Roman Reigns vs. Jinder Mahal at Money In The Bank was rated by many as the worst match at Sunday’s Pay-Per-View event. The crowd in attendance gave the two Superstars a hard time with chants of “NXT,” “CM Punk ”and“ This is Awful,” Lets Go Cena/Cena Sucks
Johnny Wrestling. Reigns took to twitter to address the negative fan reaction in Chicago and posted a John Cena-esque tweet.

However, match official had a different opinion and tweeted:
For as great a town that Chicago is for wrestling (one of the best ever), it is really disappointing that they can be so disrespectful when guys like @JinderMahal and @WWERomanReigns are busting there butts and giving us a great match.

WWE currently has over 110 main roster talent and the roster is bigger than ever. Such a huge roster brings with it some latent benefits as well as backdraws. The Revival, one of the best tag teams in NXT history, seems to be lost in the giant roster as they haven’t had much exposure or push ever since they were called-up from NXT. The Revival, who hadn’t accomplished much since their main roster debut in April, 2017, were “revived” by legendary WWE Superstar and Hall Of Famer, Bret “The Hitman” Hart.
Bret Hart recently sent his niece, former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, Natalya a photo of himself holding a pack of The Revival. Apparently, Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder are The Hitman’s new favorite action figures.
