Whatever happens in the rest of his WWE career, Roman Reigns will go down in history as one of the most successful superstars of his generation.
After making his WWE main cast debut at Survivor Series 2012, “The Big Dog” won almost everything there is to win in WWE in the next seven years, including the WWE Championship, the Universal Championship, the Championship Intercontinental and the United States Championship, as well as the 2015 Royal Rumble.
Throughout his career, Roman Reigns faced a variety of opponents, from Brock Lesnar and Triple H to The Undertaker and John Cena, while leading four WrestleMania events in a row between 2015 and 2018.
In this article, let’s take a deeper look at some of the opponents that Roman Reigns definitely does not want to face.
Roman Reigns did not want to work with John Cena
It seemed inevitable after The Shield split in June 2014 that Roman Reigns and John Cena would face off in a high-profile matchup someday, possibly in the WrestleMania main event.
However, the long-awaited dream fight between two of the company’s most polarizing Superstars took place surprisingly at No Mercy 2017, an event considered a “secondary” pay-per-event, and it didn’t even headline the show.
Speaking to The Mirror, Roman Reigns made it clear that he did not request to face Cena at the time, as he hoped to face the 16-time World Champion in WWE’s biggest event of the year.
“Yeah, I mean, when I first heard about the fight with Cena, I immediately thought, ‘Man, let’s save this, let’s do it at WrestleMania.’ But when the time is right, the time is right. ”
The WWE Universe lets their voices be heard singing “Both suck”! when there was a match between Cena and Roman Reigns in the RAW episode after SummerSlam 2017.
Fortunately, the war of words between the two men in the weeks that followed turned out to be one of the best WWE segments of the year, and Roman Reigns’ clear victory at No Mercy helped cement his status as the next WWE leader. .
Roman did not want to fight Goldberg
Roman Reigns was supposed to face Goldberg for the Universal Championship in one of the best games at WrestleMania 36.
However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Roman Reigns chose not to fight in the event, meaning that Braun Strowman took his place and ended up winning the Goldberg title.
Speaking to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet at an event to promote WrestleMania 37, Roman Reigns reiterated that he was in favor of a bout with “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt over Goldberg.
“I would rather face The Fiend. She has broken her butt all year because of it. Without offending Goldberg, I think he is a great performer, he is a great superstar, but now I am in the future. “
As of this writing, Roman Reigns has yet to return to WWE programming and it is unclear whether the fight with Goldberg will take place at a later date.
Goldberg’s fight at WrestleMania 36 only lasted four minutes, with Strowman pinning him down after a PowerSlam, and the WWE Hall of Fame has not been seen on WWE television since then.
