WWE News: Roman Reigns stepping away?
Roman Reigns has been a polarizing figure in the WWE for nearly a decade, however, he’s been on the hottest streak of his career. Reigns has held the Universal Championship for over 600 days and is finally getting the recognition the WWE was hoping for. Just days before his main event tag match at Wrestlemania Backlash, Reigns addressed the crowd at a live event in Trenton, New Jersey. Reigns explained that he’s been at the top for a long time, but it might be time to move on in the near future.
“I’ve been here many times for the last 10 years now and I’m starting to work in a new phase of my career,” Reigns said. “I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever be back here ever again,” he continued before thanking the fans. Reign’s comments have dominated the WWE News on social media but only time will tell what it could mean.
