Randy Orton v Roman Reigns
This one should be as physical as a match can be & I don’t think it’ll disappoint.
The first portion of this match was very much a wrestler v brawler match up with Orton controlling with holds & counters and Reigns trying to use his power moves & throw punches.
There were many highlights from the match. A superplex from the top rope delivered by Orton and a Samoan drop from the top delivered by Reigns. Orton also delivered a very impressive counter turning a spear into a power slam!
Then towards the end Orton delivered an epic looking RKO after Reigns tried going for the superman punch. Very impressive!!
Reigns hit a huge spear on Orton for the win.
Orton was brilliant in this match. He did his job perfectly in making Reigns look like a million dollars.
Another solid match for this PPV! It’s been a great show thus far.
