Following his shocking return tto the ring at the end of SummerSlam, it has been revealed that WWE have some interesting plans for the former Universal Champion, The Big Dog, Roman Reigns.
For those who missed the pay per view, Reigns returned at the end of the match between the Braun Strowman and the Fiend for the Universal Championship. Reigns gave a massive beat down to the two competitors including multiple spears and chair shots. He definitely showed more heel tendencies leading to speculation that he is no longer a babyface and we will see a darker side to him.
Check out the video below if you missed it:
We only seen Reigns return for less than five minutes, so its difficult to tell for sure if WWE views him as a babyface or heel. But it has been reported that the company’s boss Vince McMahon wants to give Roman an ‘edge’ following his shock return to the ring.
It is being reported by WrestlingNews.co that WWE are going to be booking Roman with an edge to his character. This makes sense considering the beatdown he gave Strowman and Wyatt while wearing a shirt that said, “Wreck Everyone & Leave”. The report also interestingly says that his character change was supposed to happen before WrestleMania but had to be put on hold due to him taking a break amid the Coronavirus outbreak. Here is what the report said:
“WrestlingNews.co was told that Vince McMahon wants Reigns to have an “edge” to him and what they are doing now with him is what was originally planned for WrestleMania 36 and beyond but those plans were put on hold when Reigns went home because of COVID-19 concerns..”
If they give him an appropriate amount of time to establish his new persona instead of rushing it we could see a massive difference in the top star.
