WWE star Roman Reigns signs new contract with secret family clause like Brock Lesnar amid Hollywood speculation

WWE superstar Roman Reigns has ended speculation of a Hollywood exit by signing a new long-term deal similar to Brock Lesnar's.

Rumours of Reigns' imminent departure from Vince McMahon's promotion had been rampant, especially after a cryptic promo in a recent non-televised house show in New Jersey.

The WWE Undisputed Champion grabbed the mic in Trenton and said he may not be back as he is transitioning into a "new phase", which left fans fearing the company's top star is on his way out.

However, the publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer confirmed that The Head of the Table is not leaving.

Instead, The Tribal Chief has signed a new long-term deal with the wrestling giants and will just be working "far less" dates, just like Lesnar and Hulk Hogan from back in the day.

That will allow the six-time world champion to spend more time with his family as he is raising five children.

Meltzer told Wrestling Observer Radio: "This is not it for him but the situation is that he got a new deal and the new deal is for far less dates.

“I don’t know how many house shows he’s gonna be doing but it will be much less than the number that he’s doing now.

"It’s one of the perks of being there for a while and being valuable there is you can kind of call certain shots and he’s got the power to maintain the championship and work fewer dates [like] Brock Lesnar has and Hulk Hogan used to have.

"He’s gonna be in a new phase of his life. He’s got young kids and everything like that, in his mid to late 30s. He probably wants to preserve his body a little bit more.”

Reigns, though, remains keen on transitioning to Hollywood, just like WWE legends Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, John Cena and Dave 'Batista' Bautista did before him.

The 36-year-old has already made the first step by appearing alongside his cousin The Rock on Hobbs & Shaw.

WWE have stated that they will support The Big Dog in this endeavour as they believe such a crossover would benefit both parties.
