This theory's been popping in my head ever since Reigns beat the Undertaker at Wrestlemania, and after last Monday's Raw, it looks like they might very well be heading in that direction. May sound a bit unbelievable, but once you hear me out, you'll know why this all made sense, right from Roman defeating Taker, to what happened last week.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Reigns was brutally attacked by Braun Strowman backstage, smashing him around like a rag doll into walls. The Big Dog was then put onto a stretcher by medics… before being thrown off the loading ramp and then having the ambulance he was in TIPPED OVER. He suffered internal injuries and cracked ribs in the attack keeping him out of action, and who is to say he won’t ‘die’ in hospital?
Imagine this, it’s revealed that Reigns has ‘died’ after the attack, and it is mourned on Raw in the coming weeks. Things eventually cool down, and go back to normal.
Now cut to SummerSlam season, and the lights go off on one of the episodes of Raw. Nobody knows what’s going on, and then Taker’s music starts to play. The crowd is shocked and everyone goes crazy. Lightning strikes, and a light goes onto a figure, wearing the famous hat, cloak and gloves, they lift their head.
Spoiler for reveal:
It’s Roman Reigns. He’s the Undertaker.
It’s been said numerous times that there will ALWAYS be an Undertaker, suggesting someone will have to take over his mantle. And Reigns would be the perfect person to take over…
Could the most hated man in the WWE be the new Deadman?
