WWE confirmed the huge six-man tag team match, which will have both WWE Champion Big E and Universal Champion Roman Reigns. This could be one of the biggest shows for WWE Raw in recent times.

Roman Reigns could be the reason for WWE Raw increased ratings

Following WWE Raw: September 20th, 2021, if the ratings for the red brand soar, Roman Reigns could take credit for the same.

In the end, Roman Reigns is the biggest full time star WWE has. Since his heel turn, he’s been unstoppable. In fact, he went up against WWE Megastar John Cena and retained the Universal Championship title.

Currently, he’s in a feud with Finn Balor and Brock Lesnar has already placed a target on his back. While The Tribal Chief can’t catch a breath, he’s enjoying being at the very top of the roster.

So, with the biggest Superstar coming to Raw, and WWE announcing it beforehand, there’s bound to be a spike in ratings. But, why is the company suddenly making changes to WWE Raw?

This left WWE with a handful of options. One of them is brand crossovers. If it works, the wildcard rule could return. Not only that, a brand split could be in the cards as well.
