Roman Reigns has been in the title picture for several months, but he failed to defeat Brock Lesnar and win the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34, and he failed to win the title once again at the Greatest Royal Rumble.
This week on Raw, Roman tried to get back in the title hunt when he faced off against Finn Balor and Sami Zayn in a Money in the Bank qualifying match, but just when it seemed Roman was closing in on a victory, Jinder Mahal interfered and pulled him out of the ring.
Now it looks like Roman’s feud with Jinder could be a lengthy one, as Roman vs. Jinder is currently being advertised for Raw live events through July, meaning that The Big Dog could be feuding with The Modern Day Maharaja until Reigns begins his program for SummerSlam.
Cedric Alexander is the current WWE Cruiserweight Champion, and every star on 205 Live is gunning for his title.
Cedric will defend the title later this month, and earlier today General Manager Drake Maverick confirmed that he’ll be defending the belt against Buddy Murphy on the May 29th episode of 205 Live.
You can check out the official announcement below.
