• Major Update On Plans For The WWE Championship Heading Into WrestleMania 35 (SPOILER)
According to the Dirty Sheets, the WWE Title scene will revolve around Daniel Bryan heading into WrestleMania 35 as the current plan is for Bryan to capture the WWE Title.
The original plan is for Bryan to win the Men’s Royal Rumble 2019 match and then go on to win the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35, but that could change because of The Rock.
As we noted before, WWE wants to do The Rock vs. Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35 if The Rock agrees to return.
If that happens, then The Rock would be booked to win the Men’s Royal Rumble 2019 match and then ‘The Great One’ would go on to challenge Reigns for the Universal Title at WrestleMania 35.
In that scenario, Bryan would then be booked to win the WWE Championship at the Royal Rumble 2019 PPV, as that event takes place in Phoenix, Arizona (and that’s where Bryan & his wife Brie reside).
