Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns will once again meet on The Grandest Stage of Them All, as The Beast Incarnate defends his Universal Title against The Big Dog at WrestleMania 34.
The second singles match between two of WWE’s most dangerous gladiators was set in motion when Reigns defeated John Cena, Braun Strowman, Elias, Seth Rollins, Intercontinental Champion The Miz and Finn Bálor in the first-ever Seven-Man Elimination Chamber Match.
Of course, this return bout has been years in the making; Reigns and Lesnar first collided at WrestleMania 31 in a grueling brawl that never reached a decisive end. Seth Rollins famously cashed in his Money in the Bank contract in the middle of the match, pinning Reigns to claim Brock’s WWE World Heavyweight Title in a shocking twist.
The two rivals have met again in multi-man matches, but have never squared off one-on-one since that fateful night.
Reigns — who beat Triple H at WrestleMania 32 to win the WWE World Heavyweight Title — now has a second opportunity to show that he can topple Brock and become champion on WWE’s biggest stage.
Lesnar — who hasn’t suffered a loss since 2016 — has another opportunity to put Reigns down with the world watching and prove that WWE is, in fact, his yard.
This match has been the biggest rumour all year and I know Reigns is not everyone’s favourite but the truth is Brock Lesnar just pisses us off here, he can’t even be classified as a part – time wrestler, he’s not even around long enough for that.
We can only hope that we can say that after WrestleMania, we have seen the last of Brock Lesnar, my prediction, Roman Reigns to win…
Although if they pull a stunt like the first time round, we here at the office are going to be equally pissed off – no one wants another surprise cash in or interference from anyone else, let’s just leave it one on one and let’s have Reigns win the championship.
