Reigns hits the ring as we see a clip from last week where he returned and announced that he is in remission from the recent battle with leukemia.

Reigns says in order to get what he wants, he needs to address that. Reigns calls Rollins out to the ring. The music hits and out he comes to a pop.
Rollins first wants to say that one of the best moments of his own career was watching Reigns stand here last week and come back. That made him feel like he can do anything. Rollins says he’s going to take that feeling to WrestleMania 35 and slay The Beast, WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. Rollins is going to bring the title back to RAW and represent each week. Rollins says he might know where Reigns’ head is at. Rollins understands what it’s like to have to vacate a title and never lose it.

Reigns says he wants it. He asks the fans if they want it and they pop. Reigns says tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, life is short and we don’t know how much time we have. The most important thing we have are relationships and they are his brothers. Reigns doesn’t know what’s with Ambrose, if he’s coming or going, but he’s making headlines and Reigns just wants one more moment with his brothers while he can. Reigns asks Rollins what he thinks. Fans chant for The Shield again. Fans cheer as Rollins thinks it over. Rollins says he put that part of his life behind him but Reigns is right – life is too short and tomorrow is not guaranteed. Fans pop. Rollins says if Reigns wants The Shield together one more time, he’s got it. Rollins says he’s in. Reigns calls for Ambrose to come to the ring.
