Baron Corbin has the honor of being the last person to pin current WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Going into the WWE TLC pay-per-view in December 2019, Reigns and Corbin – called King Corbin at the time – were engaged in a heated rivalry. The two then faced off in the Tables, Ladders & Chairs signature match stipulation, which saw Corbin walk away as the winner after pinning Reigns, with outside help.
Their feud then dragged on into the new year, before ending near the end of February 2020. One of their final matches included a non-televised fight after the live edition of “SmackDown” on February 28. The respective match finally aired on WWE YouTube on Thursday morning, as the channel reached 92.5 million subscribers. As a thank you, Corbin, WWE Hall of Famer JBL, and Kayla Braxton and Matt Camp of “The Bump” watched and commented on Corbin’s unaired match with “The Tribal Chief.”
As the bell rang, Corbin slipped out of the ring twice to escape any blockage with Reigns. The third time, Corbin stood on the apron, driving off the huge boos of the Boston, Massachusetts crowd. With his back turned, Reigns slapped him in the face, sending him flying to the ground. Reigns then took control of the match from the outside, throwing Corbin into the ring barricade and the announce table, before throwing him back into the ring.
Corbin would then take control with an inner thigh kick from Reigns, dominating the majority of the game, before grabbing a microphone to taunt local New England Patriots fans. This opened a window of opportunity for Reigns to regain his composure. After about ten minutes of competition, Reigns finally put Corbin away with a Superman Punch and a spear.
