Not the intended result. With so many wrestlers and characters on WWE television, it can make sense to put them together and see what they can do as a combined force. Some of these instances work a lot better than others and that has been the case as of late on Monday Night Raw. That being said, one such group seems to be no more, but the split resulted in a surprise ending.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Reginald accidentally cost Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler a tag team match against Natalya and Tamina. Reginald’s distraction allowed Tamina to superkick Baszler and score the pin. After the match was over, Jax headbutted Reginald and left with Baszler, seemingly ending Reginald’s association with the team. Reginald’s night was not done yet though.
After Jax and Baszler left, 24/7 Champion Akira Tozawa ran to the ring, with the regular group of challengers chasing after him. Reginald attacked Tozawa and gave him a running flipping seated senton to win the title for the first time. Following the title change, Reginald ran off from the other challengers, not to be seen again for the remainder of the show. This is Reginald’s first title in WWE.
This was quite the surprise. Check out the split and title change, plus what else Reginald has done in WWE:
Opinion: If Reginald is going to have to be on WWE television, this is about as good of a use for him as there is. Reginald is not a trained wrestler but he is a trained acrobat, which makes the running and escaping make things a lot more appropriate. I’m not sure how long something like this is going to last, but it isn’t like the 24/7 Title has ever meant anything in the first place.
What do you think of the change? How will Reginald do with the title? Let us know in the comments below.
