We have confirmed that Reigns is no longer scheduled on that show and that the plan right now is for the first defense of the Universal title on PPV, which at least as of this week is scheduled to be on the 7/2 Money in the Bank show at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.– Dave Meltzer
Meltzer also added that the current idea for Cardiff Stadium show later this years is for the show to include Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre.
The working idea is Reigns vs. McIntyre on 9/3 in Cardiff.– Dave Meltzer
Roman of course is a huge star who isnt getting any younger, now at 37, it shouldn’t be too big of a surprise that he is starting to slightly slow down his schedule as he approaches 40. However, it is said that Roman doesn’t actually intend on leaving for Hollywood any time soon.
We were told he’s not planning on leaving any time soon. The obvious attempt to move into acting, like Steve Austin, Dwayne Johnson, Cena and Dave Bautista all did, is something he’s talked about as well.– Dave Meltzer
