Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens, Tables, Ladders, and Chairs
As Bryan mentioned, since his return in August, Roman has been killing it, and he has such amazing chemistry with KO that this was always going to be a banger.

That’s it. Just traded kicks until Ibushi could barely stand and Taichi couldn’t at all. The most unique match of 2020.
