5 WrestleMania 34 opponents for Roman Reigns instead of Brock Lesnar
Five realistic opponents that Roman Reigns could have at Wrestlemania 34 that aren't Brock Lesnar.
Anybody who has watched WWE regularly for the past couple of years knows what is coming for us in the main event of WrestleMania 34: Roman Reigns standing tall over a UFC destined Brock Lesnar holding the Universal Championship.
This is almost a guaranteed sight but what if the rising Braun Strowman is the one standing over the "Beast Incarnate" as the night ends? Where would that leave the "Big Dog"? Here are several directions that Reigns could realistically head in April.
#5 Samoa Joe
Let’s start with a match that seems the least likely owing to Samoa Joe's injury, but could potentially steal the show at WrestleMania. Reigns vs Joe was a feud that dominated Monday Night Raw for the majority of Reigns’ run as Intercontinental Champion. There were times when it seemed like Joe was going to win the title, but we all had that feeling that he wouldn't get a big win over Reigns while the belt was on the line.
Without a championship up for grabs, this would be a match that could swing either way. Joe was on his A-game after coming back from injury in late 2017, with both promos and matches that were averaging at three stars or more. It was as if he had found his stride in the WWE.
Reigns is the perfect foil to Joe being the true heel that he is. This match doesn't even need to be built. Let these guys go in an extreme rules match to become the number one contender for the Universal Championship and you have the match of the night at WrestleMania. While it does seem a little bizarre to have a #1 contender match at WrestleMania, it will allow WWE to get everyone on the match card without overcrowing the title bouts.
