#5 Could Cesaro and Roman Reigns slug it out in a WWE Universal Championship match?
More than one member of the WWE Universe wanted Cesaro to win the Elimination Chamber match this week and face Roman Reigns thereafter. Unfortunately, The Swiss Cyborg came up short in the contest. But maybe that was for the best if you consider how the ensuing Daniel Bryan vs. Roman Reigns match played out.
Maybe the build to Cesaro vs. Roman Reigns begins on the episode of SmackDown that follows Elimination Chamber. For the Swiss Cyborg to enter the WWE Universal Championship picture would be a big step up for him. And he could come up short thanks to Seth Rollins.
This could play the framework for Seth Rollins vs. Cesaro at WrestleMania. Cesaro's WWE Universal Championship feud could lend him the credibility he needs to enter this feud with a lot of momentum. Does Cesaro currently have the credibility to enter a feud with Roman Reigns at Fastlane, in your opinion?
