WWE Survivor Series Fall-Out: Roman Reigns vs. Kevin Owens Booked at WWE Roadblock 2016?
WWE is planning to push for a champion vs. champion between Universal Championship title holder Kevin Owens and United States champ Roman Reigns after this Sunday's Survivor Series, according to pro wrestling pundit Dan Meltzer.
Reigns, who has expressed his desire to unify the coveted belts on Monday Night RAW as of late, is currently part of the red brand's team that will take on Smackdown's squad in a traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series showdown Sunday.
Over the past few weeks on RAW, the Samoan big dog has been pitted against Owens and his best-friend Chris Jericho who, if the rumors are true, will eventually become the Prized Fighter's opponent at Wrestlemania 32.
According to Meltzer, RAW's upcoming pay-per-view event Roadblock will serves as the stage for the champion vs. champion match between Owens and Reigns.
"WWE officials are currently looking at doing a champion vs. champion program with WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens and WWE United States Champion Roman Reigns, according to F4Wonline.com. Plans can always change but the idea is to do the feud in December, perhaps for the December 18th Roadblock pay-per-view from Pittsburgh."
Forbes.com wrestling writer calls Owens vs. Reigns a booking nightmare in the making. He believes the match-up would cause Vince McMahon, the head of the creative, sleepless nights figuring out how he can make it intriguing to the viewers without diluting the superstar's credibility as main-event performer.
"The feud between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar is reportedly causing headaches for Vince McMahon. Why? Because it's the definition of a booker's nightmare. If Goldberg is going to wrestle for WWE again, he shouldn't lose. But with Lesnar being booked as an unstoppable monster and the company's biggest draw over the last few years, he shouldn't lose, either."
WWE has given Owens the chance to shine this year after seeing their first Universal Champion Finn Balor succumb to injury in his first pay-per-view match at Summer Slam. It's going to be intriguing what the WWE up in their sleeves for the succeeding weeks.
