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. He defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 and became the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion as well.
On the latest Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reveald that Vince McMahon is saving a Reigns vs Drew McIntyre title match as they want it to happen at a stadium show, and it won’t happen at WrestleMania Backlash in favor of the six man tag just announced.
That’s really interesting. That really weakens the card, because I thought the unification was the strongest thing they had on the card. Really, now, that would put Charlotte and Ronda… Roman and Drew I guess would then be to set up for the stadium pay-per-views, then.
Which made sense to me. Maybe the Cardiff or maybe Vegas or whatever. So, they basically, are on this pay-per-view, basically throwing away this pay-per-view. That’s what it is to me…
If you do a single champion, then you’re doing the pay-per-view without a title match, you’re basically just saying, ‘We don’t see this pay-per-view as a big deal at all.’”
