– Reason Behind Roman Reigns Winning The Intercontinental Championship 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.
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.
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
With this Title win, Reigns is now a Grand Slam Champion in WWE. Below is what WWE Hall of Famer Booker T tweeted about this:
