#4 Roman Reigns is still unstoppable after WWE TLC

In the build up to WWE TLC, Kevin Owens produced some of the best promo work of his entire career.

Owens' segments alongside Paul Heyman on the SmackDown post-show, Talking Smack have been exceptional. The pair's interactions have helped tell the story of Owen's desire to be a consistent top-tier Superstar for WWE.

"KO" last held the Universal Championship in 2017, but he tried to dethrone current champion Roman Reigns at WWE TLC.

Owens' intensity on the microphone carried over into the match itself, as he attacked Reigns from the crowd before the start of their Tables, Ladders and Chairs bout.

Reigns' cousin, Jey Uso got involved in the match early and often, so Owens to had battle against the odds throughout the contest.

Owens had his chance to secure the victory, though, when he hit Reigns with a Pop-Up Powerbomb through a table. Unfortunately for Owens, Uso prevented him from climbing the ladder and retrieving the title.


This distraction eventually allowed Reigns to recover. He hit a low blow on Owens before the challenger could grab the championship. Reigns then took Owens out with a guillotine choke on the ladder. Finally, the champion had all the time he needed to unhook the title to win the match.

The nature of the finish means that Owens has a strong argument for a rematch following WWE TLC. That opportunity could come at next month's WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view.

The feud between Owens and Reigns made for quality viewing prior to WWE TLC, and it should absolutely continue.
