Got to beat the count. WWE has posted a new video to its YouTube channel in which they show the full Last Man Standing match between Roman Reigns and Kevin Owens for the Universal Championship from the 2021 Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
You can see the match in its entirety below:
The risks grew higher and higher as the brawl sprawled throughout the WWE ThunderDome. In one of the more terrifying scenes, Reigns launched KO off a high staging area through a table, but Owens got to his feet in the nick of time. Moments later, as Owens staggered into the backstage area, Reigns drove into him with a golf cart, sending Owens crashing through the plexiglass windshield. Still, Owens fought on.
When Reigns took the opportunity to mock Owens’ grandfather, as he did two nights ago on SmackDown, it awoke a new fighting spirit in the challenger, and Owens launched a revised attack that culminated with a senton off the top of a forklift through a table. Barely, Reigns regained his vertical base.
The battle then returned to the arena, where Reigns Speared Owens through the LED screens. Battered and beaten, Owens nonetheless had the wherewithal to roll off the stage and onto his feet. The Head of the Table later emerged with a pair of handcuffs, but Owens cleverly turned the tables and cuffed Reigns to a lighting rig. The referee nearly counted to 10, but Reigns stopped the count by pulling the official head-first into the steel structure.
Reigns followed with a low blow on Owens and, once freed from the handcuffs by Paul Heyman, locked on the Guillotine, rendering Owens unconscious and unable to answer the count of a replacement official.
Even in a virtual setting, these two show why they are two of the best in the world. This was awesome in every way, shape, and form and I can’t wait to see it again with fans in attendance, should that ever be the case!
