Among the few matches that have been confirmed, Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe is one of them.

With everything that happened at WM 34 and Joe's injury keeping him out of action for the last few months, does anyone really feel anything for this match? I am sure Joe will hype it up but after Brock put a beating on Roman, it is hard to see where any of this is heading. What are your thoughts?

Is it a good match to be booking right now? Is it just going to be filler? Will it become a triple threat?

This match is going to be after the Greatest Royal Rumble event. Which means, assuming Reigns wins the Universal Title there, this Joe vs. Reigns match at Backlash could end up being for the title.

So I think it will be interesting.
Would the belt be dropped there though? Seems too random and pointless. Then again... WWE tends to make very strange and questionable decisions.

The rumors are that they made Roman lose at Mania because they have planned him to win the title at The Greatest Royal Rumble instead. I guess they are hoping the Saudis don't boo Roman out of the building like the WrestleMania crowd did.
I'm sorry but that "special" if you even want to call it that is likely going to tank hard and fast. Having Brock lose there instead? Wasteful.

I want to care...but I can't...because I think we all know the
Plank of Wood is going over...especially if he wins the Universal
title at the Greatest Royal Rumble event.

I like Joe...but I'd rather see him on SDL feuding with Styles &
Nakamura for the World title. At least he has great chemistry
with both Styles & Nakamura & actually would have a chance
of winning.

Joe v Roman. I think its interesting. I can see Joe winning the title this year. He probably won't win it at Backlash.

Whens Ambrose coming back? He could screw Joe out of the title.

I guess a more serious approach to this, I feel as though that I am more into whatever promos Samoa Joe cuts than the actual match. Like... Roman's booking for years has made me care less about him and I am frankly tuned out of his stuff as the bell rings. I just expect Drive By, Samoan Drop, many Superman Punches, then a Spear. Even WM, everytime there was a pin attempt on either man, I didn't care and looked away. When the three was counted on Roman, I looked up and was like "Wait what?" And was confused. Not hyped, just confused.

Everything Roman does is boring because WWE has no idea how to book this guy.
Bingo! We have a Winner Winner
:chicken:

Also...part of me is thinking that
this maybe a way for the WWE to
get the Universal title on to SDL
& eventually get the World title on
RAW.

Lets see who Styles is fighting at
Backlash.

Imagine the Universal title...but
recolored blue.

This really is the best point anyone has ever made about him. A lot of people call people like me and Grievous Roman Haters, but they truly miss the point when they do it. Although I do have problems with some things I have heard about Roman off camera, most of us don't really hate him. We just hate the way he's booked. It's sad actually, because if WWE would actually listen to their fans, they could do so much better with him.
