Rusev demanded satisfaction against Roman Reigns.
Well, hopefully he’s satisfied with himself now that The Big Dog defeated him in a non-title match, leaving The Super Athlete to stumble into SummerSlam on a skid and Reigns to swagger into Brooklyn, N.Y., on the back of a much-needed victory.
The Bulgarian Brute certainly did not hold back in his effort to defend Lana’s honor, targeting Reigns’ arm and using his fearsome kicks to stop Reigns dead in his tracks on multiple occasions.
The former WWE World Champion had more fight in him
than Rusev expected, mightily fighting to the ropes to break an Accolade and, somehow, administering a Spear out of left field to notch the pin.
Roman Reigns as U.S. Champion? After this, we can believe that.
