We are back with another exciting WWE News Roundup. A legendary superstar has said he would love to face Roman Reigns.

Details regarding Bray Wyatt's specific request from several years ago have been revealed. Meanwhile, a popular star spoke about whether or not the "Becky Lynch" chants ever bother her.

Seth Rollins gave his take on scripted promos not too long ago. Additionally, Bobby Lashley made a bold statement regarding his future with MVP.

With that in mind, let's dive straight into the latest WWE News Roundup.

It's no secret that Roman Reigns' run as WWE's top villain has been newsworthy, and Goldberg is one of many names from the industry to have praised him lately.

Goldberg and Reigns were supposed to face each other at last year's WrestleMania event. However, the pandemic led to a change of plans when the latter dropped out of the bout. Braun Strowman replaced Reigns to face the veteran as a result.

During a recent appearance on The Bump, Goldberg called Roman Reigns' work in Vince McMahon's promotion "freaking unbelievable" and gave credit to Paul Heyman. The WCW icon still wants to face the current Universal Champion at some point down the road.

Although Goldberg isn't a contender for the Universal title at the moment, he is set to face Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at SummerSlam.

Roman Reigns will fight John Cena during the same pay-per-view on August 21.

Welcome to the last-minute rumors for WWE SummerSlam. The jam-packed show will emanate from Allegiant Stadium in the Las Vegas suburb of Paradise, Nevada, on August 21st, 2021.

SummerSlam will feature huge matches such as Roman Reigns vs. John Cena and Goldberg vs. Bobby Lashley. There are rumors that Becky Lynch will also be making an appearance after 15 months of absence. Speaking of absences, we will discuss why a former Royal Rumble winner is not working SummerSlam.

This article will also take a look at WWE's plan for Goldberg vs Bobby Lashley and what the future will hold for John Cena if he becomes the Universal Champion:

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has revealed that there is a chance that John Cena will become a 17-time World Champion this Saturday at SummerSlam. Even if Cena wins the title, his title run will not be long.

Roman Reigns will likely regain the Universal Championship as he will be focusing on future programs against The Rock and Brock Lesnar. Despite there being no plans for Brock Lesnar to show up at SummerSlam, Meltzer has said that WWE is protecting Reigns, for now, to have him feud with Brock Lesnar down the line.

Roman Reigns vs. The Rock is heavily proposed as the main event of WrestleMania next year. A loss to John Cena could hurt his momentum, so it is unlikely that WWE will take that chance and have Cena win the Universal Championship.
