– Another Reason Behind Roman Reigns Winning The Intercontinental Title On Raw
As seen on this week’s post-Survivor Series 2017 episode of Raw, “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns defeated The Miz in the main event of the show to win the Intercontinental Championship.
We noted before how the idea behind Reigns winning the Intercontinental Title is that he can stay away from a feud with Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Title as that match is currently planned to be the main event of WrestleMania 34.
Also, when Reigns finally feuds with Lesnar for the Universal Title next year, WWE officials want the storyline to be that Reigns has captured every Title there is to win on Raw, except for the WWE Universal Championship.
Another reason behind The Miz dropping the Intercontinental Title is that he’ll be taking time off from WWE programming to film the next “The Marine” franchise movie of WWE Studios.
Below are Reigns’ accomplishments in WWE so far:
3x WWE World Heavyweight Champion
1x Intercontinental Champion
1x United States Champion
1x WWE Tag Team Champion
Royal Rumble 2015 Winner
Record for most eliminations in a single Royal Rumble match: 12 (Royal Rumble 2014)
3 Consequtive WrestleMania Main Events
Defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania
