Backstage Plans for Roman Reigns

Big news coming out of the rumor mill, as it would seem that the plans for Roman Reigns have changed. The WWE had originally planned for Reigns to feud with Braun Strowman through the Extreme Rules pay-per-view, however, with the injury to Strowman, those plans have fallen through.

According to a report by Wrestling INC., the plan was to see Reigns lose to Strowman in an Ambulance Match; setting up for a Strowman/Brock Lesnar feud, with Roman moving over to feud with The Miz. But, with Braun out with a rotator cuff injury, the Miz/Reigns feud has been pushed up.

According to the report, sources say that the plan is for Roman Reigns to win the Intercontinental Championship from The Miz; from there, he would later challenge Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34.

The plan being that the Universal title is the only title that Reigns hasn’t won.

Whether or not the WWE plans on pulling the trigger for a Reigns/Miz IC Championship program remains to be seen, though. The Miz is set to challenge Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose for the title this Monday on RAW.
