The heart of the matter

"It's like a career [highlight] week to be honest. Wednesday night at the ESPYs alone, that made the week special by itself. To be able to receive the first WWE ESPY ever, to have the best moment of the year, to be able to present the best coach of the year award was excellent. And then we just keep moving on. To get a few workouts in with The Rock, and spitball ideas, and just pick his brain on the next level, and expanding, and progression, and life in general."

Reigns praised The Undertaker, and how excited it was to team up with "The Deadman" and to see The Undertaker of old make his return at Extreme Rules.

"To really just put a cap on the week, there's nothing better than going out there with The Deadman. There's nothing better than going out there and feeling an arena full of wrestling/sports entertainment fans giving that full, undivided respect. When you're out there with a legend, someone who is still at the top of his game - I mean, he showed it tonight. He came in just flying around as the old Deadman that we all know. [He was] taking peoples' heads off, walking the ropes, scooping people up, tombstone piledrivers. I mean, it was a blessing to be out there and just experience that moment with him."

What's next?

Roman Reigns is expected to be a part of tonight's edition of Monday Night RAW. No word yet on The Undertaker making an appearance at this time. There was speculation that Undertaker could have a feud with Drew McIntyre heading into SummerSlam, but nothing has been confirmed nor denied.

Roman Reigns and The Undertaker likely finished their feud with Shane McMahon following Extreme Rules, as it appears that Shane O'Mac will go on to have a potential match with Kevin Owens at SummerSlam.
