The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns, The Queen Charlotte Flair and The Man Becky Lynch are more likely to walk into WrestleMania 38 as champions. Now, we got some details about the opponents for the champions at Grandest Stage of Them All.
It also noted that The Visionary Seth Rollins was fourth superstar likely to walk in as WWE Champion but those plans have changed at Day 1, and those altered the original WrestleMania plans.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter said that the original plans for the ‘big four’ title matches at WrestleMania featured Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair, Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar, Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks and Rollins to defend against the winner for Royal Rumble match.
”The original plans for WrestleMania were for the big four title matches to be Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar for the Universal title, Rollins as WWE champion defending against either Big E, Bobby Lashley or Kevin Owens, but likely whoever wins the Rumble and E was the favorite, Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair,” said Meltzer
But plans for the involved Seth Rollins have changed at Day 1 event after Reigns testing positive for the COVID-19. Now, WWE is seemingly looking for other direction for the Seth Rollins to walk into the WrestleMania as a champion.
The Boss Sasha Banks currently out of action from Smackdown due to a leg injury but she is expected to return before WrestleMania. It was also rumored that if the plan between Flair and Banks seems to be in jeopardy then Bayley could be a viable alternative as well.
