WWE reportedly still has plans for Roman Reigns to head into WrestleMania 32 season as the champion, despite Sheamus' recent World Heavyweight Championship win according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
The idea of awarding the Championship to Sheamus was decided hours before Survivor Series went on the air. Vince McMahon reportedly made the call as he feels that fans see Reigns as the corporate pick to be the champion and that is why he is being booed at events.
The long-term plan is for Reigns get screwed by The Authority, and that will cause fans to get behind him and want him to win the title.
