The comments from Reigns are interesting and some have speculated that WWE might run an invasion type angle on RAW. WWE ratings have been on the decline and they are looking for anything to pull them up; especially with SmackDown moving to Fox in the fall.
During the Superstar Shake-Up, Reigns was drafted to SmackDown. At the time, he had no major feud on RAW after defeating Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 35. He has already started a feud on SmackDown with Elias and they will meet at Money in the Bank, which takes place two weeks from today.
– Speaking of low ratings, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter said to not be surprised if some big names appear over the next several weeks. They mentioned the likes of Brock Lesnar, Bill Goldberg and Undertaker appearing.

With all three confirmed for the June 7 Saudi Arabia show, they could easily be worked into the script as WWE builds towards the unnamed show.
