The show starts with a graphic in memory of Bruno Sammartino and the roster is on the stage for a ten bell salute and a video package.

Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar make their way to the ring.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Paul Heyman clears his throat before introducing himself and his client through the boos in St. Louis. Paul says he supposes you are bestowing you with your anger because you think he is going to come out here and gloat, don’t you? You think he is out here to say he told you so. You thought they were out here to say that just like Brock conquered the Undertaker’s undefeated streak, just like when Brock Lesnar took John Cena to Suplex City, just like every single time some wannabe tough guy who doesn’t understand when it comes to Brock Lesnar that this is real, just like not one member of that locker room stands any more of a chance than any of the wannabe tough guys in attendance tonight, just like he keeps telling you he does not make predictions, he presents spoilers he will not be gloating.

Paul says Brock Lesnar does not gloat. Brock Lesnar conquers. Paul Heyman gloats all night long. Paul gloats over the fact that Brock used non-PG era elbows to scar up Roman’s face. Paul gloats that Brock took Roman to Suplex City. Paul gloats that Brock hit multiple F5s on Roman to put Roman out to the trash heap. None of this means anything to Brock Lesnar. Brock Lesnar does not dwell on the past, even when the past is only two weeks ago at Wrestlemania. Brock looks forward to the future, especially when the future is this Friday in Saudi Arabia at the Greatest Royal Rumble. When Brock Lesnar, so crazed to be in a UFC, he will get on a private jet and fly across the world to travel to Saudi Arabia to be locked insideof a cage with Roman Reigns.

Paul asks if being in a cage was Roman’s idea? Paul says he is going to smarten everyone up. Brock pinned Roman and WWE had no choice so Roman signs a big, fat beautiful contract with a raise that Brock earned by beating Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania. WWE goes to Brock and says we need the Universal Title defended in Saudi Arabia. Brock said that Roman is breathing so he wants Roman in a fight for the title in a steel cage. You think this is to Roman’s advantage? The odds are more stacked against Roman on Friday. That is not a fact, it is a spoiler.

Brock is going to shred Roman Reigns, piece by piece and limb from limb. Brock will come back as Universal Champion while Roman comes back in many boxes as the victim of the . . .

Roman Reigns’ music interrupts and he makes his way to the stage and then he goes to ringside.

Roman enters the ring and he stares down Brock.

Roman says that Paul is right. He does not know how he is getting back, but he tells St. Louis that he is coming home with that title. You can believe that.

Roman drops the mic and his music plays.

We are back and Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Roman looks around and he says he is here but Brock Lesnar isn’t. Once again, he is going to face Brock Lesnar. It is not going down like it was at Wrestlemania because they are going to be in a steel cage. He will leave Brock in the cage and he will return to Raw as the Full Time Universal Champion. Since tonight is the Superstar Shake Up . . .

Samoa Joe interrupts and he makes his way to the stage.

Joe tells Roman you come out here and you are so quick to brag that you show up for work. Joe says you don’t brag about getting the job done. The fact is you haven’t got the job done and you never will. You talk about this cage match and you are going to become a champion. You are not getting in the ring with a normal superstar. You are getting in there with a beast who has beaten you every time you stepped into the ring with him.

Joe says he almost feels sorry for Roman but he does not know his place around here. You won’t learn until someone puts you down for good. Joe says he comes bearing that sweet mercy. When Brock is done with you in the cage, Joe will put the Big Dog to sleep once and for all. Since you have some bass in your voice, Joe wants to remind Roman of what Brock has done to him and what Joe will do to him.

Roman says that is everything that Brock has done, so why don’t you come down here to see what your lazy fat ass can do.

