The Beast Brock Lesnar won the WWE Championship at Day 1 event and Roman Reigns holding the Universal Championship. Even though, rumors suggest that these both superstars will face eachother at WrestleMania this year.
According to the reports of Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, despite of Brock Lesnar holding the WWE Title on Monday Night Raw, the current backstage belief that Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns will headline to WrestleMania 38.
“The belief is that Reigns vs. Lesnar, the match that was to headline the WWE’s first Day 1 show at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, is still on top as the main match for the 2022 WrestleMania. The original plan was for Reigns vs. Lesnar to headline for the Universal title. One would think it would be Lesnar defending since what would have made the most sense was Paul Heyman in some form costing Reigns the title.”
Dave Meltzer also stated that the chances of Brock Lesnar winning the Universal Title were very high at Day 1 by Heyman betraying him. So, it seems that Roman Reigns would likely go as challenger for the WrestleMania. However, plans have changed and Lesnar won the WWE Title.
“Instead, on Raw on 1/3 in Greenville, Heyman was back as being the advocate for Lesnar without any kind of dramatic angle. From there they could go a number of different ways, although long-term it makes more sense for Reigns to be long-term champion simply because he’s full-time and Lesnar isn’t,” stated Meltzer.
