However, it was after the match when the WWE Universe noticed a subtle Easter egg upon the comeback of a superstar, or perhaps an ex-WWE superstar.

Before the main event could start, The Usos suddenly attack Balor at ringside and destroy him, using the barrier and the steel ring steps, crushing his chest in the process.

The attack continued when The Usos dragged Balor into the ring and go to the top for the ‘Uso Splash’ but The Street Profits intervened and saved Balor.

Roman Reigns decimates Finn Balor

The WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns with Paul Heyman came out after Usos’ did the damage to Balor, who was lying in the ring defenseless.

Right off the bat, Reigns launched Balor across the ring with ease. He then stomps away while Balor was down in the corner. During the match, there were several moments when it felt like Balor will go home with the title, but Reigns had other ideas.

Eventually, Balor passed out after Reigns applied the Guillotine in the middle of the ring, and the referee called for the bell.

A new opponent for Reigns?

After the match, Reigns stands tall in the middle of the ring as his music hits. As he was making his way out, a red light and a heartbeat that plays over the arena briefly interrupted Reigns’ music.

Even WWE’s Twitter handle acknowledged this subtle red light.

Interestingly, this subtle Easter egg might hint at the comeback of ‘The Demon King’ persona of Finn Balor. The red light and the faint heartbeat sound are both parts of The Demon King’s entrance.

If it’s not ‘The Demon King’, then WWE could’ve hinted at the comeback of Bray Wyatt. Roman Reigns won the WWE Universal Championship by dethroning The Fiend at SummerSlam 2020.

One more reason the ‘Red Light’ might indicate Wyatt’s return is that WWE has sold The Fiend’s merchandise on their website.
