After a series of finishing moves, including the Helluva Kick for Reigns and the Floppin’ Flop for Cody Rhodes, Rhodes attempted a third Cross Rhodes to secure the win. However, Solo returned and hit the Samoan Spike, allowing Reigns to hit the Spear and secure the pin count.
With this win, Reigns retains the Unified WWE Universal Championship in his sixth defense. He has maintained a reign of 945 days and 28 successful defenses since Payback 2020. Reigns also added the WWE Championship to his collection 364 days ago at WrestleMania 38 (Night 2) by defeating Brock Lesnar.
Roman Reigns unified both titles by defeating Lesnar again at WrestleMania 39. It’s safe to say that Reigns is currently one of the most dominant forces in the WWE.
