• Vince McMahon Keen On Having A Roman Reigns Moment At WrestleMania 35
According to the Dirty Sheets, WWE officials are still waiting for a WrestleMania 35 confirmation from Brock Lesnar as there’s still a chance that Lesnar competes at UFC 235 in March, but they are pretty sure that Lesnar will work WrestleMania 35.
However, if by any chance Lesnar doesn’t commit to working WrestleMania 35, then Braun Strowman will defeat Lesnar at Royal Rumble 2019 to finally win the Universal Championship and then defend the Title against Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 35.
Current plan for WrestleMania 35 is for Seth Rollins to defeat Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. There were discussions of choosing someone else to defeat Lesnar instead of Rollins after TLC 2018 (where the fans chanted “boring” at his match) and names like AJ Styles and “The Demon” Finn Balor came up, but Dirty Sheets’ sources believe that WWE will stick with the plan with Rollins (given Lesnar works WrestleMania 35) as Vince McMahon is keen on having a Roman Reigns moment at WrestleMania 35.
For those who missed our previous article about this, Vince McMahon wants “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns to make an appearance at WrestleMania 35 and congratulate his Shield brother Seth Rollins, after Rollins defeats Lesnar to capture the Universal Championship.
This would be similar to the moment that Chris Benoit & Eddie Guerrero had after the WrestleMania 20 main event where then WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero came out to congratulate Benoit on winning the World Heavyweight Championship. You can watch it below:
Speaking of Reigns, Seth Rollins recently gave an updated on Reigns’ health and return status during a recent interview with FOX 2 News.
Below is what Rollins said:
“Roman is doing great. He obviously spent the holidays home with his family and he’s doing really good. He’s in a good position. He’s prime to make a comeback, hopefully, sometime sooner rather than later. But at the end of the day, he’s focusing on getting healthy right now. I will say that he’s doing good.”
