Roman Reigns will be in a huge title match at Night of Champions but he won’t be defending the Undisputed Universal Championship.
The Tribal Chief is set to team up with Solo Sikoa in a bid to show The Bloodline members Jimmy and Jey Uso how to get things done against Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Titles.
A volatile situation hit boiling pointas Roman made to address The Usos’ failings in the tag ranks since the massive weekend in Hollywood.
There, he was able to successfully overcome Cody Rhodes and retain his title, while before losing a recent rematch, which they dedicated to their cousin.
On Friday, Roman berated them for their losses in his name, at one point pie facing Jimmy as he blasted him, only for Jey to step in and apologise in an attempt to save his brother from a beatdown.
Paul Heyman then revealed it will be Roman and Solo teaming up in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on May 27 as they take on Sami and Owens.
It will mark a very rare appearance in Saudi Arabia for the champions – who are lifelong friends while Sami is of Syrian descent – and they’re doing so in a match with major implications.
Roman twisted the knife on The Usos too, dedicating the upcoming bout to the best tag team in WWE history – the Wild Samoans, Afa and Sika.
It was a great moment in a storyline that has gone on for around three years now with plenty of drama and intrigue, just as some fans thought it was running out of steam.
The only disappointment is Roman not defending his Undisputed WWE Universal Title at Night of Champions, a show which appeared to have been created to celebrate him reaching 1,000 days as champion.
Instead, it looks like he’ll be challenging for the tag championships as the saga picks up steam again with a huge summer approaching for WWE with Night of Champions also seeing the .
WWE Night of Champions airs on May 27, 2023. Tune in via the WWE Network.
