Roman Reigns vs Cesaro Universal Championship Match announced for Wrestlemania Backlash . The match was confirmed on tonight’s episode of SmackDown.

The WWE will host Wrestlemania Backlash next Sunday on May 16. With a little over a week left the Card is still developing. Cesaro, who has had a bone to pick with Roman Reigns, came out looking for a Universal title shot but the Tribal Chief was in no mood to entertain him.

Much to his chagrin however, Teddy Long came out with some bad news. The former SmackDown General Manager told Cesaro that he could finally have his chance against Reigns if he beat Rollins in the match.


That’s exactly what the Swiss Superman did, ending the match with a neutralizer to book a Universal Championship match for himself.
