A War Of Reprecussions! Last week Roman Reigns got disqualified for pushing a referee, he is set on a war path. But before his match, he has a few words with Renée Young. Reigns says that Samoa Joe got what he deserved last week. After hurting he and Dean Ambrose, Reigns said Joe didn’t deserve a title shot.

Before Roman goes one on one with Samoa Joe, Seth Rollins tells Roman that as much as he understands why he’s so fired up, he should take it easy to prevent a disqualification. Seth says he likes the fact that both of them are champions and he’d like to keep it that way.

Match: Roman makes his way to the the ring. Samoa Joe is fast to take the lead in the match. Roman Soon has had enough as he sets after Samoa Joe with Samoan Drops and Superman Punches. Samoa Joe still has fight in him as Roman slides out of the ring, and drops a Drive By on Joe. This gets Joe off balance for a bit. Roman then goes for the steel steps. The referee stops him and reminds him of the disqualification rule. Reigns backs off. In the ring, Roman sets up for a Superman Punch. Joe pushes Roman into the referee to try to gain the title off of the disqualification. Roman pleads with the referee that he was pushed. The match continues. Joe eats two Superman Punches and a Spear.

Roman Reigns begins 2018 by successfully defending his Intercontinental Championship.

This match had a lot of highlights. To find out more about this war of epic proportions, here is what WWE.com had to say.

Consider the curse broken. Roman Reigns didn’t just score his first-ever singles win over Samoa Joe in their Intercontinental Title rematch, he got retribution for Dean Ambrose, defended the honor of The Shield and managed to navigate a stipulation that would have cost The Big Dog his title if he got himself disqualified.

That caveat was a result of the excessive aggression that both got Roman disqualified last week and earned him a $5,000 fine for shoving referee John Cone. This time around, The Big Dog had to toe a fine line when it came to carrying the flag for the injured Ambrose while also keeping his anger in check to retain his title (especially with Cone donning the stripes again), and Joe took advantage of Reigns’ hesitance early in the match. Even by his standards, The Samoan Submission Machine was in rare form, blistering Reigns with offense that left the champion out on his feet and searching wildly for an answer.

Even when Roman got himself back into the match, he flirted close enough with a disqualification on several occasions that the ref pulled him off and stopped his momentum cold, allowing Joe to reassert himself. And Joe seemed to successfully exploit the loophole when he shoved Reigns into Cone, setting off a confrontation that may have led to a disqualification if Joe hadn’t pressed his attack, landing a Uranage that continued the match. An irate Joe locked in the Coquina Clutch moments later, but Reigns had one move left in the tank, throwing Joe over his shoulder and pouncing with a sternum-shattering Spear to put the instant classic to a close.
