    The Grapevine (5/11/22): Roman Reigns Update, Tag Title Unification Update, Lacey Evans



    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    Roman Reigns taking time off TV

    Roman Reigns's rumored time off is apparently him being removed from TV programming this summer. The hiatus will start on June 24 all the way to September 5, Labor Day in the US. Reigns is only advertised to appear at Money in the Bank and SummerSlam, the two PPVs happening in this time period, but it is also possible that he could be pulled from these shows as well.

    We say: This will be interesting and may just spell the end for Roman's historic title reign. However, it's also possible that they'll keep the championship on him despite his time off, like what they used to do with Brock Lesnar. We'll see when June rolls around.

    WWE tag title unification match to proceed

    The promoted unification match for WWE's Tag Team Championship will reportedly still push through, without the titles actually being unified. Randy Orton and Riddle, the RAW Tag Team Champions, cut a promo about still wanting to do the match on this week's RAW, but the titles will somehow not be unified in the end.

    We say: Well, it's time to expect another schmozz finish for this one. Why do the matchup if you're not going to pull the trigger?

    Lacey Evans turning heel, moving to RAW

    The current plan is for Lacey Evans to move to RAW as a heel. Despite the series of vignettes painting her new character as a babyface, the company's plans is to use Evans as a heel. (Source: PWInsider)

    We say: Feels like another one of those last-minute decisions because someone's been miscast. If this doesn't work, it feels like they're going to release her and we'll hear all about the story of this character on a podcast.
