We are back with a look at the Roman Reigns and Erick Rowan situation.

Erick Rowan makes his way to the ring.  

Rowan says all his life, people don't seem to get him.  All of you think that he is controlled by somebody and they tell him what to do . . . until last week.  All of you need to look him in the eyes because you are afraid to look him in the eyes and see what it is that makes him tick.  You need to look deep into these eyes to see who he is.  He is a schemer and manipulator.  All you see is a big brute who victimizes and terrorizes.

Roman Reigns' music plays and he makes his way to the ring.

Kofi says he sees some kids in the crowd and they might not know what happened and some might have forgotten it.  We take a look at the Boom Drop Kofi hit on Orton.

That is just a small taste of what he is going to do to Randy Orton at Clash of Champions when he remains your . . .
