    The Grapevine (1/10/22): Current Plans For WWE and Universal Championship Pictures, Triple H's Reaction On NXT Releases

    Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman

    Welcome to the Grapevine! This section of Smark Henry is where we round up all the important founded and unfounded rumors floating around the pro wrestling scene that you may have missed over the past few days. Remember to take everything with a grain of salt!

    Updates on plans for the WWE and Universal Championship

    After the sudden changes to the WWE Championship at Day 1, WWE is reported to still be on track for their planned WrestleMania main event of Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns for a top title. The plan now is for Brock Lesnar to defend the WWE Championship against Roman Reigns on the show, which was apparently the original plan, only with the Universal Championship.

    This means that Seth Rollins, Reigns's presumed challenger for the Universal Championship at Royal Rumble, is set to win the title on the show—likely due to interference from Lesnar. He was also reportedly planned to win the title from Big E at Day 1.

    Given these plans, it's also expected that Rollins would be returning the Universal Championship to Monday Night RAW, and Lesnar would be bringing the WWE Championship back to SmackDown. (Source: Wrestling Observer Radio)

    We say: This was the plan we were looking for as soon as the decision was made to put the WWE Championship haphazardly on Brock Lesnar at Day 1, and if it's true, it's a good thing that they have it all figured out—and most importantly, it's not leading to a world championship unification. Still, though, we call for justice for Big E.

    Triple H's reaction on NXT releases

    Triple H has reportedly felt saddened by the releases of the staff he's hired at the WWE Performance Center. However, there's nothing more to be reported on the matter. He has recently appeared on NBC Nightly News last week for an interview regarding WWE's NIL program. (Source: Wade Keller)

    We say: If Triple H feels bad about the people that were let go, he's certainly not showing it for one reason or another. Hope he's feeling better; we wish him good health.
