The winner of the match will receive a Universal Championship match at WrestleMania 36. Current WWE Universal Champion The Fiend will defend his title against Goldberg at the upcoming WWE Super ShowDown event in Saudi Arabia on February 27. Today Roman Reigns spoke at the WrestleMania 37 press conference at SoFi Stadium & Hollywood Park in Inglewood, California.
When asked who he'd prefer to face for the Universal Title at WrestleMania between The Fiend and Goldberg, Reigns admitted he doesn't care, he simply wants to regain the title he never lost, as Reigns was forced to relinquish the title back in 2018 due to his second battle with leukemia. However, when it boils down to it, Reigns said he'd prefer a matchup against The Fiend, who he feels deserves a big match on "The Grandest Stage Of Them All."
"I mean, I just want my title, to be honest," Reigns said. "Nobody took that title from me, I had to relinquish it due to circumstances. So, I'd just prefer my title. Honestly, from a completely honest standpoint, I would much rather face The Fiend. He's busted his ass all year long for it.
"No offense to Goldberg, I think he's a great performer, he's a great Superstar, but I'm into the future right now and helping out the guys who can be in the locker room with me, and there's no doubt that The Fiend has put a lot of work into what he's done, but as we all have. So, like I said, it's my time now. We've had fun with that Fun House, but it's time to bring it home."
