Update On WWE’s Plan Following Title Unification

Update On WWE’s Plan Following Title Unification WWE

WWE made the “Biggest WrestleMania match of all-time” even bigger on Friday, when it was announced that the match between WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38 would now be a Unification match.

Fans were wondering if this would mean the end for WWE’s brand split, or if the shows would continue with only one floating world champion.

However, per Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Radio, neither scenario will be the case, as WWE will move forward with two world champions even following the unification.

He said:

“The deal here is that it is a unification match and from what I am told, it’s the same idea as the last time they unified the titles. Remember like 2o years ago, 18 years ago when they did, and then like a week later they just handed a belt to Triple H?

“I was told that it is not feasible in the modern environment to not have each brand, given the two networks, have a champion. So this will be a unification match, and then they will, not forget about it, but there will be two champions.”

Technically the match could still not take place, as Lesnar is set to defend his belt in Madison Square Garden this weekend.

The WWE Championship has already changed hands three times in 2022. For a full list of every title change of the year in WWE, click here.
