Roman Reigns will headline WWE WrestleMania Backlash



WWE has yet to announce an opponent, but Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is set to headline WrestleMania Backlash.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that there's been speculation online that perhaps Reigns would not be on the show since they have not set up an opponent for him but that is not the case and he will be there.

Meltzer stated, "He is, in fact, in the main event. I presume they’ll shoot the angle on Friday. I don’t know that as a fact, I would presume it. But he is in the main event on the WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view."

Reigns holds the Undisputed and WWE Championship after defeating Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania in Dallas. Days later on SmackDown, Reigns and The Usos attacked Shinsuke Nakamura but there has been no hint as to who he will face at the pay-per-view.
