Riddle has issued a challenge to Roman Reigns for an Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match.

Appearing on Miz TV on this week's Raw episode, Riddle vowed to take the Universal title from Reigns at an unspecified future date. 

It was reported last month that Reigns vs. Riddle for the Universal title was planned for Money in the Bank on July 2, but WWE has yet to officially announce the bout. 

Dave Meltzer mentioned Riddle, Randy Orton, and Drew McIntyre as potential planned challengers for Reigns this summer, with Riddle tentatively scheduled for Money in the Bank, Orton possibly slated for SummerSlam on July 30, and McIntyre the potential challenger for Clash at the Castle on September 3. 

McIntyre issued a challenge to Reigns for Clash at the Castle on last week's SmackDown, but that match has yet to be confirmed. 

Clash at the Castle and SummerSlam are stadium shows, while Money in the Bank was originally slated as a stadium event before it was moved to the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
