Seth Rollins Legitimately Beat Up By Roman Reigns

WWE Superstar Roman Reigns is certainly one of the top competitors in the company right now and has been on a solid run as the WWE Universal Champion, but he is losing his top spot to two WWE Smackdown women. Roman Reigns successfully defended his WWE Universal Championship against WWE Hall Of Famer Edge and Daniel Bryan in a triple threat match in the main event of Night Two of WrestleMania 37. Roman Reigns might also be losing Paul Heyman eventually. 



Roman Reigns also successfully retained his WWE Universal Championship against Cesaro in the main event of WrestleMania Backlash. Roman Reigns was scheduled to defend his WWE Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio at the WWE Hell In A Cell pay-per-view. However, that match was shifted to a previous episode of Friday Night Smackdown.

Roman Reigns would successfully defend his WWE Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio as well and went on to defeat Edge and John Cena in subsequent title matches at WWE Money In The Bank and WWE SummerSlam respectively. He then retained his title against Finn Balor at WWE Extreme Rules as well. He defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 and became the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion as well. He beat Brock at SummerSlam as well and then defeated Logan Paul at WWE Crown Jewel.

Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Seth Rollins talked about being legitimately beat up by Roman Reigns.

“You had five or ten seconds to blow yourself sky high,” Rollins said about a specific training drill. Up until that point, no one had managed to perfect the grueling task until Rollins and Reigns were placed together. “We both looked at each other from across the ring, and there was this clarity and communication between the two.”

Reigns, though, remembers the incident a little differently. “I beat the hell out of him,” said Reigns. Rollins concedes that “The Tribal Chief” took the pair out of the sticky situation, “Roman knew how to bring it, and he got us out of this drill.”
