AJ Styles vs. Seth "Freakin'" Rollins
The panel wraps up, the "WWE Then. Now. Forever. Together" opening signature airs and then the cold open video package officially gets WWE Night Of Champions 2023 off-and-running.
After the package wraps up, fireworks explode and the camera pans the massive Jeddah SuperDome as Michael Cole welcomes us to the tenth annual WWE Night of Champions 2023 pay-per-view.
Kicking things off today will be the finals of the tournament to crown the first-ever World Heavyweight Champion. With that said, we see a shot of the beautiful new championship belt on the velvet red carpet on the podium
The camera settles at the commentary desk where Cole and Corey Graves are shown. They kick it to the Arabic commentary team, who introduce themselves and send it back to Cole and Graves.
We hear the familiar sounds of AJ Styles' theme music and out comes "The Phenomenal One" to kick today's show off with one of the three main events. He settles in the ring and fireworks explode. His music dies down and he awaits the arrival of his opponent.
A video package airs between Styles and Seth "Freakin'" Rollins' entrances. It wraps up and we see Styles pacing in the ring and looking ready to make history as the inaugural champion. Now the familiar sounds of Seth Rollins entrance tune hits.
The fans start warming up their pipes and belting out the "WHOA-OH-OH's!" as the conductor himself, "The Visionary" Seth Rollins emerges and begins leading the fans in song as he heads to the squared circle. Rollins is wearing an insanely goofy leopard print fluffy shoulder throw. Cool stuff as always here.
Now the bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with our first match of the evening. The fans break out in a loud "AJ Styles!" chant. The two circle each other. Styles goes to lock up but Rollins side-steps him and plays conductor to the fans who start loudly singing again.
Styles ambushes Rollins as he gets too comfortable playing conductor. He blasts Rollins and then sends him crashing out to the floor. We see #WWENOC is trending number one in the United States already as Rollins re-enters the ring.
Rollins slaps a side head lock on Styles and then the two hit the ropes. Rollins leap-frogs Styles and does the flutter-fingers cocky gesture that Scott Hall would often do in his heydey. The action spills out to the floor and Rollins drops Styles with a running knee.
Back in the ring, Rollins looks for a Stomp but Styles avoids it. Styles takes over after that and starts to settle into a comfortable offensive lead. He takes it to Rollins with a mat-based attack as the fans try and rally behind "The Visionary."
We see Rollins fire up from there and he takes over after launching Styles face-first into the middle turnbuckle. The fans start to sing again as Rollins takes it to Styles, knocking him off the top turnbuckle with a single, vicious chop to the chest.
The fans fire up with a loud "AJ Styles! AJ Styles!" chant as the two head to the top-rope together. Rollins looks for a super-plex but Styles fights his way free and the two head back to action on the mat, trading strikes.
Styles starts to take over again after a nice flurry of back-and-forth action, which saw each hitting some big spots. Styles hits a moonsault into a Scorpion Death Drop for a close near fall. Styles sits Rollins on the top rope but Rollins ends up countering.
Rollins goes for the cover but Styles kicks out. Rollins hoists Styles up and hits a Buckle Bomb in the corner. He heads to the top-rope and follows that up with a frog splash for a pin fall attempt. Styles kicks out at two.
Seth looks for a Rude Awakening style neck-breaker but Styles counters into a seated Michinoku Driver for a close near fall attempt. Styles looks for a Styles Clash off the middle ropes but Rollins avoids it. Rollins ends up bringing Styles off the ropes the hard way in an explosive high spot.
As the action continues, we see Styles start to take over. Styles gets Rollins outside the ring ropes and looks for a suplex. He ends up leaping up in the suplex position, slamming Rollins down with a suplex onto the hard part of the ring apron as he lands on his feet on the floor at ringside.
Back in the ring, we see Styles looking for a Phenomenal Forearm. Rollins avoids it and Styles crashes and burns on the floor. Rollins hits a suicide dive and splashes onto Styles on the floor, but immediately clutches his knee in pain.
Styles fights back into the offensive driver's seat and slaps a calf-crusher on Rollins in the middle of the ring. Rollins crawls to the ropes and again Styles pulls him back and slaps the calf-crusher on the leg of Rollins that he just tweaked on the landing after the suicide dive.
