In the evening dedicated to the last great WWE PPV event of the year, the Survivor Series, which are the fourth and last Big Four of the company after Royal Rumble, Wrestlemania and Summerslam, the Stamford-based federation as it is now practised in the last years, he included several great inter-brand matches on the card of the event, with the champions of the two main rosters of the McMahon-owned federation who saw it face to face, to understand who was the strongest.
The dispute that was certainly most awaited during the evening, in fact, saw the WWE Champion of Monday Night Raw, Drew McIntyre and the Universal Champion of Friday Night Smackdown, Roman Reigns, compete in a sensational match in what was a match already seen several times, but this time he was unique, as Roman Reigns had never been a heel in the previous contests, while instead the Scottish talent always played the part of the "villain"
In a truly high-level match, with several front flips and several last-second kick-outs, Roman Reigns finally managed to get the better of Raw's WWE Champion, with the providential help of his younger cousin, Jey Uso, which came at the right time, when the referee was on the ground due to a fortuitous blow received by the athletes.
Roman Reigns def. Drew McIntyre
In the moment when things seemed to turn for the worst for Roman Reigns, in fact, the referee fell to the ground and Jey Uso found a way to distract McIntyre, who was then hit by a low blow from the Universal champion and then still from the same use.
After hitting him with a Superman Punch and closing him in his guillotine submission move, there was nothing for Drew McIntyre to do, as a new referee stepped into the ring and the WWE Champion's attempt to get up again, which is then instead passed out under the strength of Reigns, he could not help but ring the bell as a sign of victory for Roman Reigns.
The WWE Champion countered another Spear attempt with a Claymore, but Reigns collided with the referee, sending him out of the ring in a moment that proved decisive. Reigns took advantage by hitting a low blow before McIntyre was struck by a superkick from The Big Dog’s cousin, Jey Uso.
Reigns finally locked Drew in the Guillotine that he attempted to apply several times earlier, eventually putting the valiant McIntyre unconscious for the win, with no small thanks to Uso, who put himself back in the good graces of The Head of The Table.
