Roman Reigns is WWE Universal Champion, but he doesn’t wrestle very often. The Head of the Table picks his matches carefully, but his next three opponents are already in the pipeline.
The Tribal Chief will wrestle Finn Balor’s The Demon at Extreme Rules on September 22nd. It appears that WWE might have already spoiled the ending of that contest, because Reigns’ next match is already on the card for Saudi Arabia.
Reigns vs Brock Lesnar will go down at Crown Jewel in October. That match will take place early in the day for fans in the United States, but it will also mark the Beast Incarnate’s in-ring return for WWE after taking over a year off.
Survivor Series started trending after Big E won the WWE Title, because fans can’t wait to see him face Roman Reigns in Brooklyn. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that if Big E keeps the WWE Title then he will be Reigns’ opponent in November.
The Rock is also rumored for a return, but that will only happen at his discretion and whenever he can make it happen. WWE is willing to pretty much let him make that call as they work around his schedule. We’ll have to see what happens in that situation.
Roman Reigns is a busy man, but at least it appears that he knows who he will be facing for the next three months. Plans can always change in WWE, but this seems like a solid bet.
