Current Plan For WWE WrestleMania 34 Main Event

WWE WrestleMania 34: April 8, 2018 from New Orleans

With SummerSlam in the books, WWE has reportedly settled on a main event for WrestleMania 34 event from New Orleans. On the latest edition of Wrestling Observer, Dave Meltzer stated that the current plan is for Brock Lesnar to face Roman Reigns.

WWE officials were considering John Cena vs. Roman Reigns as one of the marquee matches for WrestleMania, but the decision was made to begin that feud earlier and we’re already seeing the seeds planted for that match to take place in the coming months.

The Lesnar vs. Reigns match was the original plan for WM34 going back several months, but WWE backed off on that scenario for a few months before coming back to it recently.

Lesnar vs. Strowman and Lesnar vs. Reigns were discussed for SummerSlam before WWE ultimately went with the Fatal 4 Way match.

Right now the biggest money match for Lesnar is Braun Strowman, which WWE announced last night as the main event for next month’s No Mercy pay-per-view (9/24).

Lesnar’s current WWE contract expires after WrestleMania, so it will be interesting to see if he signs on for another year or who Lesnar works with in his final program before finishing up with the company once again.
