WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is putting the title on the line against Seth Rollins at Royal Rumble 2022. If it were up to Reigns, this match wouldn’t have been happening.

During WWE SmackDown: January 14th, 2022, The Tribal Chief and The Drip God finally had a conversation. Well, it was more of a verbal war than a conversation.

Soon, Reigns got tired of his antics and finally destroyed Seth Rollins by putting Becky Lynch over him.

“You look like a clown. You sound like a clown because you’re a clown. You clearly don’t have the star power that I have. You’ll never reach the levels that I’ve reached. Let’s just be honest, if I was looking for a Superstar, a megastar, I wouldn’t have chose you from Raw. H*ll, you wouldn’t have even been the one I would have chose from your household. If I wanted to main event the Royal Rumble with a megastar, I would have chose your wife.”

In fact, The Tribal Chief even refused to do The Shield’s signature move by joining his fist with Rollins’. According to Reigns, The Shield was beneath him now. Unfortunately, Seth Rollins didn’t get a chance to respond to that.

Roman Reigns had reinforcements prepared to take down Seth Rollins

When The Tribal Chief was making his comments about Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch, little did Rollins know something else was up. He turned back just in time to find The Usos coming up behind him.

‘The Drip God’ managed to avoid them and rolled out of the ring. When they came for him again, he smashed them onto the steel steps and announcers table, stared down Reigns for a brief second, and rolled out of the ring again to walk back up the ramp.
