The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was not accompanied by The Usos, Sami Zayn or Paul Heyman for his match against Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle. The commentary team had noted that The Usos weren’t medically cleared to travel after they were destroyed by The Scottish Warrior “last night” during a pre-taped episode of SmackDown.
It has been noted WWE’s explanation was an attempt to sell the beat down on SmackDown. In reality, Jimmy has a pending DUI charge so he cannot travel outside the United States. Jimmy Uso’s DUI situation hasn’t gone away, and he must get permission before any big trip.
It is to be also noted that The Usos were also absent during WWE shows in Canada last month for the same reason. Paul Heyman hasn’t been on television since Brock Lesnar destroyed him, so he’s selling that punishment.
Roman Reigns retained the titles against Drew McIntyre
‘The Tribal Chief’ successfully defended his titles after he had help from his family member, Solo Sikoa at Clash At The Castle. During the match, Karrion Kross and Scarlett made their presence felt. However, McIntyre was busy having the brutal battle with Roman Reigns. Later, Austin Theory came out with a referee to cash in his Money in the Bank contract. Theory’s plans failed when he was decked by Tyson Fury. Before Theory could cash in, Fury knocked him out ringside.In the closing moments of the match, NXT standout and The Usos’ younger brother Solo Sikoa made his main roster debut and distracted McIntyre. This helped Reigns to capitalize and pick up the win.
