Shawn Michaels Warns Roman Reigns About Facing The Undertaker

On the March 13, 2017 episode of Raw, Shawn Michaels showed up after Roman Reigns defeated Jinder Mahal to warn him about facing Taker at Mania.  This was the best segment on Raw of all the ones I was awake for at least, even better than the closing segment.

If you did not see it, the segment is below:

I really liked this segment especially the way Roman trotted out his "All due respect..." line again and then boldly declared he was going to retire Taker. That is the exact kind of swagger that Roman Reigns should demonstrate at all times. That's The Guy that he was after WrestleMania 32, and it is the best presentation for him whether he is a face, heel, whatever.

The only curious aspect to me is how BRAUN (that's the way I always type it and always will type it) plays into all this. That shot he delivered was brutal as was how Roman sold it. I find it hard to believe that Roman will beat BRAUN again next week on Raw so I am hoping for a non-finish at worst, or a BRAUN victory (with shenanigans) at best.

No matter what happens next week, I am hyped for Roman v Taker as well as the continued dominance of BRAUN Strowman.  WWE is setting up some interesting stuff for Mania, and beyond.  That's a good thing.
