The 2015 WWE preview magazine for WrestleMania 31 and the road to it has had its cover released online, and someone you wouldn’t expect is standing front and center. John Cena is there, as are Brock Lesnar and Daniel Bryan, but the man in the middle is the one that has had a lot of attention put on him in recent months.
That man is Roman Reigns.
WrestleZone got on their Instagram and revealed the cover to the world.
Brock Lesnar is likely going to headline WrestleMania 31 against the winner of the Royal Rumble, but that is still just speculation. One would think that he would be at the front of the cover, or perhaps it would be John Cena or the returning Daniel Bryan.
No, Reigns has the dead center spot, and that will make rumors fly even more that he could end up winning the Royal Rumble in a couple of weeks and go on to headline against Lesnar. As Fansided revealed, John Cena is possibly going to face off with Rusev on the biggest card of the year.
Another big thing to note from this WrestleMania 31 magazine cover is the appearance of Sting all the way on the right-hand side.
The “Vigilante” hasn’t been seen since making his debut with WWE back at Survivor Series in November. Fans have been waiting for him to show up and take on The Authority, but there has still been nothing from him.
Sting could end up having a match at WrestleMania 31, and reports believe it will be against Triple H. If he doesn’t show up soon to start a program though, there will be no time to build to anything.
The “Road to WrestleMania” is said to start at the Royal Rumble, but it has essentially already begun.
With this week’s Monday Night Raw bringing back legends and icons for a Raw Reunion, there is a lot that could take place. That includes bringing forth much more than just some nostalgia with legends and old names showing back up.
Sting could be there, and he could officially begin his program with Triple H or whomever, but that remains to be seen. Brock Lesnar could start trouble with Roman Reigns, but he first has Seth Rollins and John Cena to get past at the Royal Rumble.
Will Reigns finally rise up to main event status and show some dominance for the first time since his return from injury? If that WrestleMania 31 magazine cover is any indication of the future, he had better get started soon.
