WWE Royal Rumble: Roman Reigns & The Rock Team Up
Roman’s win at Royal Rumble wasn’t easy.
Fighting against Dean Ambrose, Big Show and Kane left him bleeding and tired during the match. Roman attempted to take on both Big Show and Kane, according to 411Mania.com. It was complete insanity inside the ring.
As Kane and Big Show fought it out, Roman came in the middle to take them both down. However, in the world of WWE, always expect the unexpected. Kane and Big Show returned to the ring to attack Roman!
GUESS WHAT, THOUGH?
The Rock showed up! He easily defeated Big Show and administered the People’s Elbow and more on Kane. This is The Rock’s second surprise appearance in the past year. He shocked everyone when he showed up on Monday Night RAW in Oct. 2014.
Rusev came back yet again for Roman, but Roman flipped him over the top rope to secure the win. What a boss!
The Rock and Roman basked in their victory. The crowd went wild with good and bad reactions. Many fans on Twitter weren’t thrilled with Roman’s win. They made “#CancelWWENetwork” a top trending topic. Yikes.
Roman will go on to face Brock Lesnar at the WrestleMania 31 event for the world heavyweight championship. We can’t wait to watch it all go down!
