• Original Plan For The Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns Match
We are being told that WWE is planning to do a match between “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns and “The Beast Incarnate” Brock Lesnar at their Crown Jewel 2021 pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia in October.
However, since this PPV is two months away, with the rumored date being October 21, WWE might do Roman Reigns vs. Finn Balor for the Universal Championship at the Extreme Rules 2021 PPV on September 26.
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE was originally planning to do this Reigns vs. Lesnar match at WrestleMania 39 in 2023 because Roman Reigns vs. The Rock at WrestleMania 38 is the plan for 2022.
We also reported earlier that a rematch between Bobby Lashley and Goldberg for the WWE Championship is also scheduled to take place at Crown Jewel 2021.
