This is HUGE news heading into Wrestlemania. With Brock Lesnar being booked seemingly to pass the torch to Roman Reigns, this news now suddenly changes the picture. Now in a recent report by wrestling sites, WWE is said to be debating with the idea of having Brock retain the championship at the biggest show of the year. It’s said that with Roman Reigns’ push going badly, that Triple H is thinking of possibly postponing the win and having Lesnar go over to add shock value to this seemingly predictable main event. Particularly if Lesnar was resigning as we now know, is reality.
This is a fantastic deal for WWE. If WWE do in fact see UFC as competition, then retaining such a huge draw like Brock Lesnar is a major coup for the WWE. This also provides Lesnar with a lot of opportunities with wrestlers to work with. Two be honest, there were a lot of opportunities for him to wrestle all kinds of guys. Instead, he’s wrestled Cena and Triple H 3 teams, veterans like Big Show and Undertaker. The only stand-out performers he’s been able to work with are CM Punk and Seth Rollins. The new talent coming through NXT now have a huge chance to wrestle Brock Lesnar. Randy Orton, Sheamus, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, Bray Wyatt and even Dolph Ziggler all have this amazing chance to get in the ring with the Beast Incarnate.
Now the question is… will this heavily impact the main event of Wrestlemania? How do you think the Wrestlemania main event will finish? Leave a comment below and vote on the poll on what YOU think will happen?
