Last night’s episode of WWE Raw ended with a bang. The Usos attacked Raw tag team champion, Randy Orton, with a double superkick. Roman Reigns had instructed his Bloodline stablemates to unify the Raw and SmackDown tag titles.

There was some concern about Roman Reigns’ status following WrestleMania. Ringside News exclusively reported that Vince McMahon isn’t talking about Reigns or Brock Lesnar’s status. Now we know what Reigns is okay to perform, at least in a six-man tag team match where he can be protected.

After the show went off the air, WWE put on a dark match for the live fans in Detroit. Roman Reigns teamed with The Usos to take on Drew McIntyre, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods in a six-man tag team match. The action was frantic and the winners were somewhat surprising.

Reigns attempted to spear Drew McIntyre, but Drew was able to avoid the impact. McIntyre then hit the Claymore on Jey Uso for the three-count. Paul Heyman also got involved with some fans at ringside.


The fans taunted Heyman, who was then consoled by Roman Reigns. Roman asked the fans to be quiet, but they continued to relentlessly heckle him. Meanwhile, his team was sent home with a loss.

The untelevised match probably won’t have much of an effect on WWE’s televised storylines. The televised finale told the main story. The Usos and RK-Bro are on a collision course.

WWE will have to make some decisions about how to handle a title unification belt. Both of the company’s world titles are currently on SmackDown after Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE title at WrestleMania. Time will tell what will happen if The Bloodline takes home all the gold.
