Rumors were swirling about WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns’ undisputed match against Randy Orton at WWE SummerSlam 2022 this year. However, recent reports have suggested that Randy Orton’s back injury has become more serious than before and he may have to be out of action for a long time.
In this situation, the Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns match will hardly be seen at SummerSlam this year. However, since SummerSlam is a huge event, Roman Reigns must defend his title in this event. In this article, we are going to mention 4 WWE Superstars who can fight Roman Reigns instead of Randy Orton at SummerSlam 2022.
4- WWE Superstar AJ Styles
It’s been a while since AJ Styles took the babyface turn in WWE, however, he’s yet to get a big boost. AJ Styles was in a feud with Judgment Day until recently, and with AJ Styles’ partner Finn Balor joining Judgment Day, it looks like Styles’ feud with Judgment Day is over. Let us tell you, AJ Styles failed to qualify for the Money in the Bank match this year.
Since Roman Reigns needs a big opponent at SummerSlam this year, WWE could give him a big boost by picking AJ Styles as Roman Reigns’ opponent. If that happens, then SummerSlam 2022 may see Roman Reigns’ best match against AJ Styles and Styles will have a shot at becoming the World Champion again in that match.
3- WWE Superstar Sami Zayn
WWE Superstar Sami Zayn is now part of The Bloodline. Let us tell you that Sami Zayn failed to defeat Riddle on SmackDown last week. Paul Heyman had warned Sami Zayn before this match that if he lost this match, he could suffer the consequences.
This is the reason why it’s possible that Roman Reigns could savagely attack Sami Zayn and knock him out of The Bloodline in time to come. If that happens, the feud between Roman Reigns and Sami Zayn can start in WWE. After that, a match can be booked between these two superstars for SummerSlam this year.
2- WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre
WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre previously challenged Roman Reigns to a match at the Clash at the Castle event in September. However, due to Randy Orton’s injury, WWE may surprise everyone by booking this match for SummerSlam this year. Either way, fans have been waiting for this match to happen for a long time.
As a reminder, this year’s WrestleMania Backlash saw Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre face off in a six-man tag team match. However, watching these two powerful superstars face off in a one-on-one match will be a completely different experience and it can turn out to be a very good match.
1- WWE Superstar Bobby Lashley
WWE Superstar Bobby Lashley is currently in a feud with US Champion Theory. However, Theory is rumored to have a match against John Cena at SummerSlam, so the event will require another opponent, Bobby Lashley. It’s possible that this year at SummerSlam, Bobby Lashley’s match will be seen against Roman Reigns.
Let us tell you that after winning the Hell in a Cell event, Bobby Lashley hinted that he would join the World Championship picture against Roman Reigns while kissing the fake WWE Championship belt. This is the reason why the feud between Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns can be seen in times to come and after that a great match can be booked between these two superstars at SummerSlam 2022.
