Report: Roman Reigns To Miss WWE Hell In A Cell
No Roman Reigns at WWE Hell In A Cell
While he was previously advertised for the show, Roman Reigns will reportedly not be in action at WWE's upcoming Hell In A Cell pay-per-view on June 5 in Chicago, Illinois.
Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that Reigns will miss the show and he won't be on every WWE pay-per-view moving forward. Meltzer also confirmed that Reigns will be at July's Money In The Bank and SummerSlam events.
"Roman Reigns is not gonna be on every pay-per-view. He's off the Chicago show [Hell In A Cell] which is the next pay-per-view on June 5th. He will be doing pay-per-views this summer...He will do TVs to build up those shows so it's not like he's not gonna be on TV. But he's not gonna be doing a lot of dates and from what I understand, the shows he will be on, eventually, probably sooner than later, they'll start advertising him so the dates will be known," Meltzer said.
It was also noted that Reigns will not defend the WWE Universal Title until Money In The Bank on July 2. Reigns has yet to put the gold on the line since he defeated Brock Lesnar to unify the WWE and Universal championships at WrestleMania 38.
The latest on Reigns' upcoming schedule comes after The Tribal Chief revealed he was 'starting a new phase' in his life at a recent house show in Trenton, New Jersey. It then emerged that Reigns had signed a new deal with WWE that allows him to work far fewer dates and he will be absent from the company's smaller market house shows.
