WWE news: Roman Reigns in 'no rush' to return - WWE have no idea when he will be back

Reigns is in no rush to return to WWE

Roman Reigns has been absent from WWE since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The Big Dog is refusing to put himself and his family - which includes newborn twins - at risk. 

Plenty of speculation has suggested WWE are upset with his decision but that, thankfully, doesn't seem to be the case. 

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful has given another update on Reigns' status and we shouldn't expect to see him back anytime soon. 

A source 'high up in WWE' told the website that the company's biggest star 'does not seem in any rush to return, and nobody faults him for it.'

The person also said there is no indication of when a return could happen, saying he 'could be back in two weeks, two months, or be out indefinitely'.

Reigns is also not part of any creative plans at this point, so there really is no reason for him to return. 

Another person in WWE has claimed that The Big Dog is making over $1000 on Cameo every day, so even if the company stopped paying him, 'it wouldn't matter.'

Reigns remains absent from WWE

Fightful report that they haven't been given any indication that Reigns is under pressure to return, but they have revealed more about him being controversially removed from video packages. 

'Several high up in the company were not told as to why he was edited out of the Seth Rollins cash-in video package that aired recently,' the website reads.

"I have no idea," one source told them.

"I can see it as 'yes [you should read more into it]' and I can see it as 'the point was Rollins and Drew are on similar paths.' 

Reigns was edited out of WWE promo packages

"I really don't know," another source said, while a third claimed it was an 'out of sight, out of mind situation'.  

While we don't know for sure when Reigns will return, it's clear his absence is concerning for WWE. 

They have brought back star power in the form of AJ Styles, Edge and Randy Orton in recent weeks, but losing Roman and now Becky Lynch will no doubt harm the product. 

Two of WWE's top stars are now absent

But at a time like this, the safety of performers has to come first, so it's good news that nobody is 'faulting' Reigns for staying away.
