Anticipation is building in the wrestling community as "The Tribal Chief" Roman Reigns prepares to step back into the ring. WWE has started promoting Reigns for imminent SmackDown showcases, indicating that his hiatus from the televised scene might soon come to an end.
Reigns, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, has held the title for over three years. His impressive streak has, however, been shadowed by his sporadic appearances on WWE TV, causing unrest among fans. His most recent appearance was at the famed SummerSlam event on August 5th, where he defended his title against his kin, Jey Uso.
Reigns clinched victory following an unexpected intervention by Jimmy Uso, costing Jey both the match and the title. The drama unfolded further on the August 11th SmackDown, marking Reigns' latest TV sighting.
Fastlane Showdown Looms
WWE enthusiasts should mark their calendars for the next significant showdown – Fastlane on October 7th.
While it remains uncertain if Reigns will grace the screens before then, he is scheduled to perform at the SmackDown event in Milwaukee on October 27. This news comes straight from Fiserv Forum’s official portal, which has also teased appearances by John Cena, U.S.
Champion Rey Mysterio, Women’s Champion IYO SKY, LA Knight, The Street Profits, Bobby Lashley, Charlotte Flair, Sheamus, and AJ Styles. Furthermore, fans are speculating on Reigns' potential face-off at WWE Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on November 4th.
Given Reigns' history with AJ Styles from 2016 and the latter's recent entanglements with Solo Sikoa & Jimmy Uso, a Roman Reigns and AJ Styles collision seems likely. With the Tribal Chief's return imminent, all eyes will be on how the narratives intertwine and who will emerge victorious.
Keep this on your radar, wrestling aficionados. The SmackDown landscape is about to get a lot more thrilling with the return of Roman Reigns.
