We are in Indianapolis, Indiana and your announcers are Booker T, Rich Brennan, and Jerry Lawler.
There is a table, a ladder, and a chair in the ring since the WWE World Title Match is going to be a TLC Match at the TLC Pay Per View.
Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring and we see photos of what happened to Reigns on Sunday night when he experienced the thrill of victory and moments later . . . the agony of defeat.
We also see what happened to Roman Reigns on Monday night when he wrestled Rusev only to be attacked by Wade Barrett.
Roman says when he was a little kid, him and the Usos used to wrestle all over the house. It got to the point one Uso broke a table using another Uso. That got them a lifetime ban from wrestling in the house. They continued to wrestle outside. They wrestled at the beach and the pool. Their favorite spot was the trampoline. They imagined that they could win the WWE Championship one day. It felt like a dream until Sunday when he won the WWE Championship.
It was a short dream. The dream got shattered when Sheamuscrushed his face with a Brogue Kick.
Speaking of the man who shattered Roman’s dreams and face, Sheamus’ music plays and he makes his way onto the stage.
Sheamus tells Roman you need to get over this fella. You are a walking talking Adele song and that is not good. You were WWE Champion for Five Minutes and Fifteen Seconds. That was days ago. You have been talking about being World Champion longer than you were WWE Champion.
Sheamus says he has been in elevators longer than Roman was champion. You cannot reheat a frozen burrito in the time that you were champion. Sheamus says if he started reading a book when you became champion, he wouldn’t have been able to finish the first page by the time it ended.
Sheamus tells Roman to get over it because everyone agrees that this looks so much better on him. Sheamus says he is having a bit of fun. He wants to know how great this is now. He tells everyone to suck it in. Sheamus says he is not here to bust Roman’s chops. You had a hell of a moment at Survivor Series. You had a grueling match against Alberto Del Rio. Then you had a match with your best friendDean Ambrose and you beat the hell out of each other. After two intense matches, you did it. You became the WWE World Champion. What a moment. There was confetti from the ceiling and pyro was going off. The people were standing and giving you a standing ovation. What a moment.
Sheamus says he is out of breath at how excited he was for Roman. That is when your moment became my moment. Rather than shake the hand of the man who gave you that opportunity, you spearedTriple H out of his shoes. Sheamus says he Brogue Kicked Roman to hell, took the title belt out of your hands, stabbed you in the heart, and shattered your dreams. What a moment. How good that felt to be the new WWE World Champion.
Roman says you can stand out there and continue to look stupid or you can come to the ring and he can show the world what he can do to you in under five minutes.
Sheamus asks Roman if that is what he wants.
Roman asks Indianapolis if that is what you want.
Sheamus starts to walk to the ring and then he stops and he says not a chance. That is the difference between you and me. You want to run down and fight. You don’t think things through. That is why you aren’t the champion. All you had to do was shake Triple H’s hand. Sheamus says he is smart and he bides his time and he takes his opportunities and that is why he has this and all you have . . . are broken dreams.
Sheamus tells Roman he will see him in his nightmares . . . fella.
Roman says that he wants to talk about Sheamus’ nightmare and a sneak peak of what will happen at TLC. He will break his jaw with a Superman Punch. He has three words for Sheamus . . . Tables, Ladders, and Chairs. The first thing he is going to do is fold this thing up and try to break your back with it. When he is done with that, he is going to scoop you up and power bomb you through a table. Then when you cannot get up, he is going to climb the ladder and claim what is his, the WWE Championship.
Roman tells Sheamus to ‘BELIEVE THAT’