The two each fire up a few times and Styles looks for the Styles Clash to finisher him off, but Rollins kicks out. Styles connects with a Pedigree on Rollins for another close near fall attempt. Styles looks disappointed in his inability to finish Styles off while his head is shown bleeding.
Styles looks for a Phenomenal Forearm as Rollins was getting up, but Rollins gets up and connects with a super kick as Styles was on his way down. Rollins goes for a Stomp as Styles was getting up, but Rollins leg gave out on him.
Rollins hits a Pedigree and his leg looks worse for wears again. He toughs his way through it and connects with a Stomp for the pin fall victory. Seth "Freakin'" Rollins is the first-ever World Heavyweight Champion. After the match, Triple H presents Rollins with the title in a big "moment."
Winner and NEW World Heavyweight Champion: Seth "Freakin'" Rollins
Trish Stratus vs. Becky Lynch
A video package airs to get us ready for the second match of the evening. We it wraps up, we return back live inside the Jeddah SuperDome where the iconic theme music for WWE Hall of Fame legend Trish Stratus hits.
"Thank you, Trish!"
Out she comes and she makes her long walk to the ring to a ton of boos from the Jeddah audience in attendance. She settles in the ring as Graves and Cole bicker on commentary and then her music wraps up.
The theme for Becky Lynch hits and the crowd explodes as "The Man" emerges to a ton of smoke and pyro. She makes her way down to the ring to a ton of cheers from the Saudi fans inside the Jeddah SuperDome.
The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one. We see Lynch immediately charge across the ring and start teeing off on Trish. After Lynch works Trish over for a bit, the action spills out to the floor where Trish takes over.
Stratus rams Lynch into the steel ring steps and then into the ring apron before rolling her back in the ring and kicking her hard in the gut. Trish controls the action in the offensive driver's seat with a slow pace for a few minutes.
From there, Lynch speeds things up as she fires up and begins taking over as the crowd rallies behind her. Lynch connects with a big leg drop off the middle ropes. She follows that up with a baseball slide to knock Trish out to the floor. She leaps off the ring apron with a clothesline on the floor.
At ringside, we see Trish launch Lynch into the steel ring post face-first. This allows Trish to take over. Back in the ring, Trish connects with a big spinebuster on Lynch for a close near fall. Trish takes Lynch off the ropes with a head-scissors take down into another near fall attempt.
A small "Thank you, Trish!" breaks out, which Cole acknowledges on the broadcast. Trish looks for her Stratusfaction bulldog off the ropes but Lynch avoids it.

"The Man" drags Trish to the center of the ring still in the hold. Stratus eventually drags her way over to the bottom rope to free herself from the hold. The action spills out to the floor where Lynch leaps off the ring steps into a kick from Trish.
Back in the ring, Trish connects with a Chick-Kick for a close near fall. Trish grabs Becky by the hair and trash talks her before slamming the back of her heard into the mat repeatedly. She does it too many times as Lynch counters her into the Dis-Arm-Her arm-bar.
Trish eventually escapes and the two grab each other's hair and start hockey swinging at each other. Trish looks for another Chick Kick but Lynch avoids it and connects with a Man-Handle-Slam for a close near fall.
Out on the floor, Trish escapes Lynch's clutches and heads back in the ring. Out from under the ring comes Zoey Stark who hits her with her Z-360 finisher and sends her back into the ring where Trish hits her Stratus-faction finisher for the win. Trish and Stark head to the back together laughing as Lynch remains in the ring covered in blood.
Winner: Trish Stratus
WWE Intercontinental Championship
GUNTHER (C) vs. Mustafa Ali
The video package for our next match of the evening airs to set the stage for our second championship bout of the evening, as the Intercontinental Title will be on-the-line in our third bout here at Night of Champions.
We return live and the theme for Mustafa Ali hits and out he comes to a rock star reception in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. He settles in the ring as the already crazy-loud pop gets even louder.
His theme dies down and then the lights go out as the drumroll begins. "Ladies and gentlemen, I demand all your gratitude for your WWE Intercontinental Champion -- GUNTHER!" Ludwig Kaiser and Giovanni Vinci wrap up their intro and out comes the reigning and defending I-C champ.
Now the bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one. Michael Cole sings the praises of GUNTHER for having the most vicious chops in WWE. The two lock-up to get this one started and GUNTHER easily shucks Ali down to the mat.
