Speculation on Heat Between Big Show and Roman Reigns After Punch on Monday’s WWE RAW

– There has been some speculation among fans this week about real life tension between Roman Reigns and Big Show after Reigns’ punch to Show at Monday’s RAW may have knocked part of Show’s tooth out. Show appeared to suffer a mouth injury and Jerry Lawler even mentioned on commentary that it looked like Show spit out a tooth. It could be part of the angle but it appears Show was legitimately upset after the punch. Reader Danny Ryder passed along the following GIFs from RAW:

  • Keith Learmonth

    They changed the closed fist rule about 10 years ago.

    It’s now “When using closed fists, you must stop before a 5 count”.

    As for the war wounds thing, even Nikki Bella had a tooth knocked clean out by a Tamina superkick once, and she just kind of went. “Well, it’s a rough business, and this is what can happen”… so I doubt Big Show would be too pissed by this.

    Who was it a couple of years ago who knocked out one of Jerichos teeth? Cant remember off hand (think it was Fandango), but I do remember Jericho just shrugged it off and called it a war wound.
    I still dont get how Show and Reigns can use a punch as a finisher/signature move seeing as closed fists are supposed to be illegal in wrestling.

    Show also said he was going to beat the f#%k out him too during the same spot

    Amongst fans?! FANS! We I too have some speculations,who do I email for the storys?

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I agree. I didn’t see anything either. And I’m sure Show would say something and they would figure it out, doesn’t seem like Show is the type to be lists about an accident.

    I think it was a storyline spit. I didn’t see anything come out and there was no blood. Probably just hyping the story up. But you’re right. There needs to be more contact. This version of WWE reminds me of the 80’s when elbow shots to the head stopped about 4 inches about the head.

  • Shawn Bronald

    That’s because Show’s KO Punch couldn’t look more FAKE! Reigns delivered a realistic looking punch that didn’t fully land….. the way it’s supposed to be. I thought Show was an old school guy, guess not. Steve Austin would be proud of Reigns, he was always known as a stiff worker. I’d like for this style to come back and guys that can’t take it to step aside.
