Backstage News On WWE’s Future Plans For Roman Reigns

Posted by Matt Boone August 22, 2014 8 Comments

Regarding rumors that Roman Reigns may challenge Brock Lesnar next for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship after the upcoming WWE Night Of Champions pay-per-view, that appears to not be the case.

WWE officials are reportedly still looking to hold off on Reigns winning the WWE title until next year’s WrestleMania.

Reigns is still viewed within WWE as “the chosen one,” but the idea behind his push right now is for him to slowly rise to the top and having him lose to Lesnar at this point would be counterproductive.

WWE is still looking to have Reigns win the title at WrestleMania 31, giving him his big “WrestleMania moment” and fully capitalizing on his push to the top.

      hmmm reigns beating orton at NOC then he beats hhh at HIAC then he beats rollins at SS he beats ambrose at TLC then whens RR beats lesnar at WM….. seems like a good start to the top by then he should have 3 more moves and better ring skills…., BELIEVE THAT

    • Triple H

      I just hope they give him new ring attire and theme.

    • CM PUNK

      No part timers winning the Rumble? See y’all in a few months!

    • CM PUNK

      Cena knows only 4 moves, & this guy only knows 3 (Apron Boot, Superman Punch & Spear). Great choices on your face of the company guys!

      Now that reigns is being billed as a top guy in the future you want to rip on his move set? Fukin people just a few months ago people wanted this same guy to end takers streak! Jesus fucking christ i swear the only real enemy pro wrestling has is its own fans trying to kill a star before it can even develop i swear if i didnt read it i wouldnt believe it

      • The guy you probably hate

        I totally agree, not only the dumb moves part crap people say, but it’s like when a guy gets to top spot after people cheering so much for him, people turn and have all negative things to say. Seen it with cena, now reigns.
        My only problem with reigns is his mic skills. But he’s getting slowly better and better. Sometimes he is a little to quiet on the mic though.
        But he is an explosive wrestler, that’s for damn sure. I just ignore people’s dumb comments of 5 Moves of doom, If That’s the case. Then every wrestler has -x amounts of doom- haha….. I don’t actually think this way. But people don’t realize each wrestler in a way, has their own x amount of “moves of doom.”
        Lesnar has 1 move repeated times 16 of suplexs, plus 1 f5 times 3. (I get why they had lesnar dominate but that was a boring match!)
        Rock has 5 Moves of doom. Orton would have 4. And so on.
