Backstage news on original finish for Brock Lesnar-Roman Reigns cage match

Brock Lesnar Greatest Royal Rumble

Brock Lesnar’s win at Greatest Royal Rumble was not clean opposed to his victory at WrestleMania and it made people wonder if the company’s thoughts have changed about him in this time.

However, if some latest reports from Wrestling Observer are to be believed, then it wasn’t the case and the original plans for this cage match were different.

According to Observer, the original plan was for Brock’s feet to touch the floor first, which would have made the Beast the decisive winner in the Universal Championship match.

This also likely means that the company had planned for Brock to win this bout all along and reports of Officials considering a title switch during the event were false.

While the date for the next title defense of the Universal Champion is not known, the educated guess is that he will be defending his title again at Money In The Bank next month

    But… why not? Cheer or boo… still the “yard”? Why can’t he be the one claiming it when no one else will…?

    I think that’s true, but now it shouldn’t be Reigns. He’s had way too many opportunities to get the title and now someone else should get a push for the belt. Reigns now needs to work hard on getting over with the fans, whether as a face or a heel. Once he does that, then he should maybe get another shot at a championship. WWE should definitely NOT put a belt around him until he gets over with the fans.

    I don’t think the majority of the fans are looking for Roman Reigns to become Universal champion over Brock Lesnar because they want a full-time wrestler champion. I feel like the majority of the people would take Brock Lesnar part-time with the championship over Roman Reigns full time. Many fans do not want to see Roman Reigns anymore, or at least for now lmao

    Clearly they have a change of heart about putting the Universal title on Roman Regins. But I believe at Summerslam Brock Lesnar will lose to Braun Strowman for me he is who WWE is building around now.

    However… many fans still believe that the belt needs to be in the hands of an actual “FULL TIME” wrestler.
