As Roman Reigns’ historic WWE Unified Championship dominance continues, some fans wonder who will be the guy to finally beat the Head Of The Table.
There was virtually no chance that Logan Paul would beat Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel, and now that the event is over, fans are left wondering who could challenge The Tribal Chief next. Paul looked fantastic during his main-event bout in Saudi Arabia, and getting Jake Paul involved was fun, but Survivor Series is just a few weeks away. With The Bloodline being advertised for that premium live event, Triple H and Co. will only have a little time to set up a feud for the group.
Once that show comes and goes, though, it’ll likely be time for Reigns to enter into another long-term feud. Whoever that ends up being might not be the guy to end Roman’s championship run, but a recent report indicates that WWE at least has an idea about who could eventually do that. Speaking exclusively to GiveMeSport.com, prominent wrestling insider @WrestleVotes reported the following: “They have an idea of who is going to beat Roman. I don’t know specifically if it’s Cody. I don’t know if it’s The Rock. I don’t know if it’s Bray. But I think there’s a handful of guys that they would say ‘alright, this makes sense for future.’ But I don’t think it’s happening anytime soon, to be honest with you.“
WWE Has Been Trying To Get Roman Reigns To This Place For Years
It’s not surprising that WWE isn’t planning to move the belts off Reigns anytime soon. When he was booking the shows, Vince McMahon was defiantly insistent on making Roman “The Guy.” It took over half a decade for that reality to click, but it finally has, and it’d make no sense for Triple H to pull the plug now. The Bloodline is involved in weekly entertaining segments, creating new stars in Solo Sikoa and Sami Zayn. Jimmy and Jey Uso are also doing the best character work of their careers (and it’s not all that close), making this WWE’s can’t-miss faction for the time being. That won’t be the case forever.
The Bloodline was getting stale before Zayn was included more often and Sikoa interfered in Reigns’ Clash At The Castle fight with Drew McIntyre. Eventually, the 37-year-old will need to lose, and WWE has the opportunity to create another star in the process. A wrestling company can make two draws while moving the belts onto the next guy when someone is built up as high as Reigns has been. Maybe it’ll be Cody Rhodes. The Rock has reportedly been WWE‘s dream opponent for Reigns at WrestleMania 39, while a program with Wyatt could be interesting. He is listed as SmackDown’s top face, after all. Regardless of who ends up pinning Reigns, it’s refreshing to hear that the company has at least some semblance of an idea about who they want it to be. McMahon didn’t have any idea, but apparently, Triple H does.
