Brock Lesnar Vs Roman Reigns Match Will Reportedly Be “Title vs Title”

Brock Lesnar laughs at Roman Reigns

A new report claims that the much-anticipated clash between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38 will be for both the WWE and Universal Championships.

With the Royal Rumble having come and gone, WWE is now on the “Road to WrestleMania.” This is usually a time for rumour and speculation, with 2022 proving to be no different.

One of the most anticipated matches of the two-night spectacular in Texas is the long-awaited rematch between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. The two last met at Crown Jewel in October 2021, with The Usos helping Reigns to escape with the Universal Title. This led to Lesnar demanding a rematch at Day 1. However, the proposed bout was cancelled after ‘The Head of the Table’ tested positive for COVID-19.

Following his WWE Championship victory at Day 1, Brock Lesnar confront Reigns on SmackDown, challenging him for a “Title vs Title” match. At the Royal Rumble, Lesnar’s reign was cut short when ‘The Tribal Chief’ interfered in his title defence, handing the gold to Bobby Lashley. On the following episode of Raw, however, ‘The Conqueror’ was confirmed as a participant in the upcoming Elimination Chamber match where he will try to take back his title. Lesnar has also confirmed he will challenge Reigns at WrestleMania 38 for the Universal Title.

Now, Dave Meltzer has reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, that current plans call for both the WWE and Universal Titles to be on the line when the pair go to war at WrestleMania 38.

“Lesnar said he wants to make WrestleMania a title vs. title match. We do know the original plan was for this not to happen, but plans change so frequently. The idea is also to book Reigns and Lesnar as strong as possible with the idea that the Mania match is the two top stars who are well above everyone else and the Mania main event is a dream match. It’s felt it’s needed since they’ve wrestled before, including at the last Saudi Arabia show (that Reigns won) and were planned to wrestle in Atlanta on 1/1.

At this point, the feeling on creative is that Vince will make the call to go with title vs. title, hence putting Lesnar in the chamber. There were those internally including Heyman and Lesnar pushing for it. The only thing we were told is that at press time the course to WrestleMania is once again set regarding both titles and there are a number of twists and turns to come. It’ll all play out at Elimination Chamber most likely.

The feeling internally was Vince was leaning in the direction of title vs. title, which would mean the originally planned WWE title match, whatever it would have been, is now off.”

As well as Lesnar, it was confirmed on the most recent episode of Raw that WWE Champion Bobby Lashley will have to contend with Riddle, AJ Styles, Austin Theory and Seth Freakin’ Rollins in the Elimination Chamber.
