With Vince McMahon stepping away from WWE, the company is in the process of changing. In that transition, Triple H took over as head of creative, with people and friends asking him what to make of the change.
“You can call me biased, you can call me whatever you want to, but since [Triple H] took over, Raw, the go-home Raw, and Saturday night were a huge success in my eyes,” WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg said on the “Oh… You Didn’t Know?” podcast. “You thought you were going to get a rematch like you’ve seen before and here came Brock Lesnar on a stinking tractor with a forklift on it, you know what I mean? Like, what in the world? So, look, I think they moved forward in a huge way, and I think they made the fans happy. I didn’t hear one thing say anything negative about the show.”
Brock Lesnar faced Roman Reigns
Brock Lesnar faced Roman Reigns at SummerSlam for their sixth singles meeting. These matches also included their match at WrestleMania 31, which was a main event until Seth Rollins interfered and joined the contest.
While the previous matches usually involved minor differences in pacing and flow, McMahon would have been the top-level decision maker for those exact matches.
What made those matches unique was how similar they were, as well as how few of them there were.
Last Man Standing Match
On January 28, 2019, John Cena defeated Kevin Owens and Bobby Lashley to win the Intercontinental Championship. John then had a match against Roman Reigns in the main event of a WWE live event in Bridgeport, Connecticut where they ended up in a Last Man Standing Match that went more than 22 minutes with Roman being victorious.
