The latest pay-per-view of WWE, Extreme Rules the last big event of the company, was presented by McMahons, for audiences around the globe on 26th September, Sunday. In the main event of the evening, the WWE Universal Champion of Friday Night Smackdown, Roman Reigns and his current enemy number one: Finn Balor, in the “demon” version, clashed.
After months of absence, Balor had in fact had to draw his weapon best, namely the demon, to try to beat the Tribal Chief of the McMahon company, who has so far never fallen into battle against anyone, cleanly, since his titled win last year, when he snatched the title from the company’s Fiend: Bray Wyatt.
The controversial end between Roman Reigns and Finn Balor
Before we dive into the criticism, it is important to acknowledge that the Extreme Rules main event started off on a great note. In fact, Roman Reigns and Finn Balor were brilliant until the final moments of the match.
They had the crowd rallying behind them throughout their battle. The subtleties of their story-telling were intriguing for most of the Universal Championship match at Extreme Rules. This time, Demon Finn Balor came very close to beating the Tribal Chief of the blue show, except that in the highlight of the match, the ropes of the ring did not work properly, causing the athlete to fall clumsily in the ring and also bringing him damage to a leg.
All this obviously favored Reigns, who hit Balor with his devastating Spear. Balor thus lost yet another title chance. While Finn Balor was ready to hit his opponent with his finisher, in fact, the third rope of the ring post suddenly detached, causing surprise damage to the athlete, while the lights of the arena turned red.
Nobody expected this epilogue, least of all Balor, who was already ready to close the match with his Coup De Grace, which unfortunately never arrived. At the moment it is not known what is due to the malfunction of the ring, but it is clear that the thing was deliberately orchestrated by the company of the McMahons, with some background that could be revealed in the next episodes of the blue show, as early as Friday, with the episode dedicated to the company’s annual draft.
The one in frosty skin who could summon the sharp winds of winter and raise men from the dead melted like an ice cube kept on a concrete pavement at midday. That’s exactly what WWE did with “Demon” Finn Balor at Extreme Rules.
