The Tribal Chief was last in action at 2023 SummerSlam on 5 August when he defeated Jey Uso in an Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match.
A week later, Reigns appeared on SmackDown, where he confronted Jimmy and Jey Uso before getting taken out by the latter who then left WWE for a short while.
REIGNS SET TO RETURN IN OCTOBER
Having held the title for over 1000 days, the Bloodline leader has been unstoppable ever since he made his shock return to WWE in August 2020. He is scheduled to wrestle at the upcoming Crown Jewel premium live event in Saudi Arabia in November but his opponent is yet to be revealed.

“How would I book Roman Reigns dropping the title? Bro, I’ll be honest with you. Whoever Roman Reigns is dropping the title to, they are not employed by the WWE at this moment. They are not there. You know, my theory is you keep the belt on the guy that is the most over. Roman Reigns is the most over and there is nobody close. So, therefore, you’re asking me who he should drop the title to? He’s not there,” Russo was quoted on Sportskeeda.
