WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Universal Champion Roman Reigns are set to collide once again in the main event of WrestleMania 38 this year. WWE have booked the match as a winner take all title unification bout for night two of the show of shows.

Lesnar recaptured the WWE title in the main event of Elimination Chamber 2022 when he bested four other competitors: AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, Riddle, and Austin Theory. Defending champion Bobby Lashley was removed in the early moments of the match.

Paul Heyman recently talked about the drawing power of Lesnar and Reigns during and interview with The Zaslow Show. The Special Counsel compared the champions to the likes of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and The Undertaker when it comes to having the ‘It’ factor.

“I don’t know how you could be in a room with Mark, with The Undertaker and not understand this guy is very, very special. I don’t understand how you could walk into a room with Steve Austin and not say to yourself, ‘woah, there’s something very different about this athlete.’ Same way with Brock Lesnar, same way with Roman Reigns. These are extraordinary human beings with the, ‘it factor,’ that everybody always talks about.”

Who will come out as the undisputed face of the WWE? Will the Beast Incarnate acknowledge the Head of the Table or will Reigns be finally pinned in nearly two years? We will have to wait and see.
