Roman Reigns set to lose to Seth Rollins at the WWE Royal Rumble

Last updated

WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is reportedly set to lose his Championship at the Royal Rumble event on Saturday January 29th.

Brock Lesnar was reportedly meant to win the Universal Championship at the WWE Day 1 Premium Live Event until Reigns could not make it due to contracting COVID-19.

Lesnar would go on to win the WWE Championship by defeating Big E in a Fatal 5 Way match to main event the show.

With that, Dave Meltzer recently claimed on Wrestling Observer Radio that Reigns is now set to lose against Seth Rollins at the Royal Rumble and then go on to face Brock Lesnar in a feud on Monday Night RAW.

‘The plan for Day 1 was that Seth was gonna be the WWE Champion coming off of the show and Lesnar was gonna be the Universal Champion coming off of the show” Meltzer began.

“So Lesnar is now the WWE Champion. Seth was going to defend the title on one of the WrestleMania nights and then Lesnar and Roman were gonna be for the other title on the other WrestleMania night” Meltzer claimed.

“I was kind of told it’s gonna end up where it’s supposed to be. So I wonder if that means they’re gonna switch belts, like the Universal belt with Seth goes on RAW and the WWE belt that Roman would end up most likely, I’m gonna guess but Brock would have, would be on SmackDown” Meltzer concluded.
