Kicking off the main card of WWE Super Showdown, Seth Rollins defends his Universal Championship against Baron Corbin.

Corbin took advantage of the injured Rollins early, attacking his injured mid-section. However, over the course of the match, Corbin continued to intimidate the referee. Finally, the referee had enough and stood up to Corbin, getting in his face and backing Corbin away.

Rollins got the roll-up pin for the three count as Corbin backed away. Corbin beat down Rollins post-match, and Brock Lesnar’s music hit, and out he came with a steel chair, Paul Heyman, and the Money In The Bank briefcase. Rollins was able to fend “The Beast” off and nailed Lesnar with a curb stomp on the briefcase.

Lesnar wasn’t able to get the cash-in, and Rollins retreated backstage. Check out a breakdown of the match courtesy of our own Bill Pritchard:

WWE Universal Championship Seth Rollins (c) vs. Baron Corbin

Rollins connects with an early dropkick, but Corbin suplexes Rollins on the ropes and stomps his injured ribs. Corbin connects with some body shots and continues to work over the injury on the mat. Corbin taunts the crowd and throws a few more shots, but Rollins sends Corbin outside and hits a topé into the announce table. Rollins sends him back outside on the opposite side of the ring and hits another dive, then heads up top but Corbin cuts him off and attempts a chokeslam. Rollins counters with a pin attempt for two, then Rollins goes for a superkick but Corbin sidesteps him and connects with an elbow to the head. Corbin slams him down and gets a two count, then he flips out on the referee for a bad count and almost gets caught with The Stomp. Corbin counters with Deep Six, then he confronts the referee again and screams that the match could have / should have already been over. Corbin runs into a back elbow and falls outside, then he runs back in with a chair and the referee yells at him to stop. Corbin reluctantly throws the chair outside and goes back to screaming at the referee, but the ref finally has had enough and screams back, then Rollins rolls Corbin up and gets the three count to retain.

Winner – Seth Rollins

Corbin attacks Rollins after the bell and hits End Of Days, then Brock Lesnar comes to the ring with a steel chair, Paul Heyman, his Money In The Bank contract and a new referee. Lesnar winds up with the chair, but Rollins low blows Brock and picks up the chair and unloads on him with it. Rollins continues to hit Lesnar in the back with it over and over, taunting him about cashing in before asking Brock how it feels before hitting him a few more times. Brock tries to get up, but Rollins backs into the corner and Curb Stomps Brock’s head onto the briefcase, ending the segment without a cash-in… and it was noted that Brock still has his contract as the match never started.
