The Wrestling Observer claim Raw Executive Director Paul Heyman is a big fan of Roode and wants him to be pushed more.

The former NXT champion has been a forgotten man since failing to win the United States Championship at WrestleMania 34.

Noam Dar takes on Travis Banks at NXT UK TakeOver in Cardiff on Saturday.

But he appears to have former world champion Reigns in his sights.

“I would like to see Roman Reigns come down to NXT UK for a challenge. I can beat him and be the biggest dog in the WWE Universe.

“And that is d-u-g. Dug, not dog. Get rid of that Americanism real quick.”

WWE to scrap the Wildcard Rule

The Wildcard Rule has been a controversial one since being implemented in the wake of WrestleMania 35.

It effectively ended the brand split, allowing superstars from SmackDown Live and Raw to appear on each show.

But the Wrestling Observer say WWE are talking about bringing back permanent rosters again.

It is a move that would be welcomed by most WWE fans.
