Roman Reigns is presently the Undisputed WWE Common Champion, having unified the WWE and Common titles at WrestleMania 38 again in April. And whereas “The Tribal Chief’s” reign has reached historic heights since first becoming Universal Champion back in 2020, there have been loads of criticisms about his reign ever since WrestleMania. His new WWE contract offers him a a lot lighter schedule, however it has left Monday Night time Uncooked with no world champion for the previous 5 months and the corporate is gearing up for its fourth pay-per-view of the 12 months to not have no less than one world title match on the cardboard.
The Wrestling Observer‘s Dave Meltzer reported final week that WWE is seeking to push Reigns as “the legend of this era,” which is why they booked him to beat Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle despite the UK crowd being entirely behind “The Scottish Warrior.” WrestlingNews.co then reported there were no plans to have Reigns lose for the remainder of the 12 months and that the plan was at all times for him to face The Rock at WrestleMania as Champion.
There are, nonetheless, some points with that plan. WrestleVotes tweeted on Tuesday that the state of affairs has grown “complicated” as WWE officers don’t need Reigns to lose at any level between now and WrestleMania, however nonetheless need separate world champions on each manufacturers. There have additionally been latest experiences of the USA Community wanting a world champion again on the Pink Model as nicely. It is also nonetheless up within the air whether or not or not Dwayne Johnson will be capable to compete at WrestleMania.
The state of affairs w/ the world titles & Roman Reigns is “complicated” in accordance with a supply. They want to go into “Mania season” & WrestleMania itself with 2 champions, however additionally they don’t need Reigns dropping AT ALL prior. I’m instructed HHH & co are open to all issues creatively right here.

Triple H talked about the possibility of Rock vs. Reigns happening at WrestleMania during a recent interview with Ariel Helwani — “I do know this, as a result of I’ve had this dialog with him. At no time when Rock is making a film in Hollywood, does he stand ready, pull off his elbow pads, and goosebumps fill his total physique due to the electrical energy that 100,000 individuals or no matter it’s are giving him in that second, and he passionately feels that like nobody else. There may be nothing else on the planet that offers you that rush that WWE offers you if you’re standing within the heart of that ring. And I do know he is aware of that. So I do know someplace deep within him is that burning factor to go, ‘Oh, I gotta really feel that yet one more time. I’ve received to get in there yet one more time.’
“As a result of that clock is ticking on, ‘Can he?’ As a result of he seems to be like 1,000,000 bucks however consider me, you look pretty much as good as you might be, you hit that canvas, stuff begins falling off that is not speculated to fall off you, you understand? It is a powerful enterprise, the clock is ticking. So if there’s a time, it’s turning into now. And I do know that there is a burning want for him to reap the benefits of that point,” he added. “It is only a matter of, ‘Can he harness all the opposite issues to give attention to that lengthy sufficient for us to get it achieved?’ It is as much as him. The platform is actually there. WrestleMania. L.A. Two nights, we have already received 90,000-plus I consider, bought… the Tribal Chief is is sitting there ready for him, or anyone else that he desires to, proper? It is magic. Magic, magic, magic of the best ranges in within the within the metropolis that he has develop into in some method king of, proper? And to have that have yet one more time, I do know that is received to be burning a gap in him. I do know that is received to be a want. It is simply, what else what different issues does he must put apart, and might he to make this all work? As a result of he is juggling rather a lot. So hopefully the reply is sure, I might like to see nothing extra. However we’ll see. So to cite you once more, ‘I am saying there’s an opportunity.'”
