While still maintaining his exalted status as “The Tribal Chief,” Roman Reigns emerged from the intense Tribal Combat clash at WWE SummerSlam 2023 with more than just victory – he bore the marks of the battle.
Intriguing insights from Dave Meltzer, shared on Wrestling Observer Radio via F4WOnline.com, shed light on the fact that the WWE Universal Champion sustained an injury during his headline bout against Jey Uso at the grand spectacle of “The Biggest Party of the Summer,” which unfolded within the electrifying confines of Ford Field in Detroit, MI.

The precise nature of this injury remains shrouded in ambiguity, yet it’s speculated that the infliction occurred in the early stages of the enthralling encounter, casting a shadow over the match’s proceedings.
Interestingly, WWE has made public their intentions to feature Reigns in a “Hail to the Chief” segment during the forthcoming episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown. Yet, the fog of uncertainty hangs over his participation in two future events – WWE Payback scheduled for September 2 and WWE Fastlane slated for October 7 – as his injury status leaves fans in anticipation.
