(9) Roman Reigns wrestled Braun Strowman to a double count-out in a match for the WWE Universal Championship. Both men battled back to the ring post-match where Reigns eventually speared Strowman through a table to a huge pop, ending the show. Both Reigns and Strowman got the main event babyface reaction throughout the match. Very little in the way of jeers for Reigns.
