This week's episode of Monday Night Raw saw Roman Reigns attacked by his WrestleMania 32 opponent Triple H at the end of the show, to a point where he was battered, bruised, and covered in bloodied.

As seen in the YouTube video,  The Game repeatedly smashed The Big Dog's head on the announce table until he started to bleed all over his face. It looked like he was seemingly busted open.

However, this may not be the case.

A Facebook user by the name of Jamez Wood has posted a video which shows an alternative angle to the attack. His clip shows what wasn't seen during the broadcast as the cameras cut away from Reigns and followed Triple H as he walked away from the announce table.

During that time, the clip shows commentator Byron Saxton handing Roman what could be a blood capsule, in order to add effect to the beating. Then Triple H came back and continued the beat down.

It's always going to be a mixed opinion on blood in the WWE. Some fans like it as it adds realism to the beat down, but Vince McMahon hates it as it doesn't fit into the PG era. Looking at this situation involving Triple H and Reigns, he may have authorised it on this occasion, but we can't say for certain.

However, using blood capsules is definitely better for the WWE than blading, as the blood used in a segment is controllable and limited. 

Roman Reigns will clash against Triple H at WrestleMania 32 for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on April 3.
