Last night at a live event in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns confirmed reports about his reduced schedule.
At the show last night, Reigns defeated Drew McIntyre to retain the Universal Title, and then he addressed the fans like he’s been doing at all of the live events in recent weeks.
Reigns said, “I know I had the internet talking last week or the week before that, but I honestly don’t know if I’m going to be doing too many more live events like this, on a Sunday, going forward. So this could be my last one and I want y’all to know that it was very special for me and I had an incredible time.”
Reigns recently signed a new contract that calls for fewer shows as he is entering a “new phase” of his life. Reigns has been open about wanting to spend more time with his family while also wanting to pursue a career in Hollywood.
Reigns will work a select number of pay-per-view events for WWE and he will continue appearing on Smackdown on most weeks. He is currently scheduled to wrestle at the Money In The Bank PPV on July 2, SummerSlam on July 30 and Clash at the Castle on Saturday, September 3. He is also advertised for Raw at MSG and SmackDown in Boston.
