The fan feels that Strowman crossed the line and that the segment was not entertaining as it resulted in Reigns being hospitalized. This, of course, was no different, from the old reliable Poochie references to GIFs of Sideshow Bob endlessly stepping onto one rake after another. Fresh off defeating The Undertaker at WrestleMania, Reigns was in the middle of an interview with Michael Cole when Braun Strowman began a vicious attack on RAW this week. The Reigns situation is pretty much unique: yeah, there's a history of faces and top stars getting booed by so-called "hardcore" fans, but never has a promotion stuck so long with a guy who has been so resoundingly refused by such a large portion of its audience.
Yesterday it was noted that Roman Reigns was still advertised for the Providence house show last night.
Is it too soon to say that'll be considered an iconic WWE moment?
Braun Strowman is a strong man.
WWE.com is reporting Reigns suffered a separated shoulder along with cracked ribs and other internal injuries. As such, Strowman vs. Reigns at Payback may be a theoretical number one contender match for Braun Lesnar's Universal Championship. Before joining WWE, Strowman, real name Adam Scherr, competed in strongman events.
WWE Payback 2017 airs live on the WWE Network on April 30th from the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
Before the ambulance could take Reigns to the hospital, Strowman lifted up the ambulance and tipped it over with Reigns still since.
