Vince McMahon reportedly muting about Reigns and Lesnar WWE status


WWE has begun the build towards WrestleMania Backlash but as of this writing, there are no hints about what Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar are doing on the show.

Last Friday, Reigns and The Usos attacked Shinsuke Nakamura so it’s possible that Reigns vs. Nakamura is the next title match program but Nakamura has been positioned as a mid-card guy for years so if that match does happen then a lot of work will need to be done to make Nakamura look credible for Reigns.

As for Brock Lesnar, he is advertised for upcoming pay-per-view events but there was no sign of him at Raw or SmackDown last week.

Last week there was speculation that Reigns was injured during his WrestleMania match with Lesnar but Dave Meltzer reported that the match went as planned and that Reigns is not hurt. If he is hurting, then that is being kept a secret from everyone because key people in the company that would know are not aware that there’s an injury.

Ringside News reported today that “no one knows the truth” in regards to the situation outside of “Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman and Usos” and that the only people that really know are Vince McMahon “and maybe Bruce Prichard and John Laurinaitis.”

In other words, the creative team and the agents have not been told anything. RSN reported that someone on the creative team stated, “we’ve asked, since we’re planning Backlash, and Vince didn’t answer either way.”

Another thing that should be noted is that Reigns did not wrestle at the live events this past weekend. He could have simply been given the weekend off but if he doesn’t wrestle this coming weekend then it could mean that something else is going on and it’s being hidden from everyone. We should know more later in the week
