Solo then walked over to Jimmy and hugged him and told him he is his brother and he loved him and recently signed Tama Tonga attacked Jimmy. Paul stands in the corner with his mouth open in disbelief. As Solo set up Jimmy with the Samoan Spike, Paul screamed no. But he hit him anyway.

As Solo and Tama hold up the number one sign, Paul tries to call Roman Reigns and Solo rips the phone out of Paul’s hand and smashes it. Tama went out and got a chair and Solo places it in the corner around Jimmy’s head and tells him again he loves him then runs and hits him with the hip.
