4 WWE Superstars who have defeated Roman Reigns clean
Roman Reigns has had quite a career thus far, and he's only been on the main roster for five years. He's been a cornerstone of WWE since the day he first appeared, starting with The Shield and running roughshod through any and every tag team and stable that challenged them.
Once Seth Rollins broke the group apart, he went on to have an incredible singles career that continues to this day. A career that has featured losses that are few and far between, the Big Dog typically comes out on top in most of the matches he's in.
But there have been a few exceptions. And no, we're not talking about matches where Reigns loses thanks to factors outside of the ring.
This countdown is going to focus on something that has only happened a handful of times. We're going to list four instances when Roman Reigns lost cleanly in one-on-one singles matches.
#4 Cesaro in Florida Championship Wrestling 2011
Yeah, we really had to scrape the bottom of the barrel here. Roman Reigns simply doesn't lose that much in one-on-one bouts. So in order to complete this list, we had to go all the way back to when Reigns started his career as Leakee, Florida Championship Wrestling.
Reigns lost several singles matches in FCW, which is no surprise since they were his first matches in his wrestling career. He lost to the likes of Leo Kruger aka Adam Rose, Damien Sandow, and Vance Archer, among others. But the only active WWE superstar to beat Reigns in FCW is none other than current Raw tag team champion, Cesaro.
The match took place on November 3, 2011, and as per ProFightDB, the match ended with Cesaro winning via pinfall. And there's no reason to assume it involved any sort of shenanigans, since Reigns losing was apparently par for the course at this early stage of his career.
