It would appear that plans for Roman Reigns and this Sunday’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view are currently up in the air, after major last-minute changes were made to the script for Smackdown Live on Tuesday evening.
Reigns was originally supposed to face Daniel Bryan, who was to be revealed as the mastermind behind the recent attacks and near-misses on the Big Dog in recent weeks. While that still may be the case, there wasn’t enough progress made in the story on Raw or Smackdown this week to really merit a match for SummerSlam, unless something big changes in the next few days, and certainly nothing has been announced at this point.
It’s hard to believe that Reigns, one of the company’s top stars and one of the cover stars of the upcoming WWE 2K20 video game, would be completely off the company’s second biggest pay-per-view event of the year, however.
One idea would be to have him face Buddy Murphy on the show, as Reigns cleared the locker room on Smackdown Live and attacked the former Cruiserweight Champion, attempting to get information on who was being the recent attack.
According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account – and take this with a grain of salt, but they have a fairly solid track record with these kinds of things – the idea of adding Reigns/Murphy to the card was discussed backstage on Tuesday. Nothing is final as of now.
Man no doubt @WWE_Murphy is a stud! Great in the ring and I can’t wait to introduce him to the Big Fight. But no matter how big a mans arms are 😂. If I hit u first, you’re guna take a seat. Big Arms Buddy was no exception. Ah Yessir✌🏽 https://t.co/mMqnB9y1Se

I came to #SDLive from #205Live because I know I belonged…in a ring. I don’t care about who attacked @WWERomanReigns but if he wants to put his hands on me again, I have no problem stepping in the ring with him. Anywhere. And smile right in his face… AGAIN! #BestKeptSecret
