Roman Reigns, the WWE SmackDown star was set to face Daniel Bryan at WWE TLC in a WWE Universal Championship as reported by exclusively reported by Ringside News. But, after those plans were nixed, WWE has made new plans regarding the match.
Kevins Owens is the potential contender for Roman Reigns’ WWE Universal Championship
As per the reports of Ringside News, Kevin Owens is set to be the No.1 Contender for the WWE Universal title, held by Roman Reigns. On the latest episode of Friday Night SmackDown, Kevin Owens had an angle with Reigns’ cousin, Jey Uso and The Tribal Chief himself.
The opening segment saw Reigns cut a promo and stating that Jey Uso looks weak and talents in the locker room don’t fear them, which is a sign of disrespect to The Tribal Chief and their family.
An angry and confused Jey Uso put out his frustrations on Otis, who was making his way to the ring. Uso brutally assaulted him with a steel chair. He wanted to send a statement to the people at the back with his fierce actions.
Daniel Bryan got a title shot against the WWE Intercontinental Champion, Sami Zayn. After the match resulted in a count-out, Jey Uso once again turned up and this time attacked Bryan until Kevin Owens arrived at the aid of Bryan.
Kevin Owens then squared off against Jey Uso in the main event of the night. During the match, Uso hit Owens with a chair causing the match to end in a disqualification.
But, the tables turned soon as Kevin Owens made Uso taste a dose of his own medicine when he attacked him with several vicious steel chair shots. Owens sent a clear message to Reigns and also called him out but Reigns never came.
Thus, it can be concluded that Kevin Owens could face Roman Reigns at the upcoming WWE TLC. WWE could keep the Daniel Bryan/Reigns feud for bigger pay-per-view like Royal Rumble.
Owens has a huge obstacle in his path as he will be eyeing to capture the WWE Universal Championship but Roman Reigns, on the other hand, will be looking to establish himself as the top talent on the blue brand.
WWE TLC is set to take place on Sunday, December 20.
