Roman Reigns def. Bray Wyatt
WILKES-BARRE, Penn. — Bray Wyatt made it very clear in the lead-up to WWE Extreme Rules that his dream was to “slay The Beast” and claim the Universal Title. Alas, Samoa Joe now has that opportunity, and The Reaper of Souls has turned his attention toward the “guilty” Superstars who denied him, beginning with Roman Reigns.
The Big Dog, of course, wasn’t entirely appreciative of Wyatt running him down in his own yard, so he socked The Eater of Worlds in the mouth and seized early control of the match. Wyatt gradually wore his opponent down to an even level as the battle raged on, planting Reigns with a uranage and rallying from a Drive-By to connect with a clothesline that nearly knocked Reigns out cold. But Reigns saved his best burst for last, escaping Wyatt’s attempt at Sister Abigail to land a Superman Punch and a Spear for the win.
