The Bloodline invaded RAW this Monday as a part of their scare tactics for their upcoming big match against Kevin Owens and John Cena. Roman Reigns cut a promo as the show began. He said that Owens would need the whole RAW locker room on his side to beat Reigns and Sami Zayn on December 30th. Reigns said that The Bloodline was coming to RAW to send a message.
The message was loud and clear as the invading faction attacked several RAW superstars backstage through the night.

Among their victims were Mustafa Ali, Elias and The O.C. This resulted in O.C.’s AJ Styles demanding a match against Bloodline’s Sami Zayn. Zayn managed to beat Styles after a Samoan Spike from Solo Sikoa behind the referee’s back.
The Bloodline made their presence felt yet again later in the show. The Usos interrupted an in-ring face-off between Austin Theory and Seth Rollins. Theory exited the ring wanting nothing to do with the Undisputed tag team champions. However Rollins stayed on, wanting to fight. He was outnumbered until Kevin Owens himself ran to the ring to help him. A brawl ensued until the security separated them. Owens & Rollins then demanded a match against The Usos that night.
During the match, Owens & Rollins had the upper hand until Solo Sikoa made his way to the ring. The O.C. took him down. They had their payback on Sikoa, who led their leader Styles to his defeat earlier. Owens hit Rollins’ stomp on Jey Uso outside the ring but Rollins was himself taken out by Theory, who hit him with the US title belt. Back in the ring, Owens found himself alone with Jimmy Uso and hit him with a pop-up powerbomb for the winning pin. After the match there was a brief stare down between Owens and Sami Zayn, who backed off.

KO now has a significant win against The Bloodline. He and Cena are a legitimate threat to their dominance in about a week.
