8. Update on Who Might Walk Out of Raw As The Universal Champion
On tonight’s edition of Raw, a Fatal-4 way match between Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens and Big Cass will determine the new Universal Champion. 2 Time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair gave his prediction on who will walk out of Raw as the new Universal Champion:
“I like Seth Rollins. I’m not gonna budge on that…I don’t need to hear the names of the match participants again. I like Seth Rollins.”
Kevin Owens is the current favorite to walk out of Raw as the new Universal Champion. Owens was scheduled to get a main event push on Raw before WrestleMania 33 and with Finn Balor’s injury, that push might come early. It should be noted that the original plan for the coming Raw PPV was for Kevin Owens to challenge Finn Balor for the Universal Championship.
