In their promotion for next Monday’s Survivor Series ‘go home’ edition of Raw, WWE was a little more clear yesterday about the status of Roman Reigns than they’d been before:
Two HUGE returns are set for an all-new @WWE #RAW NEXT MONDAY at 8/7c on @USA_Network! Believe that. #SDLive @WWERomanReigns @BrockLesnar pic.twitter.com/nVIPmRXIkF— WWE (@WWE) November 8, 2017
According to the latest from PWInsider, there’s still no confirmation on whether Reigns will be fully cleared to compete at Survivor Series on Nov. 19, which is probably why the site reports WWE is going ahead with plans for The Shield vs. The New Day in Houston - they can do it two-on-two or three-on-three depending on his availability. Most fans who saw Xavier Woods, Big E and Kofi Kingston show up on Nov. 6 in Manchester and indirectly cost Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins their Raw tag titles figured this was the direction things were headed in, with The Big Dog being the x-factor.
Or should I say The Mid-Dog, Reggie Reigns. This Twitter exchange between Roman and E from last night and this morning is probably tacit confirmation...
Chill, lady. He’s only about 250. They should call him “The Medium Dog.” Naw...”The Mid Dog.” They should definitely call him “The Mid Dog.” https://t.co/Gapxx1W4jW— ShinigamE (@WWEBigE) November 8, 2017
Actually I’m closer to 275. I’m also 6 inches taller than “Big” but not that “Tall” E. https://t.co/YTa2GpPNt5— Roman Reigns (@WWERomanReigns) November 8, 2017
That’s right. I’m not tall at all. Thankfully, we’re not hooping, fam. https://t.co/B3C5iKYdyj— ShinigamE (@WWEBigE) November 8, 2017
And pretty darn funny, as not-Tall-at-all E is not only feuding as much with a Roman superfan as Reigns himself, but using weed culture terminology to do it:
he won't be mild next week when he kicks ur asses. But have fun thinking he's a mild dog— Sunnyreigns (@sunbabe08) November 8, 2017
I️ said “Mid,” lady. Like Reggie. Reggie Reigns. https://t.co/1Ul9osnS6x— ShinigamE (@WWEBigE) November 8, 2017
Anyone else down for The Hounds vs. The P.O.P.?
I do worry about poor Seth... they’re tearing him apart! Oh well, that’s what happens to traitors.
