It looks like Roman Reigns will fight Kevin Owens for WWE’s Universal Title

After beating Rusev inside Hell in a Cell this past Sunday, WWE United States champion Roman Reigns turned his attention to Kevin Owens and Chris Jericho on Raw. The self-proclaimed Man ended the show by facing Jericho, only for Owens and Y2J to join forces for a beatdown on Reigns. Enter Seth Rollins, who saved his former Shield-mate as they knowingly gazed into each other’s eyes. Roll credits.

The whole thing led to speculation that we might be in for a champion v. champion matching pitting Reigns against Owens and his WWE Universal Title. On Friday, the PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, which will host the Raw-exclusive pay-per-view "Roadblock" next month, seemed to confirm those suspicions on the arena’s official Twitter page:


The card is always subject to change, of course, especially since this is just one tweet from the venue hosting the event. For now, you can probably put an Owens-Reigns match on your own personal List.

Both Owens and Reigns are scheduled to represent Team Raw at this month’s Survivor Series in a classic five v. five match, along with Braun Strowman and Chris Jericho. Team SmackDown Live will counter with Dean Ambrose, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Baron Corbin and A.J. Styles.

Naturally, one wonders if the planned matchup between Reigns and Owens will have an impact on Team Raw at Survivor Series. Could a disconnect between the two lead to defeat for the red squad?
