Fans Do Rock Bottom During SmackDown
A group of fans managed to jump the rail and perform a Rock Bottom in the ring, during yesterday’s SmackDown taping at the O2 Arena in London, England. It will be interesting to see how they edit it out, since it was right in the middle of the main event.

Chris explained that at one point Reigns was taking 90 pills per day including erection pills just to get out of bed in the morning!
