Roman Reigns speculated to clinch the Universal Championship at Summerslam

With his recent win over Bobby Lashley on RAW, the Big Dog earned yet another shot at the elusive title currently held by Brock Lesnar.

The duo are set for a clash at Summerslam with Reigns looking to win the top title of the Red brand for the first time while the Beast Incarnate looks to extend his record breaking reign as the champion.

Amidst Brock Leanar’s involvement in the UFC, the future of the Universal title holds several questions. It is being speculated that Reigns will topple Lesnar at the event and will leave the arena as the Universal Champion.

Despite this, the backstage officials are apparently highly concerned about how the Brooklyn crowd will treat this match considering the highly volatile nature of the live crowd at recent events such as Extreme Rules.

    This is exactly what all the smarks were saying in the lead up to Wrestlemania…

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    WWE are just trolling fans at this point, they know we want Lesnar gone yet instead of getting the likes of Balor, Lashley or joe to do it they still shove Reigns down our throats

  • David Keller

    Kristopher, I think you are on the right track. Have Reigns lose and Strowman cashes-in successfully. After that (not on the Pay Per View itself), have Reigns go heel.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Unless there is a screw job in the Braun Strowman vs Kevin Owens match at it is Kevin Owens cashing in. Most likely not but you never know Kevin Owens was the last good Unversal Champion.

    This “speculation” is a known storyline script fact. They’ve been playing this card since day one.

    I think either way fans will go crazy. People are sick of “no show” Lesnar, and Reigns is not exactly the most popular guy out there. Factor in nobody wants to see Reigns/Lesnar match #5000. The only benefit of Reigns not winning is at least he does not get to add another reign to his tally.

  • Darrin Tyler

    Speculated? Uh no it’s a fact he will win. Brocks contract is up and is 100% out of the company after Summerslam. Although Braun could come out and then either will turn the match into a triple threat or he will come out AFTER Roman wins then Braun will get the belt that way which is a very possible situation they can use

  • Kristopher Robinson

    I honestly would have Reigns lose and then have Strowman cash in. I like that they keep pushing Reigns to win the title, but never does lol. However, I think having reigns win them have Strowman cash in, would make the fans go crazy.

    High probability of Reigns winning and then Strowman cashing in. That is an easy way to stop the crowd from being hostile.
    In fact, it does not matter of Reigns or Lesnar wins, as long as Strowman cashes in and takes the title, you will have the crowd on your side.

    Maybe if they booked differently, they wouldn’t have to worry about a “hostile” crowd…
