June 25, 2017 - WWE
WWE isn’t creation it transparent who Roman Reigns will face during SummerSlam.
Although Reigns has let it be known that he wants to plea for a Universal Championship during a biggest pay-per-view of a summer, his reignited adversary with Braun Strowman might have thrown a wrench into those plans. There is, after all, a lot of doubt about what we’ll see during SummerSlam, as skeleton for many of Raw’s top stars seem to be adult in a air.
But Reigns, who has categorical evented the three highest-grossing events in WWE story (WrestleManias 31, 32 and 33), will positively play a vital purpose during SummerSlam, where he total to be concerned in one of a biggest matches on a card. With a approach things now stand, however, WWE’s No. 1 full-time star doesn’t have a definite opponent, so who should he face?
Here is a ranking of a 5 best probable opponents for Reigns during SummerSlam.
5. Finn Balor
Balor was degraded in a Fatal 5-Way during Extreme Rules and is being relegated to a argument with visitor Elias Samson, though there are reportedly outrageous skeleton in place for “The Demon King.” According to Sportskeeda, “Balor is now penciled in to be in the Universal Championship match at SummerSlam,” that shows that WWE has some-more faith in him than his new miss of a pull might indicate.
But given that a Universal pretension compare during SummerSlam might be more likely to be Braun Strowman vs. Brock Lesnar, Reigns vs. Balor would be a illusory further to what is certain to be a star-studded card. WWE, after all, has clearly attempted to make SummerSlam a company’s summer chronicle of WrestleMania, and a conflict between Balor and Reigns, arguably a dual biggest babyfaces on Raw, could positively assistance a association accomplish that goal.
Reigns and Balor have usually faced off twice and have any picked adult a victory. Therefore, a rubber compare during SummerSlam could be a outrageous captivate that maybe establishes a leader as a No. 1 contender for a Universal pretension .

The uncover drew 3.102 million viewers on Jun 19th, a staggering boost from a 2.542 viewers (the lowest of a year) it drew final week. Clearly, there was a ton of fan seductiveness in a intensity of a reincarnated adversary between Reigns and Strowman, that has simply been a red brand’s many interesting adversary of 2017, one that’s been a strike among TV and YouTube viewers.
This has been one of those singular rivalries that has brought a best out of dual superstars and towering them both, that begs a question: Why would WWE finish it prematurely? As prolonged as Reigns vs. Strowman is operative and generating seductiveness among fans, WWE should severely cruise fluctuating it to SummerSlam, where a adversary can strech a consummate during a “Big Four” uncover as it deserves.
