WWE Rumors: Roman Reigns heading to Smackdown Live
We are only a few weeks away from Wrestlemania 33 and a majority of the card has been announced. However, the rumor mills are now circulating around with the potential WWE Draft that should be happening in the future. There have been rumors going around of AJ Styles moving over to RAW and the current story line he happens to be in with Shane McMahon is bringing up that possibility a lot. However, there now happens to be a name going around of someone from the RAW brand heading over to Smackdown Live.[Jon]
According to Cageside Seats, it is now being discussed within WWE officials to have Roman Reigns make the move over to Smackdown. It has been known for quite some time that WWE is pushing to have Roman Reigns become the new face of the company. They are hoping that he is able to replace John Cena who will probably be taken off extensive amount of time this summer to film movies.
It is also being mentioned that they want to move Roman Reigns to Smackdown because he needs new people to feud with. It seems that since the brand split has happened, Roman Reigns has pretty much feuded with the majority of the heels on RAW. I still do not understand why WWE doesn’t turn him heel. WWE has this love with not turning him heel because they basically want him to be John Cena 2.0.
However, sending Roman Reigns to Smackdown means we could see him feud with guys Baron Corbin, Bray Wyatt, or the Miz. While some of them aren’t interesting feuds, it will beat seeing him feud Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho, or Braun Strowman again. If this happens, I would honestly be interested to see if that means that he probably won’t be in the main event of Wrestlemania next year. I mentioned that because rumors are going around that WWE had plans to have him fight Brock Lesnar next year for the WWE Universal title, a RAW title.
