Dave Meltzer has noted on the latest Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE is likely going to book the big Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns feud after August’s SummerSlam events.
Meltzer notes that the plan is for Seth Rollins to face Edge at SummerSlam, meaning that he’ll be free to challenge his former stablemate for the Universal Championship the following month:
“That would probably be September, if they even get to it by September, because the last I heard for SummerSlam was Edge vs Seth Rollins. So, you know if Seth Rollins were to beat Edge then it makes all the sense in the world to go with Seth vs Roman Reigns at that point.”
This comes after Edge returned to WWE TV for the first time since WrestleMania on SmackDown this week. He will challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at Money in the Bank next month.
The Edge vs. Roman Reigns match will likely be used as the start for the Edge vs. Seth Rollins feud, as Rollins has stated that he should have been next in line to challenge Roman following Hell in a Cell.