Joe makes his way to the ring but Joe stops at the bottom of the ramp and decides to go back up the ramp. Joe stops at the top of the ramp and he throws his towel down and goes to the ring, but Joe says he will see Roman at Backlash on his time.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Paul Heyman makes his way to the ring and he has Brock’s title belt with him. Paul says he did not seek your irrelevant opinion or your affirmation. Paul says he is here to deliver a message on behalf of his client. He is here to set the record straight. He is here tonight and he gets to lay this title down in this ring because Brock Lesnar allows him to put his hands on that title. After Brock Lesnar successfully defends that Universal title on April 8th at Wrestlemania against Roman Reigns. If Brock chooses to defend that title at SummerSlam, he will come back on television and he will lay this title down next to the UFC title as well.

Last week, Roman Reigns had a lot to say about Brock Lesnar. He criticized Brock’s schedule. Paul asks Roman what was the biggest victory of your career? It was when you beat the Undertaker last year at Wrestlemania. He says that Roman is one of two to beat Undertaker at Wrestlemania. Did anyone complain about the victory meaning something since Undertaker only wrestled once that year. They did not because that is bulls***. The Undertaker is the Undertaker 365 days a year, so props to you. Brock Lesnar is Brock Lesnar 365 days a year. You are not beating Brock Lesnar.

If Roman Reigns does not like what Paul is saying, Roman Reigns can do something about it next week when he brings out Brock Lesnar. Afa Wrestlemania, you can Sika new one because this one belongs to Brock Lesnar.

Last week, Roman Reigns called Brock Lesnar a bitch. Paul says the title belt is Brock’s bitch. She belongs to Brock Lesnar. Roman Reigns, you are eyeballing Brock’s bitch and you can’t have her. Roman Reigns, you want to be Universal Champion because your family’s bloodline runs through this business. When you are Universal Champion, this is your bloodline and this bloodline is yours to keep. You will have to take the title out of Brock’s hot, competitive fingers. Brock has always wanted to be numbers one. That is not a belt, that is not a strap, that is not a prop. This is proof that you are number one. Proof that you are better than everyone else. It is proof to show your children that you are the top of the card. You are the number one on the face of this planet and everywhere in the universe. It is not how bad you want the title, it is how bad the title wants you.

Here is the sacrifice you have to make. On the Saturday night before Wrestlemania and you get a call that you have to go home because something bad happened to your father. You have to defend the title and then you cannot fly home on a red eye because you need to be on Raw. If you are not needed on Smackdown, then you can go home to be with your family. If you want to be Universal Champion, this title needs you more. You are that title and that title is everything you are.

Next week on Raw, his client will be here and you can say whatever you want to his face. You have learned that you don’t want to shoot on the mic with Paul Heyman and you don’t want to shoot in the ring with the current, reigning Undisputed Champion, Brock Lesnar.

Roman Reigns’ music plays and he shows up on the stage. He makes his way to the ring and he gets in Paul’s face.

Roman says this is what he is talking about. He said a lot of things last week. Some were harsh but they were true. He thought Brock would show up, but he sends Paul for his rebuttal. He says that Brock really is a bitch. Roman asks for Brock to show up. They aren’t asking for much. They are asking that their champion shows up for work. They don’t want Brock to just show up, they want him to want to be here.

Roman says if Brock is going to be in Detroit, Roman says he will be there too. He says that Brock can say whatever he wants to his face but he better not be dressed for a promo segment. He better be dressed for a fight.

We go to credits.

Welcome to WWE Monday Night Raw. There is a recap video of last week’s episode of Raw. Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring. After all of his attacks and after all of his hype, you would think that Samoa Joe would have been ready. When it was time to put up or shut up, Joe was silenced. That is why he is still champion. It isn’t because he is better than Joe, he was fighting for a purpose. He was fighting for Dean Ambrose. Roman says he has a message for everyone. If you mess with any member of the Shield, you mess with all of us. That was last week and it is this week. Jason Jordan interrupts and makes his way to the ring.

Jason says when he watched Roman’s match last week, he got goosebumps. For the first time, he felt like he was part of something meaningful. Roman was right, when you mess with one of us, you mess with all of us. Jason says on behalf of his partner Seth Rollins, you proved that this is your yard. Jason wants to thank Roman.

