Roman Reigns will meet Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble for his WWE Universal Championship.
With the Royal Rumble just days away, the WWE Universe will finally have an answer as to who will take on Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. Initial speculation suggests the company is planning a first-ever match for Reigns, with potential opponents being The Rock or Cody Rhodes.・You may face an old rival named McIntyre. Roman Reigns will meet Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble for his WWE Universal Championship. However, the show also requires Sami Zayn to undergo a “final test” to remain part of The Bloodline. There are rumors that WWE may suggest Sami Zayn as Reigns’ WrestleMania opponent.
However, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter says Zayn is unlikely to face Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania because, according to WWE, he’s not “marketable” for casual fans. Drew McIntyre or Seth Rollins is more likely to take that spot.

“Seth Rollins, who teased his match with Reigns here and there, and Drew McIntyre, may be dark horses in the sense that the company can consider them more genuine world champions than Zayn.” The tribal chief has a long history with Scottish warrior Drew McIntyre. The two crossed paths several times, but McIntyre was unable to beat Roman Reigns in a singles match. He became very close with the tribal chief in Crash at the Castle, but interference from Solo Cicore caused him to lose the match.
Seth Rollins has been his WWE mainstay for the last few years, and it’s surprising that the Visionary isn’t the main event at WrestleMania. With WWE rekindling a long-standing rivalry between two brothers who turned enemies, Rollins could finally have his big moment.
“The story is that the match against Austin was just a few weeks ago. Austin’s main idea that year was a match with Lesnar, and the original hopes and ideas were that Austin vs. Lesnar and Reigns vs. The Rock would be the two-night main event. Face Austin is unlikely to materialize. The name of Lesnar’s competitor on Show of Shows is Bobby Lashley. Dave Meltzer has said WWE has no plans for Gunther to face Lesnar, as some reports have rumored. “When the Lesnar vs. Gunther rumors started, we were told at the time that it was definitely not the plan, but we weren’t told what the plan was. and was a closely guarded secret.” The Almighty faced Lesnar twice. With both men victorious over their opponents, the third rubber match is well constructed and could be one that could provide fans with a blockbuster match in Hollywood.
