Raw Card:

Show Opener: Roman Reigns opens RAW. Roman says he's just out here for answers. Bray, show yourself. Firefly FunHouse intro plays. Corporate bray appears and tells Roman that I warned you. You made Him very upset. And no, I'm not talking about the boss. I'm talking about him. You see, in this corporate world, if someone does a bad job, that someone gets dismissed, discharged, fired. And the thing is Roman, I have done nothing wrong, the boss likes me. But you, the boss hates you. but, he can't fire you. So he's in a weird pickle of a situation. He has two superstars he can't fire. Luckily for us, I have the greatest idea. Bray pulls out a plush dog with a roman reigns collar. He then pulls out gasoline and lights the toy dog on fire. At Extreme Rules Roman, this will become your destiny when you are fired. When you face Him, in an inferno match. It's gonna be tough Roman, but don't worry, the severance pay is to die for. All you have to do is let him in. The lights go out and The Fiend pops up holding a torch. Roman sees this and escapes leaving The Fiend with a lit torch in the middle of the ring laughing.
