• Major Spoiler On When The Fiend Is Scheduled To Lose
Universal Champion The Fiend has only wrestled a handful of televised matches so far and he’s undefeated.
However, his unbeaten streak is scheduled to end in a few months.
According to The Dirty Sheets, Vince McMahon is ready to push “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns into the main event scene once again.
Vince thinks that Reigns has been stuck in the mid-card scene for over 6 months (although he has been regularly featured on TV in main feuds and has only lost 3 matches since his return earlier this year) and he needs a major push now.
Reigns’ mega push began with his win at Crown Jewel 2019, followed by his sole survivor victory at Survivor Series 2019.
He’s now scheduled to end his feud with King Corbin by defeating him at TLC 2019.
Current plan is for Reigns to win the 2020 Men’s Royal Rumble match (which is going to be his second Royal Rumble match victory) and he’ll then go on to main event WrestleMania 36, where he’ll challenge “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt for the Universal Championship (which is going to be Wyatt’s 1st WrestleMania main event and Roman’s 5th).
Right now, Vince is planning to book “The Big Dog” to defeat The Fiend and then have a long run with the Universal Championship (it should be noted that Reigns is the “Face of WWE”, but never had a significant World Title reign).
The writers and backstage agents don’t think it will work and fans will go back to booing Reigns once again, but Vince disagrees and isn’t willing to change the current plan.
As of this writing, Reigns is scheduled to go on an unparalleled winning streak and is expected to main event almost all PPVs over the next 12 months.
