Reigns stacked the lifeless body of Edge onto the lifeless body of Bryan as referee Charles Robinson counted all four shoulders down, declaring Reigns the victor.
However, some fans believe Edge should be declared the winner as he was technically pinning Bryan.
Adam Pearce commented on the controversy on social media and believes the takes are "interesting."

On this #GratiTuesday I’m grateful for THE DICTIONARY, which affords me the opportunity to understand that saying someone has an “interesting take” on something does not actually in any way imply that I agree, accept, or adopt it as my own. ------ pic.twitter.com/vqMqYD4z4H— Adam Pearce (@ScrapDaddyAP) April 13, 2021
Charles Robinson explained his reason for declaring Roman the winner, saying, "Four shoulders were on the mat. Roman was on top of both and in charge. It’s my discretion and that’s the final call."
Pearce would like to discuss matters, though they may just end up hugging it out.
Charles, please come and see me in my office on Friday. Thank you.— Adam Pearce (@ScrapDaddyAP) April 12, 2021
No. @WWERobinson and I will hug each other like we always do on Friday and those moments are for us and us alone.— Adam Pearce (@ScrapDaddyAP) April 13, 2021
It is unknown if WWE will actually address the matter on Friday's SmackDown.
