Update on Roman Reigns’ next challenger

Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns finally won the Universal Championship at SummerSlam after an 18 months long buildup and the big question now is what the company is planning for him next.

According to Sports Illustrated, WWE Officials are “looking to build a lengthy title reign” for the new Universal Champion, meaning that he will hold on to the title for some time.

The site also reports that Drew McIntyre is expected to be the next challenger for Reigns once his current programme with the Monster Among Men ends.

This would mean that Roman will defeat Braun Strowman at their upcoming match at the Hell In A Cell PPV and Strowman will fail in his cash in.

It’s worth mentioning that this would be Drew’s first major main roster rivalry since his return, and how Officials handle it will tell us a lot about his future spot in the roster.

    No, if anything, I’ll watch to see him suffer a legit injury because that is seemingly the only way to save us from him, regrettably. It shouldn’t be that way. Reigns should not be on top. Reigns should not be THE guy.

    They maybe also want to move Braun Strowman to Smackdown after WM 35. Because Smackdown needs a big draw when they go to Fox. Plus for Braun Strowman to win the Universal title at Hell In A Cell would really be the wrong place. I think if he doesn’t walk out Unversal champion he will be the odds on favorite to win the Royal Rumble. If he does he may go for the WWE championship.

    Idk right now it really seems like Drew is more capable of a run with the big belt. That or they seem to be building towards that.

  • Charlie Bronson

    You’ll watch just to see him be beat. Which is of course what the goal is anyway.

  • MT McGee

    Not to see Roman, that’s for sure. The Roman Reigns character is complete trash. I don’t think it can be salvaged.

  • Jesus Ortiz

    Yet you watch his product….

  • MT McGee

    No one wants to see Reigns with the title in the first place. Why does WWE think we want a long title reign for him? Oh right, because Vince is a delusional fool that needs to be taken to the glue factory.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I believe they probably still don’t want to put the Unverisal title on Braun Strowman until WM 35. But man I wonder if they are waiting to long to put the title on Strowman.
