Since Roman Reigns became Universal Champion in the summer of 2020 he has defeated everyone that has stood in his way. His list of vanquished foes included stars such as Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Edge, Bryan Danielson, Finn Balor and now Logan Paul among others. As the list of the conquered increases, the list of potential fresh opponents gets smaller. However, one man thinks he has the solution.
During a recent edition of Busted Open Radio, former WWE Superstar Tommy Dreamer suggested that Gunther could be the man to face Reigns at WrestleMania.
Roman Reigns Vs The Ring General Has WrestleMania Potential
Dreamer was speaking before Reigns defeated Paul at Crown Jewel and explained that was victory was secured, there weren’t many viable opponents available. Gunther is coming off the back of retaining his Intercontinental Championship against former World Champion Rey Maysterio. In fact, since moving to SmackDown from NXT back in April, the giant Austrian is yet to taste defeat in singles competition.
“It was great [Gunther vs. Rey Mysterio]. It helped Gunther because we’re talking about Roman Reigns. We’re talking about Logan Paul. If Roman Reigns beats him, eventually — then I say the person they have to go to is Gunther versus Roman at ‘Mania. Because then I’m like, ‘Who else can do it?’ And I don’t know who else can do it.”
It has long been rumoured that Roman Reigns will be taking on Dwayne Johnson in a main event for the ages at WrestleMania 39. Although at time of writing there has been no confirmation from WWE, or Johnson’s camp that the match will be taking place. Speaking in a recent interview, The Rock’s close friend and former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz gave an update on the Hollywood megastar’s schedule. Gewirtz noted that while Johnson isn’t filming anything in the run up to WrestleMania, he will be working on the launch of the XFL.
