When the champion is not around the ever-present, Paul Heyman does a more than able job to take pot-shots at the challenger. And when Reigns and Rhodes do come face to face, they hit it out of the park every time.

During the engaging segment that had many moments, Reigns made a reference to The Second Generation superstar’s AEW career. He said, “You didn’t want to do the Stardust thing, so you ran away. Then you started a company that you couldn’t get over in and you ran away” It’s fair to say The Bloodline leader did not hold back.

The former Shield member did not mince his words on that occasion, either. Bringing in the legendary father of his opponent into the conversation.
