In a moment exemplary for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship, Roman Reigns outlived Drew McIntyre on Saturday before more than 60,000 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
“The Tribal Chief” required three lances, two Superman Punches, two guillotines and, surprisingly, the assistance of another individual from The Bloodline, Solo Sikoa, who mediated late in the match to help Roman secure the success.
Sikoa, who performs on NXT, is the more youthful sibling of Reigns’ cousins, the tag-group champion Usos. The Usos weren’t close by for WWE’s most memorable arena show in the U.K. since SummerSlam ’92, nor was Paul Heyman, however Sikoa appeared to go after McIntyre, who was endeavoring to end Roman’s two-year run as champion with a third Claymore.
The impedance assisted Reigns with associating with a third lance to deny McIntyre, who hails from Scotland, the opportunity to come out on top for the championships before his old neighborhood fans.
Heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury supported McIntyre and drove the group in a version of his brand name front of “American Pie.” But that wasn’t in support of “The Gypsy King.”
With Reigns and McIntyre debilitated after a Claymore took out Roman and the official, Austin Theory ran to the ring to trade his Money out the Bank folder case. Before a subsequent ref could ring the chime, Fury associated with a major right hand that left Theory took out in a store.
Other than Sikoa and Fury, Karrion Kross likewise spread the word about his presence from the get-go in the match after he threw a water bottle at McIntyre. “The Scottish Warrior” was in charge, however the interruption permitted Reigns to get the high ground after he ran McIntyre into the turnbuckle post, which prompted a nine count. They alternated, to and fro, endeavoring a suplex before Roman at last dropped McIntyre with a progression of strikes. Rules then, at that point, told the group to “Recognize Me” before McIntyre associated with the first of numerous Glasgow Kisses.
The huge men exchanged punches before McIntyre conveyed a couple of paunch to-tummy suplexes followed by a neck breaker. A spinebuster and a folding blade cover prompted a two count before Roman raged back.
He hit McIntyre with a Uranage however Drew answered with the Future Shock DDT. A Claymore endeavor was replied with a Superman Punch, and Roman went for the lance however Drew countered with a kick to the face.
Roman hit the lance in any case for the primary close fall of the match. Unfit to get the pinfall, Reigns went for an accommodation with the guillotine, yet McIntyre got away from by driving Roman into the turnbuckle. A subsequent guillotine was secured, yet McIntyre sent Reigns to the external this time. That is the point at which the situation spun out of control. McIntyre sent Reigns through the blockade with his very own lance, trailed by a Claymore endeavor inside the ring, however Roman answered with a subsequent lance. Once more, McIntyre threw out, stirring the stunned group into a craze. Roman lost his concentration and contended with the ref in regards to the count, permitting McIntyre to underwrite with the Claymore that took them full scale. Rules endeavored a seat shot with the official took out, yet McIntyre associated on a subsequent Claymore. After Roman threw out, they traded punches once more, and Roman snuck in a Superman Punch, however McIntyre terminated back with a Glasgow Kiss and another lance. A subsequent Claymore associated, as well, and it seemed McIntyre was ready to wrest the two belts from Roman before the top dog’s cousin meddled.
What’s next for Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre? We continue to ask who can oust Reigns, and everything focuses to the conceivable return of Cody Rhodes, and in the event that not Rhodes, whoever wins the Royal Rumble in January. The expansion of Solo Sikoa to The Bloodline helps set up a few open doors, specifically the gradual process of Sami Zayn’s “privileged” status being denied and Solo’s legitimate climb, giving a Kevin Owens/Sami Zayn versus Usos label quarrel.
Concerning Drew McIntyre, where precisely does he go? He’s as yet the greatest face not named Cody Rhodes at the present time, however he can go at Reigns again at Extreme Rules given their awe-inspiring match in Cardiff. Yet again of course, he actually disapproves of Karrion Kross to settle after Kross interposed during Saturday’s championship.
