Will Roman Reigns miss another WWE ppv?

As revealed a few months ago by well-known journalist Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, WWE has largely changed the weekly and monthly commitments of its Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, removing his presence from several live events of the company, but also several PPVs and weekly tapings.
The well-known American journalist, in fact, stated a few weeks ago: "WWE has confirmed to Fightful that his live event schedule has been curtailed, but he will still be on TV and he shouldn't be missing too many times. This does not appear to be true.
In fact, we continued with further questions to clarify the matter." In practice, according to the sources with which the Fightful reporter spoke, Roman Reigns should not have been absent for long from the WWE TV screens, but he did not, since the Tribal Chief was not present even at Money in the Bank or at Hell in a Cell, with his absence that will also continue on the company's weekly shows.
Latest update on Roman Reigns
During the night, WWE began releasing all its advertising materials for Extreme Rules, the next PPV on October 8th, with the face of Roman Reigns not appearing in any of the federation's graphics, a sign that most likely, the athlete is not will not be present at this event either.
As happened with Hell in a Cell, whose poster first included the face of the Tribal Chief and then saw him disappear, also for that of Extreme Rules, the faces of the protagonists of the WWE rings are quite different. From Seth Rollins to Bobby Lashley, passing through Drew McIntyre, Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch and Riddle.
There is no trace of Reigns and the Usos, with the Tribal Chief's two cousins who could still participate in the event, being two faces with less prominence than the WWE Universal Champion. The current situation sees The Beast and The Tribal Chief booked to do battle in a Last Man Standing match at SummerSlam.
This is the first time the two titans will face each other under this particular stipulation. As such, we will most likely see an ending with one man put down for good. There, Rollins lost the match via disqualification for being too violent, despite the HIAC stipulation allowing competitors to do as they please.
The company could protect both Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar by repeating this trick. It would surprise fans for sure, and that's not a compliment.
