Roman Reigns withstood yet another assault by Brock Lesnar on SummerSlam, the biggest pay-per-view of the summer, by reiterating that he is the leader of WWE. Although 'The Beast Incarnate' put him to the test and literally demolished the ring with a tractor, the former Shield member took home the victory and sent the audience into raptures.
Roman will now be called upon to take on Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle, the highly anticipated event that will take place in the UK in early September. The Scottish Superstar defeated Sheamus at SmackDown three weeks ago, making him the new number one contender for the Tribal Chief's Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
Although the Scottish Warrior has won several matches in recent months, he has remedied some fairly bloody defeats against Big E and Bobby Lashley in 2021, which have halted his run in WWE for the time being.
Roman Reigns will face Drew McIntyre
In the last few hours, the numbers of online betting agencies have emerged, which have made a graphic of what are the odds of WWE Superstars to win or lose their match in the company's Welsh PPV.
Thanks to the numbers issued by BetOnline, we come to know that the favorites to win are: - Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns -160 vs Drew McIntyre +120 - WWE Smackdown Women's Championship match: Liv Morgan -140 vs Shayna Baszler +250 - Six Women Tag Team Match: Bayley, Dakota Kay & IYO SKY -450 vs Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss & Asuka +275 - Single match: Seth Rollins -160 vs Riddle +120 - WWE Intercontinental Championship match: Gunther -600 vs Sheamus +350.
Apparently, Roman Reigns remains the favorite to the final win, with McIntyre's victory paying very high if the Scotsman went to snatch the titles from his opponent in the evening's main event. Another big favorite to win, is Gunther, who according to the bets is almost certain that he will win, against another athlete who will play at home in the UK, Sheamus, who could, however, make the coup, making also win a lot of money to those who bet on him.
Speaking on Sportskeeda’s “Writing With Russo” show, Vince Russo gave his opinion on Kross and Theory’s chances of replacing Reigns as WWE’s top guy. “If done the right way [Kross could replace Reigns],” Russo said.
“If done the right way, Austin Theory could replace [Reigns]. Everything goes back to reality, and they’re so out of touch with reality… Kross makes his reappearance as a surprise, yet Scarlett comes out to the stage in a cloud of smoke. Well, where’s that coming from? Who’s cuing the smoke?”
