With most headlined by a Cena versus Rollins feud, many expected some kind of connection to be made between the two especially when there was nothing leading up to Night to bring them together.

Rikishi hasn't always been shoving his posterior into the snots of foes, in fact Solofa Fatu Jr. started on the undercard as a 19-year-old rookie trying to make a name for himself in the wrestling business.
