Roman Reigns’ Next WWE Match Confirmed

Roman Reigns has had a long break since his last WWE match as details of his next match have been revealed.

The last time Roman Reigns wrestled in WWE was at SummerSlam in Detroit on August 5th. That was the night when he barely escaped with the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship over his cousin Jey Uso thanks to the surprising return of Jimmy Uso costing his own twin brother Jey the match.

There were reports that Reigns was injured to some degree in that SummerSlam match, but nothing was ever reported to suggest it was a significant injury. It’s expected that Reigns will be fine to compete in his next match on November 4th.

Reigns did not wrestle at WWE Payback earlier this month and is not expected to wrestle at WWE Fastlane on October 7th either. The final two WWE Premium Live Events are Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on November 4th and Survivor Series in Chicago three weeks later on November 25th.

In this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that the next Reigns match will be on November 4th at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia. That’s not a surprise because Reigns usually wrestles at WWE’s two Saudi Arabia events every year.

Earlier this week, WWE put out a graphic for the 2024 Royal Rumble in Tampa and for some reason, Roman Reigns was not included on it. Perhaps it was an error or an oversight, but for now, there is speculation that the “Tribal Chief” may not appear at the Royal Rumble, which is obviously one of WWE’s biggest events of the year.

Roman Reigns has only wrestled two singles matches since WrestleMania 39

Since WrestleMania 39, which was over five months ago, when he defeated Cody Rhodes in controversial fashion to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Title, Roman Reigns has only wrestled two singles matches.

Those two singles matches are the cheap win over Jey Uso at SummerSlam and a live event match. That live event match was on July 22nd in Mexico City when Reigns beat WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterion in front of a hostile crowd.

Even though Reigns doesn’t wrestle that often these days, he still ranked second in the PWI 500 behind only the WWE World Champion Seth “Freakin” Rollins. Jon Moxley of AEW was in third meaning the former trio known as The Shield in WWE took the top three spots in the rankings.
