Latest on Roman Reigns being ‘furious’ backstage

Last updated

It was recently reported that Roman Reigns was ‘furious’ backstage following an incident that took place at the Survivor Series Premium Live Event.

Reigns was apparently livid that an unplanned spot between him and Kevin Owens took place, where KO actually legitimately slapped Reigns and bruised him under his left eye.

Writing in this week’s issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer revealed that the situation seemed to cool off shortly after it took place.

“Reigns was obviously furious, but it largely blew over by 20 minutes later. Others said that wasn’t accurate in the sense it wasn’t completely blown over, that Reigns was upset, but it’s not like they are changing any plans in booking or he won’t work with Owens or there will be any punishment or anything like that” Meltzer revealed.

“It fell into the category of sh*t that happens but the idea was that after Zayn got over doing what was not supposed to be a long-term gimmick, that Reigns pretty much picked Owens and Zayn personally to work a long program with and the idea is he could have picked any two people on the roster to elevate and those were the ones he picked” Meltzer revealed.

“Zayn got that spot because of how well the crowd took to him in the short-term program and Owens made sense with their history and because he can talk and is a great performer” he added.

“But there was the idea he didn’t have to pick him or either of them and did, and was mad because something happened that he felt with his character should not have happened, and he also got hurt. But as noted, it’s not like he was mad to the point of wanting the plans in place to change” Meltzer concluded.
