Kevin Owens issues challenge to Roman Reigns

Just as Reigns continued talking, Kevin Owens’ music played. KO came down to the ring and wasting no time, he told Roman that last week, he was waiting for him to come but he didn’t. Hence, he came to Reigns instead.

KO said he doesn’t fear Roman Reigns last week and repeated the same to the ‘Tribal Chief‘ in person. Owens challenged Roman for a Universal Championship match at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs. He also said if Reigns ain’t down for that, they can fight tonight!

KO persuaded Reigns to give him an answer. Reigns put his hand out for Heyman to hand him the mic, but Jey Uso took it instead. Uso said they run this show, and they accept Owens’ challenge, citing it as ‘easy.’

Owens quickly shut Uso down by calling him a ‘Bus Boy.’ ‘The Tribal Chief’ then took the mic and laughed before saying that they don’t back down or fear anyone. He accepted his challenge but said there is a time and place for everything.

Roman Reigns also noted that if he was the old him, he would’ve beat Owens up already. Roman referred to himself as a gentleman and called Owens a lady.

The animosity continues to build

Remember Otis? The man Jey Uso viciously attacked last week for no apparent reason whatsoever? Yeah! Blue Collar Solid and the Prizefighter will battle together.
