Roman Reigns Vs. Brock Lesnar At WWE WrestleMania 38 Reportedly Won't Be Title Vs Title Match
The two are still expected to meet at 'Mania
Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar is still expected to be the main event of WWE WrestleMania 38, despite the deviation from planned storylines at WWE Day 1, but a new report indicates the match will not be a Title vs. Title bout.
As noted, Lesnar had been due to challenge Reigns for the Universal Championship at WWE Day 1; a match that was said to have heavy implications for their anticipated showdown at WrestleMania in April.
However, with Reigns returning a positive COVID-19 result and being pulled from the show, Lesnar was added to the WWE Title Match at Day 1 instead, defeating Champion Big E, Bobby Lashley, Seth Rollins and Kevin Owens to win the Championship.
Speculation has now turned to what this means for the WrestleMania 38 main event scene and PWInsider is reporting that the word coming out of Day 1 was that Lesnar and Reigns are still expected to collide once again at this year's 'Showcase Of The Immortals'.
However Bryan Alvarez of Wrestling Observer Live notes that, while he has heard the same, the bout is not expected to be any form of Title Unification Match.
While it is possible Reigns and Lesnar could collide with only one of the Titles on the line, it is implied that either the Beast or The Tribal Chief could drop their respective Championship ahead of WrestleMania.
Alvarez said: "“With [Brock[ going to Raw for the time being and feuding with Lashley, the WrestleMania main event at this point appears to still be Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns. I do not know what this means but as of 20 minutes ago or so, it was not going to be a title vs. title match.
"What that means, I don’t know. It could mean that Brock will not be champion by the time 'Mania rolls around. It could mean that they’re just gonna do champion vs. champion like Survivor Series but each belt is not on the line.
"I don’t know what it means but as of 20 minutes ago, as of today, they are not doing like a title vs. title unification match at WrestleMania. Everything could change."
