Backlash was a long pay-per-view that saw Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe in the last match of the night. Since fans had already seen if Shinsuke Nakamura would leave New Jersey as WWE Champion, tons of fans flocked to the exits during the main event.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE doesn’t find themselves in the same position at all right now where Roman Reigns could possibly headline the card.
“I think they have this idea that since it’s against Jinder they are going to cheer Roman Reigns but that’s not going to happen. They’ll boo both guys they are going to put this in the middle [of Money In The Bank] because they’re not going to put that on last that would be insane.”
So if you were worried Reigns vs Mahal could headline the next PPV, it doesn’t look like that will be the case unless they wanted to see if they could get even more fans to leave this time around.
