WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns made a huge return to Monday Night RAW this week as he registered wins in two matches on the show. He beat The New Day while teaming with The Usos first and then defeated Big E and Bobby Lashley in a triple threat match. While he had a massive impact on RAW, ‘The Tribal Chief’ is unlikely to appear on RAW each week as of now. Cesaro Drops AEW Dynamite Bombshell
Roman Reigns is unlikely to make RAW appearances
Reigns was brought to the red brand in an attempt to increase the TVratings. It is understood that if WWE saw a major rise in ratings then big stars like him would feature on both RAW and SmackDown regularly, despite the brand split.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported that having Reigns be a part of both shows is not a long-term strategy. However, in case of a rating dip, WWE will certainly look up to the huge stars to increase the numbers.
”Regarding talk that the top stars may appear on both brands like Reigns to try and boost ratings after this week. “Not a long-term strategy. Not even a short-term one.” Of course all can change on a moment’s notice but as of this week this wasn’t something they were planning on regularly doing,” stated Meltzer.
