He’s up next. There has not been a WWE World Title reign like Roman Reigns’ current run with the championship in a very long time. With the longest title reign since the 1980s, Reigns is rapdily running out of challengers for his title. It means something to see him defend the title and now he is going to be doing just that on one of the bigger stages WWE has to offer.

Last week on SmackDown, Kevin Owens and John Cena defeated Reigns and Sami Zayn. This continued Reigns’ issues with Owens, which have been going on for a few weeks now. Therefore, this week, Owens challenged Reigns to a title match at the Royal Rumble. Reigns agreed and the match was set later in the show. The Royal Rumble takes place on January 28 in San Antonio, Texas.
There is a history. Check out the two going at it:
Opinion: Yes Owens and Reigns have fought each other before, even at the Royal Rumble, but that was a long time ago. Reigns needs someone fresh to fight and Owens would qualify, as I would think two years ago would be long enough to want to see it again. Owens has good chemistry with Reigns and doing it one more time on the way to WrestleMania is a good idea.
What do you think of the idea? How will the match go? Let us know in the comments below.
