Roman Reigns confirms his future in live events

During a live event at Cedar Rapids, Iowa over the weekend, the Tribal Chief Roman Reigns defeated Drew McIntyre in the evening's main event and then picked up the microphone to speak to his fans. His words were: “From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate all of you.

I obviously got the internet talked about last week or the week before. I won't keep doing many live events like these on Sundays from now on. So this could be my last."

Backstage News on Roman Reigns

Earlier this month Roman Reigns left a video message for the entire WWE Universe about his possible future with the company after Wrestlemania Backlash: “[…] What's in my brain now, what's in here [points to his heart ] in your Tribal Chief now.

What if this is the last six-man you see at Bloodline? When it comes to TV and being broadcast to the whole world, this is only the latter. You are all out of your mind right now. Don't worry, the tribal chief loves you. I'm not going anywhere unless he does, who knows.

What if it's the last? There is so much at stake here. We have all the titles, we are the best at what we do. What if it's the last time you see us doing what no one can do? This is the Island of Relevancy. It is not a gimmick.

This is as real as possible." Then came an update from reporter Andrew Zarian who said that basically, with Roman's new contract, we would be seeing a lot less of him during live events. Other updates also added that instead, for premium live events and other important situations, the Tribal Chief would continue to work and build feuds, although he will be absent from Hell In A Cell.

For now, however, even if he has decided to slow down a bit, the WWE is already thinking about his next opponents, who seem very clear in the mind of the management. At Survivor Series 2020, Nia Jax and Lana were supposed to do a table spot during the 10-woman Survivor Series Elimination Match.

Unfortunately for the duo, Reigns had plans to do a table spot as well in his match with Drew McIntyre. Here's what Lana had to say about the incident: "We were supposed to do this whole table spot on the show. And then Roman did not want [it], 'cause he had a table spot with [Drew McIntyre].

So there was some major pushback. The Samoans, Nia and Roman, you know, that whole thing. Like, oh my god, I'm caught in the middle of this drama."
