WWE referee Chad Patton took to Twitter to apologise for his decision following the controversial finish to the Steel Cage Match between WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at Friday’s Greatest Royal Rumble event in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The match would end with Reigns spearing Lesnar through the cage wall, causing The Beast to hit the floor first on his back. It is to be noted that according to the general rule of a typical Steel Cage match, the competitor whose feet first touch the ground is determined to be the winner.
I understand i made an incorrect decision & want to apologize. During the #UniversalTitle match at #WWEGRR, i saw Brock Lesnar go thru the cage first and was concerned for the health and safety of both superstars.

This is the second win for Lesnar over Reigns since the shocking finish to their championship match at WrestleMania 34.
