WWE Announces Roman Reigns’ Summer Schedule

Roman Reigns

WWE announced when fans will have a chance to see Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns appear live.

It’s no secret that Roman Reigns makes fewer appearances than many of his fellow WWE Superstars, with Triple H even referencing that fact when announcing the newly-created World Heavyweight Championship. The record-breaking star is in high demand, and while his appearances may be limited, fans will have multiple opportunities to see the Tribal Chief over the summer.

In a social media post, WWE announced ten appearances for Reigns in the summer months, revealing that he is set to appear on six episodes of SmackDown. One such episode will take place overseas in London, England ahead of Money in the Bank, which will also feature an appearance from the champion.

In addition to Money in the Bank, Reigns is also expected to appear at SummerSlam in Detroit, MI. The schedule includes just two untelevised live events, one in Cincinnati, OH and one in Mexico City.

The full list of Reigns’ planned appearances is as follows:

  • June 2nd: SmackDown in Wilkes-Barre, PA
  • June 16th: SmackDown in Lexington, KY
  • June 17th: WWE SupersShow in Cincinnati, OH
  • June 30th: SmackDown in London, England
  • July 1st: Money in the Bank in London, England
  • July 7th: SmackDown in New York City, NY
  • July 21st: SmackDown in Orlando, FL
  • July 22nd: WWE SuperShow in Mexico City, Mexico
  • July 28th: SmackDown in New Orleans, LA
  • August 5th: SummerSlam in Detroit, MI

Jimmy Uso Superkicked Roman Reigns At Night Of Champions

Tension has been building between Reigns and The Bloodline for quite some time, and at Night of Champions on May 27th, things came to a head.

The event saw Reigns team with his cousin Solo Sikoa to take on Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship. After Reigns accidentally took out the match’s referee, The Usos attempted to help their family to victory, but ended up delivering tandem superkicks to their brother Solo Sikoa instead. This allowed Zayn to pin Sikoa, retaining the gold he and Owens won from The Usos at WrestleMania.

Enraged, Reigns took The Usos to task after the match, but received two superkicks from Jimmy for his trouble. Jey was aghast, asking his brother what he’d done, but Jimmy made it clear that Roman had been treating them badly and that they needed to stick together.
