Triple H Addressed the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Oh, a member of The Authority kicked off Raw? I would've never guessed. In all seriousness, this was a logical follow-up to the conclusion of Battleground and an effective way of hyping the main event segment. The teasing of tension between Randy Orton and Kane has grown tiresome since I don't think anyone really cares about either guy as HHH's lackeys at the moment. Roman Reigns was over with the fans with his promo and this segment served as a nice tie-in to the subsequent Handicap matchup.

The match was nothing special, but the sole purpose it served was to further tease dissension between Orton and Kane. Again, fans have zero incentive to care about either guy right now, so the idea of the two feuding is boring to most. Sure, Reigns overcame the odds and scored a big win, but the outcome of the bout was heavily foreshadowed. I'd like to see Reigns vs. Triple H at SummerSlam, but it's looking more and more like Reigns will be facing Orton at the event instead.
