Top Star Not Considered As Roman Reigns WrestleMania 39 Opponent

While speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that for a long time, WWE did not consider Sami Zayn a potential WrestleMania 39 challenger for The Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. However, Sami Zayn’s recent rise in popularity may be too significant to ignore.

“Obviously, the original plan was not Sami Zayn [to face Reigns at WrestleMania], and even as late as a couple of weeks ago, they were trying to find something to not be Sami Zayn. This was not the long term plan of, ‘Roman Reigns/Sami Zayn WrestleMania main event’,” Meltzer added: “Because it clicked, to their credit, they saw that it clicked and it was like, ‘Well let’s make him a star this year, or this season’, and that’s what happened.” (H/T: WrestleTalk)
