As he takes on a lighter schedule, it appears Roman Reigns may be missing another of WWE’s Premium Live Events.
After winning the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship at WrestleMania 38, Roman Reigns hasn’t spent much time on WWE programming.
Having held the WWE Universal Championship now for 681 days, Reigns has become an almost untouchable champion. His last title defense was against Riddle on the June 17th edition of Friday Night SmackDown in which he successfully retained the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship. His next defense is two weeks away as he gets ready to face The Beast Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam in a Last Man Standing match.
WWE has recently published on their Twitter page an advertisement for the Extreme Rules Premium Live Event, in which Roman Reigns is not featured. Other big stars are being advertised, even the number one contender for the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship at Clash at the Castle, Drew McIntyre.

Roman Reigns had the WWE Universe shaken up at a non-televised event when he made it seem like he wouldn’t be sticking around the WWE for much longer. It turned out that Reigns wasn’t leaving the company and had signed a new WWE contract that would place him on a reduced schedule. This would mean fewer house show appearances and limited Raw and Smackdown shows.
It was also mentioned by WWE President Nick Khan a couple of months ago that WWE was helping him make the transition over to Hollywood.
Extreme Rules would be the third Premium Live Event that Reigns would miss this year. He has already missed Hell in A Cell and Money in the Bank so far.
