Roman Reigns is already booking the WrestleMania 36 main event.
We're still over a year away from WrestleMania 36 in Tampa, Florida, but that hasn't stopped Roman Reigns from calling his shot. Speaking to WFF, Reigns was asked about his plans for The Biggest Event of the Year in 2020.
"I'd like to close the show and I'd like to wrestle Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship. I'd like to get my rematch one year from now," stated Reigns.
Rollins currently scheduled to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title at WrestleMania 35 in less than four weeks. Reigns is not currently booked for this year's WrestleMania. Reigns relinquished the Universal Title on the Oct. 22 edition of Raw following his announcement that his leukemia had returned. He wrestled his first match in nearly five months this past Sunday at WWE Fastlane, teaming with Rollins & Dean Ambrose to defeat Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley, & Baron Corbin.
Elsewhere in the interview, Reigns was asked about being the face of WWE now that John Cena is busy with his Hollywood career.
"There's two ways to look at this. I've always looked at myself as the face of WWE, whether John is there or not. I feel that I'm far more attractive and that I have a better looking face than John," joked Reigns. "I also think that there's a lot of faces in WWE. That's what makes our product and brand so compelling. We're not the same. We're a huge melting pot, all from different places across the globe and we've all come together off one natural bond and that's storytelling. The physicality of storytelling within a ring. On that canvas is where we paint our pictures. I think it's important, not only for the people at the top of WWE, but for every performer to look at themselves as the face of WWE. If everyone looks at themselves as the face of WWE, the WWE can't go wrong."
Reigns continued, "With a huge name like John Cena no longer being a full-time performer, I think there's as much, if not more, pressure on me to do my job at a high level. But I also think it's across the locker room. I guarantee you Seth Rollins feels the exact same way. That pressure to perform and keep our product at a premium."
