Roman Reigns opens up about his new WWE contract

After battling part-timers throughout his career, Roman Reigns has now moved to a part-time WWE schedule himself. The WWE Universal Champion has been infrequent with his appearances in the last few months despite holding the company’s top title.

The Head of the Table opened up about his new WWE schedule during an interview with Sports Illustrated Media podcast (H/t Reigns first mentioned that he has been working the full time WWE schedule for 10 years. The change was integral for him to get more time with his family:

“For me, it was really just trying to balance everything, and someone who has five children, we’re in a very critical portion of their lives where they’re so young. This is where we build these relationships and these bonds, and they get to know who their dad is.”

Roman Reigns then explained he is not going to be on every single PPV and it can be called a part time schedule. He will however, continue being an annual character on WWE TV:

‘So the main thing is, no, we’re not going to be on every single pay-per-view. But anything that I am on, which will be of course all the major ones, and then a couple of the other ones that fall in between, the big four and the Saudis, I’ll always support those with TVs to build the story and the rivalry going forward. Compared to what I did, I guess technically you could say compared to a full-time on everything, you only get a day and a half a week, yeah, I guess it’s part-time compared to what I’ve usually run. But I mean, I’m an annual character on the WWE television.’
