WWE Superstar Roman Reigns has been relatively quiet during his run after WrestleMania 31. He lost his WWE World Heavyweight Title opportunity when Seth Rollins cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase on him there. Reigns has done nothing of note, although he has been in the main event off and on. Now he is in a tag team match at WWE SummerSlam. The hope is that fans will take him seriously as a main eventer soon.
This is why it appears that we’re going to see Roman Reigns back in the main event very soon. According to Cageside Seats, WWE is looking to push Roman Reigns big again at toward the end of this year. This is most likely to help him get a big match at WrestleMania 32. WWE has not yet decided on the main event for the show yet. While The Rock is expected to wrestle, the WWE World Heavyweight Title match is set to go on last. Therefore it is uncertain what plans are yet, but Roman Reigns very well could be thrust into the main event yet again this year.
There has been some talk of having a Shield triple threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 32. This would allow us to see Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns in the main event. This is something most fans would be okay with, but it is not yet confirmed to happen at this stage. If WWE does go with this option, chances are that a push for Reigns wouldn’t be met with much controversy this time around.
However, if he were to win the 2016 Royal Rumble match, fans might boo yet again. Most feel that the best case scenario would be to have Dean Ambrose or Seth Rollins win the Rumble, another grab the WWE World Title, and the last find a way to weasel his way in. There are some rumors of either Roman Reigns or Dean Ambrose turning heel soon. If that were to happen, the heel in that duo very well could be thrust into the main event scene and easily could weasel their way into anything.
There’s a lot that would have to come into play for something like this to occur, but it’s not impossible. Regardless, we know Roman Reigns will see yet another WWE push. How far that goes this time around is not yet known, which is completely opposite of what happened last year this time.
