Roman Reigns’ storyline is currently being treated in a different way by WWE. Reports suggested that Paul Heyman and Roman Reigns’ stories do not go through the normal WWE Creative team. Due to this, they can write special long-term stories for Reigns and it seems they are doing just that for next year’s WrestleMania.
Drew McIntyre will be challenging Randy Orton for the WWE Championship on RAW this Monday. Depending on the result, it could have long-term ramifications. Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE could be planning a feud between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre. He said that the match will be done at some point, so if it is not done now, then it is likely to be a match for WrestleMania.
It was also said that t WWE was “going hard” with the angle for a good reason. WWE desires fans to believe that McIntyre will defeat Orton for the WWE Title on RAW.
