In the last hours, there have been changes in the traditional Christmas event that WWE celebrates each year at Madison Square Garden in New York. According to the local publicity of the show, Roman Reigns will defend his Intercontinental title against John Cena at Madison Square Garden.
Recall that, under the card, John Cena was facing Samoa Joe for the first time in Madison, and that Roman Reigns was joining his colleagues from The Shield to fight The Bar and Bray Wyatt. WWE has always put all the meat in the splash at the annual event held at the New York Knicks stadium, and due to the circumstances of the previous Monday Night Raw programs and the injury of Dean Ambrose, there are many changes in the card and few matches announced. This could be a strategy to give surprises during the event.
Roman Reigns will defend his Intercontinental title against John Cena. If Cena victorious, it would not be the first time changed the belt at a Madison event. This same year, AJ Styles won the United States championship by beating Kevin Owens.
According to the latest information from the US portals, this fight could mean a change of hands of the Intercontinental title so that Roman Reigns can concentrate on the Royal Rumble and his future fight at WrestleMania 34 against Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship.
The superstars announced for this event are Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, John Cena, Seth Rollins, Jason Jordan, Bray Wyatt, Finn Bálor, Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Samoa Joe, Matt Hardy, Sheamus, Cesaro and Nia Jax.
