Triple H’s crazy booking idea for WWE megastar

Roman Reigns defeated Drew McIntyre in the main event of WWE Clash at The Castle back in September, and now we know why.

With the show taking place in the UK, fans thought Drew was going to end Roman’s historic 700+ day reign as champion, but that didn’t happen.

To the surprise of many, Roman retained his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against the Scotsman in the main event of the show.

Why did Roman Reigns beat Drew McIntyre?

In the latest Wrestling Observer NewsletterDave Meltzer explains that WWE wants Roman to be champion by the time his proposed match with The Rock takes place at WrestleMania 39.

Many fans speculated that this might be the case, but WWE questioned why Drew didn’t win, only to return the belt to Roman before the show in April 2023.

Meltzer addressed the idea, stating that Triple H and the rest of the WWE leadership team wanted Roman to become the longest reigning champion in WWE since Hulk Hogan. ResultTalk.

Reigns has been pushed as the company’s biggest star and they want him to be the champion for this match and potentially have a match with The Rock at WrestleMania. Sure he could lose it and win it back, but clearly he’s looking at a storyline that makes Hulk Hogan the longest-running champion since.

Seriously long title runs are rare in modern-day wrestling, so the idea of ​​Roman being the longest-reigning champion since Hulk Hogan was crazy to think about at the start of this historic run.

For context, Roman is already the longest reigning champion since Hulk Hogan, after winning the Universal Championship 750 days ago at Payback 2020.

Roman is not far from the reign of Pedro Morales in the 1970s, which stood at 1027 days. Reigns would need to hold the belts until July 2023 to defeat him, which is not unlikely if he defeats The Rock at WrestleMania.

Reigns would need to be champion until September 2024 to end Hogan’s reign, which began in 1973, and that seems impossible at this point.

Roman Reigns is the undisputed WWE Universal Champion

Later in the report, Meltzer revealed that YouTube megastar Logan Paul was linked to Drew not winning the award in Cardiff.

On November 5, WWE announced Paul v Reigns in Saudi Arabia, meaning Drew could not defeat ‘The Tribal Chief’ for his title.

He could have made up his mind to get it back in January after he lost to McIntyre, as he wanted Paul to Saudi Arabia and Saudi Arabia was Reigns’ next match.

Ricochet recently gave his prediction for Reigns’ potential match with The Rock at WrestleMania, which you can read more about by clicking here, and it’s sure to raise some eyebrows.
