Quote We see a video package looking at Roman Reign's return to WWE and his feud with Drew McIntyre.

- Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre: Reigns gets a big pyro display for his entrance. A marching drum band plays for Drew's entrance. Reigns starts off strong and hits a Samoan Drop on Drew. Reigns pummels on Drew in the corner, but Drew fights out and hits a spinebuster on Reigns. They fight out to the apron and Reigns hits a Fameasser on the apron. Back in the ring, Drew turns it around with a headbutt and a suplex for a two count. Drew misses a shot and Reigns clotheslines him out to ringside. Reigns misses a kick and Drew comes back with a suplex on the ringside floor. Back in the ring, Drew takes Reigns up to the top turnbuckle. Reigns fights back and hangs Drew upside down in the corner. Drew sits right up and suplexes Reigns down from the turnbuckle to the mat. Drew slaps Reigns across the face, and Reigns hulks up and hits a big boot on Drew. Reigns knocks Drew outside then runs around ringside and hits the Drive By kick. Reigns hits a Samoan Drop at ringside next, then he rolls Drew back in the ring. Reigns misses one Superman punch, but he hits the next one. Reigns follows up with the spear for the three count.


 Winner: Roman Reigns

It was a shortish match. I expected it to be longer, which makes me think Roman isn't 100% just yet.

Drew should have got the win. It wouldn't have harmed Roman coming back after cancer for his first one on one for six months and to lose.

I think we will see them face each other again, which Drew will win to take it to a third PPV.

Roman doesn't have the cardio yet, I don't think. The match was rather typical of a Reigns match, which is to say boring, but at least it wasn't long, it was mid-card, and with it being Reigns first match I think most people were willing to be forgiving of the performance. They'll turn on him soon enough if he doesn't turn in better.

I actually quite enjoyed this match given how obvious the winner was right from the moment it was announced.

Drew got in plenty of offence and looked good in defect - he is MONEY and should be World Champ sometime soon.

Great to see Roman back where he belongs - on the big stage and not fighting illness.

Roman had to get his happy feel good win here didn't he I get that, just wish it didn't have to be at the expense of McIntyre who is money and should be getting pushed to the moon, they should be booking him similar to Lesnar. 

Drew looked strong until the later stages when Roman got the win too easily, he just ran through his sequence of trademark moves then 1-2-3. At least have Drew duck the spear or kick out of it once, I felt he went down too easily.

This was a excellent segment and highlighted the good work WWE have done with Drew over the past year elevating him into a headlining postion, he really came across like a big star here and when he went nose to nose with Roman there was a big fight feel and it really made me want to see these two in a match. 

I loved how Roman just coolly brushed Drew's achievements aside and said he doesn't watch Raw and neither does anyone else because all eyes are on Smackdown, he basically said thanks for holding the fort but now I'm back. This was really good promo work from both men as it was based on reality. 

Good match between Drew and Jey later in the night which furthered the simmering rivalry between Drew and Roman. Makes me wonder if there is a slow burning plan in place building to a match between Drew and Roman at a major show, it would really need to be a Wrestlemania level show as these two are the top guys in the company right now.
