The Tribal Chief is coming back! Roman Reigns, the undisputed Universal Champion, will make his return to WWE TV next week on Friday Night SmackDown on May 12, 2023. This was officially announced by WWE on their social media platforms.

But now, the Tribal Chief is ready to resume his dominant reign and face his next challenger. Who will it be? That is the question that everyone is asking. WWE has not revealed Reigns’ opponent for the upcoming Night of Champions Premium Live Event on May 27, 2023. Reigns is also advertised for the Money in the Bank UK show.
Some fans are speculating that it could be Bobby Lashley or AJ Styles, who was recently drafted to SmackDown and has not feuded with Roman during his current title reign. Or maybe it could be someone else entirely, a surprise contender who will shock the WWE Universe.
Whoever it is, they will have to face the wrath of Roman Reigns, who has proven himself to be one of the most dominant champions in WWE history. Reigns has defeated every challenger that has come his way, including legends like John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and Edge. He has also aligned himself with Paul Heyman, who has been his advocate and strategist.
Will anyone be able to dethrone Roman Reigns? Or will he continue to rule over WWE as the Head of the Table? Find out next week on Friday Night SmackDown when Roman Reigns makes his long-awaited return!”
