Roman Reigns was out next with Paul Heyman and Solo Sikoa. Before Roman could speak, Cody made his way out in a suit. Cody asked Roman what was on his mind and told Heyman to step back and let Roman speak.

Roman said that what Cody represented was the problem: 'it' being the idea of being an old-school pro-wrestler like their parents. Roman accused Cody of running away when WWE wanted him to play Stardust, and Rhodes fired back saying that if anyone mentioned his dad again, he was going to vomit.

Cody said that when he beats Roman at 'Mania, The Usos, Solo, and Heyman would all leave his side. Roman dropped the mic and left the ring, leaving Solo behind. Roman called for Sikoa to join them but Cody taunted him, causing him to try for the Samoan Spike.
