An unscripted slap has been the topic of much discussion among fans since since it was reported that Roman Reigns was upset about an unexpected slap by Kevin Owens at Survivor Series WarGames.
Given how highly experienced Kevin Owens is, many people think it was just a rare case scenario, but some have called for him to remain disciplined.
The Bloodline led by The Tribal Chief won the WarGames battle that featured as the main event of the show, against the team of Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, and Brawling Brutes.
The Tribal Chief and Kevin Owens got into a fistfight in the battle’s dying seconds, throwing blows at one another.
Unfortunately, KO allegedly managed to tear Reigns’ eardrum with a slap that he delivered to him at one point. Reigns became irate since this was not covered in the script.
Despite the flawless conclusion of the match by all wrestlers, Reigns had a swear word filled rant backstage about the ear-damaging & unforeseen slap.
Thankfully, it was reported that the tense situation was escalated within 20 minutes. Following the public disclosure of the altercation, WWE fans have begun tweeting their thoughts.
Some netizens felt that Kevin Owens needed to be punished for deviating from the script and damaging Roman’s ear, with some even going so far as to suggest that Owens should be fired.
However, the general consensus seemed to be that it was just an one-off accident and shouldn’t be overly emphasised.

Open hand slap to the ear that ruptured his ear drum, but I’m sure you could take it no problem.