Roman says that Jason teams with Seth and Roman says that he is The Guy. Jason says they might not be the Shield, but they are pretty good. They might be the most dominant three man group in WWE. Finn Balor, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson make their way to the stage.

Finn says that Jason is excited to be part of something big, but are you really part of the most dominant three man group in WWE? Finn says he was running with Gallows and Anderson for ten years before you knew that Kurt Angle was your dad. Karl says that they have run with Finn for a long time and you can see it on the WWE Network.

Luke says they knew it was time to stand alone when Finn showed up. They won the tag titles. Finn was the first Universal Champion. Karl says they knew that they would get back together and take over that place. Finn says that day was last Monday. Finn says they are excited too because 2018 is the Year of Balor Club. Jason says he is happy to be part of the Champions’ Club.

Karl asks if that is a cute new version of the Shield. Finn says he does not see the Lunatic Fringe. He sees the Architect and the Big Dog. He sees . . . Luke throws out a NERD. Jason slaps Gallows and Rollins holds Jordan back while Balor and Anderson hold back Gallows.

Kurt Angle makes his way to the stage and he mentions what is on the show tonight, but he just found his main event. Kurt wants to find out who would win a match between these teams so it will be a six man tag match tonight.

Roman Reigns, Jason Jordan, and Seth Rollins stand around in the back and talk as we go to commercial.

A War Of Reprecussions! Last week Roman Reigns got disqualified for pushing a referee, he is set on a war path. But before his match, he has a few words with Renée Young. Reigns says that Samoa Joe got what he deserved last week. After hurting he and Dean Ambrose, Reigns said Joe didn’t deserve a title shot.

Before Roman goes one on one with Samoa Joe, Seth Rollins tells Roman that as much as he understands why he’s so fired up, he should take it easy to prevent a disqualification. Seth says he likes the fact that both of them are champions and he’d like to keep it that way.

Match: Roman makes his way to the the ring. Samoa Joe is fast to take the lead in the match. Roman Soon has had enough as he sets after Samoa Joe with Samoan Drops and Superman Punches. Samoa Joe still has fight in him as Roman slides out of the ring, and drops a Drive By on Joe. This gets Joe off balance for a bit. Roman then goes for the steel steps. The referee stops him and reminds him of the disqualification rule. Reigns backs off. In the ring, Roman sets up for a Superman Punch. Joe pushes Roman into the referee to try to gain the title off of the disqualification. Roman pleads with the referee that he was pushed. The match continues. Joe eats two Superman Punches and a Spear.

Roman Reigns begins 2018 by successfully defending his Intercontinental Championship.

This match had a lot of highlights. To find out more about this war of epic proportions, here is what WWE.com had to say.

Consider the curse broken. Roman Reigns didn’t just score his first-ever singles win over Samoa Joe in their Intercontinental Title rematch, he got retribution for Dean Ambrose, defended the honor of The Shield and managed to navigate a stipulation that would have cost The Big Dog his title if he got himself disqualified.

That caveat was a result of the excessive aggression that both got Roman disqualified last week and earned him a $5,000 fine for shoving referee John Cone. This time around, The Big Dog had to toe a fine line when it came to carrying the flag for the injured Ambrose while also keeping his anger in check to retain his title (especially with Cone donning the stripes again), and Joe took advantage of Reigns’ hesitance early in the match. Even by his standards, The Samoan Submission Machine was in rare form, blistering Reigns with offense that left the champion out on his feet and searching wildly for an answer.

Even when Roman got himself back into the match, he flirted close enough with a disqualification on several occasions that the ref pulled him off and stopped his momentum cold, allowing Joe to reassert himself. And Joe seemed to successfully exploit the loophole when he shoved Reigns into Cone, setting off a confrontation that may have led to a disqualification if Joe hadn’t pressed his attack, landing a Uranage that continued the match. An irate Joe locked in the Coquina Clutch moments later, but Reigns had one move left in the tank, throwing Joe over his shoulder and pouncing with a sternum-shattering Spear to put the instant classic to a close.

