Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania
What is WrestleMania all about this year? Well, one facet is still yet to be decided. Former AEW superstar Cody Rhodes may very well be involved with the event in a big-time match with Seth Rollins. However, that is not official as of this writing. One big-time official match is Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns. The two are the champions of their respective shows on USA and FOX. However, one will walk out with both world titles on Sunday evening.
It is a long-time coming and Lesnar and Reigns have lots of history. The two have had multiple world title matches at WrestleMania before, also involving Rollins. However, this is for all the marbles as both look to be crowned the Undisputed Champion of the WWE.
The other major event is the return of Stone Cold Steve Austin. Yes, SCSA returns at the event for a segment with Kevin Owens on The KO Show. While it’s not a match, it is a huge deal for Austin to appear on the program and interact with Owens who adopted his finishing move.
It is a star-studded card that fans are extremely excited about. Only time will tell how it will all play out for everyone involved.
