Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns reportedly suffered an injury during The Bloodline's WarGames match against Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, and The Brawling Brutes at Survivor Series. Footage of the moment he sustained the injury is now circulating on social media.
Last Saturday, Sami Zayn led The Bloodline to victory over Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, and The Brawling Brutes in the men's WarGames match. During the bout, however, Kevin Owens confronted The Tribal Chief and slapped him across the face, allegedly rupturing Reigns' eardrum.
The Head of the Table was reportedly furious after the show and had a heated backstage altercation with Owens over the seemingly unplanned spot. Although the eardrum injury is still unconfirmed, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer has confirmed that Reigns had noticeable bruising under his left eye.
