Cooler heads prevailed when Vince McMahon’s constant desire to put Roman Reigns in main events was overruled, or someone talked some sense in to him. He reportedly wanted to switch Reigns and Undertaker to the main event, but knowing the fans would vocalize their disdain for the change it was placed as the “3rd main event”. WWE is notorious for claiming they have 4 or 5 main events on a card. So, in a way – Vince McMahon got his wish and Reigns is main eventing his third WrestleMania in a row.
As for making Reigns a bad guy, HHH stated they were already portraying him in a way for fans to boo him. God help us all.
