“Rumors came out almost immediately following WrestleMania 33 that the plan for WrestleMania 34 was Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar, in a rematch from Mania 31 — this time, without Seth Rollins cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase and taking the title for himself. In between, thanks to Braun Strowman’s rise and popularity and general awesomeness, we were likely to get Strowman vs. Lesnar at SummerSlam. It appears as if all of these plans have now been changed, and WWE is going to go in a number of different directions for both SummerSlam and Mania 34.
Dave Meltzer, in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, discussed how it now appears that the plan for Mania is Reigns vs. John Cena — hence the John Cena, Free Agent thing they’re promoting his return with. To get there, Reigns is going to have to face Lesnar sooner, and that would happen at SummerSlam, which is why Reigns challenged the winner of Lesnar vs. Joe on a recent episode of RAW.
These plans could still change…”
