After passing the unprecedented 900-day milestone as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns has his eyes firmly set on retaining the title against his latest challenger, Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania 39.

In the women’s championship battles, SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair will defend her title against Rhea Ripley. Ripley enters the match following her spectacular victory at Royal Rumble to earn her title shot at WrestleMania 39, presenting a career defining moment for the Australian as she takes on Flair, an opponent Ripley has never conquered.
Bianca Belair will be determined to retain her Raw Women’s Championship as she heads into the ring for a mammoth clash with Asuka, who earned her place in the title match after emerging victorious at Elimination Chamber in February.
WWE fans are also set to see legends of the past on The Grandest Stage of Them All, with Hollywood star and WWE icon, John Cena, bringing his two decades of experience to WrestleMania 39. Cena will face off with the new generation of local talent in the form of United States Champion Austin Theory in an unmissable moment in WWE history.
The recent feud between former allies, Scotland’s Drew McIntyre and Ireland’s Sheamus, has led to a three-way title fight for the Intercontinental Championship against German Giant, Gunther, in an explosive clash of the European heavyweights in California.
