Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE, is back with the RAW recap edition.

- This week's RAW was live in Brooklyn, New York. The man himself, Vincent Kennedy McMahon, returned to RAW this week, after eating a Superman Punch from WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns, two weeks ago. And speaking of returns, John Cena returned to RAW this week, after taking time off after Hell In A Cell, in October. Cena took on the man that defeated him at Hell In A Cell, WWE United States Champion, Alberto Del Rio. Let's get to this weeks RAW Recap Edition.

- Vince McMahon Promo: Vince is here to settle the score with WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns. Vince calls out Reigns, Reigns' music hits and out comes the champ. Vince says he hopes Reigns isn't expecting a congratulations, promises Triple H will get revenge soon, mentions what happened last week with Stephanie McMahon and reminds Reigns that he owns this ring, Reigns' title and Reigns himself. Reigns says Vince doesn't own him or the title, WE own it (Meaning Reigns and the WWE Universe). Vince tells Reigns stories about all of Reigns' relatives that worked for WWE and how Vince would humiliate them, put them through hell, made money off of them, paid them cheap and loved every minute of it. Reigns shoves Vince down, Vince grabs his neck and claims to have injured it. Stephanie McMahon arrives with two police officers and orders Reigns arrested for assault. The police refuse, stating they were hired for security reasons not to be a personal police department. Stephanie yells at the police, the police threaten to take Stephanie to jail, Vince steps in, argues with the police and grabs a police officer by the collar.
