WrestleMania 38 Night 1’s Main Event Update
This past Monday’s episode of WWE RAW featured Kevin Owens stating that his KO Show segment with Steve Austin would be the main event of Night 1 of WrestleMania 38. During the following day’s episode of the Ellen DeGeneres’ show, Ronda Rousey stated that her match against Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship would be the main event instead.
Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that his sources stated that the current feeling within the company is that the KO Show segment will be the actual main event of the show.
These same sources also stated that WWE’s plans for the main event likely will change multiple times throughout the week and up until the day of the show due to Vince McMahon’s habit of changing his mind a lot.
Meltzer reported that the confusion caused by Rousey was likely due to her either never being informed of the plans for Night 1’s main event or McMahon had changed his mind again following this past Monday’s RAW show.
