Report: Update On Plans For The WWE Universal Title

What is going to happen with the WWE Universal Title?

Roman Reigns has been WWE Universal Champion since WrestleMania 38 but the company's top star has yet to defend the title.

That won't change at Hell In A Cell on June 5, with Reigns set to skip the event, but The Tribal Chief will be in action at Money In The Bank, SummerSlam, and Clash At The Castle. 

It was noted recently that Reigns will defend the gold in Cardiff, Wales, against Drew McIntyre and who WWE are planning to have Reigns face at Money In the Bank and SummerSlam has also been revealed.

Dave Meltzer reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that while 'none of this is close to etched in stone', the talk is that Reigns will put the gold on the line against Riddle at Money In The Bank on July 2 before a world title match with Riddle's RK-Bro tag team partner Randy Orton at SummerSlam at the end of July. 

It was also noted that while McIntyre is currently Reigns' scheduled opponent for Clash At The Castle, that match could be scrapped if Tyson Fury is involved at the UK pay-per-view in favour of a McIntyre vs. Fury clash. There is no word on a backup opponent for Reigns at the September 3 show.
