It has become a custom for WWE to think up a lot of random ideas for WrestleMania each year. Due to the rise of issues involving the Mania line-up, it was reported that WWE was considering the idea of changing the plans up for people such as Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns.
Now it appears that while things will be switched up, they will be switched in a massive way.
According to Daily Wrestling News, Triple H and Vince McMahon are in major disagreement involving Mania plans. Triple H wants to face Sting, but Vince wants Sting to face The Undertaker. Vince was reportedly fine with the idea of Triple H/Sting if Undertaker cannot return. Meanwhile, Triple H wants to face Sting whether or not Undertaker can come back or not.
Triple H reportedly had the idea that if The Undertaker returns, he could be added to the WWE World Heavyweight Title picture. Which would make a triple threat match happen between Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, and The Undertaker.
Roman would still come out on top, but who takes the pin is up in the air. If WWE can sign Brock Lesnar, Undertaker would be pinned by Reigns for the title win. If Lesnar is not re-signed by WWE, he would take the pin. The idea makes sense for a few reasons. It puts less stress on The Undertaker, who wouldn’t have to do as much. Also, it takes stress off of Reigns on a massive stage. Plus, Taker would want revenge on Lesnar, obviously. So the concept makes sense a bit.
Triple H is still heavy on pushing Reigns; it is said that Vince is having second thoughts, however. This is also present among many others backstage. Still though, WWE has been trying to push Reigns to get him ready. If you ask fans, WWE seems to be failing to make “Roman Reigns look strong.”
This is why we have been hearing reports regarding WWE changing the plans up to remove Reigns from the title picture in favor of someone like Ambrose and Ziggler, who are said to be “ready” while Reigns is simply not just yet.
WWE has also been building various men to help them out regardless of who they want to go with. Ambrose has come out looking great in his rivalry with Bray Wyatt while WWE has massively pushed Dolph Ziggler after they pretty much made him at Survivor Series in November. Meanwhile, WWE has built up Seth Rollins and have an opportunity to do anything with him due to his possession of the Money in the Bank briefcase that he won over the summer.
Reigns’ spot is still unsafe, but it could be set in stone if Triple H gets his way and faces Sting while Taker is thrown into the WWE World Heavyweight Title picture. WWE obviously has a lot of opportunities they can still set in motion, but they’d have to begin programs within the next month to build them for WrestleMania 31. So we should find out some of WWE’s plans by The Royal Rumble PPV.
