It took a while, but Roman Reigns is finally confirmed to be part of a match at WrestleMania Backlash. He will be joining The Usos to take on Drew McIntyre and RK-Bro in a six-man tag team match that promises to be fireworks.
Despite so many champions being in the ring together in this match, nothing will be on the line on Sunday. But that doesn’t mean there is nothing at stake. In fact, tensions have been boiling over between the two teams in recent weeks.
The Tribal Chief has reigned as champion for close to two years now. In that time, he has taken on opponents ranging from Brock Lesnar to Daniel Bryan, and he hasn’t been pinned in that time. However, fans are confident that the Scottish Warrior will be the one to hand Reigns his first pinfall in a while.
The question arises whether WWE should do the unthinkable and have the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion take a pin in the match. On that note, we present two reasons for and against that happening.
#4. Why Roman Reigns should be pinned at WrestleMania Backlash: It would instantly make the show a big deal and put more eyes on SmackDown
Roman Reigns is the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. He is the top star in all of WWE, one who hasn’t been pinned in over two years. If he is competing in a match where there are five other men, logic dictates that he must be protected.
Even if The Bloodline takes the L, one of Jimmy or Jey Uso can be the one to take the pin. Having Reigns pinned is great for shock value, but it’s not like WWE doesn’t have any other options in the match. One of The Usos taking the pin would also be beneficial for the storyline, particularly if The Head of the Table gets angry at his cousins for dishonoring him.
