Roman Reigns is heading to a WWE live event that’s not taking place in the United States of America.

On the May 19th edition of WWE Smackdown, the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns started the show with a promo joined by cousin Solo Sikoa and the “Wise Man” Paul Heyman. Reigns exchanged words with Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens, who are the WWE Tag Team Champions, because Reigns & Solo will challenge the champions at WWE Night of Champions next Saturday, May 27th.

During that interaction between Reigns and the champions Zayn & Owens, The Usos appeared with a cheap attack on Zayn & Owens. Even though The Usos clearly had the upper hand over Zayn & Owens, Reigns was angry about it because he didn’t instruct The Usos to do that. Reigns later claimed that he had a plan for what he was going to say, but The Usos ruined it.

Later in the show, The Usos lost a tag team match to Rey Mysterio & Santos Escobar of the Latino World Order due to Zayn & Owens interfering in the match. Roman Reigns was shown watching on a TV in his dressing room and he wasn’t happy about it at all.

While Roman Reigns remains on a limited schedule in WWE these days, the company announced that The Tribal Chief is headed to a WWE live event in Mexico City on Saturday, July 22nd.
