The New Day complete with new WWE Champion Big E are set to take on Universal Champion Roman Reigns and The Usos on RAW.
The match was made after Big E returned to SmackDown with his new championship in hand to confront Roman Reigns. As SmackDown began The Bloodline and Paul Heyman held court in the ring. Addressing events from the previous week, Paul Heyman said that he was in awe of Reigns and that he wasn’t afraid of anyone, not even a beast or a demon.
Reigns’ Special Counsel continued, saying that he knew Brock Lesnar better than anyone, and for the first time ever he saw fear in the eyes of The Beast when he came face-to-face with Reigns.
At this, Big E came to the ring, celebrating as he went. He briefly stared down Reigns before Finn Balor joined the proceedings.
This led to a tag team match between The Usos and Balor and Big E, which the first-time team won.

Later in the night, Paul Heyman was speaking to Kayla Braxton backstage, after she speculated that Lesnar might be heading to RAW in the draft. Heyman turned around straight into Big E, saying that the WWE Champion made the right choice to take on Bobby Lashley as he was vulnerable.
Big E shot back suggesting that he would challenge Heyman’s boy at Survivor Series, before questioning whether that was Lesnar or Reigns. As Big E wondered whether Balor could ruin Heyman’s plans, The Usos jumped the new WWE Champion.
The Usos then delivered a vicious beatdown Big E to leave him laying.
Once the dust had settled it was announced that The New Day would meet The Bloodline on RAW.
