It was a monumental day for WWE as the draft returned after three years and the futures of many Superstars were decided tonight!
Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns
Rollins went for a headlock right off the bat and the Big Dog took him down off an Irish whip. They both countered each other early on before Rollins was caught with a clothesline and was sent outside. They both tried to hit a vertical suplex on each other but failed. Rollins ate a sit-up powerbomb for a two count off a reversal.
Roman missed the Superman Punch and took a couple of Suicide Dives into the announce table. Rollins hit the frog splash for a near fall. Rollins hit the buckle bomb and Roman hit the Superman Punch for another near-fall. Reigns went for a spear but Rollins reversed with a Pedigree.
Rollins was setting up for the stomp when the ring went dark and Bray Wyatt appeared through the ring and dragged Rollins into the bottom through a hole in the mat. There was smoke coming out of the ring and Rollins resurfaced before Wyatt stuck his head through but then reappeared on the stage!
