Roman Reigns: Upcoming big title challengers rumored

Last updated

Roman Reigns is set for a pretty big 2023, and according to a recent rumor we know who he may be facing following the Royal Rumble.

According to a new rumor/report from Xero News, WWE are looking to bring over more talent to SmackDown to challenge the Tribal Chief.

“There has also been some talk of switching Bobby Lashley & Drew Mcintyre from Raw & SmackDown in the upcoming draft post WM” the site claimed on Twitter.

“They are looking to put more talent on SD, who have not faced Roman yet, as they look to build another big year for The Tribal Chief” Xero added.

Roman Reigns Rumors 2023

It’s worth noting that this rumor from Xero News is just that, a rumor, as we are unable to verify whether or not the report is legitimate at this time.

Roman will likely be facing The Rock at WrestleMania, so having some big names for him to face across the year will be imperative for The Tribal Chief beyond ‘Mania.

We probably aren’t going to know who Roman will actually be facing until after the Draft, but having Lashley as an opponent between April and SummerSlam later in the year makes sense.
