As you may know, Roman Reigns will be taking on Triple H for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 32 on April 3 at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
The Big Dog earned this opportunity after he defeated Brock Lesnar and Dean Ambrose in a triple threat number one contender match last Sunday at Fastlane.
Many fans have already predicted Reigns will win this match, and according to Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com, via NoDQ, they would be right. However, there's a lot more planned for the former Shield member moving forward beyond WrestleMania.

According to Meltzer, Reigns will: "remain the top babyface in the company for years to come. While WWE remains hopeful of making Reigns the next John Cena, Meltzer notes that Reigns' merchandise sales are good but nowhere near Cena's level."
He also said: "It's still possible Vince McMahon could get cold feet again like last year but the problem is that there aren't any other guys in WWE or NXT that fit the criteria of a "new" John Cena. For a guy such as Sami Zayn to pushed in that top spot, Vince would have to change his philosophy."
We've seen this push for Reigns for well over a year now, and a lot of fans are getting tired of it, but it seems like they're going to have to put up with it at least for another couple of years.
It's clear he isn't going to find the same level of success straight away, and essentially we are currently in the teething stage of this process. As noted, his merchandise sales are good, but one key thing that The Big Dog lacks which other top guys have had in abundance in the past is charisma.
Despite the setbacks, Reigns will continue to be pushed as the company's top babyface, starting off with a win against The Game at WrestleMania.
