There have been reports that Reigns will likely turn babyface once he drops the championships.

It has also come to light that he is likely to walk into WrestleMania 39 as champ.



Roman Reigns is unlikely to drop the titles

It turns out WWE was seemingly discussing the plans from Reigns to drop the titles at the event. However, if reports are to be believed WWE is moving forward with the original idea. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the current plan for Roman Reigns is to face The Rock at WrestleMania 39. Fans have been buzzing about a possible blockbuster clash between The Rock and Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 next year.

WrestlingNews reported:

“One source familiar with the creative process told that Triple H is moving forward with the original plans, and the idea is still for Reigns to walk into WrestleMania 39 as champion.”

Reigns has been unstoppable with his championship reign and he hit the two-year mark. Reigns has been the Universal champion since the Payback event on August 30th 2020. It has been the longest reign in the championship’s history and the sixth-longest world championship reign in WWE history. There’s been talk of Reigns potentially losing one of his titles and possibly being stripped with a tournament.

Reports had indicated that WWE was waiting to have this match in Los Angeles, leading to speculation that Dwayne Johnson will battle Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39 in California’s SoFi Stadium. As per the reports of Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, the current plan is indeed for this bout to headline the April 2023 event:

“It’s the plan. It’s 100% the plan for this year (WrestleMania 39). But the idea is, it’s the plan if he can do it.

“We’re still months away, months and months away. So many opportunities and things like that may come up that are far more important than WrestleMania.”
