Keeping kayfabe alive WWE, good job.
A preliminary investigation is underway to find out who tried to murder Roman Reigns on this past week’s episode of SmackDown Live. Roman was walking down a corridor when some metal rigs (which had a camera on) nearly fell on him.
Roman escaped unhurt, but HR has had a word and WWE has decided it needs to find out who did it.
WWE has released the following statement on its website:
Investigation details on Roman Reigns’ backstage incident on SmackDown LIVE
In the final moments of this week’s SmackDown LIVE, Roman Reigns was intending to make a SummerSlam challenge from the backstage area, but The Big Dog just barely evaded sheer catastrophe when tons of steel beams came plummeting toward him.
A preliminary investigation has found the incident Tuesday night involving Roman Reigns was caused by a forklift backstage carrying lighting grids that were not properly secured.
Check back with WWE.com for more details as they become available.
We do now know of course that the plan is for Daniel Bryan to be revealed as the attacker, but it’s good to see that WWE is doing its best to keep things as kayfabe as possible.
