In this article, we will look at three things that should happen at Royal Rumble and two things that shouldn’t. So, without further ado, let’s begin.
#3 Should happen at Royal Rumble 2021 – Roman Reigns retains his Universal Championship
Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship against Kevin Owens at Royal Rumble 2021. This will be the third title match between the two Superstars since they started feuding on WWE SmackDown towards the end of last year. As confirmed by WWE, this will be a Last Man Standing match between the two Superstars.
Their first encounter was governed by TLC (Tables, Ladders, and Chairs) stipulation while their second match was inside the Steel Cage. Reigns ended up winning both these matches, thanks to crucial interferences from Jey Uso. The latter is once again expected to make an appearance and help his ‘Tribal Chief’ at Royal Rumble.
Earlier this month, Reigns and Jey Uso teamed up and brutally attacked Kevin Owens. He went missing from WWE television and in the meantime, Reigns turned his focus towards Adam Pearce. His entourage forced Pearce to enter a Gauntlet match that would determine the challenger for the Universal Championship at Royal Rumble and ensured that the retired Superstar wins the battle.
Following that, an arrogant Reigns signed the contract for their title match but was shocked to see that he had been beaten in his own game by Pearce who was working with Owens. This turn of events allowed KO an opportunity to challenge Reigns for the championship once again. Last week on WWE SmackDown, he manhandled Reigns to ensure that he sends a clear message ahead of their title match at Royal Rumble.
