In a video posted on Reddit, Reinhardt uses his ultimate ability, Earthshatter, but fails gloriously and flies away. His team didn't keep the point, but he'll probably appear in the Play of the Game, which is most likely going to the enemy Roadhog.

The Reinhardt tried to ult from the second floor to get a 360 Earthshatter, but unfortunately for him, the enemy Roadhog was ulting and blew him up, up, and away.

Overwatch is unique because of its ultimate abilities. However, sometimes players waste them simply because an enemy started theirs first. If the Reinhardt had ulted before the Roadhog started Whole Hog or after it ended this clip never would have happened.

The clip was posted on r/Overwatch and had more than 12,000 upvotes within one day from being posted. The title, "Epic 360 Shatter" deceived everyone who clicked on it, but they were very amused. Many of them commenting, "that's a fat shatter" out of pure irony.

This isn't the only Reinhardt to die a depressing death to the enemy's crowd control.
