JEDDAH – Regardless of how the WWE Universe feels about Shane McMahon or his methods, “The Best in the World” did exactly what he vowed to do when he defeated Roman Reigns at WWE Super ShowDown.

After being brutalized in back-to-back nights this week by Shane-O-Mac and his associates, including McMahon’s now-omnipresent muscle, Drew McIntyre, the determined Reigns found himself at a rarely seen disadvantage standing across the ring from Shane in Jeddah. Still seething at ringside following his defeat to The Big Dog at WrestleMania, The Scottish Psychopath delivered cheap shots to Reigns at every opportunity, while official Charles Robinson allowed “The Best in the World” a noticeable degree of leniency in his officiating.

Taking full advantage of the myriad of factors hindering Reigns, McMahon grounded The Big Dog, taking his larger opponent off his feet and locking in his signature triangle submission. As Shane vied to be the first competitor in WWE to make Reigns submit, the former Universal Champion reversed the deadly hold into a ring-shaking powerbomb.

Shane then used the same move that battered and humiliated Reigns earlier in the week, mocking The Big Dog with a Spear of his own, but he only got a two-count for his efforts. Growing increasingly frustrated, Shane-O-Mac decided to go high-risk and ascended the ropes to execute his patented Coast-to-Coast. However, Reigns brought “The Best in the World” back down to earth, both literally and metaphorically, with a well-timed Superman Punch that knocked McMahon off the turnbuckle. Now, it was time for Reigns to show Shane what a true Spear could do.

But that Spear would never come. As Reigns and Shane-O-Mac traded punches in the middle of the ring, Shane was knocked into the official, who was momentarily staggered and did not witness McIntyre entering the ring and nailing Reigns with a vicious Claymore Kick that allowed Shane to score the pinfall. Nearly two months after Reigns leveled Mr. McMahon with the Superman Punch on his debut night as a SmackDown LIVE Superstar, Shane had, in his mind, avenged his father and beaten some “respect” into The Big Dog.

But Reigns has retribution on his mind as well, and at WWE Stomping Grounds, he’ll have the chance to get some payback against McIntyre and remind The Scottish Psychopath who runs the yard on SmackDown LIVE.
