The rumour mill is swirling regarding potential plans for Roman Reigns at WrestleMania.
The Showcase Of The Immortals is still four months away but Cody Rhodes has always been a frontrunner for the spot as Roman Reigns’ challenger, while storyline dictates that Sami Zayn could be a viable option and WWE continue chasing a dream match for Roman against The Rock.
With so many good options for The Tribal Chief, fans will be interested to see which the company goes with come the first weekend of April. There are no concrete plans for the show as of yet, but, as Dave Meltzer writes in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, discussions have been held regarding having Reigns wrestle on both nights of WrestleMania.
“One of the things talked about internally in WWE is for Reigns to wrestle both nights at Mania, with the working ideas being Cody Rhodes and Dwayne Johnson. Nothing is definite and actually today the best bet is that it won’t take place like that. There is also talk of splitting up the titles so Raw has a world champion after Mania. But anything until probably mid-January when plans have to be finalized because of the Rumble for this year is just talk. The complete overreaction when I noted the Johnson winning the Rumble thing as the internal “pie in the sky” idea which of course in a perfect world that’s what you would want to do, but that hardly means the perfect world scenario is what’s going to happen given Johnson has far bigger things on his plate like the XFL launch, movies, TV, whatever.”-WON.
Reigns hasn’t defended his titles since he defeated Logan Paul in Saudi Arabia on November 5, but as part of The Bloodline, he emerged victorious in the WarGames match at Survivor Series.
