Latest on the Universal Title Match at WrestleMania 36

The Road to WrestleMania has begun and the speculations about big matches have ensued as a result. The match for the WWE Championship will see Drew McIntyre try and overcome the Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar.

The Universal Championship, on the other hand, is yet to be booked. Before WrestleMania, however, comes Super Showdown where Bray Wyatt will defend his title against the returning Goldberg.

Dave Meltzer reports on Wrestling Observer Radio that as of last week, the plan for the Universal Title match at WrestleMania is Roman Reigns going up against the Fiend Bray Wyatt. This is what Vince McMahon reportedly has in mind for the Show of Shows but plans could change.

However, Meltzer also notes that there’s a chance of WWE pulling off a huge shocker at Super Showdown. Meltzer states that WWE will have to protect Goldberg because he holds a marquee value to it.

He also goes on to note that for WrestleMania, Roman Reigns vs Goldberg could have much more fan interest than Reigns vs Wyatt. Therefore, for Super Showdown, things might not be as easy to predict as it may seem.

    I don’t expect The Fiend to be losing the Universal Championship to either Goldberg or Roman Reigns. I believe The Fiend will be Universal Championship for long while.

  • Sparti Love

    At least Reigns vs Goldberg should be a quick match during the 10hr WrestleMania event

  • Luke

    Lol why? Bray is doing teh best promo work of his career with Firefly Funhouse and The Fiend has an incredible entrance and at least interesting matches.

  • Luke

    The main event is Drew vs Brock is it not?

  • Rinn13

    Wouldn’t that be great, guys? Yet ANOTHER WM main evented by either Lesnar or Reigns?

  • ROB-1.

    Please enough of the fiend, just have Bray Wyatt as himself.

  • Kayfabe_Is_Dead

    Roman Reigns is more over being top face without the belt. Don’t they see this?

  • Mike the Ike

    I’m fine with Reigns getting the match at Mania since Vince refuses to created new stars. But then Reigns has to get decimated and the match has to have a gruesome end like when Wyatt when the title from Rollins and then just stood over his unconscious body.

    There is a huge problem with booking Fiend vs Goldberg as you really cannot have either lose, at least not via normal means. The reality is, the only way this can end is Goldberg winning via DQ or a non finish.
    You cannot have someone like Goldberg come back and lose, but they can also not have him win the title.

    As for Reigns vs Fiend … please, no.
    I just do not see him selling the Fiend gimmick like he should, and if they give him the title, it will lose Reigns any goodwill he got from haters since he returned from his cancer scare.
