With a statement expressed by WWE and reported by various authoritative sources online, including Ringside News, we learn that the Wrestlemania match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will be valid for both world champion belts of the federation, with the statement that in fact it reads like this: "The table has been set up.
Royal Rumble 2022 winner and WWE Champion Brock Lesnar chose to go to battle with Roman Reigns in a Title vs Title match. It will be a WINNER TAKES ALL, in one of the most anticipated rematches at Wrestlemania. Although Lesnar was slated for a titled match against The Head of the Table on Day One, Reigns tested positive for COVID-19 and was declared unable to defend his Universal title in the first major live event of the year.
After being fired by Reigns a few days earlier, however, Paul Heyman once again served as Lesnar's attorney by negotiating for his client and having him added to the WWE Title Day One match that was initially a Fatal 4 Way.
Thanks to Heyman and his maneuvers, The Beast was free to conquer the field and become WWE Champion. During Lesnar's titled defense of Bobby Lashley at the Royal Rumble, Reigns suddenly emerged when the referee went down and using the surprise effect thanks to Heyman, he hit Brock allowing Lashley to become the new WWE champion.
Finally at Elimination Chamber, defending champion Bobby Lashley was removed from the competition for concussion protocol.
This meant that The Beast was able to triumph in the Elimination Chamber match, to claim his WWE title. As a result of this, we will now have a Title vs Title at Wrestlemania!" During the Elimination Chamber live broadcast yesterday afternoon, with the last WWE ppv airing from the Saudi Arabian rings and therefore with a different time zone than the usual American, Brock Lesnar won his umpteenth match titled all inside the men's Elimination Chamber, with the dispute that closed the WWE paid event, with such a twist.
Almost as if it were a spoiler, a few weeks ago, Lesnar himself predicted how at Wrestlemania 38 there would be a champion vs champion match, against Friday Night Smackdown Universal Champion, Roman Reigns, with the winner of the Royal Rumble of 2022 , who had chosen the Tribal Chief as his opponent at the Showcase of the Immortals.
After the victory of Elimination Chamber, therefore, Lesnar has confirmed and formalized that this contest will be in effect a Champion vs Champion match, with the WWE which has not, however, made official whether the match will be valid for both titles or for one only, until a few hours ago.
