Roman Reigns wasn’t even supposed to be here.
Three weeks away from WrestleMania 34, Raw General Manager Kurt Angle opened this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw with an announcement, confirming that Reigns would not appear on the show because he was still suspended.
Less than 30 seconds after Angle made his statement, The Big Dog walked through the crowd with a WWE mic in his hand.

Left with no other options, Angle headed to the back while Reigns sat in the center in the ring waiting for a face-off with Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. On the orders of Angle, three U.S. Marshals attempted to escorted Reigns out of the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

With handcuffs on his wrists, Reigns eventually got physical with the Marshals who were a little too hands on for his liking. After Reigns cleared the ring, Lesnar’s music hit and the Universal Champion proceeded to beat his handcuffed WrestleMania opponent senseless.

THE BEAST @BrockLesnar is HERE, and he's going after a DEFENSELESS @WWERomanReigns! #RAW pic.twitter.com/Zq4QouAiAq— WWE (@WWE) March 20, 2018
The WrestleMania 34 pay-per-view (PPV) is scheduled for Sun., April 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana.
Reigns ended his night carried out on a stretcher. To add insult to injury, Lesnar came back out to the ring after Reigns was loaded on the stretcher and tipped it over just for laughs.
