WWE SmackDown is set to air on Friday, April 7th, and fans are eagerly anticipating what the episode will bring. One thing that may be missing is Roman Reigns, the current Universal Champion.

According to a report from WRKD Wrestling on Twitter, Reigns is not scheduled to appear on tonight’s episode of SmackDown. While this news may come as a disappointment to some fans, the show is still set to feature an intriguing segment that could further the storyline between Paul Heyman and Jey Uso.

Please keep in mind that things are currently volatile and things can change on a whim:

Currently, Roman Reigns is not scheduled for #Smackdown tomorrow night, but there is slated to be a segment that leads to further tension between Paul Heyman and Jey Uso.


It’s worth noting that things in the wrestling world can change quickly and without warning. While Reigns may not currently be scheduled for the episode, it’s possible that plans could shift and he could make an appearance after all.

The absence of Reigns on SmackDown may come as a surprise to some fans, as he has been a major presence on the show since his return in August 2020. The Tribal Chief has been involved in high-profile feuds with the likes of Cody Rhodes, Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan, and Edge, and his absence could leave a noticeable hole in the episode.

As always, it’s best to take these reports with a grain of salt and tune in to SmackDown to see what actually unfolds. The wrestling world is always full of surprises, and anything can happen on any given episode.

What do you think will happen on SmackDown without Roman Reigns? Will the segment between Paul Heyman and Jey Uso be enough to keep fans entertained, or do you think the absence of the Universal Champion will leave a noticeable hole in the episode? Leave a comment below.