Ali tries chopping away at the much larger GUNTHER with kicks and his quickness, but GUNTHER begins manhandling him. He chops him once and we get replays of it because of how hard it was. The champ locks Ali in a Boston crab.
GUNTHER lets the hold go and begins beating Ali down some more. Ali goes to springboard off the ropes but GUNTHER blasts him in mid-air and knocks him out to the floor. At ringside, GUNTHER rams Ali into the ring apron and re-enters the ring to pose as the fans boo.
Mustafa catches GUNTHER with a kick outside the ring ropes on the ring apron. He floats through the ropes and leaps up for a backwards neck-breaker that grounds the big man. Ali fires up thinking this is his opportunity but GUNTHER recovers and stops him in the corner.
Ali flips over and walks across the ring with GUNTHER before connecting with a power bomb. He heads to the top-rope and connects with a 450 splash for a super close pin fall attempt that the Saudi crowd lit up for.
The I-C champ recovers again and runs through Ali with a pair of vicious clotheslines. He goes for the cover thinking it's over, but Ali somehow finds a way to kick out before the count of three. Ali tries firing up again for another 450 splash but misses and GUNTHER rums him over and connects with a power bomb for the win.
Winner and STILL WWE Intercontinental Champion: GUNTHER
Kevin Owens Gives Sami Zayn A Pep Talk
We shoot backstage after the match and see Kevin Owens. The crowd explodes. Sami Zayn enters the camera shot and the crowd completely and totally loses their minds. Zayn begins talking but the crowd is so loud in the background you can barely hear him.
Zayn talks about how crazy things have been since WrestleMania. He starts talking in a way where he sounds like their tag title reign could end tonight. Owens cuts him off and asks why he's talking like that.
Owens gets fired up when he talks about them beating a better team to get the titles. He says he didn't come this far to lose his titles. Zayn nods and Owens tries seeing if he got through to him but Zayn doesn't look fully convinced.
Raw Women's Championship
Bianca Belair (C) vs. Asuka
LA Knight is shown in the crowd to a huge pop and then we are sent to a video package showing WWE's work with Make-A-Wish Foundation in Saudi Arabia this week. Now Michael Cole and Corey Graves set up the video package for our next match.
On that note, we are shown the events that led up to tonight's WrestleMania rematch between Bianca Belair and Asuka for the Raw Women's Championship. When the package wraps up, Cole narrates the camera shot that pans around some of the sights and sounds of City Walk in Jeddah.
Back live inside the Jeddah SuperDome, the familiar sounds of Asuka's theme hits and out comes "The Empress of Tomorrow" as Cole and Corey Graves talk about her recent change in personality since the last time these two met at WrestleMania.
The ring announcer gives this title bout the formal pre-match ring introductions for the champion and the challenger. The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one. These two immediately collide and start duking it out.
Belair connects with a big drop kick and then kips up for a pony-tail swing to the crowd. Asuka rolls out of the ring and Belair hits a flip into a kick that knocks "The Empress of Tomorrow" out to the floor at ringside. Asuka yanks Belair out by the pony tail and rams her into the steel steps.
Back in the ring, we see the demented clown Asuka go on a lengthy run in the offensive driver's seat. Belair fires up for a moment or two, but ultimately Asuka remains in control. She flashes an evil smile after every big move she connects with.
Asuka catches Belair off the ropes and looks for the Asuka lock but Belair avoids it. The two trade multiple pin attempts and then Asuka blasts Belair with a big kick that slows down "The EST of WWE."
The two fight out to the floor and begin trading shots, ignoring the ref as she begins counting them both out. They each re-enter the ring before getting counted out and the back-and-forth brawl continues.
In the corner, the ref tries breaking them up but they continue trading shots with her in the middle. Asuka tries to mist Belair in the eyes but Belair avoids it. Asuka counters a move attempted by Belair and slaps the Asuka Lock on. Belair stacks Asuka and powers her up for a power bomb that frees her.
Asuka sprays the mist in her own hands. Belair hoists her up for the K.O.D. but away from the refs line of vision, we see Asuka rub her fingers that she misted on, right in the eyes of Belair. This leads to Asuka getting the victory, stealing the title from Belair in the process.
