Report: Roman Reigns To Be WWE Universal Champion Heading Into WrestleMania 38
Keeping the gold
Roman Reigns looks set to remain The Head Of The Table for the foreseeable future.
Roman has reigned as Universal Champion for 322 days since capturing the title at Payback 2020. He has defeated the likes of Jey Uso, Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan, Cesaro and Edge as champion and his time at the top of Friday Night SmackDown won't be ending anytime soon.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Reigns is currently scheduled to walk into WrestleMania 38 as Universal Champion. If Reigns will be a two-time or three-time Universal Champion by that point remains to be seen, though.
Big E has hinted he could cash in the Money In The Bank briefcase on Reigns, meaning the New Day man would have a short reign with the gold before it is passed back to The Big Dog ahead of The Showcase Of The Immortals.
As previously noted, WWE has big plans for Reigns at WrestleMania 38 and the company is hoping The Tribal Chief will face off against The Rock. If The Brahma Bull can't work a singles match, though, WWE plans to book The Rock and an Uso vs. Reigns and the other Uso as the backup solution.
