Roman Reigns squares off against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34. The winner of this mammoth match will be honoured with the Universal Championship, the top prize in all of sports entertainment.

It has been universally acknowledged (no pun intended) that WrestleMania will be the end of Brock Lesnar's reign (no pun intended again). Who else can we see go toe-to-toe with Roman Reigns and future Universal Champions? We pick 5 WWE superstars who can challenge Roman Reigns and other subsequent champions for the Universal Championship.

As always, we invite you to leave a comment in the section below. We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this!

Honorable Mention: Dean Ambrose

Yes, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose have, of course, squared off in the past. However, there has never really been a full-fledged program between the two. This is because following their initial heel run, they've both been babyfaces. Could Ambrose return from injury as the company's top heel superstar?

Rollins had a full-fledged heel run as 'the man', the instrument of The Authority's abuse of power. Ambrose has always played the lovable lunatic, and one can argue that he needs a major change of gimmick. Ambrose could rise up the ranks from the upper mid-card if he takes on the mantle of RAW's top heel.

So, irrespective of whether it is Roman Reigns or someone else holding the Universal Championship, it may be quite interesting to see Dean Ambrose return. He is the first worthy challenger for the Universal Championship, in this list.

One can argue that Ambrose has always been on the verge of greatness, but something has always held the man back from the summit.
