Who needs titles when you can have a fight? Roman Reigns’ return to the ring would be classified as a big deal. After missing several months due to a recurrence of his leukemia, Reigns returned to action at Fastlane in a six man tag but has yet to have a singles match. Drew McIntyre interrupted what would have been his first singles match back two weeks ago, and now it’s time to pay.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Reigns accepted a challenge to face McIntyre at next month’s WrestleMania 35 in what is likely to be his return to singles competition. The challenge was issued last week by McIntyre, who came to the ring and demanded an answer this week. Reigns came out and accepted, triggering a brawl which was won by McIntyre thanks to a low blow and a Claymore. This will be their first ever singles match.
It had to come from somewhere. Check out the brawl to start it all:
Opinion: Not exactly a surprise here but this should be a good way for Reigns to get back into the swing of things. He’s healthy again and now we can see just how good he really can be. McIntyre winning isn’t out of the question either, but even if he does it’s going to be in a very high profile match. WWE isn’t going to get that spot to just anyone and it’s a good sign for his future with the company.
