If you were in attendance for last night's WWE live event in Toronto, Ontario, Canada you were probably disappointed with the way it all ended. 

WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns is currently locked into a feud with former NXT Champion Samoa Joe, which is why the pair have been working with one another at live events this past week. During the pair's match last night, however, the bout came to an abrupt end after Joe was cut open.

Joe was cut above his eye at one point in the match and was bleeding profusely down his face. After tossing Reigns into the barricade he was attended to by medical staff and had his face cleaned.

"The Destroyer" kept telling WWE officials he was okay to continue the match, but the referee decided to call off the match, which was the main event of the night, and ended the show.

You can check out the chain of events in the video below. The video shows Joe bleeding before tossing Reigns into the barricade, medical staff attending to Joe, the referee calling the match off, and Joe protesting the referee's decision:

This won't be Joe's last crack at Reigns and his Intercontinental Title. It was announced by Monday Night RAW General Manager on Twitter that Reigns and Joe will go head-to-head tomorrow night on RAW for the Intercontinental Title.

In an interesting stipulation, however, if Reigns is disqualified the way he was last week on RAW then he will lose his championship:

With the Royal Rumble approaching quickly and Reigns soon expected to begin the build-up to his WrestleMania match with Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title, it should be interesting to see how WWE handles Reigns Intercontinental Title run.

It's unknown if he'll retain the title heading into WrestleMania, but it's expected he will drop it before facing Lesnar at "The Show Of Shows."

What are your thoughts on WWE stopping the match between Reigns and Joe at the live event due to blood? Do you think that the company should've stopped the match due to the blood despite the fact it's not televised? Or were they taking as much precautions as possible to ensure the health of Samoa Joe? Have YOUR say in the comments section below, and the fourth episode of GiveMeSport’s WWE podcast is here!