Winner and NEW Raw Women's Champion: Asuka
SmackDown Women's Champion
Rhea Ripley (C) vs. Natalya
After a quick commercial break, we shoot back live inside the Jeddah SuperDome and we hear the iconic Hart family guitar screech as the familiar sounds of Natalya's theme hits. Out comes the women's wrestling legend.
Michael Cole wishes Nattie a happy birthday as the veteran of the women's division in WWE heads to the ring for our next title contest of the evening, stopping to post with fans for selfies a few times along the way.
With Nattie settled in the ring, her music dies down. We then hear "THIS IS MY BRUTALITY!" as the theme for "Mami" plays and out comes SmackDown Women's Champion Rhea Ripley accompanied by Dominik Mysterio.
The Judgment Day duo head to the ring to a chorus of boos from the fans inside the Jeddah SuperDome. She settles into the ring and then the ring announcer handles the formal ring introductions for the champion and the challenger.
Now the bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one. Dom distracts Nattie straight out of the gate, saying she doesn't stand a chance. As she bickered with him, Rhea attacks her from behind to jump off to the early offensive lead.
The action quickly spills out to the floor where Rhea starts bashing Natalya's dome off the commentary desk and then the ring steps. Nattie immediately starts selling the effects of her right knee. Back in the ring, Ripley hoists Nattie up and connects with a Rip-Tide for a quick squash match victory.
Winner and STILL SmackDown Women's Champion: Rhea Ripley
Byron Saxton Talks To World Heavyweight Champion Seth "Freakin'" Rollins
Now we shoot backstage where Byron Saxton is standing by with his special guest, the new World Heavyweight Champion Seth "Freakin'" Rollins. Rollins does his sinister laugh and tells Saxton to introduce him as the champ again -- but to put some stank on it this time.
Saxton obliges and then Rollins talks about how good it feels to be the World Heavyweight Champion. He says it feels right. Saxton asks how he's looking to follow this up. Rollins says he'll be on Raw on Monday night and every Monday night going forward. The only difference is he's got world championship things on his mind.
Brock Lesnar vs. Cody Rhodes
It's time for our second bout in tonight's triple-main event. The co-headline of WWE Night of Champions will be the "fight" between Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar. The video package airs now to set the tone for our second-to-last match of the show.
After the package wraps up, we return live inside the Jeddah SuperDome where the iconic sounds of Brock Lesnar's theme hits and out comes "The Beast Incarnate" looking ready for a fight, completely decked out in what he'd wear to the Octagon for a UFC bout.
He settles in the ring and his music fades down. The entrance tune for Cody Rhodes hits and out comes "The American Nightmare" to an enormous reaction from the Saudi fans, who are shown on-camera singing along with his entire theme as he heads to the ring with fireworks and pyro exploding.
Michael Cole explains the titanium cast Cody is wearing on his arm as a result of his arm being broken by Lesnar during the build-up to this highly-anticipated showdown between "The American Nightmare" and "The Beast Incarnate."
Lesnar looks at Cody's arm in a cast and starts smiling. The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one. Cody looks at Brock smiling and defiantly says, "You wanna fight?!" And Brock begins chasing him out of the ring and around the ringside area.
Back in the ring, Lesnar finally gets his massive paws on Cody. He begins Donkey Kong'ing him all over the ring with various suplexes, many of which Cody lands right on his injured arm during. Brock goes to pick Cody up and Cody starts blasting Brock over-and-over again with the titanium cast on his arm.
He knocks Lesnar out to the floor and then hits the ropes to build up a full head of steam. He dives through the ropes and blasts Brock with the cast on the way down. He leaps off the commentary desk and blasts him with the cast again.
We see the action resume in the ring again and once more Cody uses the cast as a weapon, leaping off the ropes like he'd do for a double axe-handle. He follows that up with a Disaster Kick and a Cody Cutter for a close near fall attempt.
Cody hits a Cross Rhodes and immediately sells his arm. The camera shows a close-up shot of a shocked looking Lesnar who walks into a second Cross Rhodes. Cody yells at Brock and waits for him to get up, before looking for a third one. Brock counters and snatches up a Kimura.
Lesnar hits the mat while having Cody locked in a Kimura. Brock screams and cranks away. Cody tries turning it into a pin like he did at Backlash, but Brock kicks out and starts cranking away on the arm some more. Cody screams in pain and eventually passes out from the pain.