An Enraged Emperor! Following the heinous attack on Dean Ambrose last week, which led to emergency surgery, Roman Reigns was beyond ready for payback. Roman was called into Kurt Angle’s office and was told by the Raw General Manager that he had Samoa Joe all to himself. Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe for later tonight.

Renee Young caught up with Roman Reigns before his match against Samoa Joe. Roman said that after what happened last week, tonight was payback for what happened to his brother Dean Ambrose. High on rage and fury, Roman said that after all was said and done, he was leaving Chicago still Champion.

Roman made his way out to the ring. From the look on his face, you can tell that tonight wasn’t about him. Tonight was not about the championship. Tonight was about respecting family. Roman Reigns watched his brother Dean Ambrose being taken out for months due to the attack from Samoa Joe. This means war.

Roman started off the match on fire. He quickly attacked Samoa Joe as soon as the bell rung. The only offense Samoa Joe had during the entire match was when due to a little interruption by the referee, which led to the Cocina Clutch. Reigns was an enraged Samoan who could not be tamed. Roman threw kicks and punches and missed the referees break count, which led to his disqualification.

Disqualification or not, Roman Reigns was not finished yet. Samoa Joe was in for a Samoan Beatdown. Roman Reigns caught Samoa Joe trying to run off. He caught him and ran him into the ring post not once, but twice. If you thought he was done, you would be wrong! Roman Reigns grabbed the steel steps and ran them straight into Samoa Joe. He was thinking about doing it again, but a referee stopped him. Reigns then opted for a chair, but when he swung it Samoa Joe moved out of the way. More referees came out and Samoa Joe slipped past them. Samoa Joe is running now… But for how long?

WWE.com has more on what happened during the match and the aftermath as Roman had Samoa Joe right where he wanted him. Check it out below.

Thank you for interacting with us tonight as we cover Monday Night Raw. We want to wish you and all of your family a Happy Holidays!

The good news for Samoa Joe is that Roman Reigns still hasn’t beaten him one-on-one. The bad news is that The Samoan Submission Machine missed out on the Intercontinental Title, as Reigns decided that, instead of beating Joe, he’d rather beat Joe up.

In other words, Roman remains Intercontinental Champion, even though a burst of excessive aggression forced the ref to call off the match and award the disqualification win to Joe. It’s difficult to blame Roman for the outburst, as Joe’s self-proclaimed “systematic destruction of The Shield” tore Dean Ambrose’s triceps tendon last week, putting The Lunatic Fringe on the shelf for, potentially, up to nine months, and Reigns picked up the torch in truly brutal fashion. The Intercontinental Champion came out swinging, forcing Joe into the uncommon position of fighting from underneath.

That he did, landing a suicide forearm that tweaked Reigns’ left arm. The Big Dog fought back with one good arm to force Joe into the corner, but once the champion threw the ref out of his way to continue his assault, he was disqualified. Freed from the constraints of the contest, however, Reigns went to town, dropping his foe with a targeted assault of Joe’s shoulder that a squadron of officials was powerless to stop. Joe narrowly avoided Reigns’ home-run swing with a steel chair, but the damage may well have been done. Somewhere, Ambrose is most likely smiling. In the backstage area, Seth Rollins visibly was.

