Backstage WWE news items regarding Roman Reigns, Edge, and Matt Riddle

Here are a few WWE news items for September 15th 2023 via the Wrestling Observer Newsletter and Dave Meltzer of…

* Roman Reigns is expected to have his next Undisputed WWE Universal title defense at the 2023 Crown Jewel PLE in Saudi Arabia on November 4th. It’s believed that Reigns will return to television soon to start hyping up the match.

* In regards to Edge being removed internally from WWE’s roster and then added back, it’s believed that the removal was premature since he is still under contract. It still “remains to be seen” as far as what’s next for Edge.

* According to Meltzer, the reason why Matt Riddle was pulled from the September 11th edition of RAW is due to an infection in both ears and bronchitis. Riddle’s absence was not related to his claim that he was “sexually assaulted” by a New York City airport officer. Riddle is reportedly still recovering but is expected back once he is feeling better.
