WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns exemplifies greatness at this moment. He has decimated several superstars, ranging from legends to upcoming talent. It seems WWE Creative is intending to work with a different opponent for the Tribal Chief at Royal Rumble 2024. This could snub the fan favorite, LA Knight, from receiving his rematch.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has confirmed that WWE is not contemplating a potential rematch between Knight and Reigns at Royal Rumble. Despite the WWE Universe craving to witness another encounter between the two, Triple H has some other plans in mind for Roman Reigns’ opponent at the January extravaganza.

We were told that as of this time, Reigns vs. Knight is not the title match at Rumble. That is Reigns’ next match. There are those who feel it should be Knight in that spot, but we were told [Paul] Levesque has another plan right now.

The Megastar gave the Tribal Chief a tough fight at WWE Crown Jewel 2023. He faced several interferences from Solo Sikoa and Jimmy Uso. Despite giving his best, he came up short against the vicious spears of The Tribal Chief. Many fans believe that a rematch is due because Knight was robbed of his win by Jimmy Uso.

Possible name who can step up to Roman Reigns at Royal Rumble 2024

WWE fans have witnessed The Tribal Chief running on a lighter schedule ever since he unified the WWE and Universal Championship. However, his next title defense is expected to be at Royal Rumble next year. The one name that is currently rumored to face the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion is AJ Styles.

The Phenomenal One is currently out because of an injury he suffered at the hands of Jimmy Uso and Solo Sikoa. Therefore, he will most likely look to exact retribution from The Bloodline after his potential return. This could lead him to the leader of the group, Roman Reigns.

Royal Rumble is a premium live event that heralds the Road to WrestleMania. WWE always looks forward to delivering a spectacular event. Styles is someone who shows exceptional prowess and has become a staple name. Therefore, a match between Roman Reigns and AJ Styles will likely blow the roof off Tropicana Field.

The Phenomenal One’s return is on the horizon. Many fans can expect WWE to weave a story that can see him go loggerheads with the Tribal Chief. For those who are unaware of their history, they can check out their Extreme Rules match back in 2016. It will be interesting to see how the storyline shapes up after Survivor Series.
