According to Fightful Select, Reigns was “visibly upset” after the main event. The rumor going around among those in the company is that Reigns took issue with an “unplanned spot” in the match with Kevin Owens.
When Reigns got backstage, he mentioned that he possibly had a ruptured eardrum and he wanted the spot to happen as was originally planned. Reigns reportedly made it clear to everyone that he wasn’t happy and there were expletives used.
Fightful added that sources they spoke with did not think that there would be any extended heat on Owens and the unplanned spot seemed to be done in the “heat of the moment,” but it was also noted that this is their source’s perception of things.
There have been no reports from backstage of a physical confrontation and talent that spoke to Fightful feels that both can be able to coexist and work together. Reigns, who was planned to be at the post-show press conference, did not appear. Instead, Paul Heyman and Sami Zayn spoke to the media after the show.
