Roman Reigns Wants To Face The Fiend, Not Goldberg
At Super Showdown in Saudi Arabia, we are set to see Universal Champion The Fiend face wrestling legend Goldberg. This match could have an impact on how things play out heading to Wrestlemania. With Roman Reigns being a strong favorite to face The Fiend at the event, a Goldberg win could throw a wrench into those plans.
Roman Reigns Has To Find His Road To Wrestlemania
Roman Reigns has been busy being involved in a heated feud with Baron Corbin, which seems like it will never end. They will clash again in a Steel Cage, and are both scheduled for the upcoming Elimination Chamber match. That match will determine who faces the Universal Champion at Wrestlemania.
Current advertisements indicate that Roman Reigns, Baron Corbin, Shinsuke Nakamura, Braun Strowman, Daniel Bryan & Bobby Roode will be in the match this year. All could be potential winners, but Roman Reigns is the favorite going into this match.
Roman Wants The Fiend
Speaking with ESPN, Roman Reigns talked about who he would rather face at Wrestlemania.
“From a completely honest standpoint, I would much rather face ‘The Fiend,'” Reigns said in this interview. “He’s busted his ass all year long for it. No offense to Goldberg. I think he’s a great performer. He’s a great superstar. But I’m into the future right now and helping out the guys that are gonna be in the locker room with me. There’s no doubt ‘The Fiend’ has put a lot of work into what he’s done. We all have.”
It is hard to argue with Roman’s stance here. While Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg is a match that should happen at some point, Wrestlemania should be a showcase of the biggest current stars in WWE. Legends are getting shine at the Saudi Arabia supershows, and while nostalgia can bring in viewers, they need to build stars.
Placing Roman Reigns & Bray Wyatt in a spotlight role at Wrestlemania will help build their stardom. Wyatt has worked far too hard for him to have his slot taken by a part timer. He has become one of the most popular stars in all of WWE, and deserves a major role at Wrestlemania.
