Roman Reigns is enjoying a career resurgence as the top heel in the WWE.

WWE reportedly may not organize a "Champion vs. Champion" match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38, according to renowned professional wrestling journalist Dave Meltzer.

There has been speculation regarding a "Champion vs. Champion" fight ever since Lesnar won the WWE Championship on Day 1 earlier this month. Following the victory, Lesnar confronted the Universal Champion Reigns on SmackDown, proposing a match between the two. 

However, a clearer picture would be obtained after Royal Rumble, depending on whether Lesnar and Reigns can retain their respective titles.

"I was told no. That they just did it because those two guys had the belt at the time. So it made sense to do it at the time. But, at the time, that was not the direction that they were planning on Lesnar and Reigns are going to have a match," Meltzer was quoted by Ringing News, as saying in an interview with Wrestling Observer Radio. 

"I think we’ll have a lot better idea of what’s gonna happen after the Royal Rumble. But, if Seth wins and then Lesnar’s wrestling Roman, I would presume Roman beats him to win a belt back. Because Lesnar’s not going to be around long-term and Roman will be around every week," the American journalist further added in the same interview.

WrestleMania 38 is going to be a two-night affair this year and is scheduled to take place on April 3 at Texas’ AT&T Stadium.

"And then Rollins, I don’t know what their plans are as far as how long he would go long-term. They could have Big E beat him or they could just keep Seth going. They could have Lashley or… Kevin Owens. I mean there’s a lot of different ways they can go," said Meltzer. 

Reigns recently broke Lesnar's record of being the longest-reigning Universal Championship, according to Wrestling Inc. On Jan. 16, Reigns marked the 504th day of being the Universal Champion, one more than Lesnar's record.

Meanwhile, there is still uncertainty over 13-time WWE Champion John Cena’s participation at the "Shows Of Show."

In recent years, Hollywood has taken up most of Cena’s time, meaning he has hardly featured in WWE over the years. However, he would always show up for WrestleMania, last year being an exception. He sat out of both days of WrestleMania completely.
