WWE has scheduled a rematch between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar… This is a problem

Due to the company’s injury problems, WWE chose to have Roman Reigns defend his championship against Brock Lesnar for SummerSlam, which is an issue.

The top of WWE’s babyface depth chart is coping with major injuries. Cody Rhodes will be out for up to nine months after surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle.

Randy Orton’s back issue could force him to miss the rest of 2022. Sources say that Orton was supposed to face Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at SummerSlam on July 30 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee, where the Tennessee Titans play. This is the most damaging to WWE.

What was WWE supposed to do?

On the June 17 broadcast of Friday Night SmackDown, Reigns successfully defended his championship against Riddle. Then, in a promo, Reigns stated that no one is left to challenge him for the title. When Brock Lesnar’s music played, he attacked Reigns and The Usos to bring the program to a close.

According to WWE’s official Twitter account, Lesnar will face Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship in a Last Man Standing Match at SummerSlam.

This is a significant issue for the organization.

Booking-WWE’s biggest dilemma is Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar

Now that Reigns and Lesnar are going to fight again, WWE’s biggest problem is clear: they haven’t given Reigns any real opponents.

The roster of babyface challengers shrank after Rhodes and Orton were forced to withdraw due to injury. Drew McIntyre is expected to face Reigns at the Clash at the Castle on September 3 in Cardiff, Wales.

Bobby Lashley, a former two-time WWE Champion, was a serious rival for Reigns at SummerSlam. After defeating Omos and MVP in a handicap match at Hell in a Cell on June 5, he even gestured that he wanted the title.

Instead, in their moment of need, WWE turned to Lesnar.

This will be the ninth time Reigns and Lesnar have faced off in a premium live event match. The number could have been ten because the two were scheduled to compete for the Universal Championship on New Year’s Day at Day 1, but Reigns was removed from the match after testing positive for COVID-19.

Eight of the nine matches were for the world championship.

Reigns and Lesnar last faced off at WrestleMania 38 in the “Biggest WrestleMania Match of All-Time,” which was billed as the “Biggest WrestleMania Match of All-Time.”

To be honest, the fight did not live up to the hype. It went on for just over 12 minutes before Reigns pinned Lesnar with a spear and stopped it all at once.

While Lesnar has been entertaining since his return to the ring as a face in 2021, a rematch with Reigns isn’t as appealing as it once was. Some of you may be excited about the impending SummerSlam match, and that’s great.

The problem is that WWE is attempting a third title fight between these two superstars on a premium live show in less than a year. The mystique seemed to have vanished. The feud between “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and The Rock is not what WWE is portraying it to be.

Since Reigns won the Universal Championship in 2020, WWE has had a hard time finding many babyfaces who could challenge him.

With all of these injuries, they could have had a few good rivals for Reigns at this point. They do not, however. As a result, they’re going back to the Reigns vs. Lesnar feud.

Could this be a winning combination? Sure. Is there, however, genuine interest? Obviously, that depends on your point of view. Who may confront Reigns up until WrestleMania 39, which takes place in April, following yet another encounter with Lesnar?
