He then says simply, the money is with Roman Reigns. Not Cody Rhodes. He tells “The American Nightmare” that it was a nice try, but Reigns won’t wilt under the bright lights tonight.

They take out The Usos, then Owens hits a Stunner on Reigns, and Sami hits a Helluva Kick to Reigns. The Usos attack Zayn and Owens again, then the two teams brawl to the back. Cody crawls for the pin as the referee wakes back up and makes the slow count. Reigns kicks out and everyone explodes and Heyman is beside himself.
Reigns and Rhodes trade big strikes from their knees now, fighting to their feet as fans go along with each blow. The huge strikes continue for a minute or so. Cody blocks a Superman Punch and unloads with left jabs of his own as fans go wild. Cody with the Bionic Elbow and the right hand in a tribute to his father. Cody nails the Cross Rhodes, but holds Reigns and nails it again. Heyman is on the apron arguing with the referee. Solo comes back down, wearing a hoodie, and drops Cody with a Samoan Spike from the apron. Solo drops back down. Reigns gets up and runs the ropes to level Rhodes with a big Spear for the pin to win and retain.
Winner and STILL Undisputed WWE Universal Champion: Roman Reigns
Solo Sikoa joins “The Wise Man” Paul Heyman in the ring and “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns is presented with his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. “Just because we’re in Hollywood doesn’t mean we’re guaranteed a happy ending.” The crowd continues to react and the three exit the ring as Corey Graves and Michael Cole talk us through some match highlights.
They stop half way up the entrance ramp and Reigns raises both titles high in the air to continue his legendary 900+ day reign as fireworks erupt all over SoFi Stadium. Cody is shown looking disappointed in the ring. That’s how this year’s show goes off the air. Thanks for joining us!