A Fighting Champion! Roman Reigns has given all comers a chance at his Intercontinental Championship. He is a fighting champion after all. Reigns has not shied away from anyone including Samoa Joe. Samoa Joe starts off Raw demanding to see Roman. He wants Roman to come out and so does the WWE Universe. Seth Rollins is watching backstage and Dean walks up. Rollins tells him to go get Roman. Roman walks up and looks at the monitor. He tells the boys “I Got This”. Roman heads out to the ring. Once there, he goes straight to Samoa Joe will a full on attack. Cesaro is seen coming to Samoa Joe’s defense. Then Rollins and Ambrose follow behind. It is an all out war. Samoa Joe puts the Coquina Clutch on Roman and takes him out. For coming to Reigns aid, Rollins and Ambrose get taken out as well. What will be Roman’s fate later on when he takes on Cesaro later tonight.

Roman Reigns vs Cesaro starts off with Roman letting out all of his aggression on Cesaro. Hit after hit, Reigns takes it to Cesaro. Soon Cesaro takes over with a Fujiwa Armbar. This takes a lot out of Reigns Shoulder. It doesn’t stop Reigns. Roman Reigns fights back, bringing all he has to Cesaro. Getting out of the second Fujiwa Armbar, Reigns sets up for a Superman Punch. Cesaro blocks it, and corners Roman in the corner. Just when you thought Roman was out for the count, he uses all of his strength to Spear Cesaro into defeat. Checkout WWE.com’s review on what went down below!

Samoa Joe incurred the wrath of The Shield last week, and the experience left him profoundly unimpressed. After managing to singlehandedly upend Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins’ bid for the Raw Tag Team Titles, The Samoan Submission Machine opened Team Red by unleashing a slew of insults in the direction of The Hounds of Justice — particularly in the direction of Roman Reigns, as part of Joe’s continuing efforts to goad the Intercontinental Champion into a fight.

He got what he was looking for, as Reigns answered Joe’s call, only to be waylaid by Cesaro & Sheamus, who instigated a brawl that also brought the remaining members of The Shield charging to the ring. Joe indeed got the better of Reigns in the scuffle with The Bar’s help, but Ambrose — scheduled to face Joe later in the night — was quick to pick up the slack, throwing hands with Joe until Cesaro & Sheamus intervened, dispatching Rollins and feeding The Lunatic Fringe into a Uranage that ended the fight on Joe’s terms.

Roman Reigns’ status as a fighting champion has already landed him in the path of two hungry up-and-comers. This week, it almost cost him the Intercontinental Title. Cesaro was The Big Dog’s challenger of the week, and The Swiss Cyborg threw everything at Reigns to attempt to add a second title to his waist.

Even though Reigns prevailed, 90 percent of the bout was a brutal showcase for the challenger, who absolutely decimated Reigns’ arm to take the Superman Punch out of the game by way of some wrenching holds and a thunderous Cesaro Swing into the barricade. Effectively rendered one-armed by his challenger’s game plan, Reigns had to get crafty — rollups, Drive-By, Samoan Drop — to stay in the fight, and when the fight spilled to the outside, Reigns threw caution to the wind and landed a Superman Punch off the steps.

It seemed the high-risk strike would put Reigns back in control, but all it did was send Cesaro into a blind frenzy. A few close calls aside, The Swiss Superman firmly seized control of the match by pulverizing the champion with European uppercuts and hauling a dazed Reigns into the center of the ring to set up for the Neutralizer. But a back-body drop thwarted the challenger, and an exhausted Reigns followed that up with a last-ditch Spear to narrowly — very narrowly — retain his title.

RAW GM Kurt Angle opens the show to hype the Tag Team Title and Intercontinental Titles being on the line. Before he can announce Roman’s challenger though, Jason Jordan’s music interrupts him and the young upstart heads to the ring garnering himself a lot of heat. He wants Roman for the title despite his knee being taped up and brings up past opponents that he’s held his own against in the ring. This brought about the appearance of the Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns who said that he has no interest in facing Jason but rather wants his hands on Samoa Joe. However, Jason verbally attacks Roman for being exactly what the company wants though Roman fires back by saying that he’s earned his keep. Samoa Joe is next and gives Roman five seconds to withdraw his challenge because he ‘knows’ he can’t beat Roman. Jason gets involved in the conversation again, stating that he is tough unlike Joe who only “talks” tough and attacks people from behind. Therefore, Jordan challenges Joe to face him right now. Roman backs him up though… so Jordan nails the champion with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex! Angle ushers his son out of the ring but Roman says Joe can wait til later. As for Jason, we’re doing it right NOW.

