Over the last three years, Roman Reigns has established and achieved greatness on another level. The Tribal Chief has defeated Hall of Famers, all-time greats, and the stars of tomorrow. Edge, Goldberg, John Cena, Rey Mysterio, Brock Lesnar, Matt Riddle, Sami Zayn, and even his cousin Jey Uso have all taken trips to “The Island of Relevancy” to acknowledge Roman Reigns.

However, The Head of the Table hasn’t faced The Viper Randy Orton during his record-setting World Championship run. According to various media outlets, WWE was planning Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton in the after WrestleMania 38, presumably at SummerSlam.
Unfortunately, these match didn’t take place due to unfortunate circumstances. The former WWE Champion Randy Orton was put on the shelf with a back injury. He was written off on the May 20th edition of SmackDown last year following vicious assault by The Bloodline. 
Randy Orton was initially expected to return soon, but his injury was much more severe than the higher-ups had anticipated. Orton required a spinal fusion surgery, and a Fightful report suggested that retirement was a real option for him. Hence, Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton never happened, and a returning Brock Lesnar faced the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion in a Last Man Standing Match at SummerSlam 2022.
