However, there was one thing that stood out from the entire main event match of the show, and no, it was not the dramatic power-up of Finn Balor.

Since it was an ‘Extreme Rules’ match, there were no count-outs or disqualifications. So naturally, both the superstars went outside the ring to fight. The highlight was that Roman Reigns was fighting amongst the crowd wearing a COVID protective mask, and the fans on the internet couldn’t get enough of it.

However, things got better, and he made his comeback, but once COVID-19 struck the United States and all the countries of the world, Reigns took some time off wrestling just to make sure he doesn’t catch the virus.

Moreover, that short hiatus from WWE just days before WrestleMania gave the WWE’s creative team an ample amount of time to figure how to make Roman relevant again. It was at this point that his journey as a marquee heel truly began.
