Update regarding the Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar “unification” match
As previously noted, WWE is now billing Universal Champion Roman Reigns vs. WWE Champion Brock Lesnar as a title for title “unification” match at Wrestlemania 38.
However, it could end up being a scenario where WWE doesn’t actually merge the titles. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline.com noted the following in regards to what he was told about the matter…
“The deal here is that it is a unification match and from what I am told, it’s the same idea as the last time they unified the titles. Remember like 20 years ago, 18 years ago when they did, and then like a week later they just handed a belt to Triple H?”
“I was told that it is not feasible in the modern environment to not have each brand, given the two networks, have a champion. So this will be a unification match, and then they will, not forget about it, but there will be two champions.” (quotes courtesy of WrestleTalk.com)
