Roman Reigns won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on Raw and dedicated this win to his daughter on her birthday.
Roman Reigns may have lost to Sheamus at WWE TLC thanks to League of Nations interference, but he didn’t have to wait long to get his redemption. Reigns earned another title match on Raw the following night and was able to overcome several more instances of interference to capture the title for the first time in his career. In itself, it was a fantastic moment. However, it was even more special for Roman as the win also came on his daughter’s birthday.
In the opening segment of Raw, Roman gave his daughter a shout out in his promo before he would go on to capture the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Once the show was over and the title was in his hands, though, Reigns took to Twitter to dedicate the huge win to the birthday girl.
Happy Birthday JoJo…This one is for you! Thank you, Philly. #CompleteTurnaround

There’s no question that this moment would have been unforgettable for Reigns no matter what; every professional wrestler remembers the first time they gain a company’s top prize. However, it’s all the more important considering that it was his daughter’s birthday and that the win was, in Reigns’ words, all for her.
