WWE recently surpassed 92.5 million YouTube subscribers, and as a way of saying thanks to the audience, they released a never-before-seen bout. The company will run dark matches before and after shows, only for the live crowd. Now, a battle between current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Baron Corbin is seeing the light of day after years under lock and key.

WWE released the Baron Corbin vs. Roman Reigns dark main event, which took place after the February 28, 2020, episode of SmackDown on FOX. On the set of The Bump, Corbin, WWE Hall of Famer JBL, Kayla Braxton, and Matt Camp can be seen watching the fight.

SmackDown took place in Boston, Massachusetts’ TD Garden on February 28, 2020. Reigns came out earlier that evening to interrupt WWE Hall of Famer Bill Goldberg, who had just won the new WWE Universal Championship by defeating “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt at WWE Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia the day before.

At WrestleMania 36, Reigns challenged Goldberg to a title fight; however, Reigns withdrew from the event due to COVID-19. The replacement was announced as Braun Strowman, and at WrestleMania, Strowman defeated Goldberg to win the belt. As a result, Wyatt defeated Strowman to win the championship at WWE SummerSlam that August. Reigns then defeated The Fiend to win the championship at WWE Payback, and he has defended it ever since.


It was quite a match that fans never got to see before tonight, unless you happened to be in that Boston crowd. You may check out the match below.
