The news seemed apparent based on the preview for the February 25 episode of WWE SmackDown.
As previously announced, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar will face Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a “Winner Take All” match at WrestleMania 38. Lesnar earned the right to challenge for a world title by winning the Royal Rumble, and he chose to face Reigns. “The Beast Incarnate” subsequently won the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber premium live event.
Just a few days after this monumental victory, the two champions will sign the contract for their WrestleMania bout Friday night on WWE SmackDown.
The official preview, courtesy of the company’s website, is as follows:
SmackDown preview, Feb. 25, 2022: Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns to sign contract prior to their Winner Take All Championship Unification at WrestleMania
After Brock Lesnar emerged victorious inside the Elimination Chamber with a dominant display to claim the WWE Title, the 2022 Royal Rumble winner will now turn his attention to The Grandest Stage of them All and the history-making Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
With Reigns and Lesnar set to go to war in a Title vs. Title Winner Take All Match at WrestleMania, what will happen when The Beast and The Head of the Table come face-to-face for a contract signing? Find out this Friday at 8/7 C on SmackDown.
This wording makes it fairly apparent that the winner of Reigns vs. Lesnar will be the lone world champion. The company has featured two world titles since the introduction of the Universal Championship in 2016.
Updated: WWE subsequently confirmed the unification multiple times on the February 25 episode of WWE SmackDown. Reigns’ special counsel, Paul Heyman, hyped it up as the biggest match in history during the contract signing.
Winner Take All. Championship Unification.
