He could work. Roman Reigns has dominated WWE for over two years now, with one of the longest World Title reigns in company history. Reigns has run through just about everyone that has come in his path, which has not left him with many opponents left to come after him. WWE is going to need to look in a different direction to find a challenger and now someone is calling out Reigns.
Reigns successfully defended his Undisputed WWE Championship against Logan Paul in the main event of Crown Jewel over the weekend. Following his victory, SmackDown’s Santos Escobar sent out a tweet, saying that he was acknowledging Reigns, but when the time was right, Escobar would be coming for him. Escobar debuted on the main roster in October as the leader of the Legado del Fantasma stable.
@WWERomanReigns TRIBAL CHIEF!! Consider yourself ACKNOWLEDGED. When the time is right… I’m coming for you. ?????? #WWECrownJewel #SmackDown

Opinion: Sure why not. WWE absolutely needs someone fresh to come after Reigns and Escobar would be a brand new challenger. Even if it doesn’t happen, I like the idea of a wrestler talking about wanting to be champion. Ultimately that should be the goal for almost any wrestler so having Escobar talk about it puts him in front of a large portion of the pack. I could go for him coming after Reigns, as it would certainly be a different way to go.
What do you think of the idea? How would such a match go? Let us know in the comments below.
