Over the course of time, fans have often seen WWE favor the top stars of the promotion. They could be doing this to keep the viewership afloat. However, it becomes monotonous and boring for some fans. Some would argue the same regarding Roman Reigns‘ case right now. The Tribal Chief has been the reigning Universal Champion for WWE for over 1000 days. This is making WWE overlook some other important stars as well.

Bully Ray hosts a podcast called, ‘Busted Open’ with two other co-hosts. In a recent episode, all three of them discussed how WWE is picking Reigns’ title to be superior to all others. For reference, Seth Rollins recently became WWE’s new World Heavyweight Champion after defeating AJ Styles at the Night of Champions.

However, the title win didn’t make much of a difference for him as WWE booked Rollins in a tag team match on Monday Night Raw. This infuriated the Hall of Famer because he believes the company could’ve done better for Rollins’ first night as the WHC.

According to Ray, this is a problem because Rollins’ achievement will be for nothing if he doesn’t get the right chances.

Who will Roman Reigns face in the future?

We can’t consider predictions and rumors to be 100% true unless they turn out to be so. However, Dave Meltzer‘s prediction about Reigns’ future opponent may make up for an interesting ‘food for thought’. The reporter claimed that WWE fans could see Solo Sikoa turning on The Tribal Chief to fight to become the head of the table.

For those of you who don’t already know, Sikoa won a title during his NXT days. However, this achievement is missing since his main roster era.

This prediction could sound a bit extreme to half of the WWE fans. While the other half would already be imagining a scenario where Sikoa is feuding with his cousin. Will this scenario block out other championship storylines even more? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
