Roman Reigns Says He'll Be Kicking Off WWE Raw

Roman Reigns is still coming to Raw.

Yesterday, Roman Reigns sent out a tweet announcing that, despite being a SmackDown superstar, he would be on Monday's episode of Raw. The tweet read, "I’m back on #SDLive, but I still have some business on #Raw. I’ll see y’all Monday. #ProtectTheYard"

WWE was quick to deny Roman's comment, posting the following statement:

WWE officials have learned of Roman Reigns' desire to appear on Monday Night Raw, but as of now, and due to his obligations as a Smackdown Live Superstar, he will not be appearing on Monday Night Raw.

The statement did not deter Reigns, who not only insists that he will be on Raw, but that he will be the first man fans see when they tune in at 8 p.m. ET.

WWE Raw is coming off its lowest non-holiday viewership number in history with the third hour slipping below 2 million viewers.

Fightful will have live coverage of WWE Raw beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
