When he's in a long battle where he sells a lot, it's much more entertaining watching him then a one sided quick(ish) squash match.


Totally agree - was his best match in ages

Jordan wrestled well too and you could see them having a title match at a PPV in the not too distant future

this is one of the reasons I don't have the exact same problem with him that I had with Cena. he remembers when he needs to sell, not just when it happens, but at various points later in the match, and after the match. Cena used to just look out of breath, you could have been working his knee or ankle for the entire match, yet as soon as that belt rang, he had no issue with putting weight n the area.

Reigns does. he will not only limp around the ring, but will limp all the way up the ramp, even when the cameras aren't explicitly on him - at times, when they have Cole, Booker and Graves standing with their backs to the ramp, you can see him walking out, limping or holding whatever body part he needs to to continue to sell the match - but he desperately needs to work on his promo skills. the promo he delivered in at the start to Jordan had the same mannerisms that his "I'm not a good guy..." shit had, the smirk, the delivery style, everything, and unless he can start to either work that into a face delivery, or unless he is allowed to turn heel where that feels more natural, then he's going to be booed again once the Shield reunion is over.

Quote Roman Reigns vs. Cesaro: The Intercontinental Title is on the line in this one. The opening bell sounds and they go right at it. They briefly brawl out to ringside and then back in, where Cesaro gets off some cheap shots on Reigns when he re-enters the ropes. Cesaro hits some uppercuts until Reigns fires back with a lariat. Reigns keeps striking Cesaro until he falls, then he takes him into the corner for a series of clotheslines. Cesaro blocks one clothesline and slams Reigns' arm over the turnbuckle. Cesaro charges but Reigns stuns him with a punch, but is selling the right arm. They go out to ringside where Reigns attempts the Drive By, but Cesaro kicks him out of mid-air and takes control. Cesaro whips Reigns into the fan barricade arm-first, then takes him back in the ring where he continues to work on the arm. Cesaro gets Reigns in an armbar, but Reigns fights out and hits a back body drop. Reigns headbutts Cesaro down and he falls across the bottom rope, then Reigns runs around the ring and hits the Drive By. Back in the ring, Reigns calls for the Superman punch, but Cesaro hits him out of mid-air. Cesaro goes for an armbar, and then a Crossface, but Reigns fights out and hits a Samoan drop. Reigns is slow to get up, and Cesaro starts laying into him with uppercuts. Cesaro throws Reigns shoulder-first into the ring post and he falls out to ringside. Reigns manages to hit Cesaro with a big boot at ringside, then he drops him with a right hand. Back in the ring, both men are getting tired and trade strikes. Cesaro goes for the Crossface again, but Reigns powers out and hits a sitdown powerbomb for a two count. Fans chant "this is awesome" as both men are down. They slowly get up and trade strikes, and when the ref gets between them Cesaro hits a cheap shot. Cesaro then argues with the ref as Reigns gets up. Cesaro starts teeing off with uppercuts until the ref warns him. Cesaro hits more uppercuts then goes for the Neutralizer, but Reigns backdrops him and hits the spear for the three count.

Winner: Roman Reigns

- Reigns raises his IC Title high in the air as his music hits and we go to replays.

Another brilliant match by Roman Reigns. Who would have thought it eh?
 
My only knock is the title shouldn't be always on the line in the open challenge.
 
We know he's not dropping the title yet, so have the open challenge non title and occasionally book someone to beat him to get a title shot, which they lose in.