He comes to just as the ref checks him, but he's still very much trapped as Brock cranks even more on it. Cody finally grabs the bottom rope and the ref makes Brock let the hold go. Brock picks Cody up and looks for an F-5 but Cody counters and hits another Cross-Rhodes. Brock kicks out of the follow-up pin attempt.
Rhodes starts using the cast as a weapon again but Brock ends up snatching him up and this time connecting with an F-5. He goes for the cover after a few seconds and Cody kicks out. The fans break out in a "This is Awesome" chant as the two slowly get back to their feet.
Once again we see Lesnar snatch Cody's broken arm up and lock him in a Kimura. He cranks away it and rolls through to sit on top and add some torque to it. This time Cody passes out due to the pain again. The bell sounds and Brock wins but he keeps the hold on. He cranks a bit more and eventually lets go.
Winner: Brock Lesnar
Undisputed WWE Tag-Team Championships
Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (C) vs. Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa
After the co-main event wraps up, we see a video for the WWE Money In The Bank 2023 pay-per-view in London on July 1. From there, we head to a quick commercial break. Cole and Graves hype MITB qualifying matches on Raw and SmackDown next week as we return in the SuperDome.
The two then hype Roman Reigns' 1,000 day championship milestone celebration for next Friday night and then we are sent into the extensive video package for our third of three main events at WWE Night Of Champions 2023.
With that said, we see the turmoil within The Bloodline between Roman Reigns and The Usos, as well as the Solo Sikoa factor. The stories leading up to tonight's main event for the Undisputed Tag-Team Champions, with Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn defending against Reigns and Sikoa.
We return live and the theme for Roman Reigns' hits and everyone in Jeddah stands up to acknowledge their "Tribal Chief." Out comes the 1,000-day Universal Champion and leader of The Bloodline, accompanied by "The Wise Man" Paul Heyman and his tag-team partner for tonight, Solo Sikoa.
The challengers head to the ring for what will be our final match of the WWE Night Of Champions 2023 premium live event. The two take their time settling into the squared circle. Michael Cole reminds us that Roman has dedicated this match to his family, The Wild Samoans.
Kevin Owens theme hits and out comes "The Prize Fighter" and one-half of the Undisputed WWE Tag-Team Champions, who only gets 5-10 seconds for his entrances these days. Poor fella. The catchy-ass entrance tune for Sami Zayn hits and after a delay, Sami comes out in the Saudi garb looking ready for war,
The crowd goes absolutely and completely bonkers and Sami gets emotional as he begins to head to the ring along with Owens. It's main event time here at WWE Night Of Champions 2023 inside a wild Jeddah SuperDome in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
After the upbeat Mighty Mighty Bostones-sounding tune fades down, the bell sounds and the ring announcer handles the formal pre-match ring introductions for this championship contest. The challengers and champions are introduced, with Paul Heyman handling the intro for the former.
Sami cuts off the ring announcer and in the native language, handles what I'm assuming is the intro for his team (there isn't any translation, much like the promos in San Juan during WWE Backlash in Puerto Rico). The crowd went nuts for this, as you'd expect.
Finally, the bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with our third of the triple-main events. The Undisputed WWE Tag-Team Championships are on-the-line. Starting things off for their respective teams are Roman and Kevin.
Cole informs us 12 of the top 15 hash-tags trending in the United States right now on Twitter are related to the WWE Night Of Champions 2023 premium live event. Cole refers to Jimmy and Jey Uso as the two pillars of The Bloodline while hyping up the start of this one. Coincidence? Make sure to join us here on Sunday night for live AEW Double or Nothing results coverage, featuring the AEW Championship main event with the Four Pillars.
Owens ends up opting out of starting this one off, as when he and Reigns get ready to lock up, the fans chant for Sami and he obliges, reaching back and tagging him in. The former "Honorary Uce" enters the ring to start things off for the defending champs.
The fans go completely insane with loud pro-Zayn chants as he and "The Tribal Chief" circle each other before finally getting this match going. Reigns is yelling about how no one would know who Sami is without him. Reigns decides to tag out before doing anything, too. He tags in Solo and the fans boo.
