Reigns has taken out a lot of stars in his current time, and there aren’t many reliable names left for him to face. He recently beat the company’s biggest babyface, Cody Rhodes, at WrestleMania to continue his historic title reign.
Although the ‘Table Top’ will not be taking part in Backlash, his next title defense is said to be scheduled for the Night of Champions Premium Live Event in Saudi Arabia. However, it remains unclear who Reigns will face at the event, as he is currently not involved in any feuds.
News Xero provided an update on the situation, noting that Bobby Lashley, AJ Styles and Karrion Kross were the three names discussed as the superstar’s next rival. All Mighty was ported to SmackDown on First Night of Drafts. Lashley immediately eyed Roman Reigns after switching to the Blue brand.
AJ Styles, Karrion Kross, Bobby Lashley – all considered fit to win the title with Roman Reigns.
It is not known when these will happen or if locked down but all three names are under discussion.

Roman Reigns is unstoppable as the undisputed WWE Universal Champion. He became invincible and the company had to introduce another title belt just to give someone else a chance at the top.
