As we noted yesterday, WWE is now committing to a Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns singles match main event at WrestleMania 34, as the company feels confident in the match despite any past issues with Brock Lesnar’s contract status and/or Roman Reigns’ recent steroid allegations. According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, everything is said to be “good” on both the Lesnar and Reigns fronts, and the company is proceeding with the Universal Title match in New Orleans.
The backup plan in case something happened with either Reigns or Lesnar was to have Braun Strowman featured in the WrestleMania main event, but since that is no longer happening, WWE is free to move forward with Strowman’s fallback plan of working with The Bar.
“The idea was that they didn’t want to commit to a Strowman match, nor a Sheamus and Cesaro match, because the fallback for Strowman, if he wasn’t in the main event, was Sheamus and Cesaro,” said Meltzer. “Whether it was going to be a match or an angle, and it was actually going to be an angle at first, that was how it was all laid out.”
With regards to the match between Braun Strowman and The Bar, as of now, WWE has yet to decide whether or not the match will be a Handicap Match featuring Strowman facing The Bar by himself, or if The Monster Among Men will get a partner making it a true tag team title match. Vince reportedly has not decided on the final match plan, and it remains to be seen how the final bout will take shape.
