• Brock Lesnar’s Next Possible Opponent At Money In The Bank 2018
After last night’s Backlash 2018 PPV, WWE is pushing for “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns to go after Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship once again.
While the main push is for Reigns to get another shot at Lesnar, WWE is also teasing other names. Below is what WWE posted about this ahead of tonight’s post-Backlash edition of RAW:
Has Roman Reigns earned another opportunity at Universal Champion Brock Lesnar?
“Roman Reigns essentially neutralized his controversial Steel Cage Match loss to Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at the Greatest Royal Rumble event by overcoming the all-out onslaught of Samoa Joe at WWE Backlash.
Will The Big Dog’s victory finally put him in a position to battle The Beast for the Universal Championship? Or will other Superstars such as Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins, Braun Strowman or Bobby Lashley get a title opportunity after impressive performances at WWE Backlash?”
WWE also posted the following poll on their website:
Should Roman Reigns get another Universal Title opportunity after defeating Samoa Joe at WWE Backlash?
Below is the result of this poll as of this writing:
(42%) Yes. The win should put The Big Dog back in the title picture.
(58%) No. He needs to win more high-stakes matches before getting another championship opportunity.
With that being said, WWE might book a #1 contenders match on RAW with the above teased names.
After Reigns main evented last night’s Backlash 2018 PPV (instead of WWE Champion AJ Styles), it’s clear that Vince McMahon hasn’t given up on Reigns (as there was speculation after Reigns took two straight losses to Lesnar) and Reigns could quite possibly still be the man who eventually dethrones Lesnar.
Lesnar’s next Universal Title defense is set to be at the upcoming Money In The Bank 2018 PPV (which takes place on June 17).
