The closing scene from last night’s WWE Royal Rumble event was certainly “All in the Family”. Roman Reigns going over as “the guy” in this year’s Rumble match was inevitable–especially when names like Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, and Dolph Ziggler were literally dropped out of the match–the Philadelphia crowd, in desperation, started rooting for Rusev to knock out Reigns. Not even The Great One, largely there for crowd control, was able to appease the heated Wells Fargo Center. Like it or not, the main event for WrestleMania will be Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight championship. That is of course Plan A; but as you should know there is always a Plan B.
Much like Paul Heyman stating that he has solutions: taking care of The Authority’s problem with John Cena when he was the WWE champion, and now willing to lend his services again with their issues with “The Vigilante” Sting; there is a solution to this year’s WrestleMania main event, and no, it’s not another YES Movement. The solution lies with the self-proclaimed future of the WWE Seth Rollins and his Money in the Bank contract. A contract which states that he can cash in for a World championship opportunity anytime he pleases.
As retribution for last night’s Triple Threat match, Seth Rollins may decide to cash in on the unsuspecting Brock Lesnar sooner rather than later; thus changing the main event to Rollins vs Reigns. But to hold the MITB for so long and have such momentum, Rollins, being an architect and all, would want to wait until WrestleMania and either A) insert himself into the main event, turning this into a Triple Threat match; or B) leaving the main event as it stands, but cashing in on the winner so the title changes hands regardless of who wins the main event.
There was a lot of fanfare reported last night that the WWE Network cancellation page crashed. While Vince McMahon and Co. are dead set on having Roman Reigns be the next guy, the wrestling fans are making their voices heard in a way that even Vinnie Mac may finally listen. Will WWE close down tomorrow? Absolutely not. May they change their minds about the WrestleMania card? Perhaps. The fans demanded Daniel Bryan last year, and we got him. Anything can happen in the WWE.
Question: How great was seeing Bully Ray / Bubba Ray Dudley back in a WWE ring? What are your thoughts, people!?
