An update on which night will host the Usos vs Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn match at WrestleMania 39 has been revealed.
Dave Meltzer provided the update in the new issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required), writing:
“It appears to be official at this point that the two WrestleMania main events will be Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley on 4/1, which will also include Seth Rollins vs. Logan Paul, and Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes on 4/2.
“We had reported weeks back that Reigns vs. Rhodes was the night two main event and that Flair vs. Ripley was favored to be the night one main event.
“When we had asked about Usos vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn headlining night one, since at the time Zayn was the company’s hottest babyface character, we were told that there were political reasons in play to where Flair vs. Ripley would most likely get that spot.
“It is not clear that the Usos match will be on night one, but when the original idea was to create a second world title, with Rollins, Drew McIntyre or Rhodes (Rhodes would be in this if The Rock was facing Reigns) as the three people considered for it, that was to be the night one main event, but it became the women’s match when that idea fell by the wayside.
“At that point in time, the Usos title defense was scheduled for night one.”
Meltzer had previously suggested that the “political reasons in play” related to WWE wanting to have a women’s match as the main event of one night of WrestleMania 39.
