He has already run as the World Champion of the Roman Regions to realize that it has the potential to be one of the most interesting title runs in modern wrestling history. Reynolds made the first television title defense of his current title regime in Friday’s edition of SmackDown, confronting former rival Brown Stroman at the night’s main event.
Lasting memories of the show, however, will be another star-studded affair between Regin and his cousin Jay Uzo. After his match, Rhine pleaded not to force his hand to attend the Hell in a Cell “I Quit” contest on October 25th. Uzo responded with his fists, legs and a steel chair.

Jay Uso refused to listen to the news of the Roman rule
WWE Universal Championship – Roman Reign (c) Def. Bron Stroman via submission Suffocation of a guillotine. Reins immediately took the fight to Stroman, who attacked him with an early Superman punch and then a drive-drop kick. The regimes continued to dominate until Stroman mounted a comeback outside the ring, slapping Rings on the ring post and throwing him over the announcement table before hitting the top of the Ringside block. Stroman had to make another comeback, attacking a dominant and a Chokeslam, but Reynes hit a low blow when he kicked, opening a spear for a reign near the fall. Reins tried another spear, but Stroman avoided the catch. However, the guillotine was able to lock in the suffocation and used the grip to force the stroman to tap.
Following Regin’s success, Jay Uzo’s music became a hit, and he went to the entrance arch. Reynolds looked at Uso and gestured to look at Stroman before hitting him with a post-match spear. Paul Heyman Reigns ruled to come to the Uzo ring that Uzo forced before giving him a steel chair. Reins pointed to Stroman and said, “We eat like this. If I wasn’t upstairs, we wouldn’t be doing this.” “Imagine what I could do for you if I could do this to him,” Reins continued, sternly warning Uzo. Stroman ruled with a chair before chasing down WWE officers and continuing the attack. “I love you, I will never do this to you, but you forced my hand,” Uzo said as he climbed into the ring. After Raines told Uso that he had forced his hand away, he turned back, claiming to be swinging the chair. Usho threw down the chair, screaming that he would not be there before punching Reynolds, and dropped him on the canvas with a super kick. Usho then drops Reynolds on the chair with a chair before officers stop the attack, allowing Reins to hit Superman Punch before leaving the ring with a mixture of frustration and sadness.
At this point it is not surprising that placing the rule and Uzo in the ring creates a different magic. True passion is not a strong point in real wrestling, but it has made Uzo and the regime a special project. The rivalry between Reynolds and Stroman for the TV main event was great, and it was a good summary for Reynolds to break the submission to win. But it’s about Uzo and the reign, and Stroman often served as an egg for the big story. Quality: B +
