Win or lose against The Undertaker, it has recently been speculated that Reigns could be in the main event of next year's WrestleMania against Brock Lesnar for the Universal title in a move to push him towards overtaking John Cena as the WWE's biggest superstar.
The 50-year-old is reportedly near the end of his WWE contract and has just two shows left.
It's no secret Brock Lesnar vs Bill Goldberg is scheduled to cap off WrestleMania this year but according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE already has WrestleMania 34's main event locked in place at this juncture.
Having Roman defeat Lesnar at WrestleMania 34 would be the finish WWE had planned for WrestleMania 31, but they changed the finish due to negative fan reaction to The Big Dog.
From a story telling standpoint, you would have the only two men who beat Undertaker at WrestleMania facing off for their brand's biggest prize.
After breaking through into the mainstream in November of 2012 alongside his "Shield" brothers Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns rose to prominence as a singles competitor in 2014, which was followed by a run that's seen him headline Wrestlemania as well as win the WWE world title three times. "Lesnar vs. Reigns was fantastic". Instead of an interesting and much needed heel turn, Reigns will continue to be the top babyface that "defies the odds" while half of the audience loathes his existence.
Furthermore, WWE wants Reigns to replace John Cena as the global face of the WWE organization in the next year-and-a-half with Lesnar putting over Reigns at next year's "Mania". It's believed Lesnar will never work a full-time schedule but he will work more shows over the next year, live events and TV tapings. Roman Reigns haters are getting younger and younger.
Thankfully, we all know a year is a long time and plenty of things can change in the insane world of the WWE.
