Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns - WrestleMania 34 Main Event For Universal Championship

• Was Title For Title The Original Plan For Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns?

As seen on an episode of SmackDown earlier this month, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar teased a “Title for Title” match against Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

This began speculation that the WWE Championship and the Universal Championship could get merged in the main event of WrestleMania 38.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Title for Title was never the original plan for this feud (and it still might not be):

“I was told no. That they just did it because those two guys had the belt at the time. So it made sense to do it at the time. But, at the time, that was not the direction that they were planning on.

Lesnar and Reigns are going to have a match. I think we’ll have a lot better idea of what’s gonna happen after the Royal Rumble. But, if Seth wins and then Lesnar’s wrestling Roman, I would presume Roman beats him to win a belt back. Because Lesnar’s not going to be around long-term and Roman will be around every week.

And then Rollins, I don’t know what their plans are as far as how long he would go long-term. They could have Big E beat him or they could just keep Seth going. They could have Lashley or…Kevin Owens. I mean there’s a lot of different ways they can go.”
