#5 Major change to WrestleMania plans

There had been rumours regarding a leaked WrestleMania card which included matches such as John Cena vs Elias and The Fiend vs Roman Reigns. However, Dave Meltzer of WON has now stated that both these matches may be completely off.

The only two matches that I have written about that have changed and I don't know if it's a 100% changed but I was pretty much told that they have changed is Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns & John Cena and Elias. But I believe there's about 5 or 6 matches that have changed but the other ones are matches I hadn't reported yet anyway."

John Cena did not have a match at last year's WrestleMania so it will be interesting to see who WWE will choose as his opponent if it is not Elias. Also, it was widely believed that Roman Reigns was being prepared to be the one to take on The Fiend at the Grandest Stage of Them All, but with all the changes going on, it is quite intriguing as to who these two Superstars will face if not each other.
