Roman Reigns was crowned the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion after defeating Brock Lesnar in a title unifcation bout in the main event of WrestleMania 38 Night two. After a brutal back and forth fight, it was ‘The Tribal Chief,’ who stood tall in the marquee clash. The bout lasted for 12 minutes at the show and there was a talk that perhaps the match ended abruptly because Reigns suffered some sort of injury to his arm or shoulder.
Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar panned out as planned
The match length falls in line with many of Lesnar’s matches but given that WWE hyped this one as the Greatest WrestleMania Match of All-Time, it seemed not to live up to the expectations of the hype it got. During his appearance on the Sunday Night’s Main Event podcast, Dave Meltzer confirmed that Reigns was not injured and the match played out just as they laid it out. Meltzer spoke about the rumors that Reigns is injured.
“That’s not even true. That was the match. That was the match that was laid out.” Meltzer added, “That’s the nature of the way they put Lesnar matches together which is boom boom boom, big move big move…it was not a bad match by any means. It was a Brock Lesnar match, no different from many others.”
The heated feud between Lesnar and Reigns has concluded and Reigns will move on to a different opponent. It turns out that could be Shinsuke Nakamura, who interrupted ‘The Head of The Table’ on the last week’s edition of Friday Night SmackDown. WWE has not announced who Reigns will face next at WrestleMania Backlash. At the house shows, Reigns is advertised for matches against Drew McIntyre. There’s no word on what is next for Lesnar or when he will be back on WWE TV.
