Roman Reigns def. Jason Jordan
ANAHEIM, Calif. — Anything John Cena can do, Roman Reigns can do better? The Big Dog matched the 16-time World Champion’s feat from last week’s Raw by defeating Jason Jordan in a competitive match, and though it took Jordan far longer to assert himself this time around, the former SmackDown Tag Team Champion made no less of a statement in defeat when all was said and done.
Reigns looked past Jordan’s offer of a pre-match handshake and imposed his will upon the young competitor from the jump, outpowering his foe to such a degree that the only offense Jordan could manage was a submission attempt that Reigns quickly escaped. A pair of surprise suplexes opened the floodgates for Jordan down the stretch, but The Big Dog rallied from the edge of disaster to claim the win with the trifecta of a Drive-By, Superman Punch and Spear.
Reigns was, at least, compelled to finally shake Jordan’s hand, but Cena, who had been watching the match on a monitor, seemed to have a few thoughts of his own on his future opponent’s performance.
