WWE News: Roman Reigns captures first Intercontinental Title on RAW to become Grand Slam Champion
Roman Reigns just made history.
It happened on the night after Survivor Series and there wasn't anything The Miz could do to stop it. Roman Reigns wanted a singles title because Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose said they were going after the Raw Tag Team Championships once again.
This idea is strange, in theory, because couldn't The Shield just use the Freebird Rules like The News Day did and 3MB would have if they had won the tag team titles?
Regardless of motivation, reason, or explanation, Roman Reigns was awarded an Intercontinental Title Match against The Miz to close out the Raw after Survivor Series. The Houston crowd incredibly supportive of The Miz with plenty of "Miz is awesome" chants throughout the night as The Miz entertained them thoroughly.
But all of the fan support in the world couldn't stop Roman Reigns from landing a spear and ending The Miz's amazing title run. Truth be told, The Miz might have established himself as one of the greatest Intercontinental Champions of all-time during this run with the title. But now it looks like The Miztourage will be following around an ex-champion (until The Miz can arrange to pick the title back up).
It might have been a sad moment for the A-Lister, but it was a career-defining for Roman Reigns. As he held his new singles title up high after the match, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose celebrated with their fellow Hound of Justice.
This victory puts Roman Reigns in some pretty impressive company as well, seeing how he is now a Grand Slam Champion. The The Big Dog is now in the company of names like Eddie Guerrero, Daniel Bryan, The Miz, Chris Jericho, and Dean Ambrose who are all WWE Grand Slam Champions as well.
