Roman Reigns pulled out of his scheduled match at WrestleMania back in April when The United States went into lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Given his history with leukemia and the fact that his wife had only recently given birth to twins, Reigns made the decision that was best for his family.
Brock Lesnar left WWE after he lost the WWE Championship to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania and hasn’t been able to make his return since. It was later reported that Lesnar refused to return until audience members were allowed back into the arena.
Both men were rumored to be making their returns at SummerSlam until it was revealed that the show may not be allowed to have the audience in attendance.
According to a report by WrestlingNews.co, the move to the Amway Center could still open the doors to a return for both Reigns and Lesnar since there is much less chance of contracting the virus in the arena and the fans will now be part of the show virtually.
“There is now speculation amongst some people in the company that now that they are running shows at the Amway Center that this will open the door for names like Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns to return.”
“Even with the COVID-19 testing and safety measures, the feeling among some was that there was a higher chance for outbreaks inside of the smaller Performance Center building. Those concerns should be alleviated now that they are going to be running shows at the much larger Amway Center at least until late October.”
There are now rumors that Roman Reigns could interfere in the Universal Championship match between The Fiend and Braun Strowman while The Beast Incarnate will be focused on his rematch with current WWE Champion Drew McIntyre.
