Kevin Owens, Big Cass, Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins were in a four-way elimination match for WWE’s Universal Championship, which was won last week by Finn Balor, and then promptly vacated due to injury. For storyline reasons that will be explained later but not this evening, Triple H returned from a four-month absence since WrestleMania, put his finisher on Roman Reigns and then Seth Rollins, and Owens pinned Rollins and won the belt. (Cass had already been eliminated.)
Owens has been the most compelling all-around performer on WWE’s roster for the past year, and it will be fun to see where this angle goes.
Raw closed with the crowd chanting YOU DESERVE IT at Owens. Indeed he does.
