The fatal four-way encounter, though not the main event, carried significant weight, especially considering the imminent approach of WrestleMania 40. Reigns, aware of the stakes, entered the ring with the understanding that a loss was not an option at this crucial juncture in his championship reign.
AJ Styles, a master of his craft, executed a Styles Clash that momentarily seemed to have Reigns beaten. The impact resonated throughout the arena, and for a moment, the audience collectively held their breath. However, the pin was abruptly broken up by the unexpected interference of LA Knight, injecting an element of chaos into the match.
The chaos reached its peak when Randy Orton, with his unparalleled ability to strike at the opportune moment, delivered an RKO that connected with all three opponents – Reigns, Styles, and Knight. The arena erupted in cheers as Orton appeared to have the match won. The anticipation of a new champion hung thick in the air until Solo Sikoa, in obligatory fashion, interfered.
Knight, inadvertently costing Styles the match, set the stage for the closing sequence. Reigns, seizing the opportunity, executed a thunderous spear on Styles, securing the pinfall and, more importantly, retaining his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. The victory not only intensified the budding feud between Knight and Styles but also served to protect Orton from suffering a pinfall defeat.
As the dust settled in the aftermath of this intense fatal four-way clash, Roman Reigns stood tall, his championship reign unscathed. The win propelled Reigns on his path to the main event of WrestleMania 40, solidifying his status as the reigning champion and setting the stage for what promises to be an epic showdown on the grandest stage of them all.
