The Big Dog vs. The Modern-Day Maharaja. WWE has posted a new video to its YouTube Channel in which they show the full match between Roman Reigns and Jinder Mahal from Money in the Bank 2018.
You can see the video in its entirety below:
It looked, at first, like that would be the story of the night at WWE Money in the Bank. Mahal dodged an early Drive-By, and Sunil Singh, who came to the ring in a wheelchair, proved to be as healthy as a horse when he sprang up and hit Roman with a cheap shot by driving him into the ring post while the ref was distracted. The hostility of the Chicago crowd even appeared to help Mahal, as he whittled away against his opponent’s back. Even when Reigns began to rally, Mahal maintained control and stifled his sequences with power strikes and knees.
But Mahal couldn’t close. Reigns hung tough against Jinder, and Mahal began to get more and more frustrated down the stretch, allowing Reigns to take advantage with some timely strikes of his own. He even thwarted another attempted interference from Singh, Superman Punching him out of the chair before spearing him halfway out of his shoes. Mahal, once again, seemed to be nearing victory in the chaos when he rolled Reigns up through the ropes, but The Big Dog kicked out and finally revved up into a match-ending Spear.
I still remember when this match was made and thinking that the fans would boo this match to the ground. And honestly, part of me thinks that WWE put these two together in order to troll the WWE Universe, and it worked. However, the match was good as both superstars are very talented!
