Roman Reigns vs Kevin Owens made official for the Universal Championship at WWE TLC. The two will face each other in a TLC match.

Kevin Owens has had very little creative direction in the last few months. However, when called upon, the former Universal Champion reminded everyone why the WWE holds him in such high regard. In just one promo, Owens managed to excite the Universe for a match they’ve seen several times before.
