News About Roman Reigns, WWE: Roman Reigns Reported “Major Challenger,” Brock Lesnar Situation, Goldberg Agreement

News About Roman Reigns, WWE: During his stint as Universal Champion, Roman Reigns has defeated a number of notable competitors, including several WWE Legends and Hall of Famers. There were many rumors circulating about his opponents, but only a couple of them were accurate. Former WWE Champion’s fate was revealed, along with his potential match with The Tribal Chief.

Goldberg, a two-time Universal Champion, has been making infrequent ventures into the ring in recent years. We’ll talk about the speculation about his deal and whether or not it happened. In that case, let’s not waste any more time and have a look at the five most popular rumors instead.

High-End Live Show Put on Hold

Since its beginning in 2009, TLC (Tables, Ladders, and Chairs) has been an annual feature of the WWE Premium Live Event calendar. According to an October 2017 report by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the event was canceled and the December 2018 Premium Live Event would not take place.

The news proved accurate; on January 1, 2022, a new Premium Live Event, Day 1 took the place of TLC. Big E defended his WWE title against Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Bobby Lashley, and Brock Lesnar in the night’s main event.

The Specifics of Goldberg’s Lucrative Contract

After nearly seven months away from the ring following his loss to Drew McIntyre at Royal Rumble 2021, Goldberg made his in-ring return and immediately entered into a heated battle with Bobby Lashley. As a result, of Goldberg’s son Gage getting involved, their rivalry went personal and The All Mighty won the first round at SummerSlam 2021.

Dave Meltzer said that in the middle of this big fight, the Hall of Famer was paid more than anyone else for competing in performances in Saudi Arabia. Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia would be the site of his rematch with Lashley.

Goldberg finally got his revenge on Lashley in a No Holds Barred bout at Crown Jewel, but it wasn’t for the title. After the match, he returned in February of this year to fight Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at the Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia, giving support to the rumor.

When WWE Comes Back to Saudi Arabia

WWE has held at least two large shows in Saudi Arabia every year since forming a 10-year relationship with the General Sports Authority in 2018, with the exception of 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic.

WWE will reportedly return to Saudi Arabia for a major event in the first quarter of 2022, as reported by PWInsider, following the success of the Crown Jewel event in 2021.

The rumor proved accurate, as Brock Lesnar did, in fact, win his first Elimination Chamber battle at the aforementioned WWE Elimination Chamber Premium Live Event in February of this year.

Roman Reigns defeated several notable opponents during his historic Universal title run, but none were as well-known as Brock Lesnar. In the WrestleMania main event, the two superstars fought each other several times. Nonetheless, their trilogy of battles began at Crown Jewel 2021 and concluded at SummerSlam 2022.

The Tribal Chief was expected to face Drew McIntyre at Crown Jewel, as reported by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.

After Crown Jewel, the two superstars frequently competed against each other in the Dark division, but they never met in a championship match. The Head of the Table successfully defended his championship against Sami Zayn on an episode of SmackDown! after defeating The Beast.

In a year, at Clash at the Castle 2022, Drew McIntyre will face Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship.

How Brock Lesnar Currently Ranks

After leaving WWE for more than 16 months, Brock Lesnar returned at SummerSlam 2021 to face Roman Reigns, setting up the stated match at Crown Jewel. On SmackDown’s first episode of the WWE Draft, The Beast Incarnate also made an appearance and announced that he was a free agent.

The Beast did not make an appearance on RAW the next week, despite widespread expectations otherwise. On the contrary, he showed up on SmackDown two weeks later to officially sign the contract for his bout against Reigns.
