Backstage Plans for Roman Reigns’ Return to RAW

Roman Reigns, who is out of action being he came down with the mumps, is expected to return to action within the next two or three weeks.

WWE plans to bring him back to be the Team Captain for the RAW brand for the upcoming 5 vs. 5 traditional Survivor Series event. WWE has made slight changes to the WWE Live Events in Europe, where Reigns is scheduled to team up with fellow Shield members. This implies that they do not expect him back until next week at the earliest.

It’s being speculated that WWE is holding off on the RAW brand retaliating on SmackDown until Reigns is cleared to return, as they are wanting him to lead the charge.
