New Day In-Ring Segment ...
... is almost immediately interrupted by Enzo & Big Cass.
Big Cass enters the Rumble.
Rusev''s music hits, he comes out with Jinder and Lana, clowns on Big E and Big Cass for having obvious adjectives in their names.
"You don't see me going around calling myself 'Handsome Rusev.'"
He says he's in the Royal Rumble, too.
Titus O'Neil's music hits.
The New Day hate Titus O'Neil seems to be the storyline here.
But he says that there's going to be an 8 man tag.
Xavier wisely reports that Titus' 4th man appears to be Lana.
But no, Titus says. His fourth man is ...
Rusev, Jinder, Titus & Braun
Kofi, Big E, Enzo & Cass
Ttius works over Kofi for a while and then the whole breaks down pretty quick.
Bada Boom Shaka Laka on Jinder, Titus breaks up the pin.
Everyone winds up on the outside with Enzo and Braun the legal men.
That goes about how you'd think.
WINNER: Braun's Team.
Braun is along in the ring, celebrating and BIG SHOW'S MUSIC HITS.
He comes down to the ring, gets in.
There's a stare down.
They circle each other, neither making the first move.
Braun smiles, shakes his head nope and gets out of the ring.
I HATE THIS BOOKING.
Braun should have WRECKED Show, proven he's the favorite.
CHRIS JERICHO vs ROMAN REIGNS
US Title Match
Owens is ringside, carrying his Universal Championship.
Roman Reigns takes control immediately, beating on Jericho like he owes him money.
Any time Owens gets close to Roman, Roman mean-mugs him and Owens backs down, because that's what a champion should do and so they wrote him that way.
Back from the break and Kevin Owens is on commentary and Chris Jericho is in control of the match.
He stays in control until he slaps Roman in the face and Roman hulks up.
Roman does his clothesline progression, then botches a Samoan drop. Jericho transitions it into a schoolboy, then punches Roman in the face a bunch.
They reset, Roman hits the Samoan Drop, then runs into a dropkick.
Two Count. Roman hits a Superman Punch on Jericho.
KO runs down and interferes.
WINNER BY DQ: Roman Reigns.
Kevin Owens calls for the shark cage to be lowered, and tries to lock Roman in the shark cage.
But Kevin Owens doesn't know how locks work, and Roman fights his way out of the cage, puts KO in it, and calls for it to be raised.
WHO IS THIS PERSON WHO CONTROLS THE SHARK CAGE AND WHAT ARE HIS ALLEGIANCES?
With Kevin Owens locked in the cage, high above the ring, Roman beats up Chris Jericho and hits him with a spear.
This was stupid.
After the break, they show KO getting let out of the cage by Jericho.
There's an interview in ring by Random Stranger.
She says that The Shark Cage Match on Sunday at the Royal Rumble will be No DQ.
Kevin Owens says that stinks.
Chris Jericho agrees.
