Backstage Update On Roman Reigns’ Upcoming WWE Schedule

As we've noted, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is not advertised for any WWE TV tapings or live events for the months of July or August, with the exception of the Money in the Bank and SummerSlam Premium Live Events.


In an update, Andrew Zarian of Mat Men Podcast is reporting that Reigns is not expected "to take extended time off" and that he will appear only on Premium Live Events and TV tapings during the summer. Zarian added that the only change in Reigns' schedule will be with smaller market house shows, which is why "The Tribal Chief" showed his gratitude to the fans in Trenton, NJ last weekend.

"I've been here a couple of times in the past 10 years," Reigns said after a live event in Trenton. "I'm starting to work into a new phase in my career, and I honestly don't know if I'll be back here again. If that's the case, I just wanna say thank you for all these years of support."

Zarian also noted that fans shouldn't read too much into the fact that Reigns isn't advertised for any TV tapings during the summer. With Reigns expected to have big matches at three consecutive WWE stadium shows in July, August and September, it is likely that he will be appearing on TV to build up those bouts.
