WWE Royal Rumble 2023 will take place in 10 days’ time at the Alamodome in San Antonio. This year’s premium live event will feature a match for the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship. Roman Reigns will defend his crown against Kevin Owens. Many fans have the question about who will win Roman Reigns vs Kevin Owens match.
Kevin Owens has had a long rivalry with Roman Reigns. The two Superstars have had two matches at the Royal Rumble premium live event in the past. Owens put his Universal Championship on the line against Reigns in 2017, where an interference from Braun Strowman helped the Prizefighter retain his title.

Four years later, Reigns defended his Universal Championship against Owens in a Last Man Standing Match. In a botched ending, the Tribal Chief prevailed over his rival. Two years later, fans are set to witness another Roman Reigns vs Kevin Owens match at Royal Rumble.
Here is the reason why Roman Reigns will be the one who will win match vs Kevin Owens
Roman Reigns will defend his title for the first time in 2023. His last title defense came against Logan Paul at the Crown Jewel show last year. Reigns has been unstoppable in WWE ever since he returned to the company after a brief hiatus in 2020.

The momentum is in favor of the Tribal Chief, and it seems like Sami Zayn can play a big role in the match. Some fans may think that Kevin Owens has a chance of becoming the new champion, but the truth is WWE has already made grand plans for WrestleMania 39 involving Roman Reigns.
Either Cody Rhodes or The Rock will take on the Tribal Chief at the Showcase of Immortals this year. Kevin Owens is rumored to team up with Sami Zayn and battle against The Usos for the Undisputed Tag Team Championships. Hence, fans should expect The Usos and Zayn to play a role in the match at Royal Rumble and help Roman win.
Prediction for WWE Royal Rumble 2023: Roman Reigns beats Kevin Owens to retain WWE Undisputed Universal Championship.
