At WWE’s Fastlane event, Roman Reigns defended his WWE Universal Championship against Daniel Bryan. During the match, Roman actually tapped out to YES! Lock from Bryan, but the referee had been taken out moments earlier.
The reigning Universal Champion sat down for an interview with Ariel Helwani on her MMA Show, and gave a rather sarcastic explanation of what went down. “The Head of the Table” and “Tribal Chief” told Ariel:
“I told Paul (Heyman), I’m over here hitting Morse code to Paul. He had my mouth covered. We’re so like in tune with history and everything, I was Morse coding with him, telling him to fire up a jet. That wasn’t a tap. And you’re from the MMA, they do (taps his shoulder) – that’s a tap, like you can hear the tap. I was just telling Paul, that’s all that was”.
Reigns will defend his WWE Universal Championship at Wrestlemania 37, in a Triple Threat Match against Daniel Bryan and Edge.
