After the match, Reigns cut a promo to send the crowd home, where he thanked the crowd for their support, saying he may not return to the town because he is entering a new phase of his career. He said the following:

“I’ve been around for a minute. Me and the Shield, we started in 2012 and we’ve been running this business for almost a decade, so it’s been very fortunate buddy. We were in Uniondale last night and now we made our trail back here, and now we head to Providence for 5 hours. Man, I can’t tell you that this can be a grueling schedule. Everybody back there, they bust their butts to do what we do, but we wouldn’t be able to do it without you (the audience). You give us the energy to allow us to kick out every single night, to put our bodies through this struggle, and do this thing. I think it goes without saying, the WWE Universe is the best fan base in the world of entertainment. I’ve been here many times for the last 10 years now and I’m starting to work in a new phase of my career, and I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever be back here ever again. But hey, if that’s the case, I want to say thank you for all these years, for all the support, and for y’all showering up to see us do what we do. We appreciate y’all and we want y’all to get home safely. Thank you and have a good night.”

While the new phase of Reigns may be uncertain, it is certain that he will team up with Jimmy and Jey Uso against Drew McIntyre & RKBro (Randy Orton & Riddle) on WrestleMania Backlash on 5/8/2022, airing live on Peacock (You can see the match card here).

Reigns last wrestled a match on WrestleMania 38, Night Two, where he defeated Brock Lesnar to become the Undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion. You can see the full results for that show here.
