U.S. Champion Roman Reigns def. WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens to become No. 1 contender to the WWE Universal Championship

U.S. Champion Roman Reigns def. WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens to become No. 1 contender to the WWE Universal Championship

According to Roman Reigns, Kevin Owens cannot win without Chris Jericho by his side. As you may recall, Owens disagreed with this statement. Well, Jericho got taken out by Seth Rollins, and a solo Owens lost to Reigns. Draw whatever conclusions you want from that, but one is inescapable: Reigns is now the No. 1 contender to KO’s WWE Universal Championship.

Owens, it must be said, had plenty of chances to put The Big Dog away. But Reigns had an answer for each time, and once he muscled his way out of Chinlock City, Owens got desperate. The Big Dog gained momentum as Owens (who later blamed the loss on concern for Chris Jericho’s well-being) progressively lost his, following up a pair of massive Superman Punches with a Spear to punch his ticket to Roadblock: End of the Line.
