The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns holds the both WWE and Universal titles and the company recently considered taking one of Roman Reigns’ titles off him during his match against Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle. It would have been a popular decision in Cardiff, but the road mapped out was quite complicated.

While speaking to Louis Dangoor of GiveMeSport, WrestleVotes reported that WWE had a “convoluted” idea for Tribal Chief Roman Reigns to lose one of his titles to Drew McIntyre. It involved Austin Theory cashing in his Money in the Bank contract during the match and Tyson Fury getting involved before The Scottish Warrior Drew McIntyre would pin Austin Theory to win one of the title.
“The only thing they could think of was with Austin Theory. He was going to somehow make it known that he was only cashing in for one of the belts. Therefore, it became a triple threat, and Tyson Fury stopped him like he did, and Drew would then would take one of the titles,” WrestleVotes said. [H/T: GiveMeSport]
WrestleVotes also further mentioned that the title change did not happen because of how strange the idea sounded, but it was heavily considered before the Clash at the Castle show.
“They wanted to make the titles separate in the moment, because they do want to titles again, but they’re struggling to figure out how. I do know that they were talking up until maybe night of or day over here,” WrestleVotes continued.
