Try again later. WWE has a lot of talented wrestlers on their roster but it is clear that Roman Reigns is the top star in the company and has been for a very long time now. Reigns is rapidly closing in on two years as Universal Champion, which will put him on a very short list of all time title runs. WWE has found a new way to extend that time and now you are seeing it again.
According to both Sports Illustrated and F4WOnline.com, Reigns is no longer scheduled to wrestle at Money In The Bank on July 2. While a Reigns match had not been announced, Riddle had said that he was coming after Reigns, starting this week on SmackDown. It is not clear when Reigns will wrestle again. He has not defended his title since WrestleMania 38 on April 3.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that frustrates me about WWE. I understand that Reigns is on a new contract that allows him to do things like this, but that doesn’t mean it is a good idea. Assuming Reigns defends the title at Summerslam on July 30, it will be just shy of four months between title defenses. Why in the world would that be seen as the best possible option?
What do you think of the change? Who should challenge Reigns next? Let us know in the comments below.
