With Survivor Series taking place in less than two weeks, the latest update on Roman Reigns is that WWE officials are starting to make alternate plans in the event that he’s not medically cleared in time for the PPV.
Reigns has been out of action for several weeks due to the medical outbreak that sidelined Bray Wyatt and Bo Dallas, both of whom have since returned. The plan was for him to return to television next week on RAW, but PWInsider reports that Jason Jordan is being considered as a possible replacement for Roman Reigns. The storyline would be that Kurt Angle will be teaming up with his ‘son’ for the first time ever.
There is said to be concern that Reigns might be rushing back too soon and may not be in proper ring shape to resume working a full-time schedule.
If Reigns is able to return, the plan is for him to team with Captain Angle, Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe and Finn Balor to face SmackDown Commissioner & Team Captain Shane McMahon, Bobby Roode, Randy Orton, Shinsuke Nakamura and either Rusev or AJ Styles.
Expect several more members of Team RAW and Team SmackDown to be revealed following this week’s television tapings from the UK.
