clear that he took orders from The WWE Universe now, which was also a nice surprise.
It also marked the first of what would become many interruptions during the opening segment on Monday Night Raw, thus causing McMahon to have the epiphany to start allowing superstars to shift brands at will. If nothing else, the segment was bizarre, to say the least, lagged at times and made little sense, but it got everything done that it set out to.
With that being said, everything happens for a reason and here are five for Roman Reigns' special appearance on Raw Monday Night. As always, let us know your thoughts on Reign's return to Raw in the comments below and tell us if you think it actually helped his character at all.
#5 Create an anything can happen atmosphere
Whether you thought the segment was a trainwreck or a masterful work of genius, you have to admit that WWE did everything it could to create an anything can happen atmosphere. In fact, between Mcmahon and Reigns having a staredown, Daniel Bryan showing up and Kingston appearing as well, it's safe to say that WWE spared no expense on this one.
With that being said and WWE needing something interesting to start off Monday Night Raw with this week, this was probably the base case scenario for them from all angles. Beyond that, the opening segment also set the stage for what would become one of the most bizarrely spectacular nights in Raw history.
