As noticed at The Royal Rumble PPV remaining night time, ”Mr Wrestling” Kevin Owens got here out on most sensible towards ”The Big Dog” Roman Reigns in his bout and retained the WWE Universal Championship after outdoor interjection from ”Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman.
Initial reviews pointed against a ”Reigns as opposed to Strowman” program after Royal Rumble PPV, as the 2 are scheduled to stand each and every different on RAW Live Events heading into WrestleMania 33. Also, there have been reviews that Owens can be going through ”The Underdog from the Underground” Sami Zayn at the ones presentations.
The ”Owens as opposed to Zayn” suits can be for the WWE Universal Championship, despite the fact that Dave Meltzer noted on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that the ”Reigns vs. Strowman” suits can be headlining the ones presentations, however the plan is for Reigns to move head to head with ”The Deadman” The Undertaker at WrestleMania, which used to be teased all through the Traditional 30-man Royal Rumble match.
It seems that Kevin Owens as opposed to ”The Icon” Bill Goldberg for the WWE Universal Title can be booked for WWE FastLane PPV on March fifth, with Goldberg profitable the name after which protecting towards ”The Embarrassed Beast” Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 33. Meltzer stated that it’s certainly the plan.
Meltzer had first reported in last week’s issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that neither ”The Phenomenal” A.J. Styles or Kevin Owens have been scheduled to go into ”The Grandest Stage of them All” WrestleMania as champion.
Bill Goldberg does no longer paintings WWE area presentations, so if he have been to defeat Owens at WWE FastLane PPV as in step with the plans, that might imply that the WWE Universal Title would no longer be defended at RAW area presentations between FastLane and WrestleMania.
