The match started with Roman Reigns taking the first shot and immediately striking Woods with three punches at the turnbuckle before Woods showered Reigns with ten punches. Within a few minutes, the match went ringside, and Woods showed his dominance by keeping Reigns under attack.

However, The Tribal Chief soon gained back the dominance and smacked King Woods with an uppercut before smashing him through the announcers table. However, this match kept varying in terms of domination.

It was Roman Reigns who tried the first pin, but Woods kicked out.

As the match continued, King Woods started to realize why Reigns has gone undefeated in the past year.. It’s impossible to keep him down. But, there came a point where Woods completely dominated the match and smacked Reigns multiple times before attempting a pin, but failed.

Within a minute or two, Woods attempted a second pin, and FAILED!

The Tribal Chief tried to execute a spear but failed when Woods kicked him right in the face. Finally, Woods executed a splash on him from the top rope. Woods almost pinned him when The Usos came out of nowhere, pulled him out of the ring, and brutally attacked him with the steel steps.

The bell rang, and Woods won via DQ.
