On the latest episode of Talking Smack, Paul Heyman has revealed his pitch for the main event of WrestleMania 38 next year, which is currently slated for the A&T Stadium in Texas.
Speaking with Big E, Heyman revealed that he wants to see the New Day star challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship at the marquee pay-per-view in 2022:
“Now, solidifying the title reign can get you to a position to a position for WrestleMania next year in the main event for the Universal Championship against Roman Reigns. That’s what that championship should be to you; it should be the designation of you as a great champion so you can main event at WrestleMania against Roman Reigns. The fact that you’re not going to main event this year, sir, should piss you off. Doesn’t it?”
This comes as Big E was one of the favourites to win the men’s Royal Rumble match last weekend. The match was ultimately won by Edge, who will reportedly face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 37 this year.
In response to the comments that Paul Heyman made, Big E had the following to say:
“That doesn’t piss me off. That motivates me. Everything I’ve done in the past, as incredible as that was, it will pale in comparison to what I’m about to do this next year. I’ll see and your boy in the main event of WrestleMania 2022, if he still has got the title. If he still has it, I’ll be there.”
