Who will headline night one of WrestleMania 39?

We all know that Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes will be main eventing WrestleMania 39 night two on Sunday. But the big question remains who will be main eventing night one on Saturday?

Originally, Charlotte Flair vs Rhea Ripley was marked as the main event for the show, a return for the women in the main event after they missed out on it last year. With Steve Austin on the card in Dallas, it was impossible to not give the headlining act to Austin last year.

That ruffled some feathers after the women main evented WrestleMania 35 and 37 so this year it was decided to allow Flair and Ripley to headline the show.

But marketing material released by WWE today after releasing the two cards on ESPN’s The Hot Take clearly put Austin Theory vs John Cena for the United States title in top billing, or better yet, the featured match. Earlier this week it was announced that Theory vs Cena would be kicking off WrestleMania Saturday.

WrestleMania Sunday has Reigns and Rhodes front and center, as it should be since it is the main event after all but the choice of artwork used by WWE today has everyone wondering who will really headline night one.
