Due to the beatdown he received from WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H on Raw, WWE subsequently claimed that Roman Reigns underwent nose surgery in Tampa this week.
Regarding both the “injury” Reigns sustained and the following surgery, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting Reigns was not in fact injured in the Triple H angle on Raw, but word going around Tuesday’s Smackdown tapings is that Reigns had a pre-existing condition with his nose that needed to be taken care of. There are still conflicting reports on if the surgery and the pre-existing condition are legitimate.
In related news, the blood spot on Raw this week, during which Byron Saxton apparently handed Reigns a blood packet, was planned and WWE officials expected things to get bloody, but they were surprised it looked as graphic as it did.
