Recently, Reigns was replaced by Shield-brother Seth Rollins on the official RAW banner. The Kingslayer provided a major health update on The Big Dog during a recent interview with Fox 2 News in Detroit, MI.
“Roman is doing great. He obviously spent the holidays home with his family and he’s doing really good. He’s in a good position. He’s primed to make a comeback, hopefully sometime sooner rather than later.”
“But, at the end of the day, he’s just focusing on getting healthy right now. I will say that he’s doing good, he’s in good spirits.”

WWE Offers Kenny Omega Multi-Million Dollar Contract
According to Dave Meltzer, Kenny Omega has received a “fantastic offer” from WWE. BodySlam has confirmed that Omega is set to leave NJPW although Wrestle Kingdom 13 may not be his final appearance for the promotion.
“There’s a meeting tomorrow with Ring Of Honor, All Elite, and New Japan and we’ll see how that goes. My strong impression is that I think that everyone wants to work together. I don’t know politically how it’s going to work out. I don’t think it’s impossible by any means, but there’s always going to be issues.”
“I think that New Japan doesn’t want to not have Kenny Omega, I don’t think that at all. Kenny Omega is the wildcard. WWE made a fantastic offer to him. Obviously New Japan wants to keep him. All Elite wants him. He’s in an interesting position.”
