Well this is a bizarre way to try and get ratings. The Twitter war between Roman Reigns and WWE has continued with both sides still at odds over Reigns’ potential appearance on Raw.
WWE tweeted once again that Roman Reigns will not be appearing on Raw on Saturday morning. Reigns has since responded to this message by reiterating that he will be there and WWE needs to have his music ready.

Roman Reigns claims that he will kick off Raw at 8pm eastern time. This spat between Reigns and WWE stems from Reigns wanted to appear on Raw to take care of business. We still do not know what business he has to take care of but clearly it must be significant enough for him to want to oppose WWE brass like this.
Raw has been experiencing a drastic decline in viewership over the last year. With two huge NBA playoff games set to go head-to-head with Raw, WWE could be looking at record-low ratings. Having Reigns on Raw appears to be another effort to boost ratings but it remains to be seen whether it will work or not.
