The feud of the year is certainly what WWE has been building in recent months between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, respectively WWE Champion of Monday Night Raw and Universal Champion for well over 500 days, of Friday Night Smackdown.
After his permanent return with WWE to Summerslam last year, The Beast Incarnate immediately targeted the Tribal Chief of the McMahon-owned company, with Roman Reigns ultimately no longer trusting his advisor/manager, attacked.
and sent back Paul Heyman, too close to Brock Lesnar yet, to be trusted. In the penultimate episode of Smackdown, it was understood all too well how the Mad Genius can be the tip of the balance of this dispute and this feud, with the two fighters still giving each other, with Heyman who it makes both of you mood change, without even wanting to.
Update on Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns
Apparently, on Day One, WWE had to put a hand to its future projects in view of the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania, sending Brock Lesnar to win the title that until a few weeks ago was Big E, with the opponent of Bobby Lashley that it is not known if he will arrive at Wrestlemania as a champion, after the match with the All Mighty.
On the other hand, even Roman Reigns may not arrive at Wrestlemania as a Universal champion, given the Rumble contention against Seth Rollins for the title, but both could still come as champions of their respective roster, in that of Mania, where there should be the clash.
final between the two, as the latest rumors have long indicated. According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, however, WWE would never even consider making a match with both titles up for grabs, with the well-known journalist who in fact stated: "I was told no.
They say they did it just to have both of them with one belt at the same time. So it makes sense if you see them together with the belts. But, at the moment, there is no direction or plan for that. Lesnar and Reigns will have a match.
I think we will have a better idea of what will happen after the Royal Rumble. But, if Seth wins and Lesnar goes up against Roman, I assume Roman beats Lesnar to get a belt back. Because Lesnar won't stay long term and Roman will stay every week instead.
As for Rollins, however, I don't know what the long-term plans are for him. They might see him get beaten by Big E or maybe they could get on with Seth. Maybe he could go against Lashley or maybe Kevin Owens. At the moment there are still many ways to go."
