Roman Reigns' contentious promo on WWE SmackDown last Friday mocked World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins. Reigns said The Visionary's title was number two while he had number one.
The 2024 Men's Royal Rumble winner Cody Rhodes later faced the Tribal Chief and told him he would not battle him for the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 40, giving his spot to The Rock.
WWE veteran Matt Morgan called out Roman Reigns' SmackDown promo gaffe.
Morgan noted on the Gigantic Pop podcast that Reigns should not have denigrated Rollins and his belt, even though the promo was amusing.
Former WWE star Matt Morgan worked there from 2002 to 2005. Morgan wrestled in many promotions after his release, but his time with TNA from 2007 to 2013 is most notable.
The Rock unexpectedly confronted Roman Reigns on SmackDown after Cody Rhodes' shocking statement.
Several minutes of face-to-face time between The Great One and The Tribal Chief seemed to solidify their WrestleMania 40 matchup.
According to sources, The American Nightmare will challenge Seth Rollins for the World Heavyweight Championship at the Show of Shows. Last Monday on RAW, The Visionary advised Rhodes to challenge him for his title instead of Reigns'.
