Roman Reigns def. Raw Tag Team Champions Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson via Disqualification
LAS VEGAS — Roman Reigns is on the road to WWE Fastlane, but what’s really grinding his gears is the propensity of his opponent, Braun Strowman, to ruin his night at every turn. Raw Commissioner Stephanie McMahon wasn’t about to let Reigns interfere with Strowman’s match later on in the evening, though, tossing out a thinly veiled threat of booting him from WrestleMania. And she was more than happy to feed Reigns into a 2-on-1 disadvantage against Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson in a Handicap Match when the tag champs ostensibly arrived to defend her from Reigns’ disrespect.
That The Big Dog technically defeated the good brothers will likely be a consolation of the not-too-sweet variety. The champions got a couple good hits on Reigns before the bout began and beat on him some more when it looked as though the former WWE Champion was on the verge of rallying, leading to a disqualification. And that Reigns ultimately managed to beat the champions back even after they jumped him might also just be a victory of the moral variety. They may have lost the match, but judging by the looks of Reigns at the end of things, their work was clearly done.
