Wrestlemania 38 will also be a two-night event continuing the tradition of the past two years in WWE. Next year, the event will take place on April 2 & 3 at the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas, and just like the catchphrase of the home-state, the event will be going bigger. So it seems like three top superstars of the company will feature in the main event match, instead of two names.
There were a lot of rumors about The Rock vs. Roman Reigns finally happening at the Show of Shows, next year, but it’s almost confirmed that The Rock won’t have a match at WrestleMania 38.
A report from WWFOldSchool has now suggested that WWE Officials are discussing Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar vs. Drew McIntyre in a Triple Threat for the Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 38 – Night 2. The feeling is that this is the biggest match they can book at this point, given that The Rock isn’t available.
WWE wants to keep Brock Lesnar in the Universal Title picture as he’s already in the mix and they also want to add Drew McIntyre to the picture since he’s expected to be the top babyface of the Smackdown brand from Wrestlemania 38 season onward. Plus, Drew also has a history with both men and WWE wants to build him as an unstoppable force on SmackDown, once again.
Last year’s ‘Mania main event of Night 2 also had a Triple Threat Match for the Universal Championship, where Roman Reigns defeated Edge and Daniel Bryan to retain his title. Reigns featuring in the main event of Wrestlemania 38 will make him a record six-time main-eventer at the Biggest Event of the Year.
