Roman Reigns is back in a WWE ring, and he and The Shield provided wrestling fans with a vintage performance at Fastlane. And now, fans in the United Kingdom can look forward to watching The Big Dog in action in two months.
After being ambushed by Drew McIntyre on the Mar. 11 episode of Raw in Pittsburgh, Roman Reigns could have his opponent for WrestleMania 35 scheduled. Since returning to WWE a couple of weeks ago in the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia, Reigns has picked up where he left off, reuniting The Shield and reigniting a feud with Raw’s heel main event trio of McIntyre, Baron Corbin, and Intercontinental Champion Bobby Lashley.
All eyes will be on The Shield this WrestleMania season, and, again, the WWE Universe will be anxiously waiting for news about Reigns’s opponent at the Show of Shows. Given that he’s faced Brock Lesnar, The Undertaker, and Triple H in his last four WrestleManias, a big opponent beckons for the leader of “our yard”.
And after WrestleMania in May from the 11th to the 17th, WWE will have a tour in the United Kingdom so that wrestling fans abroad can have a chance to watch some of their favorite stars in action. The WWE UK Twitter account officially announced that Reigns will be a part of that tour.
From May 11 to 17, WWE will stop in Newcastle, Liverpool, London, Bournemouth, Birmingham, Sheffield, and Cardiff, with the shows in London being special taped editions of Raw and SmackDown Live. WWE always brings it when they tape episodes in the United Kingdom, and it will be exciting to see how storylines play out, especially since Reigns’s Shield brother, Seth Rollins, seems poised to “Slay The Beast” at WrestleMania 35.
It’s awesome to see Reigns back in WWE, and it’s also fantastic to hear confirmation that he’ll be able to compete at the promotion’s Live Events in the UK, which will, again, included episodes of Raw and SmackDown at the O2 Arena in London on May 13 and 14. Reigns has always been a part of the Red Brand, so I’d expect to see him on television on Monday, May 13, even after the “International” Superstar Shakeup in April.
