WWE delivered yet another solid episode of Friday Night SmackDown this week but the clear highlight of the show was Roman Reigns’ continued run of dominance over the rest of the blue brand in the form of a Hell in a Cell Universal title defense against Rey Mysterio.
I was surprised at Mysterio getting so much offense in early but it served the match well. He’s also one half of the SmackDown tag team champions. No shame in losing to Reigns — it’s a popular thing to do. Where you make something of yourself is in how good the match was, and this was a damn good match.
