The unusual ending to last night’s WWE Extreme Rules main event has been met with a lot of criticism from fans.
As noted, WWE used a ring malfunctions angle, when the top turnbuckle of the entire ring collapsed abruptly and Balor then fell to the mat losing the match. He sold a knee injury and struggled to get back to his feet, giving Reigns enough time to hit a Spear and retain his Universal Championship.
Although fans have been flooding Twitter with negative messages about the finish, RAW Superstar Drew Gulak made light of the situation by reminding everyone of his PowerPoint presentation. Gulak tweeted:
And the moral of that story was: If you are about to win your match DO NOT CLIMB TO THE TOP ROPE! Thank you for coming to my PowerPoint presentation! #ExtremeRules
Meanwhile, Reigns tweeted his post-match reaction: “Above all else. #ExtremeRules.”
“The Demon” has now suffered his first-ever loss on the main roster. Balor’s alter ego previously lost to Samoa Joe during their time in NXT in 2016.
