Winner by Pinfall: Roman Reigns
It’s official: at WrestleMania 34, it’ll be Roman Reigns taking on Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship.
Strowman attacks Reigns from behind and hits a Running Powerslam. The crowd wants more, so he hits Reigns with a second Running Powerslam. Strowman pulls Reigns outside the ring and sends him through the plexiglass of the pod. Reigns is left laying in a heap as Strowman raises his arms in victory.
