One of WWE’s biggest stars is awaiting a mysterious three-month absence later this year – and that could mean he won’t be able to attend the massive UK Stadium show.
The current undisputed WWE Champion Roman Reigns was expected to appear regularly on WWE television for the foreseeable future.
However, the 36-year-old Florida resident who appeared in the 2019 movie The Fast and the Furious: Hobbs and Shaw has apparently been pulled from all shows from June to September 5.
This could mean he will miss WWE’s Clash At The Castle concert at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on September 3.

Given the star power Roman Reigns wields for the company, his cancellation shocked the wrestling world.

Looks like Reigns will miss the WWE UK big show next September
Set to be the first major stadium event to take place in the UK in nearly 30 years, the wrestling giant sold London’s Wembley Stadium at SummerSlam in 1992.
The great party will take place on Saturday 3 September at Cardiff Principality Stadium, with exceptional interest indeed.
Even with some precious details about the hit itself, fans saw interest in the mega-records.
Reigns, nicknamed Chief of the Tribe, will become a major selling point for WWE in the UK
WWE has confirmed that more than 59,000 people pre-registered for event tickets within the first 24 hours.
The reaction to the announcement that WWE will be hosting a stadium show on these beaches after a three-decade hiatus suggests that fans at Principality Stadium are all but certain – but the lack of Roman Reigns could make it difficult.
