In what was an intense battle for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship between current champion Roman Reigns and contender AJ Styles at Extreme Rules that saw Roman Reigns emerge the victor after a crushing spear in mid-air to AJ Styles to retain his championship. However, Roman’s celebration was short lived as the crowd came to their feet when our very own Seth Rollins made a surprise return after months of recovering from a knee injury. He immediately attacked battle-weary Roman Reigns, pedigreed him to the mat and went on to hold up the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, a title in which he never actually lost.
The message was clear for all to see as Extreme Rules went off the air. Roman Reigns days as champion are numbered.
