• Roman Reigns’ Upcoming PPV Match Could Get Changed If A World Champion Returns To WWE
Universal Champion Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar in the main event of WrestleMania 38 to win the WWE Championship. This made him the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
While Reigns has defended his Titles on several occasions at Live Events, he hasn’t made any defenses on TV & PPVs yet.
As we have noted before, WWE is saving Roman’s title defenses for upcoming stadium shows.
According to the Wrestling Observer, below are the opponents for The Tribal Chief at upcoming premium live events:
Money In The Bank (July 2, Allegiant Stadium) – Riddle
SummerSlam (July 30, Nissan Stadium) – Randy Orton
Clash At The Castle (September 3, Principality Stadium) – Drew McIntyre
Reigns’ currently planned match against McIntyre at Clash At The Castle could get changed if undefeated Boxing World Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury decides to return to WWE to work this event.
In that case, WWE is going to book McIntyre vs. Fury, as that match has been teased for a while now.
In the post-fight press conference after his win over Dillian Whyte last month, Fury talked about returning to WWE in the coming months and finally having a match with former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre, which was originally planned for 2020, but didn’t happen due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Below is what The Gypsy King said:
“Don’t rule me out fighting there. You might see me at SummerSlam. I have to speak to Vince and the boys to maybe make this happen.
I know that Drew McIntyre has been saying a lot of things about me. I’ll have to knock him out. I’d love to be at Cardiff, back at the center stage in the UK, especially for the wrestling.
I enjoyed it last time in Saudi Arabia. It was fantastic. To come here and do it would be phenomenal. We’re definitely going to make a bit of contact to see if we can make that SummerSlam thing a reality.”
McIntyre tweeted the following about Fury’s threat:
“Biggest win of his career and he can’t keep my name out his mouth. You have our number, @Tyson_Fury!”
Fury had his first & only match in WWE (so far) at Crown Jewel 2019 in Saudi Arabia, where he defeated Braun Strowman via count-out.
