Kevin Owens defeats Seth Rollins at Clash of Champions

Published Add your comment

Tonight saw the Clash of Champions PPV and RAW's first solo effort at a PPV and with every title on the line, there was some drama.

Every title may have been defended, but only one actually changed hands as Roman Reigns captured the United States Championship.

First defense

Owens defended his Universal Championship for the first time tonight against Seth Rollins in a match that kept the fans on the edge of their seat.

It went back and forth all the way, but when Owens' friend Chris Jericho made his way to ringside, that when the odds really stacked against Rollins.

The Architect was doing well fending off the attacks of both men but his demise came once he inadvertently knocked out the referee.

With no referee, Jericho had free reign to do what he wants - that mostly involved attacking Rollins and trying to get Owens the win.

Rollins would overcome though and he would almost have victory in his grasp, and when he went to try and revive the referee, that was when things went south for him in a hurry.

Rollins would see Stephanie McMahon sending a referee to the ring to help count the pinfall, but by the time he returned into the ring, the champion was waiting for him.

Delivering the pop up powerbomb, Owens confirmed Rollins' defeat and opened the WWE Universe up to questions about why it took Stephanie so long to get a referee out.
