Brock Lesnar lost the undisputed WWE Universal title to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38.There was speculation after that match that Roman had suffered an injury that might keep him out for a while. Reigns competed in a six-man tag team dark match after Raw ended this week, proving those concerns were unfounded. There has been much speculation about who Roman Reigns will defend his belts against at WrestleMania Backlash on May 8 if he defends them at all. Lesnar has been defeated twice by the Tribal Chief in the last six months, showing that Roman is better than anybody the WWE can throw at him.
It worked against Shinsuke Nakamura's argument that he deserved to be the champion last week on SmackDow The question is, who will challenge Roman first? We may have an answer to that question based on WWE's advertising for their upcoming UK tour at the end of this month WWE is returning to Europe later this month, and its first blockbuster matches have been announced for its upcoming Live Events in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany.
There will be three bouts with significant championship implications taking place in London and Paris when the tour rolls through on April 29 and 30 WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns takes on Drew McIntyre Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey on SmackDown Women's Championship

Roman Reigns for the WWE
Due to the fact that all these UK shows take place before WrestleMania Backlash, it appears Drew McIntyre is first in line to lose against Roman Reigns for the WWE title. Then will Drew face Roman at WrestleMania Backlash for the undisputed title? As WWE has another premium live event coming up in the United Kingdom in September, I predict that they will acknowledge someone else at WrestleMania Backlash.
