Two days ago, the WWE released a statement saying due to the beatdown administered by Braun Strowman, a man ostensibly strong enough to tip over an ambulance (which would make him the strongest man in the history of the world), Roman Reigns had suffered cracked ribs, internal injuries (plural) and a dreaded separated shoulder.
Yesterday it was noted that Roman Reigns was still advertised for the Providence house show last night.
This is what I said on Twitter yesterday afternoon:
Last night, word came in from the Dunkin' Donuts Center was that Roman Reigns would not be showing up at the event after all. He was said to be too injured to compete.
When this was announced in the arena, cheers went up from the majority of the crowd, and chants of "Thank You Strowman" broke out.
Braun cut a promo about whose yard it is now (Strowman said it was his yard, unsurprisingly) and then the unthinkable happened.
Roman Reigns came out.
BUT WAIT I THOUGHT HE WAS TOO INJURED TO COMPETE?!?!
IT'S A MIRACLE!
Roman's separated shoulder was all taped up (like DDP's ribs) and he was obviously
faking it in a lot of pain.
He brawled with Braun all around the ring, with Braun getting the better of things, until THIS HAPPENED:
Unless, of course, the whole thing about the injuries was a damn dirty lie, Roman Reigns is fine, and he's basically no-selling the beating inflicted on him by a monstrous giant bear-man WHO IS STRONG ENOUGH TO LIFT AN AMBULANCE.
Yes, I know the ambulance lifting was fake, but if you establish that Braun Strowman is strong enough to lift an ambulance in storyline, then in storyline, the injuries he inflicts on Roman Reigns need to keep him out of action for longer than four days.
Still, that's longer than I originally thought he'd be out:
