Roman Reigns vs AJ Styles feud could end after Extreme Rules

Football News

Roman Reigns is currently scheduled to face off against AJ Styles at Extreme Rules for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship this weekend in an Extreme Rules match.

This will be the second time the two superstars have faced off against one another in the middle of the ring for the title at a pay-per-view, after they met once before at Payback earlier this month with Reigns coming out of the event as champion.

The feud so far between Reigns and Styles - The Bloodline vs The Club respectively - has been one worth investing in for the fans. The first clash at Payback had some brilliant wrestling, and the WWE Universe will be hoping this carries on into the match at Extreme Rules this Sunday.

But as we enter the summer months and towards SummerSlam - arguably WWE's second biggest pay-per-view of the year - storylines and booking angles change, and according to Cageside Seats, changes are going to occur in the WWE title picture as well.

They have said: "The Roman Reigns vs. AJ Styles match at Extreme Rules is expected to be the last match in their feud, at least on pay-per-view. It's at least possible that the direction going forward will be Styles opposite Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson and that's how they transition out of it."

This would go against what was the original expected timeframe of the feud; that it would last until Money in the Bank.

While some fans might be unhappy to see the Reigns vs Styles rivalry go, closing the door on The Phenomenal One winning the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, if you look at some of the superstars returning to the ring over the next couple of weeks, you can see why the feud is coming to an end.

John Cena is expected to make his return to the WWE on Memorial Day on May 30. After then, Seth Rollins, Randy Orton, and Bray Wyatt are all expected to come back in the weeks following him as well, leaving us with a rather cluttered, but open, main event picture for the WWE title.

Reigns could face any one, if not all, of those superstars mentioned above with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the line over the coming months, possibly facing Rollins at Money in the Bank next month - as he will be demanding his rematch for a title he never lost before injury - and Cena in a widely speculated headline event for this year's SummerSlam at the end of August.

As for Styles going opposite Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, that could be a very interesting storyline, and it could indicate the debut of former NXT Champion Finn Balor in the not-so-distant future. A clash between the two at SummerSlam sounds like it could be on the horizon.
