Reigns grabbed a chair, McIntyre hit the Claymore but Reigns barely kicked out. Moments later, McIntyre hit the spear and the Claymore. He went to pin McIntyre but Solo Sikoa pulled the referee out of the ring. Sikoa pulled McIntyre’s neck across the rope and Reigns hit the spear to retain the title.
After the match, Fury went to the ring and he shook Reigns’ hand. Fury helped McIntyre up to his feet after Reigns and Sikoa left.
