WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns has now commented on his shocking match announcement for Night Of Champions.
During Friday’s (May 12) edition of SmackDown, it was confirmed that members of the Bloodline will challenge for Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens’ WWE Tag Team Championship at the May 27 premium live event.
To the surprise of many, it was revealed that it won’t be The Usos in this match, with Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa announced as the title challengers.
Reigns has now taken to Twitter to share a bold prediction (or spoiler):
I’m about to have all the titles. #WWENOC @WWESoloSikoa
Roman Reigns is recognised as the WWE Undisputed Universal Champion, after unifying the WWE and Universal titles in April 2022.
The Tribal Chief has held the Universal Championship for almost 1000 days, after winning the gold in August.
Zayn and Owens won the tag titles from The Usos at WrestleMania 39, and defeated them once again in a title rematch on the April 28 episode of SmackDown.
The reason why Sami Zayn can now wrestle in Saudi Arabia has potentially been revealed.
