3 Possible Rivalries for Roman Reigns after Backlash

Brock Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns at Greatest Royal Rumble. What’s next for Roman Reigns? Right now, Brock Lesnar is the longest reigning Universal Champion. Roman Reigns had 2 chances to prove himself and bid farewell to Brock Lesnar. The first match ended on a rampage and the second one at Greatest Royal Rumble promoted a controversial finishing.

Roman Reigns defeated Samoa Joe at Backlash. It is time for WWE to pushover superstars like Roman Reigns into new desirable storylines in rivals.

1. Finn Balor

Finn Balor vs. Roman Reigns, thinking of this match can give me goosebumps. They did face amid of Summerslam and Finn Balor defeated Roman Reigns and eventually became the Universal Champion by defeating his former shield brother. But that match was not what we call as a “This is Awesome” match.

Finn Balor relinquished his title by reason of injury. Since then, he never received his Universal Championship rematch. Roman Reigns vs Finn Balor, at a PPV before Summerslam 2018 is a good booking idea that I would sell to WWE. The stipulation must be “Winner faces Brock Lesnar at Summerslam 2018 for the Universal Championship”.

This match can be either way and mostly unpredictable at the moment. Finn Balor vs Roman Reigns would be the ideal thing that WWE must plan for. Unlike the last match which went off without a build, this must be based on a hot topic. Moreover, Demon Finn Balor facing Reigns will be the icing on the cake.

Finn didn’t accomplish anything that worth mentioning since his return from injury. Roman can benefit from facing a star like Balor and turning in a heel eventually.

2. Bobby Lashley

Bobby Lashley returned the Raw After Wrestlemania and he is currently finding ways to create new rivalries. We all wanted to see Bobby Lashley vs Brock Lesnar, but let that happen at Wrestlemania 35. Until then, I will be more than happy to see Roman Reigns vs Bobby Lashley taking place at Summerslam 2018.

Bobby Lashley just entered the Greatest Royal Rumble match and delivered a forgettable performance.

Lashley could be interfering the match between Finn Balor and Roman Reigns, costing Roman’s spot to face Lesnar at Summerslam. They can round-up this as a rivalry and bring some heat to the Summerslam picture. Lashley is one of the owners of most powerful in-ring moves. While Roman Reigns is the modern version of Lex Luger according to what WWE is currently doing with him.

Bobby Lashley vs Roman Reigns at Summerslam 2018 must be entertaining like eating a hot dish with ice cream on the side.

3. Kenny Omega

Did Kenny just hint his WWE debut? I think he just did it. Kenny Omega just commented on Roman’s tweet with a smile showing off the dominance. But if he makes his way to WWE, Roman should be his first target.

Think about Kenny Omega interfering in the match between Finn Balor and Roman Reigns, entering the match with a mask and then revealing himself. This one surprise can bring WWE back on form.

We saw Omega take on Chris Jericho. The match proved what we can witness in a better camera.

They are the three rivalries that WWE must pull off for Roman Reigns. Therefore, you know that the match (Lesnar vs Reigns at GRR) just ended controversially. This means that WWE can pull off Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar once again.
