In the last few hours there has been a lot of talk about the fact that Roman Reigns will no longer be the protagonist of the segment in which the whole Anoa'i family would have recognized him as their Tribal Chief. Initially, in fact, WWE was advertising this segment, which later disappeared from the Raw 30 commercials.
In the last few hours it has emerged from the pages of Ringside News, whose journalists reported Dave Meltzer's words to the F4WOnline site, that the segment dedicated to the Tribal Chief will not go on stage due to an illness of one of the protagonists of the angle and also because Afa and Sika weren't ready to travel.
In his speech, Meltzer in fact stated: "Regarding the questions about changing the Bloodline segment to crown Roman Reigns with the whole family and now it's Sami Zayn's trial, there were rumors about a possible problem with The Rock, with him or Vince McMahon having changed things by refusing, but they are both fake.
Rock had never been booked for the event. The switch was made because Afa & Sika and Rikishi could not be able to leave for the show. They were the key people but Afa & Sika weren't ready for the trip and Rikishi was sick this week, so the idea was shelved.
So the creative team changed the storyline on Friday to have changes on Raw and what happened wasn't originally in the script."
