If this truly is “The Kevin Owens Show,” then the first threat of cancellation has come, because Kevin Owens will defend his WWE Universal Title against U.S. Champion Roman Reigns at WWE Roadblock: End of the Line, live Sunday, Dec. 18, on WWE Network.
Mere hours after retaining his U.S. Title at Hell in a Cell, Reigns inferred that his broad shoulders still had room for another title, and that his eye was set on Owens’ prize in particular. Tensions ran high between the two from then on, with Owens and Chris Jericho going so far as to jointly blame Reigns for Team Raw’s loss to SmackDown LIVE at Survivor Series. The Big Dog responded by questioning Owens’ abilities as a fighting champion, specifically his reliance on Jericho in his title defenses. A riled-up KO accepted Reigns’ offer of a No. 1 Contender’s Match the same night and, with Jericho indisposed, fell to Reigns in one-on-one action to make the title match official for Roadblock: End of the Line.
Will The Prizefighter retain his prize? Or is the Roman Empire’s war chest about to grow by one? Find out at WWE Roadblock: End of the Line, live Sunday, Dec. 18, at 8 ET/5 PT, live on WWE Network.
