Roman Reigns put the Universal Championship on the line in the UK
Written by admin

The next big Pay-Per-View takes place on September 16 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas and the red brand’s top stars gave the UK crowd a taste of what’s to come as they faced their confirmed and potential opponents ahead of next month’s show.

Universal Champion Roman Reigns put the title on the line against Braun Strowman, the same opponent he will face in Texas in a Hell in a Cell Match.

New RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey defended her belt against her Hell in a Cell opponent Alexa Bliss just two weeks after dethroning her at SummerSlam.

Reigns’ Shield partners Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose continued their feud with the daunting duo of Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre and their rivalry may continue in the next few weeks.

But who stood tall at The O2? Check out our results below for more:

Bobby Roode def. Jinder Mahal

Bobby Roode regained some momentum after a few disappointing outings marred by defeat at the hands of Ziggler and Mojo Rawley.

Roode prevailed against former WWE Champion Jinder Mahal and even though he couldn’t hit his signature Glorious DDT he still managed to pin The Modern Day Maharaja.

Mahal tried to deliver the Kallas but The Glorious One countered and tried to hit his finisher before his opponent picked him up over his shoulders and then lost to a Small Package.

The Modern Day Maharaja tried to calm down after his loss but his night got worse as Bray Wyatt came out and took him out with the Sister Abigail.

Natalya, Bayley and Sasha Banks def. The Riott Squad

The newly-formed duo of Sasha Banks and Bayley joined forces with Natalya and took on the dangerous Riott Squad.

Ruby Riott, Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan did a great job isolating Bayley who endured tremendous punishment at the hands of the former Smackdown superstars.

However, the former RAW Women’s Champion managed to tag in Banks who locked Riott in the Bank Statement and made her tap out.

Cruiserweight Champion Cedric Alexander def. Drew Gulak

Cedric Alexander picked up a much more convincing win over Drew Gulak after their close finish at SummerSlam.

The two 205 superstars were evenly matched throughout the bout as the Cruiserweight Champion couldn’t overpower the challenger.

However, Alexander managed to hit his opponent with the Lumbar Check and retained his title ahead of Hell in a Cell.

RAW Tag Team Champions The B-Team def. The Revival and Titus Worldwide

The B-Team managed to retain the RAW Tag Team Championships once more in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match.

Bo Dallas and Curtis Axel psyched out Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder of The Revival.

Titus O’Neil and Apollo Crews didn’t pose much of a threat and that made the champions’ work much easier.

Axel picked up the win for the unlikely title-holders with a Schoolboard pin on Wilder who was left seething after the match.

Bobby Lashley destroyed Elias during his musical performance

Elias tried to follow in the footsteps of legendary singers Jon Bon Jovi, Beyonce and The Spice Girls when he decided to sing at The O2.

However, things didn’t go as planned as after he trolled the crowd Bobby Lashley came out and decided to perform with him.

The Drifter wasn’t in much of a mood as he attacked Lashley and then suffered a stunning Vertical Suplex that cut his show short.

Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose def. Dolph Ziggler and Drew McIntyre

Rollins and Ambrose have been embroiled in an intense feud with Ziggler and McIntyre since SummerSlam when The Lunatic Fringe returned and helped The Kingslayer regain the Intercontinental Championship from The Showoff.

The two former WWE Champions recently reformed The Shield with Reigns and proved to be stronger than ever with a decisive win over their rivals after an intense matchup.

Ziggler almost picked up the win after hitting Rollins with the Zig Zag but the Intercontinental Champion kicked out just in time.

Ambrose then hit McIntyre with Dirty Deeds and Ziggler was pinned after suffering yet another Curb Stomp from Rollins.

Baron Corbin def. Finn Balor

The war between Finn Balor and Acting RAW General Manager Baron Corbin continued in the UK as The Lone Wolf once more tried to impose his dominance on the inaugural Universal Champion.

Balor defeated Corbin with a Small Package after countering The End of Days but the ex-US Champion attacked the winner immediately after and restarted the match, just like he did last Monday night on RAW.

The Lone Wolf made it a No Disqualification Match and whacked the former NXT Champion with a steel chair before picking up another controversial win with the End of Days.

RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey def. Alexa Bliss

Rousey annihilated Bliss at SummerSlam two weeks ago and made her tap out to the Armbar before becoming the first ever athlete to win Women’s Championships in WWE and UFC.

However, Bliss put together a much better performance at The O2 as she faked an arm injury and then attacked the champion when she lost her focus.

The Baddest Woman on the Planet endured a lot of punishment and even though she made The Goddess tap out to the Armbar once more their Hell in a Cell bout promises to be very intense.

Universal Champion Roman Reigns def. Braun Strowman via disqualification

Reigns and Strowman are set for war at Hell in a Cell insisde ‘Satan’s structure’ after The Monster Among Men agreed to cash in his Money in the Bank contract.

The two super heavyweights though gave the WWE Universe a sneak peek of what’s to come at The O2 as they faced off in an intense match.

Strowman suffered various Superman Punches but the ex-RAW Tag Team Champion almost won the match after hitting The Big Dog with the steel steps.

The match took so much out of both competitors who couldn’t stand up and then Ziggler and McIntyre came out to attack the Universal Champion.

Strowman tried to help them launch another savage attack following last Monday’s episode but Ambrose and Rollins came out to save their partner.

The Shield got the better of their WWE Super Show-Down opponents and slammed McIntyre through a wooden table with the Triple Powerbomb.
