WrestleMania main events are set up much ahead of time, every year. The creative team makes a selection of a handful number of superstars around whom the storylines for the biggest event generally revolve around.
At this point, a certain match has been set to headline the 36th edition of the show. But the plans can always change depending on the situation, moving forward.
A triple threat match was firstly planned for the ‘show of shows’, as per the recent reports.
According to The Dirty Sheets, WWE officials originally arranged Brock Lesnar (c) vs. The Rock vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 36.
This might have been done after The Rock returned to the WWE during the FOX premiere of SmackDown.
The officials were hopeful that The Rock would agree to do the match as well as he could be medically cleared to compete.
But they later found out that The Rock couldn’t get cleared. So they replaced The Great One with Seth Rollins.
The plan was that Rollins would have been drafted to SmackDown just to participate in this match.
But he is the face of the Monday Night Raw brand which is why the shift may have not happened. Rather, Brock Lesnar was switched to the red brand.
Later, another plan was canceled before the current WrestleMania main event was set featuring The Fiend, (courtesy wwfoldschool.com)
“Soon after this, plans for Lesnar vs. Reigns vs. Rollins (which was the impromptu main event of WrestleMania 31 in 2015) got dropped as well and talks about The Fiend main eventing WrestleMania 36 began.
The current plan is for “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt (c) vs. “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship to main event WrestleMania 36.”
As of now, the plan is to host this marquee match at WrestleMania from SmackDown featuring the two prime figures of the brand.
If this one ends up being the actual plan, then “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt’s would main-event the biggest stage for the first time. As for Roman Reigns, it will be the 5th WrestleMania main event of his career.
