The current WWE Undisputed Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, will have a fairly quiet summer in terms of appearances. As we have already reported from Solowrestling, thanks to his current contract, “The Tribal Chief” would have a shorter schedule, which would allow you to work a smaller number of dates without missing the most important events.
In this sense, the company would continue to shuffle the names of Reigns’ next opponents. In the last weeks it was rumored with Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton and even Riddle as the most likely candidatessomething that has confirmed Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Meltzer points out that, although the plans are not yet closed, Roman Reigns would face Riddle at WWE Money in the Bank (July 2), at Randy Orton at WWE SummerSlam (July 30) already Drew McIntyre at WWE Clash at the Castle (September 3).
All three PLEs will take place in large stadiumswith Money in the Bank taking place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, SummerSlam at Nissan Stadium in Nashville and Clash at the Castle at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
It should be noted that, since unifying the company’s two top championships (Universal and WWE) in the main event of WrestleMania 38, Roman Reigns has yet to have a televised title defense.
At WrestleMania Backlash participated in a team match with The Usos to face the group formed by Drew McIntyre, Randy Orton and Riddle, curiously the 3 possible next rivals of the champion.
On the other hand, Reigns will not be part of the next WWE event, Hell in a Cell, which will feature cody rhodes as the main protagonist. “The American Nightmare” will face for the third time Seth “Freakin” Rollinsthis time inside the unforgiving infernal cell.
Meanwhile, “The Tribal Chief” will be very attentive to what happens in the next episode of Friday Night SmackDown, where Jimmy and Jey Uso will try to follow in Reigns’ footsteps by unifying the tag team championships of both brands. But for this they must first defeat the current Raw champions, RK-Browho will also have the opportunity to end up being the unified champions of the company.
