The fact that Reigns defeated Cody tonight at WrestleMania 39 has angered and irritated a significant portion of the audience.

WWE Chief Content Officer Triple H commented on Cody Rhodes’ defeat during the post-WrestleMania news conference as follows:
Perhaps a shocking result for a large number of individuals. In response to that, I’ll just state that I find it fascinating when people ask, “How can that happen?” or “How can they do that at that time?” This story almost flawlessly explains it. “I have to wrap this up,” you say. The tale never ends in the WWE. The narrative resumes on Raw tomorrow night. A new chapter of the narrative is required. We’ve just reached the chapter’s conclusion. The narrative goes on, and that’s when I start to find this intriguing. The fact that the narrative never ends is what makes our industry so amazing, according to Triple H. (source: Fightful)
