The plotline weaved throughout the show, and when Pearce finally caught up with Reigns, he was sitting in a locker room backstage. Reigns said he would “wreck everything, then leave,” which is apparently his new tagline, and then said he would walk out of Payback as the Universal Champion.
“That’s not a prediction,” he said. “That’s a spoiler.”
And that’s Paul Heyman’s line.
The camera panned to show Reigns sitting next to a grinning Heyman and the show went off the air.
What did that mean? No one was really sure. Viewers thought it was a heel turn and it really was the first “holy shit” moment on WWE television in a while.
