Roman Reigns is not at the WWE home show tonight in Orlando. This will be the second concert in a row he has missed. It was not explained why he was not at the show.
Similar to how things went last night in Tampa, Drew McIntyre starts the show and is then attacked by The Usos. The Usos announced that Reigns was not in the building.
The segment leads to Sheamus making a save and then making a match later in the show featuring McIntyre and Sheamus challenging Jimmy and Jey Uso for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles.
Jacob Cohen was at the show and noted that due to COVID-19 issues, some talent would not be appearing on the show. Reigns’ absence does not mean he has tested positive. He may be taking extra precautions because he is immunocompromised. It’s unclear if his status will change during WWE Day 1 on Saturday, where he is expected to defend his Universal championship against Brock Lesnar.
Scoop #1: Due to Covid some superstars won’t be on the show but we’ll still have a great card
