Backstage details of Roman Reigns’ long-term WWE calendar [Report]

Roman Reigns recently signed a new contract with WWE that involves drastic changes to his work schedule.

Roman rule will be working on his new WWE contract on a reduced schedule going forward.

There was speculation that Reigns would soon be leaving WWE after a babyface promo in Trenton, New Jersey, where he told the crowd that he was beginning a new phase in his career and that he wasn’t sure if he’d be back would. But as mentioned, The Tribal Chief recently signed a new deal with the company that includes reduced hours (including pay-per-views).

Speaking at the main event on Sunday night (h/t WrestlingNews.co), Dave Meltzer provided more details on Reigns’ WWE contract. Meltzer believes Reigns’ WWE schedule will be “very similar” to Brock Lesnar’s in WWE. Specifically, Meltzer said that it “will be in a sense that he’s going to do big pay-per-views like the stadium shows and he’s going to do the TVs to build the big pay-per-views”.

Last week, Meltzer also noted that Reigns will not be attending the upcoming HIAC pay-per-view on June 6 (at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois). According to Meltzer, his next scheduled title defense is against Drew McIntyre at Money in the Bank 2022 (on July 2). This show will be held at Allegiant Stadium (home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders) in Paradise, Nevada.

WWE apparently plans to push Roman Reigns as the next Brock Lesnar

Meltzer reported in last week’s edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (Subscription required) that WWE appears planning to push the undisputed WWE Universal Champion “into a new Lesnar” with a limited work schedule. Reigns passed 600 days as a Universal Champion last month, and he hasn’t been pinned in over 800 days. Reigns has outlasted several prominent stars during his title reign, including Lesnar, John Cena, Hall of Famers Goldberg and Edge, Big E, Kevin Owens and McIntyre.
