The drastic change in character for Roman Reigns over the years remains one of the best changes in recent memory. He went from being an utterly dull babyface to one of the most compelling heels in WWE. He also isn’t a stranger when it comes to accolades in the company.
As reported earlier, Roman Reigns tested positive for COVID-19. Due to this, he was pulled from his WWE Universal Championship match against Brock Lesnar. Lesnar would go on to take part in the WWE Championship match and ended up winning to become the new champion.
While speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Big E revealed that he had no idea Roman Reigns wasn’t going to compete at WWE Day 1 until hours before the event.
“I got to the building thinking we were going to have our four-way. I didn’t know about Roman being unavailable until that afternoon, a few hours before the show. That threw a wrench into our match, as well as ripple effects to Raw and SmackDown,”
The company is currently building up a feud between Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns, where a title change could take place as well. We will have to see whether Seth Rollins will end up beating Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship or not.
