It was reported by F4Wonline.com that WWE officials wanted to do everything possible to make sure Reigns, Lesnar and Paul Heyman are able to work Day 1 because whatever they have planned for the pay-per-view is supposed to lead to WrestleMania 38 in some form.
Lesnar vs. Reigns is expected to headline Saturday’s big event. We’ve noted how the Lesnar vs. Reigns feud was planned to be a series of matches that would lead to WrestleMania 38, and a big payoff angle is reportedly planned for Saturday.