MATCH #1: Roman Reigns vs. Jason Jordan for the Intercontinental Championship.

Samoa Joe is watching the match from the top of the entrance ramp. Roman is relentless in his early assault of Jordan even whipping him all the way to the outside of the ring. Roman takes his challenger’s head to the mat and then whips him hard into the barricade as well as the steel steps. When they get back in, Jason tries to mount a comeback but Roman clocks him with right hands and a clothesline to send him back outside the ring again. Roman nails him with the Drive-By and scores the first near fall. Roman uses a chinlock to wear his opponent down but gets drilled into the corner and then back and forth between the opposite buckles. Roman goes shoulder-first into the ringpost and crumbles to the outside.

After the break, Jordan has Roman in an armbar, who eventually fights out with right hands and a couple of massive clotheslines. Roman slugs away on Jordan in the corner and nails him with a running big boot but only gets a two count. Jason manages to counter an attempt at the Superman Punch with a dropkick for a two count. Roman fights back and sends Jordan outside again but another attempt at the Superman Punch is countered when Jordan drives him into the ring steps on two occasions. This gets him a very near fall. Jorda counters a THIRD Superman Punch with a back suplex but yes, it’s another two count.

After a second commercial break, Roman nails Jordan with right hands and scores a DDT for a two count. He then goes to a half-crab on Jordan’s injured knee but he refuses to tap out and cradles Roman for a two count. THIS TIME, the Superman Punch from Roman connects but he only gets a near fall. Roman now goes for the Spear but Jordan kicks him in the head and hits rolling Northern Lights Suplexes (while selling the knee very well) for a near fall. Jordan goes for something but Roman counters and hits the Superman Punch/Spear combo for the big win.

WINNER via PINFALL: Roman Reigns (20:36)

After the match, Samoa Joe hits the ring and immediately puts Roman in the Coquina Clutch but Jason comes up from behind and nails the Samoan with a back suplex! Joe wants to go back in but the referee stops him. After that, Roman decides to hit Jordan with the Superman Punch to send him out of the ring.

Backstage in the locker room Roman Reigns tells his boys he did his part and now it is up to Dean and Seth.

Seth says the New Day isn’t here to ruin things.  Seth says after they win tonight, they will all . . .

Dean asks Seth if the match is tonight.  Dean says he is kidding and he has been visualizing knocking out more of Cesaro’s teeth and they will be champions again.

We go to commercial.

MATCH #6: The Bar vs. Ambrose & Rollins for the RAW Tag Team Championship

Ambrose starts off with Cesaro but that doesn’t last long as Sheamus is tagged in and Dean-O hammers away at both of them. He goes for the tag to Rollins but Cesaro pulls him off the apron at the last second, which allows Sheamus to take over. The Bar use some basic double-teaming to take over with Sheamus putting Dean on the top rope. He flings over and tags Rollins though, who takes Sheamus down with a sling blade for a two count. Sheamus takes an UGLY clothesline to the floor but they both avoid a plancha. Sheamus drives Rollins into the post though and we take a break.

