WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns has been maintaining a part-time presence in the wrestling world, as evidenced by his one-month absence from WWE television and his non-involvement in the upcoming Backlash premium live pay-per-view event on May 6 San Juan, Puerto Rico.
This has left many fans speculating about the future of Roman's WWE schedule for the remainder of 2023. There is considerable speculation that Reigns may join WWE's Night of Champions event in Saudi Arabia later this month, on May 27.
However, if he does not participate in that event, he will likely appear at Money in the Bank on July 1.
Roman Reigns Confirmed for MITB
WWE's events page now features Reigns on the list of advertised Money in the Bank wrestlers alongside notable names such as Cody Rhodes, Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley, Seth Rollins, and Becky Lynch.
This is significant, as Roman was initially advertised for last year's Money in the Bank event when it was scheduled at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. However, Roman was eventually removed from the card due to a venue change.
This year, it is unlikely that history will repeat itself, as Money in the Bank 2023 is set to take place at The O2 Arena in London. Additionally, the first-ever live episode of SmackDown in the United Kingdom will air the night before, on June 30.
With such a significant weekend planned for WWE, it is expected that Roman Reigns will play a substantial role in the events. Despite Reigns' part-time status, his inclusion in high-profile events like Money in the Bank and Night of Champions suggests that the WWE Universe will continue to enjoy his presence in the ring.
Fans are eager to see how Reigns' schedule evolves throughout the remainder of the year and whether he will maintain his part-time status or return to a more consistent presence within the organization. Expectations continue to build as fans await the Tribal Chief's return to the WWE stage.
