• Update On Rumors Of Relationship Between Vince McMahon & Roman Reigns Not Being Good
As we noted earlier, there has been speculation that the relationship between WWE and Roman Reigns isn’t good due to Reigns pulling out of the Universal Championship match against Goldberg at WrestleMania 36.
However, nothing can be confirmed yet. One day, WWE erases him from historic moments, and the other day, they show him on TV specials.

The Wrestling Observer noted that the whole situation depends on Vince McMahon’s mood:
“We’re told the reaction by Vince McMahon regarding Reigns and how to handle the situation ‘changes daily based on which way the wind is blowing’, which is why one day they show him beating Triple H on SmackDown, then they edited him off RAW, then they do a Make-A-Wish thing and have no clips of him, then they do an investment conference and Vince McMahon never says his name, and then they have a one hour special on him on FS1.”
