Roman Reigns Hints His Time In WWE Could Be Done Sooner Than Later

During Friday’s episode of SmackDown, current WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns said something very interesting. It was a line that didn’t get much acknowledgment on the program but caught a ton of attention on social media and with the WWE Universe. Reigns hinted that he could be leaving WWE soon.

He said during his opening promo of the evening, “I’m your Tribal Chief and I’m the greatest of all time. And when my days are done around here, which could be sooner than later, the whole world will acknowledge me.” It wasn’t clear if this was some sort of storyline hint, a reference to him potentially taking some time away, or a clue that he was thinking about calling it a career in the professional wrestling business in the next little while.

This isn’t the first time Reigns has made comments such as this. Last week during an interview on The Michael Kay Show, he hinted that his full-time wrestling days may be over soon and he is looking at making the jump to becoming a full-time Hollywood actor. Reigns has appeared in a couple of films already and he’s looking to do more of that kind of work. He got the bug when he was part of the Hobbs and Shaw film alongside his cousin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. And, just last week on SmackDown, during a segment with Vince McMahon, Reigns joked that the value of the egg ($100 million) was the same value as what his next contract might look like. It wasn’t clear if that was an inside line written for him or a nod to the fact he may be on a full-time deal that expires soon. There is some early talk his deal might be up in the summer of 2022.

Reigns Going Hollywood

Reigns has talked at great length about wanting to transition into movies and noted that wrestling is a young man’s game and you can’t fall down all of your life. He’s thankful WWE put so many opportunities in front of him but that he needs to use what he’s learned and move on to something else. If he’s planning on doing that right away, time will tell.