We see Roman at ringside yelling with Paul Heyman before turning his attention back to Sami in the ring. "I should've never let you in!" He turns to the crowd and starts lambasting them as well. Zayn and Solo finally lock up to get this one started.
Solo begins tearing into Sami early on as the fans boo. Owens tags in but doesn't fare much better, as we see Solo taking it to "The Prize Fighter" as well. Owens takes over and goes to hit Reigns with a cheap shot but Reigns avoided it by dropping down to the floor.
Owens goes to work on Solo and then gets ambushed from behind by Roman. Roman distracts Sami and Solo starts beating him down as he is now the legal man in the ring. The crowd jumps all over Roman's case as Sikoa takes it to Zayn before tieing up the ref so Roman can get in a cheap shot.
Now that Sikoa has slowed the pace down and settled into a very comfortable offensive lead, Reigns tags in and starts taking over. He beats down Zayn while yelling at him all along, and taunting the fans as they loudly, loudly boo him.
We see some close calls from both teams, as Owens finally gets the tag from Zayn, who finally makes it to his corner. Owens comes in hot but ends up getting run over as well. Reigns hits a big Superman punch for a close near fall and then starts stalking and taunting / talking trash to Owens as the fans loudly boo.
Owens hits a Stunner as Reigns was looking for a Spear. The Stunner sends him flying backwards, where he bounces off the middle ropes on the way down, as Owens hits the ropes across the ring. Owens charges at Reigns but Reigns comes off the middle ropes with a Spear on instinct that turns "The Prize Fighter" inside-out.
Zayn and Solo tag in and start trading shots, with Sami getting the better of the exchange. He sends "The Enforcer" of The Bloodline out to the floor and then hits a crazy dive over the ropes, splashing onto Sikoa on the floor. Back in the ring, Zayn hits a Blue Thunder Bomb for a close near fall.
Sami stalks Solo and waits for him to get up so he can hit his kick in the corner finisher. He ends up running into a super kick from Solo instead. Sami fights back and hits an exploder suplex on Solo into the corner. He follows that up with his kick in the corner finisher. He goes for the cover but Reigns breaks it up.
Reigns ends up spearing the referee on accident. Sami catches Reigns with a Superman punch. He then backs into the corner and mocks Roman's war scream before trying to finish him off with a spear of his own.
Reigns ends up spearing Sami instead. Owens hits Roman with a spear and then takes him to the floor and bounces his head off the table repeatedly, before sending him into the steel steps. He then starts clearing off both commentary tables.
Owens picks up Roman and heads to the two cleared announce tables but out of nowhere The Usos appear. Jimmy and Jey begin beating down Owens. They turn the commentary desk over onto Owens and then hit the ring where they wait for Sami to get up.
They each super kick the crap out of him separately. They go to hit a stereo super kick and Sami ducks and they blast Sikoa. As they do, Roman just recovered on the floor and saw this. He looks shocked. He enters the ring and gets in The Usos' faces.
He shoves Jimmy's face back real hard again. Jey tries reasoning with him. Roman yells back at him and then shoves his face, too. He shoves it again and then turns around into a super kick from Jimmy. The crowd goes wild. Corey Graves exclaims, "What did you do?!?!" in an awesome moment.
Jey yells at Jimmy, asking why he did that. Jey goes to help Roman but Jimmy yanks him around and says to listen to him, because he's gonna do what Jey should've done a long time ago. He blasts Roman with another super kick.
He yells at Jey to come with him. He says I'm your brother, not him. Jey keeps going in Roman's direction but Jimmy pushes him and has him leave with him. The crowd gives them a standing ovation as they head to the back. Powerful stuff.
Back in the ring,. Owens hits Solo with a stunner. Zayn follows up with his kick in the corner finisher. He goes for the cover but the original ref is still down. A second ref runs in and makes the count. Zayn and Owens win and retain their titles as the crowd goes wild.
Great, great main event. The Usos are shown still walking back up the ramp surveying things. We hear Jey repeatedly asking Jimmy, "What'd you do??" Roman is seated in disgust in a scene similar to John Cena losing to The Rock at WrestleMania, only he looks super pissed as he's seated instead of super disappointed.
Zayn yells down at Roman, "I told you ... you can't have them!" Michael Cole wraps up the show, which goes off the air as Reigns heads back up the ramp in disgust. Thanks for joining us!
