Aside from the 30-person Royal Rumble matches, one of the most expected bouts on January 29 will be Universal Champion Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins' singles clash.Both men have a storied history with each other as good friends and opponents. They at first made a significant effect on the main roster along with Jon Moxley (f.k.a. Dean Ambrose) in The Shield. The trio's original run ended back in 2014, after which Reigns and Rollins took on in several one-on-one matches.
Although the faction had subsequent reunions after its preliminary split, things have actually altered substantially with the current Universal Champion's heel turn and his upcoming opponent's goofy "Drip God" personality.Let's take a look at tonight's prospective finish for Reigns vs. Rollins.
Roman Reigns maintains his title in a tidy result at Royal Rumble 2022
The Tribal Chief comes across as the preferred to win on most celebrations nowadays. WWE Royal Rumble could continue that tradition, with Reigns triumphing over his former stablemate.
While Seth Rollins has actually jumped in and out of the top title picture over the last couple of years, he is no longer the pure babyface who wins often. On the other hand, his current competing claims to be in "god mode" right now, which is not a false name provided his record since August 2020.
So when it pertains to how dominant both men have been on television recently, Reigns quickly wins the contrast. Hence, a tidy success for him at Royal Rumble would not be a far-fetched scenario.
WWE higher-ups might wish to maintain stability by keeping the title on Reigns. And Rollins would not look weak in losing to The Tribal Chief at this moment in the latter's championship run. Still, the history in between these competitors indicates that the match will likely be competitive.
