Roman Reigns was previously advertised for Hell in a Cell, but as per his new deal with WWE, Roman Reigns would have a schedule similar to that of Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns was removed from all house shows & live tv till labour day. It all started after Roman Reigns Trenton, NJ house show, he quotes
“I’ve been here many times, you know what I’m saying? I’ve been here a couple of times in the past 10 years. And I’m starting to work into a new phase in my career, and I honestly don’t know if I’ll be back here again. If that’s the case, I just wanna say thank you for all these years of support,”
WWE president Nick Khan talked about Roman Reigns in The Town Podcast, he quotes “We think he is certainly up there. We have big plans to help him cross over, which we think will be great for him and certainly great to do with him”. WWE also seems to be supportive of his likely transition to hollywood.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer also noted ” He was removed from all the shows, his last show would be June 19 until Labour day. “I’m trying to get more information on this, but he was removed from all shows, his last show is June 19th until after Labour Day. I don’t know what the situation is other than he is scheduled for the two pay-per-view shows. All TV, all house shows. I don’t know what that is, whether he’s doing a movie. Obviously, we already know his schedule going forward after June is going to be cut back anyway, but there will be a period where he won’t even be on because he’s been removed from all the advertisements.”
We still don’t know WWE takes Drew & Roman Reigns storyline without Roman Reigns in ring presence. It is pretty obvious Roman Reigns will be present in marquee pay-per view events.
