Monday on Raw, WWE announced a SummerSlam rematch between Roman Reigns and Randy Orton. With just under three weeks left until Night of Champions, WWE’s biggest rising star may be in need of a solid singles program heading into the September pay-per-view.
Should Reigns and Orton compete on free television, especially if Reigns is victorious, it won’t make sense for the two to have a third match at Night of Champions.
Reigns has also begun a feud with former Shield member Seth Rollins as Rollins’ rival Dean Ambrose continues to sell injuries from the cinder block attack two weeks ago.
As a member of The Authority, Rollins makes sense as Reigns’ next feud, but the ideal feud for Reigns would be against Authority leader Triple H.
Unlike Rollins, Triple H represents a step up in main event competition from Orton. Reigns would be able to seamlessly continue his climb up the WWE ladder with a career victory over part-time wrestler Triple H.
A Triple H-Reigns rivalry would immediately train fans to begin taking Reigns seriously as a future WWE World Heavyweight champion, if they haven’t already.
