Roman Reigns took on Rusev for the United States Championship at Clash of Champions and emerged victorious in an enthralling contest. Despite numerous interferences from Rusev’s wife Lana, The Big Dog was still able to hold his own for the win.
Lana, who was present at ringside, constantly interfered in the match before she was forced to leave by the referee when she pulled the referee out as Reigns had pinned Rusev and looked likely to secure the win.
The victory didn’t come easy for the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion as he had to power out of Accolade, while also having to nail two Spears on The Bulgarian Brute before he pinned him for the win. Reigns also became only the third Superstar to power out of Rusev’s submission move – Accolade – after Zack Ryder and who else but John Cena.
