When Vince was still in charge of creative last year, there were no plans for Roman to drop the Title.

According to Fightful Select, people backstage in WWE began defending the idea of Roman retaining the Undisputed Title and continuing his reign past WrestleMania in the last few weeks, which has begun speculation that Vince is making creative decisions again:

“There were people within WWE who began to defend the idea of Roman Reigns winning this past week, and there were some murmurs that he would win last week.

Now, we’ve confirmed that the plan for Reigns to emerge victorious was set and several people were aware of it several weeks ago. We’re not told when the talent were informed.”

The interference finish wasn’t decided until the day of the show.
