Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns vs Kevin Owens vs Big Cass - Fata-4-Way Elimination Match for the WWE Universal Championship

The much awaited WWE Universal Championship match is up next. Who will win it and become the second WWE Universal Champion? Will it be the predictable choice - Rollins or Reigns, or something unexpected - Kevin Owens? One thing we all probably know is that Big Cass isn't going home with the belt.

Either way, this one will be good.

Roman Reigns is out first with a wall of boos. However, to his defence, there are almost as many cheers as boos. But, it sounds like the audios being messed with a little as the audience sound suddenly got drowned out. Is this a sign that Roman is winning?

Rollins gets a huge pop as he comes out next. He's definitely the favourite to win today.

Surprisingly, Big Cass gets the biggest pop of the four competitors. He's definitely the wildcard for today's match. Enzo is out with him and they do their usual shtick. The Certified-G's are in the HOUSE! Cass says that he'll win the Universal Championship and shock the world.

Brace yourselves folks. We're in for one hell of a ride.

We start off as KO rolls out of the ring immediately to chill on the outside next to Foley and Steph. Cass and Reigns throw Rollins out and face off. As they face off, KO and Rollins come back in and attack the duo.

KO and Reigns go at it on the outside as Rollins tries to suplex Big Cass inside the ring. Bad idea from Rollins as Cass easily counters. Reigns rolls KO into the ring and stomps a mudhole into him in the corner.

Rollins gets sent to the outside as Cass and Reigns face off again. Reigns laughs in Cass' face and punches him. He then dodges a clothesline to dish out one of his own. Reigns then goes for a Superman Punch but Cass counters with the most devastating looking BIG BOOT that I've ever seen and they tumble over the top rope.

Both men are on the outside as Rollins hits them with a suicide dive. KO then plants Rollins face first into the barricade. Roman follows this up with a suicide dive of his own on KO and Cass as we head for another commercial break. I miss the Raw's back in the day when the main event didn't have commercial breaks.

BIg Cass and KO are going at it on the outside as we come back. Owens lays out Cass before screaming at Foley. The momentary distraction lets Rollins take the chance and take KO out.

Rollins rolls Cass into the ring and has him in a headlock and KO rolls back in and walks over. With Rollins busy with containing Cass in a headlock, KO straight up punches him in the face.

KO has Cass in the corner and sets him up for the cannonball. However, Seth grabs his leg and pulls him to the outside and sends him crashing into the barricade. He comes back into the ring and mocks Cass. However, Reigns takes advantage and clotheslines the hell out of Rollins. He then clotheslines KO. As Reigns celebrates, Cass hits him with another vicious Big Boot.

He then clears the ring before delivering a Big Boot to KO. Rollins rolls him up for the near fall. WHAT A MATCH!

Reigns hits Cass with a Superman Punch out of nowhere, following which he goes for a spear to Rollins. Rollins dodges and sends Reigns crashing into the corner and he then gives Cass a Superkick. KO goes to the top rope and lands a huge frog splash on the 7-footer. 1-2-3!

Big Cass is eliminated

As we come back from commercial we get an epic spot from the three remaining competitors. Powerbomb from Reigns to KO who has Rollins in a suplex. Reigns then covers both Rollins and KO for nearfalls.

Roman has Seth in the corner and he pounds Seth. Seth tries to hit back with a spin kick but Roman dodges it and hits back. Roman then goes for a Superman Punch which Rollins dodges. Undeterred, Roman goes for another Superman Punch which Rollins counters into a Falcoln Arrow.

As Owens goes for a third Canonball Roman counters with a Superman punch for the 2-count. He sets Owens up for the spear but KO counters with a superkick.

Owens foolows up by trying to set Reigns up for the Pop-up Powerbomb but he gets a Superman Punch for his troubles.

All three competitors are outsid as TRIPLE H INTERFERES! Triple H Perdigrees Roman on the outside and Roman is OUT!

Triple H gestures to Kevin Owens to covers Rollins. KO goes for the cover. 1 - 2 - 3!!!!!!!

Seth Rollins is pinnerd and KEVIN OWENS IS THE NEW WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPION!

Shocking way for the match to end as the era of Owens begins. The crowd chants "You deserve it" to Owens. 

Welcome to the Kevin Owens show.

Darren Young vs Titus o' Neil


The match no one wants to see is up next, Darren Young taking on Titus O' Neil. Both competitors came out to crickets from the crowd and clearly this is the toilet-break match before the main event.

The match starts off as the two exchange blows before Titus throws Young to the outside. Titus is the worst heel and actor EVER! His trash talking is absolutely the worst and he just repeatedly yells "You owe me" at Darren Young.

Young finally tries to hit back with forearms but Titus dishes out a sweet Pumphandle Slam followed by a chin lock and a clothesline.

Darren Young then rolls up Titus for the 3-count in the most underwhelming finish ever.

THIS MATCH WAS TERRIBLE.

Darren Young def. Titus O' Neil

Titus attacks both Darren Young and Bob Backlund after the match and laid both of them out. He continues to yell "You owe me" as he wals away. Terrible.

Owens is out next to a massive pop from the audience. He looks fired up and clearly realizes that this is the biggest match of his career. I can't be unbiased today, I want a KO win.

Stephanie McMahon is out next to confront Paul Heyman about Brock Lesnar's actions at SummerSlam. She comes out and says that no one messed with her family and there would be consequences. However, she gets interrupted by Paul Heyman who respectfully asks Stephanie to indulge him.

She has none of it and asks Paul to stop beating about the bush and get in the ring. The crowd chants ECW and CM Punk as the segments gets under way.

Heyman tells Steph that when Brock destroyed Orton, Raw won SummerSlam. However, he admits that Brock crossed the line when he F5-ed Shane McMahon. He says that he dropped on his knees to beg Lesnar to stay off Shane and he was here to pay the $500 fine that had been levied on Brock.

Heyman counts the one dollar bills but Steph slaps the money away. Stephanie says that Brock might have provided value to Raw but Heyman didn't and she would teach him a lesson for patronizing her.

He says that a storm was coming and Brock was that storm. Heyman says that he realizes Steph has to answer to the board of directors. He says that he and Brock understands that Stephanie is the heir to the WWE throne and he apologizes and begs for forgiveness for Brock's actions.

Stephanie accepts the apology and walks away.

Braun Strowman vs Americo

Another squash match is up next. Braun Strowman takes on Americo who doesn't even get a chance to explain why he has a chance against Braun Strowman.
Americo's tiny compared to Strowman who delivers knee after knee to Americo before charging him into the corner repeatedly. He follows it up by planting Americo face first into the mat for the pinfall.

This one didn't even last a minute.

Dana Brooke and The Club come out next and they look great together. Dana can definitely be the link missing from taking The Club to the next level. Hopefully, this is a permanent pairing.

Sami Zayn vs Jinder Mahal


Sami Zayn is out next to a raucous reaction from the live crowd. Jinder Mahal, of all people, is waiting in the ring for him.

Sami starts off in a flurry and Jinder has a hard time keeping up with Zayn. Jinder pokes Sami in the eye for the advantage but Zayn hits back with a spin kick.

WWE are still making a deal about Sami's kayfabe ankle injury last week as Jinder works on it. Jinder hits Sami with a running dropkick to the head. Sami gets back up and hits Jinder with a clothesline followed an exploder suplex to the corner. 

He follows it up with a Helluva Kick. This one is over. As easy as ABC for Sami tonight.

They say that after putting the Dudley's out of their misery last week, The New Day are up next. Surprisingly, Dana Brooke joins The Club for the segment. Well this is new, and very VERY interesting.
