Live Report by Doug Enriquez for ProWrestling.com
We start with a video package teasing Nia Jax’s challenge to Ronda Rousey for the Raw Women’s Championship
IN RING SEGMENT
We start the show with the BIG DOG! Roman Reigns makes his way out to the ring. Reigns is once again getting booed out of the building, and you have to wonder how much is muted out with it not being a live show. Graves says it’s a “typical United Kingdom reception”.
Reigns says that last week he was robbed, and this time it was not by WWE management, but instead by Jinder Mahal. He says that if Mahal wants to be more relevant than he ever has been in his career, come and join him in his yard.
Instead of Mahal, Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring, and he does not look happy. He tells Roman that Jinder will not be coming out. Roman asks when Kurt started speaking for Jinder, but Kurt says that he speaks for management, and he says that last week when he denied Jinder Mahal the opportunity to compete to be in the Money In The Bank ladder match. He says that later tonight Jinder will be in a triple threat match against Elias & Bobby Lashley. Roman Reigns says that he should be added to make it a Fatal 4-Way and beat Jinder and then qualify for the Money In The Bank Ladder match.
Kurt says that that isn’t going to happen, and he says that WWE management has made it very clear that Roman Reigns will not receive any more qualifying matches. The crowd is ecstatic and Roman says he gets it, Kurt has a family and a job to do, but now Roman is going to do what he has to do.
Roman marches his way to the back as the crowd chants “na na na goodbye” and he searches for Jinder. He ends up finding Jinder and Jinder throws Sunil Singh into Roman as he takes it to Roman and throws Roman into the wall multiple times. Roman eventually gets the upper hand as he ends up taking the fight back into the arena. Officials end up separating Jinder and Roman as Jinder barely escapes, still safe for now…
WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Both men are down and out and the referee is starting to employ his 10-count and both men just barely make it in the ring.
