Will Roman Reigns not Appear at WWE Money in the Bank 2023?
Roman Reigns is not expected to appear at WWE Money in the Bank 2023 event in London, UK, if the latest reports are to be believed.
Roman signed a new contract in May 2022 which had a relaxed schedule and Roman does not need to appear every week and not even on all Premium Live events going forward.
After being away for weeks last summer, Roman returned to a more regular schedule heading into Crown Jewel and has worked every PLE since the Saudi Arabia show. He was on the card at Crown Jewel, Survivor Series, Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber, making it 4 PLE in a row. However, things will once again change after WrestleMania 39.
Xero News listed the upcoming plan for Roman Reigns after WrestleMania 39. As per their report, he is set to appear on Saudi Arabia PLE. While he will appear on weekly shows during this time, he is not expected to work any PLE in between Saudi Arabia and Summerslam 2023. This would mean that Roman Reigns will not appear at Money in the Bank 2023 event.
The same report is now repeated by WrestleTalk who are arguing that WWE are not advertising Roman for Money in the Bank on their page. WWE’s official page for Money in the Bank 2023 only advertises Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Bianca Belair.
Money in the Bank is set to take place on July 1, 2023, at The O2 Arena in London, UK. WWE also released the poster for the event ahead of ticket sales which start later this week. (Check here to buy WWE tickets). The poster also does not include Roman Reigns but additionally has Kevin Owens.
With his relaxed schedule, Roman did not appear at Money in the Bank 2022 event also. He is set to defend Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39. It remains to be seen how will WWE manage without their biggest star if that turns out to be the case indeed.
