Reigns came back from his hiatus at SummerSlam and picked up the title at Payback. Within two weeks of his return, he got a second Universal title reign. However, being in line with his “wreck everyone and leave” motto, Reigns won the title after appearing at the last moment in the triple threat contest against Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman.

The following night on SmackDown, his cousin Jey won the number one contender’s match. It was later revealed that his inclusion in the match as Big E’s replacement was Reigns’ idea. They fought alongside each other in a tag match last week, scoring a win.

Roman Reigns is here to win everything and leave

Clash of Champions will be the first proper singles match for Roman as a Champion. Considering Roman’s reign as a heel champion has just begun, WWE will not drop off the title so soon.

The company is building the ‘Big Dog’ as the top heel as well as the top guy. If Roman loses the title, those plans will be decisively stalled.

Even though the result is a foregone conclusion, the match is still worth a watch. Roman Reigns is expected to consolidate his heel character, which means that he will demolish and pummel his cousin to dust.

If he does so, the rest of the Anoa’i Family may join in the family vs family feud. The dispute can stretch up to WrestleMania next year, leading to a certain Hollywood star showing up.

We also have to look out for Jey Uso. His performance in this match will develop his credibility as a singles competitor.

The Usos were well known for their tag team endeavors. However, this is the first time Jey is competing as a singles performer in a Championship match.

It will be interesting to see how long the match goes. Will Roman give his cousin enough time to make him into a serious singles competitor moving forward? Moreover, The Fiend might make his comeback to teach Reigns a lesson in respect.

Despite the speculations, anything can happen this Sunday. We have to see how the match ends and how far Reigns will go to keep his title.
