Adam Pearce on WWE Universal Championship Match – “Sleep On Me, I Beg You”

Last updated

WWE on-screen figurehead and former NWA Champion Adam Pearce recently tweeted in reaction to his upcoming Royal Rumble match.

WWE held a gauntlet match on SmackDown to confirm a Number 1 contender for the Universal Championship; Daniel Bryan, King Corbin, Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn, and Rey Mysterio all competed in the bout.

Nakamura seemed to have won the match, eliminating Rey Mysterio, Baron Corbin, and Daniel Bryan. It was then revealed that Paul Heyman had ’˜pulled some strings’ to get Adam Pearce added to the match. Pearce would actually beat Shinsuke Nakamura.

Jey Uso and Roman Reigns would beatdown Nakamura, with Uso also hitting a Superkick to take down Adam Pearce. Uso would then drag Pearce onto Nakamura for him to get the win. Adam Pearce now goes on to the Royal Rumble to challenge for the Universal title.

Adam Pearce on Roman Reigns Match

The former National Wrestling Alliance Champion Adam Pearce recently tweeted his reaction to the match happening. Pearce would make it clear that he’s coming for Roman at the end of the month at WWE’s Royal Rumble PPV. ‘Of course I’m not in my wrestling ’˜prime’” Pearce wrote. “I haven’t had a match in 6+ years! But I didn’t ASK for this. With no choice but to fight, I’ve got to do whatever I can to make Roman feel EXACTLY like I did at the end of this match many years ago.’

‘And yes, I lost that match” Pearce said, referencing an ROH match (which you can see below). “I lost a championship that meant a lot to me. Lost a piece of myself. But in the process I learned a lot. A lot about me, a lot about the agony of defeat. A lot about how to avoid it. Again, I NEVER wanted this. But sleep on me, I beg you.’
