Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, has been out of action for a number of weeks now. His return date has now been confirmed for the October 13 edition of SmackDown.
Roman Reigns Set To Return In Tulsa, Oklahoma
Roman Reigns was last in action at SummerSlam when he defeated Jey Uso in Tribal Combat to retain his Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, with assistance from a returning Jimmy Uso. In the follow-up from that event, Reigns appeared briefly before being off-screen indefinitely. Special Counsel, Paul Heyman, can be seen often making calls to Reigns on-camera and that is as much as viewers have heard about ‘The Tribal Chief.’
The Bloodline’s storyline has primarily focused on The Usos, as they navigate their solo journeys, as well as Solo Sikoa’s dominance being on display. This has led to many wondering when ‘The Tribal Chief’ might return to the WWE. Although his return will not be in time for the Fastlane PLE, it will be soon after that.
Reigns has now been advertised to appear on the October 13 edition of SmackDown. That show will be the week following the Fastlane event, and it will be live from the Bok Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This will mark the first appearance from ‘The Tribal Chief’ in well over a month, and fans can expect fallout from Fastlane as well as his thoughts on how The Bloodline has been functioning in his absence.
Also advertised for that edition of SmackDown are John Cena, LA Knight, WWE Women’s Champion Iyo Sky, United States Champion Rey Mysterio, and Bobby Lashley.
