Roman Reigns has been on a whole different level following his return to WWE during WWE SummerSlam 2020. He continues to improve as a competitor in front of fans and only becomes more dominant with each passing day. The real meaning behind his recent mysterious promo was also revealed.
Roman Reigns has been a heel since he came back and fans couldn’t be happier for him. Reigns is comfortable in his current role and it is rare for Roman Reigns to break character.
During the WWE Trenton Saturday Night’s Main Event, Roman Reigns cut a promo where he seemingly hinted at stepping away from pro wrestling for good.
According to Fightful, it was reported that Roman Reigns is not leaving WWE anytime soon. While potential Hollywood endeavours could happen, WWE is the primary focus for Roman Reigns.
Fightful inquired with numerous people backstage in WWE after the promo, who say that he’s heavily figured into creative plans for the company for the foreseeable future and he’s not expected to leave “any time soon.” The prospect of him getting movie roles and eventually needing time off was something that many in WWE have expected for a long time, particularly once he landed a spot in the Hobbs & Shaw film.
However, producers, staff and higher ups said that they have not been informed of any extended scheduled time of for Roman Reigns. One source indicated to Fightful that Roman Reigns is likely to be accomodated and incentivized to keep WWE his priority after they’ve focused programming around him, as WWE doesn’t see an end in sight with him factored in.
This is a stark contrast from John Cena and The Rock, who aren’t expected by WWE to have full-time runs again. Another person in the company indicated that they believed Reigns was referencing that eventually his schedule will likely include less house show events. To put things in perspective, Roman Reigns has had three televised matches this year, 25 on house shows, and nine on dark matches. So while he’s taken a reduced on-screen wrestling schedule, he’s still on pace to wrestle over 100 matches this year.
Roman Reigns will be teaming up The Usos and duke it out against Drew McIntyre and Team RK-Bro at WrestleMania Backlash. He will be sticking with WWE for the long run and that is all that matters right now.
