• USA Network Have Pitched The Idea Of An Interim Title To WWE
In the last couple of months, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns has been on a lighter WWE schedule.
He doesn’t appear on RAW & SmackDown every week and there’s a reason behind it.
The Tribal Chief appeared on The Today Show recently and revealed that he has a lighter schedule now so that he can spend time with his 5 kids (out of which there are 2 sets of twins) at home.
Below is what The Head Of The Table said:
“When you have that many kids, you really have to have a schedule and just try to get everything in line and you’re just kind of treating it like a business because there’s just so many of them and you have to try to delegate and give them all as much attention as possible.
So it’s been great, you know, my schedule shifted around a little bit so I have a lot more time at home now and I can feel that relationship strengthening and those bonds are getting better and better so it’s a very blessed situation.”
According to Fightful Select, USA Network want a regular World Champion on RAW and have suggested the idea of an Interim Title to WWE:
“USA Network wanted a top title featured on WWE RAW more often, as Roman Reigns is rarely seen on their show since winning the WWE Championship at WrestleMania.
One USA Network pitch was to even have an Interim Title, though we’re not sure that was ever seriously considered by WWE.”
WWE is now considering splitting the World Titles, with Drew McIntyre challenging Roman for one Title at Clash At The Castle, and Karrion Kross challenging for the other.
