Bully Ray Weighs In on Roman Reigns’ Announcement Tonight
During the latest edition of Busted Open Radio, Bully Ray did a little bit of fantasy booking for the scheduled return for Roman Reigns tonight on Raw. Bully Ray said they should hold off Reigns’ announcement until Good Morning America tomorrow. He stated the following (via Ringside News):
“We always talk about how WWE tries to get that cross-over audience and when Roman had to take time off because of the leukemia he got all that cross-over mainstream coverage. So what if tonight Roman were to be in the ring and say, ‘I’ve been doing well, I’ve been rehabbing, I was doing a movie. I’m feeling strong and I just wanna let everybody know–‘ and just before he can get his words out Dean Ambrose knocks him out. What if right before the announcement a storyline kicked in? Then tomorrow morning [on GMA] he says, ‘Last night I wanted to make the announcement, but something happened, blah, blah, blah, but I’m here today to tell you that I’m back.’”
Of course, the WWE seems to have pivoted with Dean Ambrose’s character in recent weeks, so this idea of a Roman Reigns beatdown seems less likely in that regard. Also, Dean Ambrose is slated to leave WWE later this April.
