WWE released a story line update on the attack on Roman Reigns from this past Tuesday night’s edition of SmackDown LIVE on their official website.
As noted yesterday, WWE appears to be internally planning for his attacker to be revealed as Daniel Bryan, which would set up a match between the two at the WWE SummerSlam 2019 pay-per-view in just over a week.
“In the final moments of this week’s SmackDown LIVE, Roman Reigns was intending to make a SummerSlam challenge from the backstage area, but The Big Dog just barely evaded sheer catastrophe when tons of steel beams came plummeting toward him.
A preliminary investigation has found the incident Tuesday night involving Roman Reigns was caused by a forklift backstage carrying lighting grids that were not properly secured.
Update to story – 10:40 a.m. ET
It has now been determined that the incident in question was specifically caused by a forklift driver error.
Update to story – 12:10 p.m. ET
At this point, the identity of the forklift driver has not been determined.
