While the Chief reportedly signed a new deal with WWE, it has been widely reported that his schedule will be less taxing. The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion is not advertised for any TV tapings or live events for July and August. However, Roman Reigns is now set to not compete at the next event, which takes place next month. It is expected that his next title match will be at the WWE Money In The Bank event.
At this point it is unknown what WWE will do with Drew McIntyre, or how they plan to explain Roman Reigns absences from television.
It is expected that Roman Reigns will be involved in the WWE Money In The Bank and WWE SummerSlam shows. Both of those are going to be stadium events, and he is going to be part of television to build those shows. It was noted that WWE has been advertising him for TV tapings he will appear at in the near future. With time announced at a limited number, The Tribal Chief is reportedly being advertised more than Brock Lesnar during his reign as champion.
Roman Reigns made headlines when he hinted that his schedule would be changing. This announcement piqued interest in the possible announcement of a reduced workload for Reigns.
“I’ve been here a couple of times in the past 10 years,” Reigns said after a live event in Trenton. “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.”
