Many fans wondered what was the point of Rollins & Ziggler, who weren’t a part of the match, taking such bumps.
According to the Wrestling Observer, the point was basically that WWE officials don’t want Roman Reigns & Braun Strowman to take any major bumps like that and it was basically a compensation for a ‘No Contest’ finish.
