After Brock Lesnar winning the WWE Championship at Day 1 event, there were lot of speculations that WWE is planning for Champion vs. Champion match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38. Now, we got an update about the same.
On the recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE has no plans of doing a “Champion vs. Champion” match between Reigns and Lesnar. He further noted that the entire picture would be more clearer after Royal Rumble pay-per-view, depending on whether both of them can retain their titles.
“I was told no. That they just did it because those two guys had the belt at the time. So it made sense to do it at the time. But, at the time, that was not the direction that they were planning on…Lesnar and Reigns are going to have a match. I think we’ll have a lot better idea of what’s gonna happen after the Royal Rumble. But, if Seth wins and then Lesnar’s wrestling Roman, I would presume Roman beats him to win a belt back. Because Lesnar’s not going to be around long-term and Roman will be around every week,” said Dave Meltzer.
“And then Rollins, I don’t know what their plans are as far as how long he would go long-term. They could have Big E beat him or they could just keep Seth going. They could have Lashley or… Kevin Owens. I mean there’s a lot of different ways they can go,” Meltzer added. (H/T: Ringside News)
