Roman Reigns to Square Off Against Major WWE Star in a Title Unification Match?

Disco Inferno, a wrestling veteran, has suggested that Roman Reigns might face CM Punk in a title unification match at WrestleMania 40. This speculation follows the recent return of CM Punk to WWE and the ongoing rivalry between Reigns and Cody Rhodes.

At WrestleMania 39, Reigns successfully defended the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Rhodes. There is widespread belief that these two superstars will clash again at WrestleMania 40. Concurrently, CM Punk, who made a comeback to WWE last month, has been involved in a confrontation with World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, leading many to anticipate a match between them at the next WrestleMania.


On the podcast “Keepin’ It 100,” Disco Inferno proposed a scenario where Punk could defeat Rollins, and Reigns could triumph over Rhodes, setting the stage for a title versus title match. “I would have Roman beating Cody again. I would have Punk beating Seth. And I would think they might wanna unify the title at the next show between the two. I would do title versus title for a unification match, maybe,” he stated [1:02 – 1:44].

Similarly, former WWE superstar Stevie Richards discussed the possibility of a world title unification match involving Punk and Reigns. Richards suggested that Punk could defeat Rollins at the Royal Rumble Premium Live Event, leading to a unification match with Reigns at WrestleMania 40. “He [Punk] beats Rollins for the championship earlier in the Royal Rumble, and he also wins the Royal Rumble. So, think about that. Punk beats Rollins, wins the World Heavyweight Title, then wants to unify it against Reigns,” Richards explained.

These discussions indicate a growing interest in a high-stakes match between Roman Reigns and CM Punk, potentially elevating the significance of WrestleMania 40.
