Kevin Owens and Roman Reigns have faced each other in two consecutive pay-per-views now. Fans thought their rivalry is over at the Royal Rumble, but after last Friday’s SmackDown, it looks like WWE wants to continue their feud.
On Wrestling Observer Live, Dave Meltzer revealed the reason why Owens is still feuding with Reigns after what we thought was the final chapter of their rivalry.
Melter said that there isn’t anyone else in WWE that the company wants to put against The Big Dog. This might not change anytime soon unless Edge chooses to face the Universal Champion at WrestleMania 37.
“They idea is that they’re trying to elevate someone — they gotta! They have Big E, but Big E is in the IC Title thing and I don’t think he’ll be wrestling Reigns any time soon. Yeah, it’s been bad ever since Reigns came back.”
“They didn’t really even push Owens. They just threw Owens in that spot because they had nobody else and then they kept him in that spot because they got nobody else. They got nobody else unless they pull the trigger on Edge.”
