Roman Reigns 1000-Days Title Reign Celebration
The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns completed 1000 days as WWE Universal Champion on May 27. However, he delayed this celebration due to his tag team match against Owens & Zayn. Now that he finally gets to celebrate this monumental milestone, the Bloodline is in tatters.
The Usos, Jimmy in particular, turned on Roman after he had enough of Roman’s dictatorship and obnoxious behaviour. However, the reason behind Roman’s anger was The Usos catching Solo Sikoa with a superkick. With Roman and Solo on one side and the Usos on the other, what kind of civil war will we see in The Bloodline? And how will it affect Roman’s 1000 days celebration?
LA Knight vs Montez Ford
LA Knight has been feuding with the Street Profits for a few weeks now. He even partnered with Rick Boogs to take on this team but lost. Last week, he defeated Rick Boogs and stated he could handle the Street Profits alone. This rivalry will continue as LA Knight fights Montez Ford in a Money in the Bank qualifying match.
Lacey Evans vs Zelina Vega
Lacey Evans will make yet another comeback in the squared circle in a match against Zelina Vega on June 2 episode of SmackDown. Evans hasn’t appeared ever since she got drafted on WWE SmackDown. On the other hand, Zelina Vega is coming off a rivalry against Rhea Ripley as she also challenged for the SmackDown women’s title but lost. Who will be the first woman to qualify for the ladder match?
New Women’s Champion
Asuka pulled off a win over Bianca Belair at Night of Champions to win WWE RAW Women’s Championship. Bianca’s 400+ days title reign, longest for women’s division in modern history, is not behind her. How will this title change affect the women’s division landscape? Will Bianca gets a rematch or do we see a new challenger emerging?
