In the end, The Demon climbed the top rope to take a leap on Reigns, but at the last seconds the top rope broke. There wasn’t any explanation as to why the rope broke, but it did. This helped Reigns secure the victory.

But, some of the fans are rather disappointed with WWE for making an ending that ruins Balor, but protects The Tribal Chief. In fact, fans don’t have a problem with WWE keeping Reigns the Universal Champion, but with the way it happened.

An ending where something like a top rope breaks, it’s not the best way to lose. Moreover, this was ending the undefeated streak of The Demon.

Almost everyone knew that WWE wouldn’t make Roman Reigns drop the title to The Demon. There’s a reason the company brought back Brock Lesnar, and that is to have The Beast dethrone The Tribal Chief.

However, even if the plan was to have The Beast dethrone Reigns, WWE could have given the fans a better ending.

Undoubtedly, the top rope breaking is related to either Lesnar or The Demon or someone, but so far even Roman Reigns is unaware about how the top rope actually broke.
