Latest on plans for Reigns; Location of Christmas RAW Submitted by Aaron Rift on 09/05/2017 at 03:58 PM
- Despite Roman Reigns being considered the “heel” in the program with John Cena, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com has noted that the plan is still for Reigns to emerge as the top babyface of the company when it’s all said and done. According to Meltzer, this has been Vince McMahon’s plan all along and it’s a work in progress that he’s not giving up on. It’s been previously reported that the Cena/Reigns match is being done to elevate Reigns.
- According to PWInsider.com, the belief is that the Christmas edition of RAW will be held at the Allstate Arena in the Chicago area. This will be WWE’s first live event on Christmas Day since 1986. On the day after Christmas, Smackdown Live is also expected to be held at the same venue with the RAW brand heading over to Madison Square Garden in New York for a live event.
