He’s on the no list. WWE is in a weird place at the moment and that is going to be the case for a good while to come. There is very little good news going on at the moment and with WrestleMania already out of the way for the year, it might be a little while before they get to their next big show. During that time, there is someone who might be missing and WWE wants you to forget about him.
One of the biggest stories of the year has been Roman Reigns taking himself out of WrestleMania 36. As a leukemia survivor, Reigns’ immune system is not as strong as others’ meaning that he was at more of a risk to the Coronavirus. Therefore, Reigns has not been seen on WWE television in several weeks and that will be the case going forward. It turns out that WWE may be going a bit further than that.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE talent and announcers are not allowed to mention Reigns on television. There is no word on why Reigns is off limits or if he is in hot water with the company. Reigns was last mentioned on the March 27 edition of SmackDown and has not wrestled a televised match since the February 27 Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia.
Reigns is kind of a big deal. Check out some times where WWE was willing to mention him:
Opinion: This is a situation where a little more information would be helpful. There are only so many things you can pull out of someone not being mentioned, as it could be anything from WWE being mad at Reigns to the company wanting you forget about him so that a big return can have a bigger reaction. Either way, it seems like it could be a lont time before we see Reigns in WWE again.
Why do you think Reigns cannot be mentioned? What will he do when he gets back? Let us know in the comments below.
