Roman Reigns, the guy with the biggest pecs, has had a fairly tumultuous 2016. He went from main eventing WrestleMania 32, to being suspended, to being shuffled down the card, to being our new unstoppable United States Champion overlord. And now there’s another development that’s sure to get people talking. Like us, right now, on this post you’re reading. The system works!
If you watched WWE television this week, you’re likely aware that the company is in the midst of one of their regular European tours. Reigns was on Raw from Glasgow this week, and he has been defending his U.S. title on all other live events on the tour against Rusev. But he was absent from Thursday’s event in Vienna, and Big Cass faced Rusev instead.
Dave Meltzer is reporting that Reigns has been pulled from the tour due to “family commitments,” and will not be appearing on the remaining shows in France. He was also quick to note that Reigns hasn’t been pulled due to injury, and it’s certainly not another Wellness Policy violation.
We hope all is well with Reigns and his family, and we trust that he will be back on WWE television in no time. Believe that, you sufferin’ succotashes. (Succotii? Whatever.)
