A top WWE star has no love for Roman Reigns.
The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion will be back in action at Crown Jewel when he defends the gold against LA Knight. Reigns has stood tall at the top of the WWE mountain since winning the Universal Championship at Payback in 2020.
While Reigns was a regular on television at the time, his schedule has been much friendlier since beating Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38. The star’s part-time status has caused discontent online, with fans becoming increasingly fed up with the World Champion being absent. A feeling not helped by the news that Roman Reigns is likely to miss Survivor Series.
During an appearance on The Bump, LA Knight seemed to channel fans’ anger at Reigns, claiming everyone is sick of his occasional appearances.
“I’m gonna tell you my assessment. My assessment is everybody’s sick of that. Here’s a guy, he’s got about one title defense every three, four months? Four defenses a year, and we’re celebrating the fact that he’s been champion for 1,200 days? You got to be kidding me.
1,200 days, as impressive as that is, can come to a real quick halt when you find yourself on the business end of a BFT, and that’s what I think we’re gonna find at Crown Jewel. But look, you talk about the tyranny of this. This revolution is gonna walk in and release everybody from that tyranny with a new WWE Champion,”
When Did Roman Reigns Last Wrestle?
Roman Reigns has only wrestled on ten occasions in 2023, with just six of those matches coming on television or at Premium Live Events.
The Tribal Chief’s most recent outing came on October 14th when he defended the Undisputed WWE Universal Title against Sami Zayn at a live event in Kansas City. The Champion hasn’t competed in a televised match since getting the better of Jey Uso at SummerSlam back on August 5th.
