Original Plans For Dean Ambrose at WrestleMania 35

Dean Ambrose
As noted, there were several changes made to the WrestleMania 35 card over the last few months.

Roman Reigns being sidelined with leukemia, Jim Neidhart’s passing affecting plans for Natalya’s heel turn, injuries, and other things played a part in some of the top matches being changed.

Speaking of Roman Reigns, Dave Meltzer said in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Reigns vs. Ambrose was actually the plan before Reigns’ leukemia diagnosis. Ambrose was supposed to turn on The Big Dog at WWE Fastlane or on the following night.

Reigns vs. Ambrose would have been the main event (or one of the main events) and Reigns would have probably been the Universal Champion.

Lesnar was not in going to be in the Universal Championship picture because he was threatening to go to UFC or he was using them as leverage against Vince Mcmahon. Lesnar ultimately decided to take a big money offer from WWE and that is when they put the title on him and it was later decided that it would be Rollins challenging Lesnar for the title.
