Roman Reigns Becomes Undisputed WWE Universal Champion

Roman Reigns defeated Brock Lesnar in the main event of WrestleMania 38 night 2 to become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.

In the final match of the stupendous 2 night Premium Live Event, both men would hit big moves from the opening bell. Lesnar would hit big suplexes onto Reigns, and The Tribal Chief would retaliate by spearing The Beast through the barricade. Lesnar would nearly be counted out of the match early on, but ran back into the ring as the referee counted 9 out of 10.

Back in the ring, Roman would hit Brock with a spear for a close 2 count, but Lesnar would get up shortly afterwards and laughed at the assault. The former WWE Champion would then take control with more suplexes to Reigns, the smile growing as each suplex was successfully executed. Lesnar would then hit an F5 onto Reigns, but The Tribal Chief would kick out.

Later in the match, Reigns would drive Lesnar into the corner, knocking the referee unconscious in the process. Reigns would take advantage by hitting a low blow and a title shot onto the head of Lesnar, but The Beast would still kick out at 2. Reigns attempted a spear again, but Lesnar countered into a kimura lock, which was broken when Roman made it to the ropes.

Reigns was heard saying that his shoulder was out to Paul Heyman at ringside. A quick spear followed and Reigns picked up a sudden victory, much to the surprise of the WWE Universe.

After the match, Roman Reigns was handed both championships, but struggled to life the Universal Championship in his left arm. It is currently unknown whether this is a legitimate injury or if this was Reigns selling a kayfabe injury.

Lesnar earned the opportunity to challenge Reigns by winning the 2022 Men’s Royal Rumble. The match would become a winner takes all match when Lesnar would also go on to win the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber. Now that Reigns is the Undisputed Champion, it is unknown as to what Brock Lesnar will be doing next in WWE. It should be noted that at the time of writing, Lesnar has not been advertised for the Raw or SmackDown episodes immediately following WrestleMania.
