Bengaluru, March 17: It was previously reported that regardless what WWE thinks about Roman Reigns, he would end up being a heel while facing The Undertaker. There is nothing greater than the Deadman's aura in this business and everyone ever pitted against him had felt that.
The Big Dog is no one different despite WWE continuously pushing him and trying to establish as the biggest wrestler in the company. The fact was supported by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter who said that Roman Reigns would eventually become the biggest heel in the WWE during his feud with the Undertaker.
This is what he stated in his report:
"Undertaker Vs Roman Reigns. No matter what the long-term plan is as far as Reigns and a heel turn, he will be the biggest heel on the show."
Meltzer further added how WWE would go with planning for this match. People would not like to see Taker losing in his home-turf of Wrestlemania but if they are really willing to pit him against Brock Lesnar in near future then he has strong chances of coming up with the win. Here are his words:
"The finish here is very interesting. People will passionately hate the idea of Reigns winning, but if the idea is to go to Reigns as the guy to beat Lesnar (which was the plan at WrestleMania two years ago but they held back based on crowd reaction, which has only gotten worse since then), then Reigns shouldn’t lose to Undertaker at this stage of the game."
This will be worse for WWE if they still do not go with the idea of turning Reigns into a heel. This is a golden opportunity for the company to make the so-called franchise player into a negative one since he is paired opposite none but the Deadman.
We have to wait till Wrestlemania to see what the exact plans are regarding this feud. If by any means Reigns retires Undertaker at this year’s Mania, there would be a major fan backlash over it.
