WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and WWE World Champion Brock Lesnar will square off at WrestleMania 38 for the new Unified WWE World Champion title
WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and WWE World Champion Brock Lesnar will square off at WrestleMania 38 for the new Unified WWE World Champion title. And the buzz around the much-awaited contest continues to grow. Soon-to-be Hall of Famer The Undertaker was quizzed on his prediction of the match. And although The Deadman found it a difficult task, he predicted that, Reigns will overcome the Beast Incarnate to cause a major upset in the summit clash of WrestleMania38.
“It’s a good question, and it’s hard to call,” The Undertaker said in a special video on WWE’s YouTube channel. “I’m going to go out on a limb, I say, Roman, what possibly would be an upset.”
The Undertaker understands the capabilities and weaknesses of Reigns and Lesnar well. He is one of the few superstars who had a chance to face-off both the superstars in his long and successful career of 30 years.
The Deadman, however, explained that as much as Reigns and Lesnar have good physical ability apart from being brutal inside the ring, it is the WWE Universal Champion who has an edge due to his calculated approach.
“Roman, man, he just exudes such confidence,” The Undertaker said.
“When I wrestled Roman, he was on the rise. He was still ascending to where he is now. A much, I don’t know, a calmer demeanor, but still just tons of energy, tons of charisma,” explained the Phenom.
“Other than the Ls I took, I really enjoyed working with him. It’s really entertaining to see guys that size be able to move the way they can and be able to do the things that they can—physical, brutal, especially on Brock’s end. Roman, much more calculated, but again, explosive athleticism, really athletic big man.”
Reigns continues his record-extending and milestone setting spree. The longest-standing Universal Champion has now remained unpinned for over 800 days, setting a personal milestone.
The last time ‘The Tribal Chief’ allowed any opponent to secure a pinfall victory over him was at the Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match at WWE TLC, on December 15, 2019, when King Corbin defeated him. And there is hardly any doubt that Reigns continues to establish himself as one of the superstars in the company in his still growing individual career after splitting with The Shield.
