As one of the most beloved — or despised — figures in the WWE, Roman Reigns’ every move is watched and analyzed by spectators and fans alike. And in the latest WWE rumors report, there’s a suggestion that the accidental injury of the security guard by Roman Reigns last night may be a preview of what’s to come during Fastlane!

That’s the word according to Daily DDT, whose latest round of WWE rumors explores this very possibility. Last night, Roman Reigns was on the final segment of Raw. He, of course, was set to sign his contract with Braun Strowman for Fastlane, but the two ended up hauling it out all over the place instead. (No love lost between the two of them, clearly.) In the middle of the fracas, Reigns delivered his infamous spear — intended to toss Strowman from the barricade into the ring — and ended up snagging a security guard instead.

This certainly doesn’t bode well for Reigns, and according to the latest WWE rumors from Indian Express, this is a sign of things to come during Fastlane.
As has been previously reported, the WWE Draft is rumored to be coming back this year, and Reigns is rumored to be a part of the draft. Accordingly, the company is looking to trade him from Raw to SmackDown so he can begin a World Championship title run.
According to the outlet, Fastlane will provide the perfect opportunity for Reigns to go on a bit of a losing streak, and thus cast his lot for the blue brand.
“Strowman is on a hot streak having taken out Big Show and Reigns in two weeks and he asked Mick Foley to bind The Big Dog so as to deny him the option of backing out from the contest at Fastlane. With things heating up, they both made their way through the crowd and had Reigns deliver a spear before security stepped in to try and stop the two giants. However, Strowman wasn’t going to let Reigns have the last laugh as he drove the latter so hard into the turnbuckle that it brought the ring down. As Strowman walked off, Reigns signed on the contract to make things absolutely official.”

And while this bit of news of a possible Reigns trade to the blue brand is going to be met with some static, the latest WWE rumors from Give Me Sport suggest that there are a few wrestlers who think that Reigns’ detractors are in the minority.
No less of an authority than Road Dawg — remember the D-Generation X days, wrestling fans? — has said as much.
Now, while there are certainly plenty of members of the Roman Empire — this writer included — to deny that Roman Reigns has detractors is short-sighted.
“He was referring to Reigns’ detractors as the anti-establishment minority, claiming that they don’t want other fans to know that Reigns actually gets cheered when they aren’t there. Maybe on that particular night, it was a slightly different story as the crowd was much smaller, but there’s certainly no way you can call Reigns’ critics a minority as it’s proven on a weekly basis that if anybody is in the minority, it’s his supporters.”
What do you think of the latest round of WWE rumors? Do you think Roman Reigns will lose to Braun Strowman at Fastlane? Do you think he will get traded to the blue brand?
