• Roman Reigns Gives An Update On His New “Part-Time” WWE Schedule
During an interview on the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns talked about his new WWE schedule.
The Tribal Chief said he won’t be a part of every WWE premium live event moving forward:
“So the main thing is, no, we’re not gonna be on every single pay-per-view.
But anything that I am on which of course will be all the major ones and then a couple of the other ones, you know, that kind of fall in between the big four and the Saudis, I’ll always support those with TVs to build the story and the rivalry going forward.
So, it’s not like — compared to what I did, I guess, yeah, you could say technically, that’s, compared to a full-time, taking on everything, you only get a day-and-a-half-a-week, yeah, I guess it’s a part-time compared to what I usually run but, I’m an annual character on WWE television.”
As we have noted before, Reigns was able to negotiate a lighter schedule in his new WWE contract, because he has 5 kids at home.
