  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I still think WWE has seen the light on Roman Reigns an is not going to be putting the Unversal title on him. They are now building Braun Strowman to take the Unversal title from Lesnar at Summerslam.

  • BiggEZ

    It happened like that so as to probably give Reigns one final shot at Lesnar.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    They will not give Roman Reigns the Unverlasial Champion like that.

  • Wolfie

    Actually his back didn’t hit the ground. It was still on the piece of cage.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    It don’t matter the ref decision is final. Brock Lesnar is still WWE Unverlasial Champion. Brock Lesnar back also hit the ground first.

  • Cyclops

    Yup, agreed, the cage match rules are the winner is the first one to have both feet touch the floor, which clearly Roman’s feet hit first as Brock’s feet were still on the fence, major screw up.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    So they are giving the winner of the Greatest Royal Rumble a new title belt.

  • Wolfie

    Well that was BS. Roman’s feet hit the actual ground first therefore he won. Ref (writers really) got it wrong.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Watch HHH eliminates John Cena in the Royal Rumble now. But HHH had to put Cena over in there 1 on 1 match to save face for John Cena.
