WWE ace Roman Reigns to take break and will NOT compete in Hell in a Cell before cutting back schedule like Brock Lesnar

WWE Undisputed Champion Roman Reigns is set for an extended break and won't compete at Hell in a Cell.

That is according to the editor and publisher of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer, who confirmed that Reigns has signed a new contract that allows him to make less appearances.

That means there will be no Hell in a Cell world title match on June 5 at the Allstate Arena in Chicago.

The Head of the Table is still expected to make a few appearances on RAW and SmackDown but will be missing from several non-televised house shows.

It is also likely that there will be no world title match until Money in the Bank on July 2 at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

Meltzer told Wrestling Observer Radio: “He’s off the Chicago show, which is the next pay-per-view on June 5th. He will be doing pay-per-views this summer.

“Even though he was removed from all the advertising after June 24th…he will do TVs to build up those [stadium pay-per-views], so it’s not like he’s not gonna be on TV, but he’s not gonna be doing a lot of dates.

“I think he’s gonna be on more shows than [Brock] Lesnar, but not appreciably more.

“The next championship match will be July the 2nd [at Money in the Bank], so they have all these house shows with no champion.”

Reigns recently signed a long-term deal with WWE, which is similar to that of former UFC star Brock Lesnar.
