That wasn’t the deal. There are stars in the WWE and then there is Roman Reigns. After a nearly two year reign as WWE Universal Champion, Reigns has reached the elite level of title runs in WWE’s history and there is nothing to suggest he is losing the title anytime soon. That makes Reigns all the more valuable, which is why he is wanted on multiple shows. However, that is not the case despite a previous agreement.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, the idea behind unifying the WWE Title and the Universal Title under Reigns was to have Reigns appear on Monday Night Raw and SmackDown more frequently. However, this has not been the case, as Reigns has rarely appeared on Monday Night Raw since unifying the titles. Reigns is not currently set for any upcoming Monday Night Raw’s and there is nothing to suggest this will change in the future.
According to a source, the creative decision to unity the titles was with the understanding it would allow Roman Reigns to appear on BOTH shows more regularly.
…maybe that wasn’t the best decision.

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that you have to expect from WWE, as they have a tendency to set something up and then either ignore or change the plans. Reigns only appearing on SmackDown leaves Monday Night Raw with little to do or anywhere to go in the main event. Reigns being around more would help, but so would a second World Title, should WWE ever realize the idea.
What do you think of Reigns? How will WWE fix things? Let us know in the comments below.
