Seth “Freakin” Rollins knocked on the door and started laughing hysterically as The Head of the Table was taking in his cousins’ tag team victory. Is this to imply that the Universal Champion’s opponent at the next Premium Live Event will be the Superstar who knows him better than everyone else? Is it possible that the WWE Universe will see Reigns face Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble? Or is the appearance of the laughing Raw Superstar unrelated, and Reigns’ opponent is still unknown?
