Roman Reigns is set to be the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, but not until WrestleMania season, which means that something is going to get in Roman's way next month.
There has been a hint that Dean Ambrose could be set to turn on his long time friend and that could make sense, given that Roman has now left Ambrose alone to fight Braun Strowman, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan so that he can go after the title.
CAN ROLLINS DEFEAT REIGNS ALONE?
Rollins and Reigns never managed to have the rivalry they were set for last year because Reigns suffered an incarcerated hernia and was instead replaced in his Night of Champions match by the returning Dean Ambrose.
The two then had a headline feud that ended at Hell in a Cell when Bray Wyatt went after Dean Ambrose. By this time, Roman was back, but WWE weren't ready to risk him at main event level.
The big question is whether or not Rollins can defeat Roman on his own, and if he doesn't will it fall to Ambrose to cost his long time friend and partner the match?
Rollins managed to defeat Kane on his own at Hell in a Cell and this could be a turning point for the once cowardly champion. Rollins definitely has a point to prove against his former Shield stablemate and right now, there is no one left in The Authority to help him.
Heading into The Royal Rumble, Reigns and Ambrose could have a headline feud whilst Rollins holds onto his Championship before Reigns takes it early next year, but as for right now, Rollins looks like he could be on his way to becoming the Champion he was always supposed to be and it seems to soon to put the title on Reigns.
