Roman Reigns won the IC Title this past week...but who should step up to challenge him?

With his victory over the Miz this past week on Raw, Roman Reigns entered his name into an elite club of Grand Slam Champions in the WWE.

With WrestleMania 34, and his impending coronation against Brock Lesnar fast approaching, the distinction is yet another feather in Reigns' cap that the WWE can use to push the envelope when it comes to him.

But be that as it may, WrestleMania still isn't until a few months away and there's plenty of time for Roman to establish the Intercontinental Title by defending it against legitimate opposition and either continue on till Mania as the Champion or drop it to a worthy contender along the way.

The WWE has a great opportunity to create a John Cena US Championship Open Challenge like situation for Reigns here, by having him defend the strap against other Superstars on a weekly basis.

On that note, here are 5 deserving Superstars that can step up and challenge Reigns for the IC Championship.


#1 Samoa Joe

The nasty Samoan is as capable as they come, and will give Reigns a run for his money should he receive an opportunity to challenge for the IC Title.

I think it speaks volumes about how legitimate Joe can come across that he's still considered a credible threat to the likes of Brock Lesnar, without ever holding a Title on the main roster.

And it's also safe to say that he just doesn't get along with Roman Reigns, meaning that their match is bound to be an intense and hard-hitting encounter.

What's more, Roman Reigns has never beaten Joe in singles competition on Raw - something that the Samoan Submission Machine will rub in every step of the way.

Now imagine if Joe wins the title from Reigns. That would be an incredible way for The Samoan Submission Machine to win his first title on the main roster
