Roman Reigns is at the top of the WWE mountain and that’s not likely to change anytime soon. Head of the Table appears sporadically on SmackDown, with his own crew often battling him.

So, as the wheels of supremacy in The Bloodline’s company turn, it will be interesting to see how things shake out for the tribal chief and his cousins. Who will be next to challenge the undisputed WWE Universal Champion?

This list is an attempt to predict the next six months as the Tribal Chief Company’s top champion. He’s set to wrestle at every ‘Big Four’ event and in Saudi Arabia, so he’s a base.

Here are predictions for what could happen between now and WrestleMania 39 for the Roman Reigns, whether it’s two belts, one or none.


#4. Roman Reigns defeated Logan Paul at WWE Crown Jewel 2022

The Crown Jewel match will be held this Saturday in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. There’s no way Logan Paul is going to end his dominance by beating Roman Reigns, right?

WWE would have fans believe for a brief moment that the YouTube sensation could dethrone The Tribal Chief, largely due to The Maverick’s athleticism. He has adapted very well to the world of pro wrestling, so expect a fun match between him and Reigns.

But it will be the leader of The Bloodline who will stand tall at the end of the Crown Jewel.


#3. The Bloodline defeated Team KO at WWE Survivor Series 2022

Roman Reigns is set to headline Survivor Series later this month, where he will potentially team up with current foes The Bloodline. The group is in conflict with The Brawling Brutes, who have recently been overwhelmed by the numbers game.

Perhaps the Sheamus-led trio could enlist some help in forming a five-man team to take on The Bloodline in a WarGames match. Kevin Owens is an obvious choice to lead them with his match experience and a potential storyline involving Sami Zayn himself and the Anoi family.

Another popular babyface like Braun Strowman could also join Team KO. However, expect Reigns to stand tall as he continues his dominant winning streak. But that doesn’t end the problems with The Bloodline.


#2. Roman Reigns defeated Sami Zayn at WWE Royal Rumble 2023

Problems within The Bloodline are making for one hell of a storyline on SmackDown, with Sami Zayn’s role in the group gaining popularity. That’s why he’s going to be WWE’s biggest babyface after he’s kicked out of the group.

By leading a storyline-driven Universal Championship match at the Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns could order his cousins ​​to attack Zayn by the end of 2022. An honorary Uce may come close to winning, only to fall short due to the prowess of a tribal chief.

Regardless, the final match between Reigns and Zayn will likely be a classic, with both superstars playing their roles to perfection.


#1. Roman Reigns defeated The Rock at WrestleMania 39

Since Elimination Chamber 2023 is not taking place in Saudi Arabia, Roman Reigns will most likely not be defending the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania 39.

But The Show of Shows may present the biggest match of the tribal chief’s career. If The Rock is available, WWE will book the match. This needs to happen for Reigns to come full circle as head of the table.

The two can tell a complicated story with their cousins, in which the fate of The Bloodline hangs in the balance. For example, the Great One who could turn the Uso’s against the Roman Kings.

Ultimately, however, the 37-year-old needs to stand tall on The Rock to cement his legacy as one of the all-time greats. Nothing is bigger than WWE booking at WrestleMania 39, especially for Reigns. But what if Mr. Hollywood is too busy fighting his cousin?


Alternate for #1. Cody Rhodes defeated Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39

WWE is in great shape heading into WrestleMania season, where a potential ‘Plan B’ is just as good as a ‘Plan A’.

If The Rock can’t return to the ring, the company should focus on ‘Mania 39’ ending Roman’s reign. And there’s no better man to dethrone him than Cody Rhodes, whose stock has doubled since he competed in the Hell in a Cell match with a torn pectoral muscle.

With American Nightmare still months away from returning, the Royal Rumble seems like the perfect place. If he’s cleared by then, Rhodes should win the 30-man match and challenge for the WWE Championship, whether Roman Reigns drops it or not.

But with The Rock out of the picture, Cody will track down both belts and focus on finally defeating the tribal chief. What a way to close the show of shows.

Cody Rhodes should dethrone Roman Reigns, whether it’s at WrestleMania 39, SummerSlam or later. This would make him an instant legend on the spot.
