There are a lot of dream matches we can think of and Triple H vs Roman Reigns is one that’s been done before. In fact, it’s even headlined a WrestleMania and was for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at the time. But Triple H was the champion going into that big match and this time it looks like things have been turned around a little bit.
GulfNews.com confirms that Triple H will take on Roman Reigns at Friday’s WWE live event in Abu Dhabi for the IC Title.
This is Triple H’s first IC Title match since May 15th, 2006 when Chris Masters, Shelton Benjamin, and Triple H defeated then-IC Champion Rob Van Dam and WWE Champion John Cena in a 3-on-2 Texas Tornado Handicap Match where Shelton Benjamin ended up walking away with the IC Title.
“I’m super excited. Going against Triple H, I think that speaks for itself” Roman Reigns said. “I’m always down to defend my yard… It’s not just a regular match, it’s for my Intercontinental title. I’m looking forward to put it up on the line… that’s the type of champion I want to be.”
Triple H also commented on the match by saying, “I bring a different intensity that my era brought to the ring. This is kind of a rematch from WrestleMania 32… and Roman is probably one of the most intense competitors in the WWE right now so I look forward to stepping in the ring with him. He calls himself the ‘Big Dog’, I call myself ‘The Game’… So, we’ll see.”
This will be a very interesting house show in Abu Dhabi for sure and could be an extremely good way to get Roman Reigns over like nobody’s business if he’s able to topple The Game with one of his dangerous spears. It’s just too bad this house show won’t be on the WWE Network.
