Original WrestleMania 39 Main Event Plans Revealed

Roman Reigns & Cody Rhodes on WWE SmackDown

The earliest plans for the main event of WrestleMania 39 night two have been revealed.

With Roman Reigns defending the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Cody Rhodes on night two, this is all but certain to be the last match of the two night extravaganza. However, the main event itself and which title would be on the line could have been changed if an electrifying performer was able to commit a match.

WrestleMania 39 Main Event Plans Have Changed Since November

In an update in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the report states that if The Rock were to face Roman Reigns at WrestleMania, this would have been for a world championship. If this dream match were to happen, the main event of night one would have seen Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins face off in a triple threat match. The winner would have received the prize of a second world title, indicating that a split was planned.

The report also says that Reigns vs. Rhodes was the backup plan should The Rock decline a match at WrestleMania 39, indicating that the current main event has been in place for a number of months.

While both Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre will not be fighting for a world championship at WWE’s biggest show of the year, both men are featured in high profile matches at the event. Rollins will face-off against Logan Paul in a match that has been confirmed to take place on night one.

McIntyre will face Gunther for the Intercontinental Championship in a triple threat match, also involving McIntyre’s long time friend and rival Sheamus. With Gunther causing a disqualification in the number one contenders match on the March 17th episode of SmackDown, Adam Pearce would appear on the big screen to make the title match a 3-way.

This will also be the first time that the Intercontinental title has been defended at WrestleMania since 2021, where Apollo Crews defeated Big E to win the gold in a Nigerian Drum Fight.
