• Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns Match At WrestleMania 34 Is Expected To Be More Hard-Hitting Than Their WrestleMania 31 Match, Reigns’ Raw Promo Not Completely Scripted
According to the Wrestling Observer, WWE officials want the Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns match at WrestleMania 34 to come across as a shoot and Reigns’ promo this week on Raw helped in moving towards that goal.
With that being said, the Lesnar-Reigns main event at WrestleMania 34 is expected to be even more hard-hitting than their previous encounter in the main event of WrestleMania 31, where Lesnar was busted wide open.
Speaking of Reigns’ promo, it wasn’t in the script, but most of the verbiage got approved by Vince McMahon. Reigns received a lot of praise for this promo as it ended up being the best promo in his WWE career till date.
