WWE World Heavyweight Title Tournament Semi-Finals
– Roman Reigns vs. Alberto Del Rio
We go straight into the arena where Michael Cole welcomes us to the show on commentary as we take a look around the arena. From there, Roman Reigns’ music hits and out he comes through the crowd as usual. As his opponent, Alberto Del Rio makes his way to the ring, we see a pre-taped interview from Zeb Colter promising Del Rio will become the next champion.
The bell sounds and here we go with our first match of the evening. The two lock up and here we go with our first tournament semi-final of the evening. Early on, Reigns seems to be in control of the action, with Del Rio getting in some offense here and there and staying strong.
Eventually, Del Rio takes over control of the offense and he focuses his attack on Reigns’ shoulder. We see a shot of Triple H watching on from backstage and a shot of the vacant WWE World Heavyweight Championship at ringside.
Out of nowhere, Reigns fires up and blasts Del Rio with a Superman Punch. He doesn’t get the three count, however, and moments later Del Rio reveals that he faked a leg buckling spot earlier and levels Reigns for a close nearfall.
A few moments later, Reigns and Del Rio are both down and out of the blue, Del Rio locks Reigns in the Cross Armbreaker. Reigns fights it for a while and then muscles Del Rio up and carries him into the corner but Del Rio holds onto the submission while laid up in the ropes.
Seconds later, after Reigns finally gets free from Del Rio’s finisher, he nails Reigns with a spear and covers him. 1-2-3. Roman Reigns advances to the finals of the WWE World Heavyweight Title tournament.
Winner and advancing to the finals of the WWE Title Tournament: Roman Reigns

Backstage, JoJo is with Reigns immediately after his semi-final victory. In comes Dean Ambrose. Ambrose congratulates Reigns and then Reigns tells him to go win his semi-final match so they can duke it out in the finals like they planned. When he leaves, in comes WWE Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens.
Owens tells Reigns that he’s come close to the title before, but Seth Rollins stopped him. He said he came close to becoming Mr. Money In The Bank as well, but Bray Wyatt stopped him. He said tonight, he’s gonna be the man to stop Reigns.\
