Roman Reigns will be the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion for a staggering 1000 days on May 27th, which also happens to be May 27th. night of champions PLE from Jeddah. reigns coming this friday smack down from Knoxville, TN, where it may be known who his next opponent will be.
It’s questionable to believe that person will oust Reigns, as it appears WWE is hinting at that position for someone else, and it’s not Cody Rhodes.
It doesn’t look like Reigns’ hegemony will end any time soon after the events of Reign wrestlemania 39, where most thought he would lose the title to Rhodes. But WWE has plans to take away the title from someone in the near future, doesn’t it?
Rhodes appears to be the perfect successor, given the storyline that has him trying to get back in a title match and being asked to suffer adversity from the likes of Brock Lesnar. However, it is not a foregone conclusion that will happen. A rare player was added to the mix Raw Earlier wrestlemania,
Rhodes took on Sequoia solo, marking Sequoia’s first loss. Since then, Sequoia has got a good push by doing more main events. of raw And smackdown’s, Not only that, but his character continues to evolve weekly as he is placed on the card and in meaningful other segments on the weekly show. what seemed like a solid, logical main event Raw growing in wrestlemania 39Now the future of Solo seems foreshadowing.
Has Rhodes been a red herring this whole time? It certainly would be an interesting route to take creatively if this is indeed what WWE is doing. There will be a lot of backlash (no pun intended) from fans, with most likely this being another dangerous decision from Vince McMahon. But, honestly, the way Paul “Triple H” Levesque is booking, it looks like he’ll do as well.
Levesque is all about long story and character development, according to WWE’s Q1 financial media call on May 3. Ever since he took over the creative job on July 25, there has been a real change in WWE.
The plots are more coherent, clear, and told with a longer narrative. The stories are still not perfect by any means. There are still goofy, eye-catching moments that can make anyone question why they’re watching, but seeing the development of someone like Solo Sequoia gives reason to believe there are bigger ideas ahead.
One idea could be to dethrone Sequoia, not Rhodes, for the undisputed WWE Universal Championship.
It all sounds like a familiar story, and Levesque knows it too. The stable of Evolution (Triple H, Ric Flair, Randy Orton and Batista) lasted much of 2004–2005. Raw brand. The purpose of the stable was to establish future stars in Randy Orton and Batista. When Orton was pushed a little too fast, Batista became next in line to challenge Triple H for the title. on which he did wrestlemania 21, Winning the World Heavyweight Championship.
If you look back at that story, it’s in the same vein that WWE may be leaning towards Reigns and Sequoia. At this point, Sequoia is like any good James Bond henchman to his boss – ironically Batista played a role in the dark shadow — and it takes some serious work to make sure Reigns reigns supreme as champion. But a henchman remains only a henchman so long as he gets fed up with his villainous boss.
Roman Reigns and Solo Sequoia fit perfectly into the roles of Triple H and Batista in 2005. With Paul Heyman playing a similar role to Flair for Triple H, watching the storyline unfold, although similar, could make for exciting television. Whether we find success with Sequoia or not, we will have to wait and see.
WWE has found itself in a strange position with Roman Reigns. opposite the undertaker wrestlemania Streak where he didn’t have to lose, Reigns’ streak as champion must have a winner. He cannot remain champion forever; He is already starting to run out of opponents. Rhodes is the most logical but Sequoia is the bigger surprise and probably the bigger story.
The Bloodline storyline has been one of the hottest angles in recent WWE history. It makes sense for the company to finally cash in on the angle that — even if it’s not in Sami Zayn or Cody Rhodes ways — what this story has been about the entire time: a royal family of wrestling.
