Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that there was internal talk of keeping Roman Reigns off RAW this past week as “punishment” for his “shoot” interview on Brock Lesnar the week before.
The plan would have seen WWE suspended Reigns for a week due to his comments but they ultimately decided against that idea as it would be better for him to come out and responded to Paul Heyman’s promo instead.
“Things had gone back-and-forth during the week with the idea of keeping Reigns off the show, perhaps as a one-week suspension for “shooting” last week, but the decision was made that based on what happened last week that he should be on the show this week,” Meltzer wrote.
