So far SummerSlam 2019 in Toronto has five Championship matches.
You can find the odds which denote match victory probability at top online sportsbooks across the internet.
We’ve also seen some recent additions to the SummerSlam event card. Like The Miz and Dolph Ziggler, and the Charlotte Flair versus Trish Stratus on Kings Court. But what about the Roman Reigns shenanigans?
Kayla Braxton screaming, attempted murder, hidden cameras … it was a complete and total mess.
While Roman Reigns was making his way through one of the backstage corridors to speak with Kayla Braxton, a large section of rigging was suddenly shoved over in an attempt to smash the WWE star to death!
There has been a ton of speculation as to ‘who done it’. First, it was Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe. Then Shane McMahon and even Seamus! However, it was all thrown to the wind as a Tweet from @RainbowWarrior17 went viral. The picture shows Buddy Murphy walking away from the general area shortly after.
My one question is if there were so many camera angles, to capture this event, how come none of them got the perpetrator? And who took that Instagram shot during in the mere seconds that Reigns was under debris … How’d they get a closeup shot of Reigns right in the scaffolding/rigging? And how did the paramedics get there so quickly? Kayla screamed for help and the emergency response team literally showed up in the blink of an eye. Furthermore, why were the paramedics both 6’4, chiseled and muscle-bound – not very realistic, WWE … come on. Another question, why didn’t Roman Reigns show any anger at being brutally attacked? Why didn’t he rush through the hallways looking for the attempted murderer?

I feel like the WWE missed the mark with this part of the story. But hey, it’s just my opinion. We are likely going to learn a lot more next week as the followups come out. Was it in fact, Buddy Murphy? And if so, will Roman Reigns challenge him to a Singles Match at SummerSlam in Toronto? I mean … that seems light for an attempt on someone’s life. Maybe he should press charges instead?
Will Roman Reigns go after Bryan? This whole thing sets up their feud quite nicely. Perhaps Reigns challenges Daniel Bryan, thinking it was him when all along it was Buddy Murphy, and the plot gets twisted around with more intrigue!
One thing the WWE did hit the mark on is the open-ended-ness of this segment. There are so many different ways they can take this new addition to the storyline. The possibilities are almost endless. We could see a feud develop between Roman Reigns and any number of people. Plus, we could see something like the real attacker acting like a puppet master, feeding fuel to the fire while all along it was him … or her?
We’ll have to wait until the next installment of RAW to know more. What do you think will happen? Let us know in the comment section!
