Every young wrestler aspires to be the next Roman Reigns. Anyone would be inspired by the Tribal Chief’s phenomenal World Title run over the last two and a half years. Reigns’ work as the leader of the Bloodline is one of the best of his career.
2022 happened to be a great year for Reigns, as he achieved the biggest win of his career, which was unifying the World Championships. Roman Reigns is currently on a contract that allows him to appear at only major Premium Live events. This likely indicates that Reigns is trying to slow down and that his days as a full-time performer are officially over.
Roman Reigns has often spoke about exploring other ventures beyond WWE. While Reigns played a small part in the 2019 action movie Hobbs and Shaw, it is unknown whether acting is something he wants to do other than wrestle. The Tribal Chief is expected to follow in the footsteps of his cousin, The Rock.
Eric Bischoff discussed the possibility of Reigns becoming a Hollywood star on a recent episode of the Strictly Business podcast. He said that Reigns is young, healthy, and financially stable, so there is no problem if he steps into the next phase of his life.
“if I’m Roman and I know my bank account’s good, my investment portfolio’s good, and I’m still young enough and healthy enough, especially given his circumstances, I wanna get out while the getting’s good, brother, and step into the next phase of my life.”
Roman Reigns could be stripped of the WWE championship
Since the past month, The Bloodline has been invading the Red Brand. Usos, Solo Sikoa, and Sami Zayn have been taking down several superstars backstage. According to Reigns, the attacks will continue until everyone in the locker room acknowledges The Bloodline.
This week on RAW, the Bloodline members attacked the production crew and destroyed the ringside area. They were confronted by Kevin Owens, who fought with the four of them. Owens got help from the rest of the wrestlers on the RAW Brand. This was a terrific and energetic start to this year’s first edition of RAW. WWE Official Adam Pearce then put the four members of the Bloodline in separate matches.
The Bloodline’s invasion could prove costly for Roman Reigns. According to Xero News, Reigns could be stripped of the WWE Championship due to The Bloodline’s invasions.
“I’m told The Bloodline’s invasions of Raw may end up eventually leading to Roman Reigns being stripped of the WWE Championship. Reigns is still set to defend both titles against The Rock in the Main Event of Night 2”
Reigns most recently defended his undisputed championship against Logan Paul at the Crown Jewel. The Tribal Chief is also expected to walk out of WrestleMania 39 as the undisputed Universal Champion.
