WrestleMania 37 Main Event Plan Possibly Changed (Exclusive)

Roman Reigns defeats Drew McIntyre At WrestleMania 35

• WrestleMania 37 Main Event Plan Possibly Changed (Exclusive)

As we have noted before here on WWFOldSchool.com, WWE officials had plans to book Big E to win the Men’s Royal Rumble 2021 match, and have him face Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 37.

However, that plan might have changed.

We have been told that Drew McIntyre confronting Roman Reigns on last week’s SmackDown could lead to a match with “The Tribal Chief” for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 37.

While both of them are currently on different brands, that won’t be a problem for a match between them as McIntyre could get booked to win the Royal Rumble again, or he could just get “traded” to SmackDown.

WWE officials are trying to avoid making the same mistake with Big E that they made with Reigns, which is giving him a mega push too early in his singles run.

The Shield broke up in mid-2014 and Reigns went on to main event WrestleMania in 2015 as a babyface. On the other hand, Big E’s singles run began in mid-2020 and he’s currently involved in mid-card feuds.

If Reigns vs. McIntyre for the Universal Championship takes place at WrestleMania 37, there will be no issues for a Randy Orton vs. Edge match for the WWE Championship in the co-main event of WrestleMania 37.

Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre has happened at WrestleMania before, back in 2019 at WrestleMania 35. Reigns defeated McIntyre on that night.
