WWE Universal Championship Extreme Rules Match
Roman Reigns (c) (w/ Paul Heyman) vs Finn Bálor
Roman shoves Finn backwards when they lock up before backing Finn into the corner and Finn kicks the legs of Roman before Roman drops him with a forearm and hops back up before they exchange strikes until Roman hits a Samoan drop for two. Roman hits a snap suplex for two before getting out of the ring and grabbing a kendo stick before Finn brings out four kendo sticks taped together and beats Roman with it before Roman comes back with clubbing blows in the corner. Roman dumps Finn out of the ring and plays to the crowd before Finn traps Roman in the apron skirt and stomps him before grabbing a table and Roman attacks him from behind before sliding the table back underneath the ring. Roman tosses Finn back inside and tosses the four kendo sticks to ringside before bringing a chair into the ring and hitting Finn with it before Finn comes back and drives Roman into the steps before they brawl into the WWE Universe. They make their way back to ringside and back into the ring before Finn hits a sling blade and brings a table into the ring before Roman hits a uranage through the table for a near fall. Roman hits a Superman punch for a near fall before Finn hits a sling blade and Roman spears him for a very close near fall as Finn low blows Roman before sending Roman out of the ring and hitting a tope. Finn hits the Coup de Grace before The Usos come out and attack Finn before Finn fights them off and powerbombs Jey through a table before Roman spears him through the time keeper's area. The lights then go red before Finn comes back and hits Roman with a chair and puts him through a table before tossing Roman back into the ring and goes up top before the rope snaps and he falls and Roman pins him with a spear.
Winner: Roman Reigns retains his Universal title by defeating Finn Bálor via pinfall.
