Roman Reigns will appear on the January 7th edition of SmackDown following news that he has been officially medically cleared by WWE.
The Universal Champion recently revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19. As a result of this news, Reigns did not appear at the Day 1 pay-per-view, and did not defend the Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar, which was the original plan for the event. Instead, Lesnar would be inserted into the WWE Championship match, in which the beast was victorious and captured the WWE title for the 6th time in his career.
Roman Reigns had been expected for the upcoming edition of the blue brand. On the January 3rd edition of Raw, Brock Lesnar stated that he would be at SmackDown and would confront Roman. Despite both men being the top champions of the respective Raw and SmackDown brands, it appears that this rivalry is not over.
Following the shock victory at Day 1, Lesnar also reunited with Paul Heyman on the following episode of Raw. The reunion comes shortly after Heyman was fired by Roman Reigns.
