Seth “Freakin” Rollins def. Jinder Mahal to retain the World Heavyweight Championship
Looking to dial back the clock to 2017, The Modern Day Maharaja attempted to take Seth “Freakin” Rollins’ World Heavyweight Title.
Rollins had his back was against the wall, with not only Sanga and Veer of Indus Sher at ringside for Mahal, but the arrival of Señor Money in the Bank Damian Priest, who sauntered down to ringside with his briefcase.
Deep into the match, Rollins went for the Pedigree, nailing it but coming down hard on his knee, allowing Indus Sher to help Mahal get his foot on the bottom rope.
With both men down, Priest considered cashing in his contract, but Drew McIntyre attacked him to prevent the cash-in.
During this fracas, Mahal took advantage, hitting a gutbuster for a close two-count. Indus Sher then gave Mahal a Hail Mary, hitting Rollins with the briefcase before Mahal almost captured the victory with the Khallas.
Rollins miraculously kicked out at the last second, saving his championship reign with a last-gasp effort. The Visionary then hit the Stomp on Mahal to claim a hard-earned title defense.
