On last week’s post-WrestleMania 33 edition of Raw, Paul Heyman & Brock Lesnar challenged Roman Reigns to a WWE Universal Championship match, but Braun Strowman came out.
Strowman said that once he’s finished with Reigns, he’s setting his eyes on Lesnar’s Title. WWE is teasing that an update might be give on the #1 contender for the WWE Universal Title on tonight’s Raw:
Who will challenge The Beast Incarnate?
Having finally conquered Goldberg to claim the Universal Championship, Brock Lesnar is now in search of a new challenger. One potential contender named by Paul Heyman this past Monday night was Roman Reigns, the only Superstar besides The Beast Incarnate to vanquish The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Heyman deemed the Raw after WrestleMania the appropriate battleground for a title bout between Reigns and Lesnar. Instead of The Big Dog, though, it was Braun Strowman who emerged to stare Lesnar straight into the eye, making it clear that once he has settled his own unfinished business with Reigns, The Monster Among Men is coming for The Anomaly’s prize.
Reigns has yet to comment on Heyman’s challenge, so it’s unclear as to when — or if — we’ll see the only two Superstars to defeat The Deadman at The Show of Shows lock horns for the Universal Championship. If not Reigns, who will be next to face The Beast?
