It’s that time of the year again where fans and analysts alike begin to discuss which matches we may see take place at WrestleMania, with seeds potentially being planted at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view in January.
Currently, rumours have suggested that Roadblock: End of the Line will feature Seth Rollins and Chris Jericho going one-on-one, while current United States Champion Roman Reigns is expected to challenge Kevin Owens for the WWE Universal Championship.
REIGNS VS OWENS AT ROADBLOCK?
It’s not expected that Reigns will walk out with two championship titles, as a win allows Owens to continue looking strong as Raw’s biggest and most dangerous champion, but there are some very intriguing long-term plans for Reigns.

There hasn’t been much speculation recently as to what Reigns will be doing at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando next year.
At first, it was thought another match with Brock Lesnar was going to be on the cards, but with the emphatic return of Bill Goldberg, that’s certainly off the cards.

According to Dave Meltzer, who was speaking on the latest episode of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Reigns could actually be taking on Braun Strowman next spring.
REIGNS VS STROWMAN IN THE WORKS
He already revealed that his next feud will be against The Big Show – another way of putting Strowman more over as the biggest monster in the WWE – before entering a feud with Reigns.
He said: “Braun Strowman is gonna face Big Show next.
“They’re gonna do the ‘body slam challenges’ at the house shows starting in December.
“So, they’re gonna do that, and obviously Big Show is a setup, then it’s Roman Reigns. It could possibly happen at WrestleMania 33.”
This could potentially be a huge step-up for Strowman, who’s had to squash smaller stars since the brand extension, before recently doing the same to Sami Zayn.
He looked good in the Survivor Series match, where James Ellsworth got him counted out of the match, and after a beat down, Strowman still look strong after the event.
Another strong showing against his biggest opponent in The Big Show could be the perfect way to begin a feud with a legitimate main event star.
While it has the potential to be a great match, let’s just hope the company doesn’t build up Strowman to suffer the same fate Bray Wyatt did at WrestleMania XXX against John Cena.
