Corbin says he’s inviting The Big Dog to the ring now for this historic moment. Corbin says if they’re teammates then they should all be able to coexist in the ring now. Corbin asks the crowd if they want to see The Big Dog, and they do.
Reigns’ music hits but an animated chihuahua appears on the big screen instead, barking. Or more like yelping. A man comes out dressed as a mascot-type dog. He softly punches the ground on the stage as Reigns would. The little dog on the LED board keeps yelping as the mascot dog marches to the ring. Corbin, Ziggler and Roode laugh. Corbin asks if the dog knows any tricks. He has him take a knee and bow, and shake. The animated dog continues to yelp on the big screen, as he has non-stop since first appearing, as Reigns’ music plays. The mascot dog sits on his knees as Corbin, Roode and Ziggler play to the crowd for boos. We go to commercial.
