However, possibly there’s a reason why WWE ensured Roman Reigns emerged victorious at Crown Jewel 2021. According to Dave Meltzer from Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the company wants to stretch the storyline between The Tribal Chief and The Beast till WrestleMania 38.

”The storyline on where Paul Heyman stands also couldn’t be resolved, as this is likely heading to WrestleMania, since right now there doesn’t appear to be anything on the horizon bigger.” h/t Sportskeeda

Roman Reigns won by because of a referee mishap

When Reigns and Lesnar were battling, The Beast executed a brutal F5 on The Tribal Chief. Unfortunately, when Reigns was dropped, the referee got injured.

But, the F5 was devastating enough to disable The Tribal Chief for a while. It was perfect for a pin, and The Beast went for it. Regrettably, the referee couldn’t do the count, and Lesnar had to let go.

The fight continued without an official for a while, but Heyman did something extremely shady. Instead of giving the belt to the Champion, he threw the belt between the two men. Both of them started a tug of war with the same.

If this would have been the end, Brock Lesnar would have been the new Universal Champion, considering he snatched the belt from Roman Reigns. But, The Bloodline is called so for a reason, and The Usos arrived and delivered a strong kick to Brock Lesnar.

The Tribal Chief took this moment to smash Lesnar, and pin him. By this time another official had arrived in the ring who counted to three, and Reigns walked away as The Universal Champion.
