The next chapter of their Rivalry was mixed as not all parts were memorable. It started with the SummerSlam match from 2017 where It was a fatal four way and there Brock Lesnar beat Roman Reigns to retain the title and again at WrestleMania 34 it was Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns but this time the build was terrible and no one was invested in it and the match was not good either so this part of their feud was one I’d the worst in this decade.
