Roman Reigns returning to WWE Raw next week


For the first time since he was pulled from WWE's TLC pay-per-view due to a viral infection, Roman Reigns will return to television on next week's episode of Raw.

That news was announced towards the end of last night's show before Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose lost their tag titles to Cesaro & Sheamus. What Reigns will be doing next week or if he'll be wrestling at Survivor Series wasn't made clear, with Jason Jordan having been announced as the final member of Raw's men's division team.

Reigns was supposed to return on Raw in Atlanta, Georgia next week and be announced as the fifth member of the team. An angle could be shot to have Reigns replace Jordan, though another possibility for Survivor Series was opened up with The New Day costing Reigns' Shield stablemates their tag title match last night.

Brock Lesnar will also be on Raw next Monday, which will be the Survivor Series go-home show. Raw still needs to confirm the final participant for their women's team, with the storyline being that Alicia Fox wouldn't pick Bayley for it last night.

Their fifth member will join Fox, Nia Jax, Asuka & Sasha Banks in facing Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Naomi, Carmella & Tamina at the PPV.
