Update On Roman Reigns Surgery

While Roman Reigns was not actually injured by Triple H’s attack on Raw, it seems that he has taken the opportunity to legitimately have surgery done on his nose. According to a statement from WWE, Reigns had surgery to correct a deviated septum, and there is currently no timetable for him to return to in-ring action.

This seems like a curious time to take one-half of the main event of WrestleMania out of action, especially since Triple H almost certainly won’t be wrestling leading up to the show, and the active WWE roster is already fairly thin due to injuries. It does seem to lend credence to rumors that Reigns might be held out of the ring for a couple week in order to avoid negative crowd reactions from some of WWE’s more vocal audiences, as WWE is scheduled to travel through Chicago, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Brooklyn in the weeks before WrestleMania, and many of those crowds have been decidedly negative towards Reigns in the past.
