Reigns doesn't seem to be having the best time with head injuries, as this is the second time he is being busted open this month, after bleeding at the hands of Brock Lesnar at WM 34!
But fortunately, it doesn't seem like the injury was too serious this time, as Reigns was seen talking to the fans after the match. As of this writing, there has been no official word about the injury either.
