Out of the frying pan and into the fire.
Roman Reigns showed up to this week’s episode of Raw an unhappy man. One night after losing and getting busted open by WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar, Reigns cut a promo about being sick of “The Beast.”
He was out there shooting, straight out referencing all the reports going around regarding Brock’s status and eventual return to UFC. He said he will eventually conquer the champion and proceeded to drop the mic. Before he could leave, this happened:
#TheBigDog @WWERomanReigns knows that as long as he keeps getting matches against @BrockLesnar, he WILL become the next #UniversalChampion...— WWE (@WWE) April 10, 2018

"When you fail, once again, I'll be waiting at #WWEBacklash, to PUT YOU TO SLEEP!"— WWE (@WWE) April 10, 2018
Once @WWERomanReigns is finished with @BrockLesnar at #WWEGRR, @SamoaJoe will be waiting... pic.twitter.com/6HNDh3Va27
This seemed to set up a match between the two at Backlash, which goes down on Sun., May 6 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
