Backstage WWE News On Roman Reigns

WWE Considered Keeping Roman Reigns Off RAW, WWE Opening Second Performance Center?

— WWE continues to put a lot of emphasis on scouting, signing and developing talent in the Middle East. The area is such a high priority for the company that there are considerations being given to open a second Performance Center in that location to focus on talent from the Middle East and India, which is another focus country for them.

— There was some internal discussions of keeping Roman Reigns off of this week’s Raw as “punishment” for his “shoot” interview against Brock Lesnar the week before. The idea would have been that WWE suspended Reigns for a week due to his comments but ultimately the decision was made that it was better for him to be there to respond to Paul Heyman’s promo.
