WWE Pulls Roman Reigns off Hell in a Cell 2022 Ad & Update on Reigns’ Summer Schedule

WWE recently removed Roman Reigns from their official poster advertising this year’s Hell in a Cell event on June 5th at the Allstate Arena in Chicago, Illinois. The original advertisement featured Reigns as the centerpiece star while the updated version now featured Cody Rhodes replacing Reigns’ spot.

Dave Meltzer reported in a recent episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio that his sources confirmed that Reigns will not be working at WWE’s upcoming Hell in a Cell event but he is still currently scheduled to work WWE’s other major events this summer.

Meltzer also reported that while Reigns has also been removed from all of WWE’s adverting for their events from June 24th until September 9th, his sources stated that Reigns is currently expected to make a few unadvertised television appearances to help build up his matches at this year’s Money in the Bank and SummerSlam events.

Meltzer stated:

“Basically, Roman Reigns is not gonna be on every pay-per-view. He’s off the Chicago show [Hell in a Cell], [which is] the next pay-per-view on June 5. He will be doing pay-per-views this summer. Even though he was removed from all the advertising after June 24 I believe it is — yeah, June 24 in Austin. He’s been removed from all advertising from house shows, TVs, everything except for the two stadium shows [Money in the Bank and SummerSlam], but he will do TVs to build up those shows. So it’s not like he’s not gonna be on TV, but he’s not gonna be doing a lot of dates. And from what I understand, the shows he will be on, eventually — probably sooner than later — they’ll start advertising him. So the dates will be known, it’s not like it’s gonna be like they’re gonna put him on TV without advertising him. But that’s the basic situation.”
