Roman Reigns will be back in action at Crown Jewel.
After getting the better of Jey Uso at SummerSlam, Reigns headed to SmackDown with The Bloodline in shambles. On the show, Jimmy Uso explained why he turned on his brother Jey at the event to help Reigns, although he seemed determined to go it alone.
By the end of the show, a wild brawl had erupted, and Jey had quit WWE altogether.
Following the show, Reigns took a break from WWE, not returning until October 13th. Once back on the blue brand, the Tribal Chief came face to face with LA Knight, whose rise has continued at a remarkable rate.
The confrontation appeared to sow the seeds for a future match, and those predictions have proven correct. It’s been confirmed by the LA Times and later WWE that Knight will challenge Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Title at Crown Jewel on November 4th.

Roman Reigns Still In Control Of His Creative
In recent weeks Vince McMahon has been removed from the WWE creative process, leaving Triple H in full control.
Although Triple H is guiding WWE programming, Roman Reigns — like many top stars before him — has a significant amount of influence over his storylines. Following McMahon’s exit it was reported this hasn’t and won’t change going forward.
Both Reigns and Paul Heyman are heavily involved in creative for The Bloodline with matches and segments usually produced by Michael Hayes.
