Sunday night WWE Backlash aired on the WWE Network, and despite the fact that the pay-per-view featured a WWE Championship match, it was Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe that closed the show. Reigns vs. Joe wasn’t exactly well received by the fans in attendance, and many of them decided to get up and leave before the match ended.

Roman Reigns has been on the receiving end of a huge push over the last few years, and Vince McMahon continues to push him as the top face despite the mixed reaction he receives from the fans.
Slice Wrestling is reporting that Vince McMahon was not happy about the fans leaving the venue before the main event was over, and the reaction was said to be a big eye opener for Vince.
