Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa are set to take on The Usos in a Bloodline Civil War at Money in the Bank on July 1st. London’s O2 Arena will see a big development in that saga unfold in front of them, but that creative direction is already locked down, as much as anything can be in WWE.
Ringside News exclusively reported that it is not true. A tenured member of the WWE creative team told us that “creative has nothing to do with the Bloodline finish. The Bloodline stories are kept in a very closed circle.”
Ringside News has received further clarification on how Roman Reigns’ creative operates within the company. This included who is involved with the Head of the Table’s creative direction and match finishes.
We were told that Michael Hayes, Paul Heyman, Triple H, and Vince McMahon are involved with the finishes for his matches. This information is very close to the vest, and that explains why practically every one of Roman Reigns’ matches are sell-outs at the monitors backstage.
The WWE creative team is not involved with Roman Reigns’ direction. We were also told that “the storylines themselves are driven by Roman, Paul Heyman, Vince McMahon, Triple H, lead writer Ryan Callahan.”
Money in the Bank will be another chance for the Bloodline’s saga to carry on. There is no debate on how that match will finish with those who make that decision, because the call has already been made, however it turns out. The fact is that WWE is treating Roman Reigns unlike any other Superstars’ creative, and that can lead to a lot of speculation.
We will keep a close eye on the Bloodline’s ongoing creative direction in WWE, as will the rest of the pro wrestling world. Keep checking back with Ringside News for more.
