Fans have been talking about Reigns facing his cousin ever since the former proclaimed himself the Head of the Table. Roman has also called out The Brahma Bull on a couple of occasions in the past, which has led many to believe that the showdown may happen at WrestleMania this year. However, the Hollywood star is reportedly "not in shape" to compete on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Roman spoke about the issue during his recent appearance on The Tonight Show. The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion highlighted that being ring ready is different from training in the gym.
While Reigns seemingly put a block on a prospective match, many fans believe that the SmackDown star is throwing them off the trail, and The Great One will indeed return to his old hunting ground.

Roman Reigns addressed his upcoming match with Kevin Owens at WWE Royal Rumble
Roman Reigns will also be in action at Royal Rumble, where he is slated to defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Kevin Owens. The Tribal Chief addressed his long rivalry with KO on The Tonight Show, stating that he's "genetically coded" to beat Owens every time.
"I've been beating up Kevin Owens for years now. Let me give this guy's due. This is a tough, sturdy guy, and he's a little crazy. He's willing to do anything out there. But I've faced him a few times and I've been pretty successful. So for me, I just feel like, as long as I don't change anything, if it's not broke, don't break it, just stay in the same system, and pretty much I feel like I'm genetically coded to beat Kevin Owens every time."
It'll also be interesting to see what role Sami Zayn will play in the title match. Roman Reigns told The Honorary Uce on RAW is XXX that he will have a final chance to prove his loyalty to The Bloodline at Royal Rumble.
