Roman Reigns and Baron Corbin are two names that are coming together again on WWE SmackDown. However, their feud is outside the ring. Recently, Corbin and ‘The Big Dog’ engaged in a Twitter altercation.

It started after Raw’s Sheamus posted a tweet issuing an open challenge for the US Title. Baron Corbin responded to that, saying he would, but he would need to pour bourbon on him first.

Roman Reigns responded to Corbin’s comment, claiming all of them drink “flavored vodka” as opposed to Corbin’s claim about bourbon.

Baron Corbin took a shot at Roman Reigns by calling Reigns’ cousin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson the real head of the table. Moreover, he suggested The Rock send some of his tequila (Teremana) for them.

Now, ‘The Tribal Chief’ isn’t one to back down easily. He snapped back at Corbin with a witty comment and a final warning.

Even though this could have been the last message, King Corbin wanted the final say. Hence, after bringing in The Rock’s name to rile up Reigns, he used Paul Heyman’s name.

Who is Roman Reigns feuding with?

Currently, Roman Reigns doesn’t have a fixed rival to focus on. His last feud was with Daniel Bryan and Edge, and he defeated both of them with a double pin at WrestleMania 37.

While King Corbin may be an option, and the aforementioned Twitter banter could lead to something concrete on SmackDown, as there are others waiting for an opportunity to fight for the Universal title.

For example, Cesaro tried to have a confrontation with Roman Reigns on WWE SmackDown following WrestleMania 37, but it didn’t work out. Eventually, Heyman gave Cesaro a match, and put him against Jey Uso.

However, Cesaro couldn’t pull through because of Seth Rollins. Now, Rollins has a massive beef with Cesaro, so there’s a chance he will continue to attack Cesaro until he gets to avenge himself for the embarrassing WrestleMania 37 moment.

One option could be that Seth Rollins joins Roman Reigns, revives the former glory of The Shield with Jey Uso replacing Dean Ambrose. Following this, Reigns helps Rollins take down Cesaro, while Rollins and Uso ensure nobody gets close enough to the WWE Universal Champion to even become the number one contender for the title.
