Roman Reigns has always been in the headlines since his phenomenal reign as the Universal Champion started back in 2020. However, the Tribal Chief shocked the pro wrestling fraternity by talking about his plans on taking a hiatus in a recent WWE live event.
Speculations and rumors began to spread like fire. Various reports suggested that Reigns was taking a sabbatical from Vince McMahon’s company. Reports were suggesting that the former Shield member was planning to venture into Hollywood.
Now the latest report from Sean Ross Sapp is contrasting with the previous ones. As per Ross Sapp, Roman Reigns was factored into the creative plans of WWE for the foreseeable future. This is quite contradictory to the initial reports that emerged suggesting the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion taking time off from the company.
“WWE sources had claimed to us that Roman Reigns was “factored into their creative plans for the foreseeable future.” I don’t know how that bodes for reports of him having time off this summer and we’ve not got that word from WWE.”
Roman Reigns will be appearing in lesser WWE house shows
Roman Reigns appeared in many WWE house shows recently. However, that is set to change if reports are to be believed.
It was earlier reported by Dave Meltzer during the Wrestling Observe Radio that Roman Reigns has signed a new deal with WWE. This will see him perform in a far lesser number of house shows than he is doing now.
“It’s not it for him, but the situation is that he got a new deal and the new deal is for far less dates. So, he’s not going to do be doing — I don’t know how many house shows he’ll be doing, but it’s going to be far less house shows than he is doing now.”
The WWE Universe will still be okay with this. However, if Reigns decided to leave WWE, it would create a big hole for the company. Reigns has been the face of WWE for quite some time. He is currently holding both the world titles. There seems to be no one on the roster that WWE has pushed enough to be a believably serious competition for the 36-year-old.
