At WWE Payback, Roman Reigns and Braun Strowman brutalized each other to an unfathomable degree, and Raw General Manager Kurt Angle set aside some time to address the in-ring futures of both Superstars.
In short, they’re both hurt — Reigns re-aggravated his injured ribs and suffered other internal injuries, while Strowman tore his rotator cuff — but they’re not done with each other. Yet before he could expand on what the future holds for the two heavy-hitters, The Olympic Hero’s plans were quickly upended by the arrival of Bray Wyatt.
The Eater of Worlds has, surprisingly, kept mostly a low profile on Raw since coming over in the Superstar Shake-up, but with Randy Orton finally in his rearview, Wyatt was ready to formally take control of Team Red. He offered Angle the chance to “walk by his side” while he acted as the “savior” to the WWE Universe. The Olympic Hero didn’t quite refuse Bray's offer of co-existence, but he was quick to remind the former WWE Champion that Raw was his show. The Reaper of Souls replied simply: “This may be your show, but I need you to understand: This is my world.”
