Several people who attended last night’s SmackDown tapings in Omaha, Nebraska reported that Roman Reigns appeared to have hurt his ankle during a six-man tag match against Randy Orton, Sheamus and Kofi Kingston. The spot happened when Reigns was on the ring apron with Orton. Reigns was seen limping around the ring during the end of the match, and he was helped to the back by a referee after the finish. The Shield suffered a post-show beatdown by the faces, but only Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins were involved.
