Earlier this year, Roman Reigns signed a new deal with WWE which would see him on a reduced schedule.
This means that he now rarely appears at live events and is no longer featured on every episode of SmackDown or even every Premium Live Event.
Roman Reigns’ upcoming schedule
According to PWInsider, The Head Of The Table will be a bit busier than usual as he is set to make multiple TV appearances to build up to Crown Jewel on November 5th and Survivor Series on November 26th.
The dates Roman Reigns is currently being advertised for can be found below.
- October 28th – Smackdown in St Louis, MO. The report notes this could be a double Smackdown TV taping as there is no Smackdown TV advertised for November 4th due to Crown Jewel taking place the next day.
- October 31st – Raw in Dallas, TX
- November 11th – SmackDown in Indianapolis, IN
- November 18th – SmackDown in Hartford, CT
Interestingly, The Tribal Chief is not being advertised for the Raw and SmackDown shows the week before Survivor Series.
Crown Jewel title defence
At Crown Jewel, Reigns is set to defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Logan Paul.
The bout was announced at a press conference in Las Vegas on September 17th. It came about after comments Logan Paul made during an episode of his ‘Impaulsive’ podcast when Reigns was his guest.
After Roman Reigns had finished his interview, Paul claimed that he could defeat him if he was given the opportunity. In response, Reigns made his feelings known on social media. This led to an appearance on SmackDown where the star made his challenge official.
Paul is taking his first shot at the title seriously and has been spotted training with former WWE Cruiserweight Champions Shane Helms and Drew Gulak.
Whether Reigns is able to overcome the challenge from Paul or not, it seems likely he will be part of this year’s Survivor Series.
The event is set to feature WarGames matches for the first time and with Reigns heading the most dominant faction in WWE, The Bloodline, he could well be part of the brutal double-ring bout.
