MVP and Paul Heyman have teased a huge match between WWE Champion Bobby Lashley and Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
The most recent episode of SmackDown was the first WWE show with a live crowd since WrestleMania 37. Following the special show, Paul Heyman took to Instagram to tell fans that history will unfold in front of their very eyes.
Arguing that Reigns stands above everybody else in WWE, Heyman captioned the photo:
“Last night was the first time @WWE #Smackdown was presented in front of LIVE audience since the start of the Era of the #TribalChief, and it all re-affirmed where #UniversalHeavyweightChampion @romanreigns stands right now, which is head and shoulders above anyone else .. above their connection to the crowd … above anyone else’s ability to raise the temperature in the room that’s already boiling over.
To be blunt, this is a most pivotal run in the chronicles of World Wrestling Entertainment. #RomanReigns has upped the levels of what an absolute top superstar in #WWE can deliver. And … here’s the best part … we’re just getting started!
Welcome back to the #WWEUniverse. With Respect, The Island of Relevancy Tourism Board Witness History Unfold in Front of Your Very Eyes.”

MVP took issue with Heyman’s words. Claiming that he knows a guy who Reigns wouldn’t stand over, MVP commented:
“While I both understand and respect the praise you heap on your associate, I strongly disagree with your assessment. Primarily the ‘anyone else’ part. I know a guy. An All Mighty one…”
In recent years, it has become tradition for the WWE Champion to do battle with the Universal Champion at Survivor Series. If either The All Mighty or The Tribal Chief loses their title before then, they could challenge for the other’s championship if they moved brand.
At Money in the Bank, Lashley will defend his WWE gold against Kofi Kingston. Reigns is scheduled to face Edge with the Universal Title on the line.
