What is the next step for Roman Reigns as WWE Universal Champion?

Roman Reigns’ reign as WWE Universal Champion reached 450 days earlier this week, and he proved his dominance over the entire WWE roster for the second year in a row by defeating the current WWE Champion, Big E, in the main event of Survivor Series on Sunday.

In a new interview with Sports Illustrated, Paul Heyman answers the question, “What’s Next for “The Tribal Chief?”

“Roman Reigns’ next goal is crystal clear: to be better tomorrow than he is today,” Heyman said.

“His goal is to be better in two weeks than he is next week, to improve next week’s SmackDown over this week’s, and to improve the SmackDown that airs in three weeks over the one that airs in two weeks.

Roman Reigns continues to set the bar high and achieve heights that no one else in WWE has or will ever reach.

Every Friday on SmackDown, the entire world gets to witness it unfold.”

In terms of his next opponent, WWE teased a number of Superstars in a preview of this week’s SmackDown, with the voiceover asking who was “brave” enough to take on Reigns.

Jeff Hardy is one of the people who has been very vocal about it in interviews.

Hardy recently told Sportskeeda, “I guess there’s three [goals]I think about more than anything else.”

“And number one, to be the Universal Champion, ideally defeating Roman Reigns because that’s one of my dream matches, because his stuff is so powerful now.”

Even with Seth [Rollins] in the ring and Dean Ambrose before he left, I’ve got to mix it up.

And they were The Shield, so that was their big deal, so now Roman’s the only one of us, and we’ve never met.

So I just feel like I belong in that story and will continue to belong in it.”

“I’ve talked about this a lot lately, Roman Reigns,” he said to Steve Austin in a promo for his new interview on Broken Skull Sessions.

The Bloodline irritates me, and he always talks about being the table’s leader.

“I want to smash the table’s head.”
