WWE News: Roman Reigns Faced A Legend After Smackdown Went-Off Air
Roman Reigns has been part of the Superstar Shakeup 2019 changing his home-brand of Monday Night Raw. He was the carrier of the flagship brand of WWE for the past several years since 2013. For the first time in nearly six years, he will have to rebuild himself in a new territory of Smackdown. Also, he will have to fulfill the incredible role played by his predecessor AJ Styles who claimed Smackdown to be his house.
The Big Dog made a hell of a debut on last night at the very end of Smackdown. He floored Elias with a Superman Punch and dropped The Boss with the same move to declare the show as his new yard. The fans received another special treat to end the show when Roman Reigns uncorked a spear tearing Elias into halves.
His job was not over for the night as he competed once the show went off the air. Roman Reigns faced Randy Orton in a mega-match in the dark segment of this week’s Smackdown. It was a rematch from Summerslam 2014 exclusively in-store for the live audience at the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

After a back and forth going, Roman Reigns received the upper-hand sending Randy Orton for a retreat who never came back to the ring. It pulled off a bizarre end to the big match. Here’s the update from wrestlingINC.com,
“The dark main event after tonight’s WWE 205 Live tapings at the Bell Centre in Montreal saw Roman Reigns and Randy Orton go at it with no official winner being announced. The finish saw Orton hit the draping DDT and then miss the RKO. Reigns followed up with a Superman Punch and a Spear. Orton then rolled out of the ring and Reigns’ music played as if he were the winner. That ended the show, according to correspondent Travis Bledsoe.”
It was an intended finish from the creative team of Smackdown who did want to protect both the superstars, for now. It’s a fresh start for every superstar following Wrestlemania 35 and neither of them should have digested a pinfall. Hence, the finish was assumable. Both the big names are part of the Tuesday Night Show. Hence, it should not be the last time we have seen Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton.
