Roman Reigns is definitely having his best incarnation in WWE. He has been on a pretty amazing run since even just before he secured the Universal Championship 453 days ago now. But the rumblings have started: Is his time in WWE running up?

It’s a crazy notion for sure. Especially for recent wrestling fans. He has been such a staple for the program and overall product, it would be weird to see him go. After last night’s promo on SmackDown, many are indeed wondering if it is in fact possible. Can Roman Reigns be thinking of leaving WWE?

His promo was a mysterious one, especially when looking specifically at what was said. If you blinked, you missed it, but as it turns out, many were sharp enough to catch it. If you did miss it though, WWE on Fox’s Twitter reposted the moment, although they didn’t include the whole statement as it was worded in their Tweet.

“I’m your Tribal Chief. I’m the greatest of all time. And, when my days are done around here, which could be sooner than later, the whole world will acknowledge me.”


There are certainly those that believe this is just another way to get heat for Reigns and the product. It must be stated that he leaving is very possible though. He has left to work on movies before (Hobbs & Shaw) – something that he has the charisma for, very much like his cousin, The Rock. It was with him that he worked with in the aforementioned Hobbs & Shaw.

The ensuing storyline involving Brock Lesnar took an interesting turn. It was told to the audience by Kayla Braxton by the episode’s end last night, that Brock was released from his suspension and he would be returning to SmackDown next week.

Next week, Reigns is now set to face Sami Zayn, seeing that Zayn won the battle royal last night. But what does Brock’s presence mean for the Head of the Table? Can he finally be the one to dethrone the Tribal Chief? Questions, questions, questions. Overall a pretty good way to get people to tune in.
