Samoa Joe confronted Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns was quick to point out that he was on Raw while Universal Champion Brock Lesnar was once again absent, but despite his promise to become a "full-time Universal Champion" at the Greatest Royal Rumble event, Samoa Joe was there to quip that Reigns' boasts stopped short of “getting the job done.”
Once again reminding his WWE Backlash opponent that Lesnar has gotten the better of him at almost every turn, Joe reiterated that he would provide the "sweet mercy" of putting The Big Dog to sleep after the dust had settled from the Roman-Lesnar Steel Cage title match. That said, Joe wasn’t about to take Reigns’ attempts to bait him into a fight then and there. The Samoan Submission Machine reiterated that their battle would happen “on his time,” though the question of how much of The Big Dog will make it to Backlash remains to be seen.
