Roman Reigns led The Bloodline to victory over Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, and The Brawling Brutes at the men’s WarGames match last Saturday. During the match, however, Kevin Owens confronted The Tribal Chief and slapped him across the face, allegedly rupturing his eardrum. Needless to say, Roman Reigns was not happy about that at all.

According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there was a backstage controversy after the show. There was a noticeable, large bruise under Reigns’ left eye. Reigns was enraged and yelled at Owens backstage.

Numerous sources claim that Reigns was irate because of the injury as well as the fact that it wasn’t a spot he was aware of and that doing it in the match didn’t make sense to him. Reigns was visibly enraged, but by 20 minutes later, it had mostly died down.
