WWE star turning face?, Universal Championship match is set for WrestleMania Backlash



Cesaro defeated Seth Rollins this week on WWE Friday Night SmackDown and that win earns him a shot at Universal Champion Roman Reigns at WrestleMania Backlash.

Cesaro won the match, despite the attempt at interference from Jimmy and Jey Uso at ringside. The brothers attacked Rollins because of Rollins refusing to accept help from them. It certainly looks like Rollins might be turning face soon, perhaps to start a feud with Jimmy, Jey, and probably Reigns heading into the summer months and into SummerSlam.

Here are the matches announced so far for the PPV:
