WWE Extreme Rules 2017: 3 Potential Opponents for Roman Reigns

4 of 4

1. Brock Lesnar

The WWE Universal Champion has not been seen since he captured the title at WrestleMania, he needs to come back because Raw does need its title in the picture. Brock was likely going to face Braun Strowman, this is something that can and should be held off until SummerSlam. That is a big headline match, in the mean time a good way to get him back on TV and the title back in view would be a feud with Roman Reigns. These are the only two men to have victories over The Undertaker at WrestleMania, they could easily use that to lead to a feud.

With Roman saying it is his yard, Brock could say well it is his ring, and the fight would be on. There is no doubt the crowd would be behind Brock in this potential feud, however, the wild card is Paul Heyman and that man can talk. If he can manage to get the crowd behind Roman in any way shape or form that would be a huge step forward for the man. In any case seeing these two compete for the title would make for a good main event for WWE Extreme Rules, the return of Lesnar is a big deal and to see what they can do with Roman in this scenario is quite interesting.

Whatever happens, moving forward creative have to book Roman Reigns properly. If they want to keep him as the face of the company, they need to win back support. Either of these potential feuds could help do that, it just needs to be booked the right way.
