Paul Heyman recently spoke with Digital Spy to hype up WWE’s biggest pay-per-view of the year, WrestleMania. During the interview, the advocate said that Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns is definitely the main event of the show. (h/t to Ring Side News)
Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns is the main event of this year’s WrestleMania because there’s more interest in this match than there is in any other. Period. Exclamation point. That’s the match that sells this show.
All these other matches are very intriguing. Each one of the mis worthy of insight and preview and speculation. But only one can be the true main event. Only one can be the match that’s listed in the history books as: This was the most important. This drew the attention, this is what we banked on. And on Sunday, April 8th, 2018, WrestleMania 34, we are banking on Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns in the main event.
That’s no disrespect to anyone else who plays a vital role on this show. It really isn’t. AJ Styles versus [Shinsuke] Nakamura is a fascinating match-up. Ronda Rousey in her debut teaming with a fellow Olympain Kurt Angle against the First Couple of the WWE, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Fascinating match-up on so many different levels.
John Cena having called out The Undertaker is of a historic nature that can’t be oversold. And again… what a fantastic thing to speculate about. But there’s only one true main event. And that main event happens to be Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns.
If someone else in this time period before WrestleMania can create such interest that the show’s fortune rides on them, then they will replace Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar in the main event of WrestleMania. But until that happens, I think we have enough on our side of the argument to continue the public interest and the public intrigue in this match.
Paul Heyman believes that Lesnar vs Reigns is the deserving main event of WrestleMania, and it’s hard to disagree with that. This match has been three years in the making, and Roman looks to add to his streak of main event Mania matches.
Officially, it hasn’t been confirmed if it will be the final match of the night, but we can all assume that it will end the show.
