Roman Reigns VS Braun Strowman


Roman Reigns is the current United States champion. He is also the number one contender for the Universal title. While there is nothing inherently wrong with it, Reigns’ US title reigns has been mediocre, to say the least. For one, he has not defended the title that much after getting past Rusev. Secondly, the US title holder eyeing the Universal title diminishes the value of the secondary title.

To make it worse, Reigns has not even mentioned the US title ever since entering into the program with Kevin Owens. The fact of the matter is Roman Reigns need to drop the US title if he is indeed focused on the Universal title. At the very least, make his match with KO a champion vs champion match with the US title on the line as well.

If Roman Reigns has to drop the US title, a feud with Braun Strowman could be the way to do it. As already established, Strowman is a monster heel and would have no problem coming across a variety of challengers. The fact that he is not in the main event picture at the moment would give him plenty of time to defend and showcase the mid-card title. Above everything else, both these guys have been built up as unstoppable forces. However, Strowman was booked much more organically than Reigns. He could prove to be ideal competition for Reigns.

The biggest concern as far as this feud goes would be Strowman’s position at the end of all this. A program with Reigns could either cement him as Raw’s ultimate monster heel. Or it could leave him much like Rusev after his feud with John Cena. Braun Strowman is riding on a ton of momentum at the moment.

If Reigns goes over him in typical fashion, all that momentum could very well go down the drain. Strowman winning the US title is a very tempting affair. However, I would rather see him without the title and kicking ass rather than possibly jobbing out to Reigns. The ruthless and methodical beating of Reigns last night was a testament to how far Strowman has developed as a heel.
