FULL MATCH - Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe: WWE Backlash 2018

From WWE.com:

Joe ambushed Reigns before the bell and sent him crashing through the Spanish announce table with a Uranage, kicking off a strategy that began with Reigns trapped in holds that targeted his shoulders for minutes on end and culminated in a series of Coquina Clutch attempts that The Big Dog narrowly managed to avoid.

Joe’s strategy was as rudimentary as it was effective. Even when Reigns landed a thunderous Spear, Joe was close enough to the ropes to stop the pinfall, and The Samoan Submission Machine only turned up the heat when he felt it was time to lock in his near-ironclad submission hold. When Joe finally applied the Clutch, grapevine legs and all, Reigns seemed to be drifting into unconsciousness before he rolled over with a last-ditch effort to grab the ropes and force a break.

Perhaps feeling desperation for the first time in the match, Joe perched Reigns atop the turnbuckle to set up a Muscle Buster, but when The Big Dog leaped over his opponent’s head, Joe drove himself head-first into the turnbuckle. Seizing his opening, Reigns administered a final Spear to score the pinfall.

Editor’s Opinion:

In no surprise to anyone, this was an absolute war and I loved every minute of it. It’s no wonder why they are considered two of the very best in the world.
