We are all still reeling after WWE SmackDown this week which saw Roman Reigns seemingly turn heel and join forces with Paul Heyman as his new advocate. If you want to hear more about the pairing of the powerful new duo and WWE’s plans for them check our recent article all about it here. Reigns signed the contract for the triple threat Universal Championship match against The Fiend Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman at WWE Payback as he looks to take back control of his yard. We've learned at TRR that word backstage is that WWE is heavily leaning towards putting the Universal Championship back on Reigns at Payback and that there’s a strong chance he walks out with the title. It may seem too soon for some as Reigns just returned and Bray Wyatt just won the title at SummerSlam but WWE is serious about having Reigns sit at the top on SmackDown and it looks like they don’t want to wait. As always things can change but that’s where we are at right now. Either way, get used to the idea of Roman Reigns having gold around his waist again shortly because it's coming.
