Speaking of dream matches, we got a glimpse of this one back at WWE Survivor Series 2019. Keith Lee took part in the 5-on-5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Match representing Team NXT, while Reigns was there to represent Team SmackDown. In the final moments it was only Lee and Reigns remaining, and that night Roman Reigns took the win.
It was the first main roster exposure for “Limitless” Keith Lee, and he’s been poised for the launchpad to success ever since then. After mixing it up with Brock Lesnar at the 2020 Royal Rumble and defeating Randy Orton at WWE Payback, Keith Lee is a definite main eventer and we need to see him facing Roman Reigns one-on-one.
The perfect option, in my opinion, is none other than The New Day’s Big E. With Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods out of action, Big E has been pushing himself as a singles competitor and continued that with a big singles victory over Sheamus at WWE Payback.
This would be, as Big E says, “BIG MEATY MEN SLAPPIN’ MEAT,” and I don’t think there’s a single fan that wouldn’t love to see these two square up inside the ring. Big E is ready for his singles run, and taking on a deadly serious Roman Reigns is the perfect next step for the man who once beat down his opponents for a count of five in his NXT days.
