While speaking to Sports Illustrated, Daniel Cormier predicted that the main even of WrestleMania 34 will not be Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns, but instead he believes Braun Strowman will face Reign instead.
“A lot of people boo him (Roman) because they think he’s pushed too hard, but WWE is smart. Now they’ve spun it–they’ve stuck Roman back with The Shield, and now people cheer him again. They’ll find a way to make him the good guy, and I believe that he will get the championship back in New Orleans, but not from Brock Lesnar. I think Braun Strowman will be carrying the belt by then.”
Brock Lesnar is scheduled to defend his WWE Universal Championship against Braun Strowman and Kane at next month’s Royal Rumble pay-per-view event. It Cormier is correct in his prediction, that means Strowman will leave The Rumble as the new Universal Champion.
