Seth Rollins def. Big Show via Count-out
UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS — Everything’s bigger in Texas, including the surprise opponent WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens finagled for Seth Rollins following The Architect’s obliteration of KO’s (estranged?) bestie, Chris Jericho. As part of a three-pronged “gift” to Jericho, The Prizefighter (with assistance from Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon) summoned Big Show from seclusion to beat on Rollins, but Owens’ strategy of attempting to bark orders at the giant from the corner proved to be a mistake. The World’s Largest Athlete chokeslammed Owens and took the count-out loss willingly, allowing Rollins free rein to dispose of The Prizefighter with a Pedigree.
The good news for Owens (yes, somehow there’s good news) is that he has two more machinations that may yet bear fruit. As part of that olive branch to Jericho, he’s both arranged for a Jericho-Rollins match at Roadblock: End of the Line and, more immediately, a U.S. Title match later in the night between The Ayatollah of Rock ’n’ Rolla and Owens’ current No. 1 contender, Roman Reigns.
