Although it initially appeared as though Roman Reigns wouldn’t return until Saturday at a WWE house show in Wildwood, New Jersey, the former champ made a surprise appearance at Friday’s live event in Newark.
Following the show’s main event, he hit Seth Rollins with a Superman punch and spear. He then had a brief stare down with WWE Champion Dean Ambrose.
WWE tweeted this video of Reigns going after Rollins.
