With an article posted on the 434 facebook pages a few days ago mentioning that plans for Roman Reigns have not yet been finalised for Wrestlemania, here I look at five matches that are a possibility for Vince McMahons latest fan boy!
ROMAN REIGNS vs. FINN BALOR
This is probably the least favourite of all the matches listed, which is why I have put it first. What seems inevitable is that Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens will do battle for the WWE Universal Championship, which leaves nothing for Finn Balor upon his return. Well, think of their match from Raw when Finn made his debut after the draft. What is they decided to go down that route, put Balor in the ring with a multi time former champion, and see who comes out on top? Clearly the WWE Universe would go crazy if Reigns was victorious, but wouldn’t it be a match that could potentially bring the best out in someone like Reigns if he is put in a match against one of the best in ring performers?

Originally I didn’t have this one down on the top five matches for Reigns at Wrestlemania, however after this weeks Raw it does seem like it could happen. That, or WWE are trying to swerve us (which is always a nice sight to see). This would be built as Spear vs. Spear. Old vs. New. Powerhouse vs. Powerhouse. Whilst the match may leave little to the imagination, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this match happen with Reigns getting the rub from Goldberg.
ROMAN REIGNS vs. THE UNDERTAKER
This isn’t what anyone wants. Undertaker NEEDS to go against John Cena at Wrestlemania, but there has been talks of Reigns going up against Taker. Whether those talks are true or not, it is something that might happen. Reigns and Taker have had their battles (short lived) when The Shield was still a thing. But since Taker can be classed as a part-timer who works one or two shows a year, Wrestlemania would be the only way we are going to see Roman Reigns go up against the deadman!
WWE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP

There was a post up a few weeks ago saying how Sami Zayn’s underdog storyline needs to end at Wrestlemania. What better way for that to happen then to have him challenge for the US Championship and win it over a former WWE Champion? That would help his career after he gets destroyed by Strowman again (yes, get used to it, it will happen!) Sami has the in ring skills to help someone like Reigns in a match, and they could easily have a 5* match (doubt me if you will but no one expected Reigns and Big Show to have a match of the night candidate a few years back and they did!)

Or there is this one. The match I WANT to see happen! Strowman has a bright future in WWE if they treat him right. Don’t give him the same treatment others before him have had, such as Umaga, Rusev, The Great Khali. Keep building him up, make him undefeated until Wrestlemania 34, make him great! MAKE STROWMAN GREAT AGAIN! And with a match against Reigns, a singles match also, at Wrestlemania can truly be his shining moment. He is showing how strong, how fast, and how quickly he can learn going up against Sami Zayn at the moment and he could be the right man to take the US Championship off Roman Reigns, and what better place to do it then at Wrestlemania!
What do you guys of the 434 universe think? Do you see any of these five matches happening, if not what match do you want to see Roman Reigns in at Wrestlemania?
