Roman Reigns found his groove after coming back from a brief hiatus back in 2020. Since SummerSlam 2020, Reigns became The Tribal Chief and has dominated his competition. He defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38, but the Tribal Chief also might have suffered a legitimate injury in the process.
Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar have been engaged in a feud ever since SummerSlam 2021. After a lot of back and forth, the two duked it out once again at WrestleMania 38 Night 2.
The main event of WrestleMania Night 2 saw the two taking part in a title vs title winner takes all match. In the end, Roman Reigns won the match and became e Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
The ending of the match seemed anticlimactic and rushed for many. There could have been a reason for that, as revealed by photos provided on social media. Lesnar locked in a kimura lock and afterward Reigns could be heard telling Paul Heyman, “it’s out,” presumably meaning his shoulder.
Photos showed clearly showing major swelling on Reigns’ arms after Lesnar applied the Kimura Lock spot. On fan pointed out an apparent issue with Reigns’ arm after that kimura lock from Brock Lesnar.
Like I said. Roman Reigns got his shoulder split/separated/whatever in the Barricade spot. Lesnar also did something to his ribs not long after that. Both wrestled another 10+ minutes to that finish. Brock realizing that Roman’s arm was legit out.
It is not known whether Roman Reigns really did suffer a major injury. If he did pop that shoulder back into place and finish the match, then that’s why he’s the Head of the Table. Swelling does seem serious.
Reigns was able to raise both titles at the end of the night, but there was an obvious grimace on The Tribal Chief’s face. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing story.
