Roman Reigns will be in the house for WWE Raw in Long Island, New York on 29 November, the UBS Arena has announced.

The building tweeted the following on Tuesday evening, confirming the Universal Champion's attendance:-

This is despite Reigns standing as a SmackDown wrestler. While WWE's loose brand split rules allow for wrestlers to cross over between shows, Roman was picked first overall in the 2021 draft on 1 October, retaining his position as the top guy on WWE's most-watched show.

Whether or not the Roman Reigns announcement will help close the gap will become apparent over the coming days.

A Universal Title showdown with Brock Lesnar is currently in the pipeline for Reigns. That match takes place at Crown Jewel 2021 on 21 October, with Lesnar looking to end a run that has now stretched beyond 400 days.
