Backstage News on WWE’s Future Plans For Roman Reigns

According to Dave Meltzer on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it appears that WWE isn’t abandoning their plans of pushing Roman Reigns as a babyface and ultimately winning the Universal title. While the outcome last Sunday night at WrestleMania was a surprise, it is likely that WWE feels that this loss not only doesn’t hurt Reigns, but will make his victory mean that much more when he finally does capture the title.
Meltzer also added that after the match was over and a recap was shown, the cameras was still focused on Roman Reigns in the ring, recovering and staggering to get up which seemed to be WWE’s attempt to gain sympathy for him.
