Roman Reigns came face-to-face with a former rival when WWE RAW after WrestleMania 38 went off the air.
Roman Reigns succeeded in putting down Brock Lesnar in the main event of WrestleMania 38. The victory gave him both the Universal and WWE titles, and The Tribal Chief is now the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
The closing segment of RAW after WrestleMania 38 saw The Bloodline coming out and Reigns bragging about defeating Lesnar at The Show of Shows. Reigns then revealed that he’ll let the fans know about his next move on Friday. RAW went off the air with The Bloodline standing tall.
When the cameras stopped rolling, Kevin Owens came out for his singles match against Cody Rhodes. He encountered Reigns midway and both men stopped in their tracks.
Reigns smiled, nodded at Owens, and murmured something to him. In a show of respect, Reigns tapped Owens’ back and the latter did the same before parting ways. Judging by the interaction, it looks like the duo have made up for what happened between them last year. Check out the wholesome clip below:
