As WrestleMania draws near, WWE fans are on the edge of their seats, eagerly anticipating the culmination of Roman Reigns’ dominant reign as champion.

In the highly anticipated main event of Night One, the Undisputed WWE Champion will join forces with The Rock to take on the formidable duo of Cody Rhodes and World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins. Night Two promises a showdown between Reigns and Rhodes for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title, setting the stage for a clash of titans that will captivate audiences worldwide.

While not officially confirmed, many expect Rhodes to emerge victorious and dethrone Reigns as champion, a feat he failed to accomplish in last year’s WrestleMania 39 main event.

In the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer shed light on Reigns’ post-match status, dispelling rumors of retirement but hinting at a potential hiatus from WWE. Given his grueling schedule, it’s plausible that Reigns will take some time off following the match. Fans shouldn’t expect to see him on WWE programming until potentially the next Saudi Arabia show, rumored for May 25th, or the SummerSlam event on August 3rd in Cleveland.


“I don’t think anyone believes Reigns would retire with a loss, and WWE has taught fans not to believe it, but given his schedule, it’s probable he’d take some time off. Given his limited schedule, one wouldn’t even expect him on a show again until the as yet unannounced next Saudi Arabia show (last word being on 5/25) and the 8/3 SummerSlam show in Cleveland.”

While the outcome of the match remains uncertain, one thing is clear: WrestleMania 40 is poised to be an unforgettable spectacle, with Reigns’ future in the balance and the WWE Universe brimming with anticipation.

How do you think Roman Reigns’ potential break from WWE following WrestleMania 40 would impact the landscape of the company, considering his dominant reign and status as one of its top stars? Let us know in the comments.
