Will Roman Reigns Miss WWE Draft and Can He Still Compete at WWE Battleground?

As we reported just moments ago, WWE has suspended Roman Reigns for 30 days for violating the company’s Wellness Policy. While suspended Reigns will not be allowed to work any WWE Live events, Raw, Smackdown, or any other televised programming, and will have to be pulled from all other scheduled appearances.

As of Monday night, Reigns was scheduled to take part in a triple threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the July WWE Battleground pay-per-view, against former SHIELD partners Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins. WWE.com notes that his suspension is “effective immediately”, which would make Reigns’ return date July 21st, just three days before the event.

As of now, Reigns is still eligible to compete at WWE Battleground, should the company decide not to scrap the main event, but they would most likely have to write him off television with some kind of scripted injury. Obviously, he would miss out on all promotion of the match, as well as the go-home episodes of Raw and Smackdown.

The biggest thing is that Reigns will most definitely miss the WWE Draft, which we now know is scheduled for the first live edition of WWE Smackdown on Tuesday, July 19th.
