A couple of weeks ago, WrestlingNews.co first reported on post-WrestleMania plans for Roman Reigns.
Ads that were sent out listed Reigns as the Universal Champion and defending the title against Roman Reigns. The ads were listed for the 4/16 show in Erie, PA, and the 4/17 show in Syracuse, NY.
As noted earlier, WWE is advertising Reigns vs. McIntyre for shows in London and Paris and we’ve learned that they are scheduled for matches in May, which likely means that they will also wrestle at the Money In The Bank pay-per-view. At this point, there are no plans for McIntyre to win the title.
Last October, WrestlingNews.co reported that there were no plans for Roman Reigns to drop the title anytime soon and we were told that the idea is to push him on the level of names like Hulk Hogan and Bruno Sammartino.
Over the last couple of months, WWE has been touting that Reigns’ title reign as one of the longest in company history, only behind Hogan, Sammartino, Pedro Morales and Bob Backlund. We are told that, as of today, there are still no plans for him to lose the title anytime soon. Some in the company have speculated that he will hold the title through next year’s WrestleMania (the hope is that The Rock will come back for one final match) and by that point, the company would start pushing Reigns as the greatest of all-time.
Reigns has been champion for 590 days. The last time Reigns lost a match was at the TLC pay-per-view on 12/15/2019. He lost a Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match to Baron Corbin on that show.
