Roman Reigns no longer scheduled for WWE Money in the Bank
When “The Head of the table” will return to in-ring action is still unknown.
The next match for WWE undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns is no longer scheduled for next month's Money in the Bank.
SI's Justin Barrasso first reported the newsWednesday with Dave Meltzer also confirming it.
Its not known why he’s no longer on the July 2nd pay-per-view but Barrasso noted that "plans changed once Money in the Bank was moved from Allegiant Stadium to the indoor MGM Grand Garden Arena."
In May, it was revealed that Riegns signed a new deal that would reduce his schedule and exclude many live events. Dave Meltzer had reported that despite that new deal, he was scheduled to work this month's Hell in a Cell, July's Money in the Bank, July's SummerSlam and September's Clash at the Castle. He then reported that Reigns was no longer scheduled for HIAC.
Meltzer has also reported in the past that the original plan was for Reigns to wrestle Riddle, Randy Orton and Drew McIntyre at MITB, SummerSlam and Clash, respectively. Barrasso said that expected slate hasn't changed. Reigns hasn't wrestled since a May 22nd win over McIntyre at a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, live event.
