• Roman Reigns’ Next Opponent Revealed

In the main event of WrestleMania 39 – Night 2, Roman Reigns defeated Cody Rhodes to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

Roman’s next title defense will be at the Night Of Champions premium live event in Saudi Arabia on May 27th, which is also the day he will complete 1,000 days as champion.

According to Xero News, Reigns’ next feud is scheduled to be against AJ Styles.

Styles, along with The O.C. (Luke Gallows, Karl Anderson & “Michin” Mia Yim), were drafted to SmackDown.

The Phenomenal One also returned from his ankle injury this past Friday. The O.C. made a big statement on the blue brand, when they laid out The Viking Raiders.

Reigns vs. Styles last took place at WWE Live Event in 2022, where Reigns defeated Styles.

The last televised matches between these two men took place in 2016, at the Payback & Extreme Rules PPVs, where Reigns defeated Styles to retain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
