Roman Reigns has been the WWE Universal Champion for over 400 days now, and he will put his title on the line when he defends the belt against Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel later this month.
WWE pulled the trigger on the Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar feud when The Beast made his surprise return at SummerSlam, and some were surprised to see WWE kick off the feud so soon.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter the Reigns vs. Lesnar match is not a one and done program. It was noted that unless The Rock is working WrestleMania next year then Reigns vs. Lesnar is the biggest possible match for the event.
The idea is to use the Crown Jewel match to build to a return whether that means Lesnar wins or the match ends in some sort of controversial finish is unclear. Crown Jewel will air on Thursday, October 21. Stay tuned for updates.
