Below are a couple of top AEW & WWE news stories of the day, featuring Saraya and Roman Reigns.

• Former AEW Women’s World Champion Saraya (fka Paige in WWE) recently experienced an unexpected change in her scheduled appearances. Fans were left puzzled when her anticipated match on last week’s AEW Dynamite was abruptly pulled from the lineup.

Initially, Saraya was set to face Mariah May during the May 29th episode of AEW Dynamite. This match had received ample promotion, making its sudden removal a surprise for many. The bout was rescheduled for this week without any immediate explanation from AEW, sparking curiosity and speculation among fans and analysts.

Early reports from Fightful Select suggested that the removal of the match was due to a breakdown in communication within AEW. According to these reports, the match was never intended for the May 29th episode, but somehow it was mistakenly announced and included in promotional materials.

“There was some miscommunication this week that has seemed to have been rectified. I know she voiced her concerns. They explained their side of things. It’s something they are going to monitor. I don’t think the match was supposed to happen this week, despite it getting through to the Control Center show. I think it was supposed to be next week and there was a miscommunication, then heads started to roll.”

However, the Wrestling Observer reports that the real reason the match was pulled wasn’t a miscommunication, but the fact that they only had so much TV time and they decided to put Mercedes Mone on instead, who won the TBS Women’s Championship at Double Or Nothing a few days earlier.

• Roman Reigns has an impressive array of accomplishments and accolades that have cemented his legacy. However, since his loss to Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 40, Reigns has been on an extended break. Recent reports suggest that the timeline for his return might now be coming into focus.

In Reigns’ absence, The Bloodline faction has seen significant changes. Solo Sikoa has taken the reins, with Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa joining the group. This shift in leadership has not sat well with Paul Heyman, who has grown increasingly frustrated with Sikoa’s actions over the past few weeks.

The Wrestling Observer highlighted that both Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns are being embraced as babyfaces by the fans. WWE has indicated that Reigns’ return is imminent, with The Tribal Chief expected to make his comeback as early as July, just in time for SummerSlam 2024 on August 3rd, where he’s rumored to face Solo Sikoa.