Sheamus maintains control over Rollins choking him against the ropes and then deprives the fans of counting along with him before tagging in Cesaro, who manages a two count. Sheamus now wears down Rollins with an overhead wristlock but Seth fights out and plants him with a DDT. Cesaro cuts him off from making a tag and goes to work on the arm. Again, Rollins goes for a tag but this time Cesaro boots Ambrose in the face to cut it off. The Bar executes a press slam/uppercut combo for two. Rollins is finally able to make the tag and Ambrose is a house of fire. Ambrose takes down Cesaro, hits a seated dropkick on Sheamus but then runs right into a Cesaro uppercut. Ambrose rolls through a cross-body for a two count before countering another move with a cradle for a near fall. He goes for Dirty Deeds but Sheamus breaks it up. Dean then ducks the Brogue Kick and rolls up Cesaro for another two count. Sheamus finally manages to get a shot in on Ambrose to turn the momentum but Dean is able to rana Cesaro into the corner and gets the tag. Rollins immediately comes in with the superplex/falcon arrow combo on Sheamus but Cesaro breaks it up at the last second. Cesaro tags himself in and goes for the Neutralizer. Rollins counters but Cesaro counters that, goes for it again but Rollins counters hits the knee to the face for a two count… broken up by Sheamus. After that, Sheamus unleashes a relentless assault on Rollins… and we have a DQ finish. Sheaus is elated that his plan has worked.

BUT WAIT!

Kurt Angle comes out and says that this match is not over and will continue as a No DQ match. The champs slowly back up towards the ring and are taken out with stereo dives by the Shield! Cesaro is taken into the crowd while Sheamus is sent into the steps. Back in the ring, Dean hits a clothesline and Rollins gets a top-rope splash but it only gets two. Suddenly, Samoa Joe is out thereand he kills both guys in quick succession. Roman Reigns runs down to go after Joe and takes out Cesaro on the way but one Brogue Kick from Sheamus puts Ambrose down for the count.

Reigning Gold? After going to war with The New day at Survivor Series and coming out victorious, The Shield has their sights set on gold. Wait where does that leave Roman? Roman is a guest on MizTv tonight on Raw and he will let the WWE Universe into his future plans.
The Miz calls out Roman Reigns and the entire Shield come out. Miz says that he only wanted Roman, but we all know Roman is never alone. The Miz tries to take credit for The Shield reuniting, but the boys are not having any of it. Roman tells Miz since Ambrose and Rollins are going after gold, he wants gold of his own. He challenges The Miz to an Intercontinental Championship match tonight. The Miz says in order for that to happen, Roman has to go through the Miztourage. The entire Shield jumps the Miztourage ending the beating with a Triple Powerbomb.

Roman Reigns vs The Miz ended Raw for the night. Roman quickly wanted to beat down The Miz, but Miz tucked his tail and ran. Roman gave chase quickly catching up with him and smacking him in the face. Soon Miz blocked Roman’s Drive by and caught him with a kick to the stomach. Miz rolls in the ring leaving Reigns on the outside. Roman takes his time just beating the count of 10. After the commercial break, Roman is still in control. After a hard fought fight, it all went his way with A SPEAR!

YOUR WINNER AND NEWWW WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION ROMAN REIGNS!!!

Here is what WWE.com has to say about the new Grand Slam Champion.

Not wanting to be left out of The Shield’s collective pursuit of championship glory, Roman Reigns decided he wanted a title of his own during an interview on “Miz TV.” And with Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins going after the Raw Tag Team Titles, the closest prize available was The Miz’s Intercontinental Championship. A scant two hours later, and that championship had a new home in the trophy case of The Big Dog’s yard.

Yes, Reigns is officially the new Intercontinental Champion, having picked apart The A-Lister in Raw’s main event. Minus the safety net of The Miztourage, who were taken out by The Shield earlier in the night, The A-Lister gave The Big Dog a tougher fight than perhaps he was expecting — those It Kicks found their mark even with Reigns’ extra protection, and The Awesome One chop-blocked Reigns out of the air in the middle of a Superman Punch.

Despite a truly impressive effort by the champion and a last-minute interference by Cesaro & Sheamus, Reigns had one extra burst left to carry him to glory. The Big Dog kicked out of the Skull-Crushing Finale and emphatically Speared his way to the title after The Shield disposed of The Bar at ringside, setting off a celebration with his brothers to cap a performance that wasn’t just a home run — it was a Grand Slam.
