WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens def. Roman Reigns by Disqualification

PITTSBURGH — WWE Roadblock: End of the Line may have concluded with Roman Reigns smashing Kevin Owens through a table, yet KO still managed to walk away with the victory, his best friend and, most importantly, his Universal Title.

Whether he was torn up about his strained relations with Chris Jericho or just looking to play mind games with Reigns, Owens started the contest by evading The Big Dog. That plan worked for a bit — until Reigns’ fist swiftly met the WWE Universal Champion’s face with a firm punch to the kisser.

From there, The Guy and KO went back and forth in front of the WWE Universe in Pittsburgh, with momentum shifting several times over. KO seemed to have victory in hand when he dished out three vicious Frog Splashes (one onto the announce table, the second crashing him through it and the third in the ring for a near fall), but Reigns would not be derailed.

Instead, The Big Dog rallied back, weathering Owens’ storm and connecting with a big Spear. However, controversy arose when Jericho arrived and, after a few moments of contemplation, delivered a Codebreaker to his best friend Owens. The act led to the official calling for the bell, and awarding the DQ victory to KO.

It seemed that Jericho and Owens’ friendship had reached the end of the line, but it became clear that Jericho, in a clever ruse, had delivered the DQ-inducing blow on purpose so his buddy could retain the title.

The two cohorts tried to get out of Dodge, but they were cut off at the pass by Seth Rollins, who proceeded to join up with Reigns to put both Jericho and Owens through two separate tables in classic Shield style. The savagery was undoubtedly satisfying for The Big Dog, but his journey to dethrone Owens is far from over.
