WWE Royal Rumble: Fans Aren't Happy With Reigns/Rollins Finish
The match between the two former members of the Shield, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins, was one of the most anticipated matches of this year's Royal Rumble, with the history between these two superstars being a long and complicated one. The brawl between these two former partners was one that got the crowd to their feet as they exchanged blows, but it is also one that many fans were ultimately disappointed with when it came to its ending, as Roman Reigns was disqualified as he refused to let go of a submission hold as Rollins held tight to the ropes.
Tonight's Royal Rumble apparently isn't the time for Roman's long-running, years-long reign as the Universal Champion, though Rollins certainly came far closer than many others to taking the belt from him, pinning the current "head of the table" for two and a half counts. Provoking and needling Roman throughout the night, Rollins was placed into the submission, ultimately disqualifying Reigns but not stopping him from unleashing a torrent of steel chair blows to Seth.
What did you think of the finish between Reigns and Rollins? How would you have ended the match that kicked off Royal Rumble? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of professional wrestling.
Is It Truly Over?
Rollins/Reigns is FAR from over.

It may be bullshit, but at least Roman isn't entering the #RoyalRumble match tonight. And maybe, at least maybe, Rollins vs Reigns at #WrestleMania 38— Alister C. (@McAlister_023) January 30, 2022
Roman Reigns such a bitch. Bro really gonna rob Rollins out this belt. #RoyalRumble— The Chile’ (@christiandimo23) January 30, 2022

At Least It Was A Good Match
Reigns/Rollins: Great match. Crap finish. #RoyalRumble— Xander (@Xander_P) January 30, 2022
Not So Mad
I'm not mad at that finish at all, same people moaning now would still be if Rollins or Reigns lost clean. Protect both guys, extend this out to the Bloody Money Chamber event. #RoyalRumble— K. Stoj (@kstojwwe) January 30, 2022
Not Real Heat
Rollins vs. Reigns (before the match ending): 🚽🚽🚽🚽
Rollins vs. Reigns match ending: 💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩💩
That’s not real heat. That’s the crowd booing in disappointment that it’s the same old shit.#RoyalRumble— Billy Donnelly (Director’s Cut) (@infamouskidd) January 30, 2022
Decided to give #WWE a chance. Really interesting opening match between Rollins and Reigns that they ruin with a DQ finish. Keep being you, Vince. #RoyalRumble— Don O'Brien (@DOB23) January 30, 2022
