The Royal Rumble is the yearly action-filled celebration kicking off the road to WrestleMania. After all, everything eventually leads to The Show Of Shows. But WrestleMania 34’s main event was said to be set before 33’s show even kicked off. The main event, after all, will most likely be Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title.
Therefore anyone in the way of Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns is thought of as just someone they have to get through on their path to headline the big show in New Orleans. There’s no telling if the WWE Universe will actually be ready for Roman Reigns to become to top babyface in the company but it’s going to happen eventually (most likely).
Since Brock Lesnar’s dance card is full for Survivor Series with Jinder Mahal there is just one more date for The Beast Incarnate before his eventual show-down with Roman Reigns if things go as planned.
Dave Meltzer speculated in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Finn Balor will most likely be getting the call to face Brock Lesnar at the Royal Rumble. Balor’s been chasing the Universal Title since returning from injury when he had to vacate his title.
It might not turn out the way members of Balor Club would prefer, but it looks like Balor is likely going to get another chance to pick up the Universal Title in Philadelphia.
