Roman Reigns is set to defend the Universal Title against Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel on October 21st. Before WWE made this match official, it was previously reported that WWE had considered holding off Lesnar’s return until WrestleMania 38 next year.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Lesnar and Reigns are set to have more than one match.
From what we understand, and what makes sense is, this is not a one-and-done program. For one, unless Dwayne Johnson is wrestling Reigns at next year’s WrestleMania, this would appear to be the biggest possible ‘Mania match.
So the idea here is to build to a return, whether that means Lesnar wins to build to a rematch or some disputed decision takes place. There is also Paul Heyman in play as the storyline is written to tease that Heyman is a double agent and you don’t know who he will side with when all the chips are down.
It seems that next year’s WrestleMania is the next landing pad for Lesnar and Reigns to do battle.
