WWE Survivor Series is the one time of the year when the champions from RAW and the champions from SmackDown lock horns in head-to-head competition. This tradition started in 2017 when fans witnessed an epic clash between Brock Lesnar and AJ Styles. Since that match, there have been several memorable encounters at WWE Survivor Series.
Last year, Universal Champion Roman Reigns defeated the then WWE Champion Big E in the grand bout. A few months after the big match, Roman Reigns fought Brock Lesnar in an Undisputed Universal Championship match at WrestleMania 38. Roman won the match and captured both the world titles of the company.
Interestingly though, Roman Reigns has defended his Undisputed Universal Championship only once since WrestleMania 38. That title defense took place against Riddle on a recent episode of SmackDown. As expected, Roman retained the belts and is now set for a rematch against Brock Lesnar in a Last Man Standing match at SummerSlam.
In case Roman retains the titles again and manages to do so until November this year, then the Universal Champion vs WWE Champion match will get very interesting. A Twitter user reminded the fans about this scenario and wrote:
“Your reminder that if Roman Reigns holds onto the Universal Title and the WWE Title, he gotta face himself at Survivor Series.”

Will Theory dethrone Roman Reigns before WWE Survivor Series?
Many fans have opined that WWE should think about splitting up the Universal Championship and the WWE Championship if Roman Reigns does not wrestle regularly. With Theory winning the lucrative Money in the Bank contract last Saturday, he could be the one to dethrone Roman and take one of the two titles from him.
Since Theory is a RAW Superstar, he could bag the WWE Championship. Then, at Survivor Series, fans could witness an epic rematch between Theory and Roman in the main event.
