WWE Says Roman Reigns Will Not Appear At Weekend House Show In Fayetteville

As the old adage goes, "the card is subject to change," and such is the case with Saturday's WWE live event in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

WWE public relations reached out to Wrestling Inc. to say that Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was advertised on "incorrect promotional material" and will not be appearing at this Saturday's event. According to the announcement, refunds will be available at the point of purchase until 7:30 PM ET on the day of the event. 

Here is the statement from WWE PR in full:

"Incorrect promotional material was released that advertised Roman Reigns in Fayetteville this Saturday, May 20. Roman Reigns will not be in Fayetteville. Refunds will be available at [the] point of purchase until 7:30 ET the day of the event."

Cody Rhodes, Rey Mysterio, "Raw" Women's Champion Bianca Belair, "SmackDown" Women's Champion Rhea Ripley, and others are still advertised for the show.

Reigns hasn't wrestled on a WWE Live Event since before WrestleMania 39. The undisputed champion's most recent contract has him on a seemingly part-time basis for the company, as he hasn't wrestled on WWE programming since WrestleMania either. As it stands, "The Tribal Chief" is not scheduled to wrestle until Night of Champions in Saudi Arabia on May 27. At the show, Reigns will team with his cousin Solo Sikoa to challenge WWE Undisputed Tag Team Champions Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for their titles. 

There has been talk of Reigns joining his cousin Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in Hollywood. Reigns had a cameo in Johnson's film Hobbs & Shaw in 2019.
