As seen on RAW this past Monday night, Roman Reigns challenged the winner of the Samoa Joe vs. Brock Lesnar WWE Universal Championship bout to a title match at SummerSlam. We've mentioned that the plan for the main event for SummerSlam was for Lesnar to defend the WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Strowman vs. Lesnar for the title was still the plan as late as two weeks ago. Meltzer noted that if the plans changed, it could be because of the recent low ratings, with the idea being that Lesnar's limited schedule while holding the title could be hurting them. The original plan was for Lesnar to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, with Lesnar defending the title against Seth Rollins and Finn Balor before then.

I dont see the speculation, meltzer doesnt know and simply is giving reason as to why they mightve changed as if someone asked him about such change and was just giving his view as to why but he himself knows nothing of such a change in plans.

as of 2 weeks ago the plan is still the same going from this. Lesnar is losing at mania, whoever he faces, so in all honesty it doesnt even matter that much, strowman would just be more interesting than reigns.

Do they realize their Universal Title has less credibility to it than their IC Title?
