Triple H did the job for Roman Reigns, then gave him an endorsement in Abu Dhabi

WWE made a big show of Triple H challenging Roman Reigns to an Intercontinental championship match on the second night of shows in Abu Dhabi, and they delivered on that as expected. In a not at all surprising result, Reigns pinned “The Game” after a spear to retain the title.

What came next was equally unsurprising.

Samoa Joe, Cesaro, and Sheamus hit the scene to beat on Reigns, setting him up for Triple H to join in. Instead, he turned babyface, joining up with The Shield to fend them off. The night ended with Triple H endorsing Reigns with a handshake.

Even the title on the WWE released YouTube video above is “Roman Reigns earns Triple H’s respect.”
