5 Possible Opponents for Roman Reigns in WWE Crown Jewel 2023

Roman Reigns is reportedly set to work the upcoming WWE Crown Jewel 2023 Premium Live event. The Tribal Chief retained his WWE Undisputed Universal Championship against Logan Paul at last year’s Crown Jewel match.

While WWE has yet to announce Roman Reigns’ Crown Jewel 2023 challenger, some reports suggest that The Head of the Table will put his championship on the line against John Cena. Speaking of John, the 16-time world champion defeated Jimmy Uso and Solo Chikova in a tag team match with LA Knight at Fastlane 2023.

Let’s take a look at five possible opponents for Roman Reigns at WWE Crown Jewel 2023.

#5 Bobby Lashley has a history with Roman Reigns


Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns have an interesting history. The pair feuded at Extreme Rules 2018. In fact, The All Mighty was one of the few men to defeat the former Big Dog nearly five years ago.

Lashley’s current career path has put him in a stable position on The Street Profits. The trio could face The Bloodline (Roman Reigns, Jimmy Uso and Solo Chikova) en route to the Crown Jewel, eventually setting up a match between the masters of the spear at the Saudi event.

#4 Damien Priest Could Cash In WWE Crown Jewel 2023 Money In The Bank Contract

Damian Priest has repeatedly teased cashing out on his Money in the Bank deal. The Archer of Infamy wanted to cash in against World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins at Fastlane 2023, but Rhea Ripley pulled out due to a knee injury.

With Priest no longer holding the Tag Team Titles (he and Finn Balor dropped them to Jey Uso and Cody Rhodes at Fastlane), Mr. Money in the Bank could challenge Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at WWE Crown Jewel 2023. .

#3 AJ Styles has unfinished business with The Bloodline


AJ Styles was one of Roman Reigns’ most formidable challengers for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in 2016. The pair had back-to-back classics at Payback and Xtreme Rules. On both occasions The Phenomenal One failed to beat the bloodline leader.

Styles rekindled his feud with The Bloodline a few weeks ago on SmackDown. He was originally supposed to partner John Cena at Fastlane, but was sidelined by an attack from Jimmy and Chikova. The former WWE Champion could return to the road for Crown Jewel 2023 to feud with The Tribal Chief.

John Cena is Reigns’ rumored opponent for the #2 Saudi show

John Cena has been feuding with members of the Anoya family for the past 20 years. Cena has defeated Rikishi, Umaga and The Rock. He also put the Usos in their place. However, the 16-time world champion went 2-0 against Roman Reigns in a singles match – which would lead to his rumored feud with The Tribal Chief.

Dave Meltzer reports for WWE not going with Cena vs. Reigns III in a Saudi Premium live event. Fans should take the report with a grain of salt as there is no official confirmation at the time of writing.

The #1 LA Night Crown Jewel was Super Over in 2022

LA Knight is unlike any other Superstar the WWE Universe has seen in a long time. The 40-year-old is a fast-rising talent in the sports entertainment juggernaut. It’s hard to even fathom how far Knight has come in just one year.

He is said to have big plans to declare himself a WWE megastar. Night pinned Jimmy Uso in his and John’s tag team match against The Bloodline at Fastlane 2023. Fans will undoubtedly love to see Knight face Roman Reigns for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship at Crown Jewel 2023.


A storyline could be created where WWE talks about Knight not getting his moment at Crown Jewel 2022, but finally getting his chance this time by winning the richest prize in sports entertainment in Saudi Arabia on November 4th.
