WWE creative is trying new ideas in 2021 and one of those new angles will be Adam Pearce.
During this weeks SmackDown it was announced that WWE Official Adam Pearce will challenge the “Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at the 2021 Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
While Adam Pearce is a highly regarded in-ring worker, WWE is discussing replacing Pearce with a Mystery Opponent at the Royal Rumble as a last minute change.
Many WWE fans were disappointed in this announcement and do not understand the logic behind booking this match. The fact is WWE is looking at hitting WWE fans with more swerve surprises in 2021 and make storylines more exciting.
Kevin Owens or Shinsuke Nakamura has been brought up as the swerve opponents for Roman Reigns and current plans call for WWE hold onto the secret until right before the match begins.
It’s a good thing to see WWE pushing new ideas in 2021 and we hope the other “surprise angles” they are planning make it past the production stage and onto your screens. Stay tuned to SW for the latest updates.
