For the past few years, you can pretty much have said “who is Roman Reigns facing in the main event on WrestleMania?”
Now though, it’s not that simple, and that’s largely due to a certain Miss Rousey ripping through the roster and making an even bigger name for herself in WWE.
Dave Meltzer has noted in his latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Ronda vs Charlotte Flair had been heavily discussed, but that the recent Becky Lynch story line may have put them off the idea.
“Right now, there is no WrestleMania main event locked in. Rousey vs. Charlotte was heavily talked about a few months back and it’s not impossible, but Charlotte has been hurt by how the Lynch angle has played out.
“But obviously in this world where the fan reactions don’t really matter, if that’s what Vince really wants, that’s what it’ll be. Reigns would be the main event if not Rousey and there’s no direction for him in stone.
“There is a direction for how the Ambrose story will eventually play out (I don’t know what it is, just know there is a destination they are heading for, Ambrose was going to turn heel before this past WrestleMania and feud with Rollins before he got hurt but that doesn’t mean that’s where this one is going) but on the other side, the stuff with Strowman, McIntyre and Ziggler is stuff Vince and the writers are coming up with weekly with no end game.
“We’re not even sure if the end of Raw was to set up Strowman vs. McIntyre now, or it’ll be one of those heels break up and the next week they’re back together things that they do. It was something put together for this show during the week to give people an ending to talk about without much in the way of where it goes, although they are very much into protecting McIntyre and want him to be one of the top singles guys.”
Meltzer also noted that the teased Batista vs Triple H match may also main event the show, which would be the latest in WWE‘s decision to give part-timers the main spot.
