• Roman Reigns Pulled From Next Week’s RAW?
During tonight’s SmackDown, local advertisements in Chicago were promoting The Shield for the dark main event on next week’s episode of RAW from the Allstate Arena.
While The Shield (Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose) was advertised in these local ads, WWE’s website and Allstate Arena’s website is no longer advertising Roman Reigns for next week’s RAW. Allstate Arena’s website is now promoting Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose vs. Drew McIntyre & Baron Corbin and Finn Balor vs. Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley (likely as dark matches).
This has begun speculation that Reigns has been pulled from next week’s RAW. While there’s no information available right now regarding why Reigns might have been pulled from the show, it could be WWE’s way of selling Drew McIntyre’s attack on Reigns.
We’ll keep you updated regarding Reigns’ status for next week’s RAW.
