WWE has a lot of plans for WrestleMania 39, but that doesn’t mean they can’t change. With the Bloodline’s storyline captivating the entire WWE Universe, it only makes sense that Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes will main event night two of WrestleMania 39, but the company had to shift around plans for the Usos.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that WWE originally had a plan for The Usos vs Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn to main event night one of WrestleMania 39. Of course, those plans changed, and now Charlotte Flair vs Rhea Ripley is expected to close out the show.

The newsletter further noted that WWE changing this match was due to “political” reasons. It’s not clear if the Usos’ match is still on for night one, but that was the initial plan.

“When we had asked about Usos vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn headlining night one, since at the time Zayn was the company’s hottest babyface character, we were told that there were political reasons in play to where Flair vs. Ripley would most likely get that spot.

“It is not clear that the Usos match will be on night one, but when the original idea was to create a second world title, with Rollins, Drew McIntyre or Rhodes (Rhodes would be in this if The Rock was facing Reigns) as the three people considered for it, that was to be the night one main event, but it became the women’s match when that idea fell by the wayside. At that point in time, the Usos title defense was scheduled for night one.”

Jey Uso just reunited with Jimmy Uso and the Bloodline. That sparked a new chapter in their feud with Sami Zayn, someone they used to consider an Honorary Uce. It seems that fans should expect some big momentum in their storyline to book this contest for the showcase of the immortals.

We will have to see how this storyline progresses. Obviously, the Bloodline have a ton of attention right now, and that is not likely to change. Only time will tell how Jimmy and Jey Uso’s road to WrestleMania 39 goes from here, but we are certainly going to pay close attention.

What’s your take on this WrestleMania change? Would you have booked a different night one main event? Sound off in the comments!
