One of the most concrete, most compact and most admirable realms that WWE has wanted to air in the last few years, is undoubtedly that of its Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns, who is carrying on his reign as the Universal champion of the blue show since more than a year, with the headline victory coming to Payback last year, where Reigns managed to beat both Braun Storwman and The Fiend, to seize the overall champion belt of the WWE Friday night blue show.
Since then, the reign of Roman Reigns has never wavered, with the proximity of Paul Heyman and his Usos cousins, who have done nothing but increase the prestige and attention that fans, the media and the company itself have given to them Tribal Chief.
The next big fear that will come to try to oust Roman Reigns, however, has a name and a surname and they are those of Brock Lesnar, former WWE champion and former McMahon Universal champion, who returned to the scene in Summerslam, just to challenge the champion, in a match that will now arrive at Crown Jewel, only in a few days.
The latest news on Roman Reigns
Roman Reigns will take on Brock Lesnar at the Crown Jewel show on 21st October 2021. The Universal Championship will be on the line as the two behemoths face each other in Saudi Arabia. The current reported plan indicates that their upcoming clash won’t just be a one-off.
Apparently, according to reports from various sites in the sector, it seems that the kingdom that is currently staging the Tribal Chief of Smackdown, is so important and concrete, that the WWE wants to bring him on stage for few more months.
As reported in the last few hours by the well-known Wrestling News, an important overseas site, in fact: “A source close to the WWE creative process told Wrestling News that Reigns is expected to hold the Universal title for a long time yet and there are no plans for him to lose this year.”
Apparently, the rumors that they want a Lesnar vs Reigns at Wrestlemania next year, once again in a match valid for the Universal title, could be right, with that of Crown Jewel being therefore only the first clash between the two and which should therefore see Reigns retain the title in some way, either with some interference or some disqualification.
We will see what WWE will come up with on October 21st in Riyadh. The storied rivalry between both men has led to multiple clashes between them. However, the dynamics have changed a bit this time as The Beast Incarnate is a babyface while Reigns is the heel.
