WWE Superstar Roman Reigns is certainly one of the top competitors in the company right now and has been on a solid run as the WWE Universal Champion, but he is losing his top spot to two WWE Smackdown women. Roman Reigns successfully defended his WWE Universal Championship against WWE Hall Of Famer Edge and Daniel Bryan in a triple threat match in the main event of Night Two of WrestleMania 37. Roman Reigns might also be losing Paul Heyman eventually.
Roman Reigns also successfully retained his WWE Universal Championship against Cesaro in the main event of WrestleMania Backlash. Roman Reigns was scheduled to defend his WWE Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio at the WWE Hell In A Cell pay-per-view. However, that match was shifted to a previous episode of Friday Night Smackdown.
Roman Reigns would successfully defend his WWE Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio as well and went on to defeat Edge and John Cena in subsequent title matches at WWE Money In The Bank and WWE SummerSlam respectively. He then retained his title against Finn Balor at WWE Extreme Rules as well.
Roman Reigns was unable to compete at WWE Day 1 after testing positive for the virus, which led to Brock Lesnar winning the WWE Championship after defeating Big E and others at the pay-per-view. Despite this, WWE still has huge plans for Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar.
Prio r to his match against Seth Rollins at the Royal Rumble event, Seth Rollins came out in Shield gear, complete with the Shield music and making his way through the crowd. Renee Paquette took to Twitter and reacted to Seth Rollins wearing the Shield gear.
“You guys, I’m dying with Seth showing up in the Shield gear. I love it so much. This is gonna be a hell of a match. These two are going to f***ing tear it up. And, I mean, what a good throwback. Get in Roman’s head, get in his kitchen. I’m a huge fan of this; I’m pumped.”
