Universal Champion Roman Reigns will battle newly crowned WWE Champion Drew McIntyre at Survivor Series, just six days after the Scottish Superstar reclaimed the throne from Randy Orton on Monday Night Raw.
Although losing the WWE Championship to Orton at WWE Hell in a Cell in October only intensified his heated rivalry with The Viper, that didn’t stop McIntyre from also taking stock of Reigns’ transformation on SmackDown. So much so that on Nov. 13, only days after securing his rematch for the WWE Title, McIntyre decided to step over to the blue brand. It was there that McIntyre made it known to The Big Dog that once he got done with Orton on Raw, he would be coming after the Universal Champion at Survivor Series.
That statement could not have sat too well with the Superstar at the head of the table. Despite positioning himself as the center of the “island of relevancy” on SmackDown, Reigns no doubt remembers that the last time the two Superstars tangled, McIntyre threw The Big Dog out of the Royal Rumble Match en route to earning a WWE Title Match at WrestleMania. The animosity only grew more evident later in the evening on SmackDown when, just moments after Claymore Kicking Jey Uso into defeat in the main event, McIntyre stood face-to-face with Reigns, serving notice that he meant business.
Now that McIntyre has overcome Orton to possess the WWE Title once again, the showdown between McIntyre and Reigns promises to be a collision of epic proportions. Who will prove himself to be The Best of the Best when the smoke clears?
