Coming off last night’s WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view, two of WrestleMania’s greatest matches appear to be a done deal.
Hours before the show, Dave Meltzer reported that it will be Ronda Rousey challenging Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania and apparently the match between Lynch and Becky Lynch will take place next year at WrestleMania 39.
It is clear that Brock Lesnar will challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship. Last night, Paul Heyman turned on Lesnar and assisted Reigns in his attack that led to Lesnar losing the WWE Championship to Bobby Lashley.
However, there is still no clear direction for the WWE Championship at Mania. In regards to Brock Lesnar winning the Royal Rumble match, wrestlingVotes reported: “Lesnar had to be the winner here. They told me they legitimately have no idea what the WWE title match will be at Mania right now. Avoid the old locker.”
Big E seemed like the logical choice to face Lashley at Mania, but that seems out of the question now that Big E is back on the SmackDown roster. Seth Rollins appears to be another possibility as he was protected and not pinned during his match with Roman Reigns. There are two months to go between now and Mania, so it could be a few weeks before we find out who Lashley will be fighting at Mania.
Lesnar had to be the winner here. They told me they legitimately have no idea what the WWE title match will be at Mania right now. Avoid the ol’ locker.
