Sean Ross Sapp is reporting that Reigns is factored into WWE creative plans for the foreseeable future, so if he is leaving, it won’t be anytime soon.
[Roman is] heavily figured into creative plans for the company for the foreseeable future and he’s not expected to leave “any time soon.”
However, the report does explain that people within WWE expect him to eventually transition into acting, and have thought that way “for a long time”.
In spite of that, people that Fightful spoke to within WWE say that they have not been told that Roman is going to keen an extended period of time away from TV to work on other projects.
Regarding his long-term future, Fightful notes that Reigns is likely to be “incentivized” heavily to keep WWE as his number one priority.
The report notes that this is different to John Cena and The Rock, with WWE having now accepted that they’ve lost both of them to Hollywood.
Fightful explains that Roman was likely referencing how he’s going to be scheduling back on his non-TV wrestling appearances soon, which won’t affect any of his TV plans.
