Could the WrestleMania 31 main event change? While not confirmed, it appears that WWE might be leaning toward changing it at least a little. Triple H made an announcement on WWE SmackDown this past week, saying that he would put an end to the Royal Rumble controversy. This led many to believe he would announce something that would allow for a change in the Mania main event. He claimed that his announcement would likely shake the WWE Universe to it’s very core.
This is a strong statement by the storyline WWE COO. It is one that WWE fans hope is not disappointing.
The issue is, no one knows exactly what it planned. According to Cageside Seats, we may have an idea about the announcement. Cageside reports that Triple H is expected to announce a match at WWE Fast Lane that would include the likes of Roman Reigns, Daniel Bryan, and others. A multi-man match is set to take place that would help steer the direction of WrestleMania for all involved.
It is uncertain if a battle royal of sorts will take place or a six-man tag. Right now, we don’t know the exact details of what Triple H will talk about on WWE RAW.
We can assume this, however. WWE is still recovering from the major negativity following the Royal Rumble PPV. Seemingly every news outlet panned the event and spoke negatively about Roman Reigns, the winner of the 2015 Rumble match. It seemed that Triple H was claiming that he would change the main event in some way, or at least give us a possibility of it when he spoke on SmackDown.
We know Triple H will announce something to do with WWE Fast Lane, WWE’s newest February PPV. They want this PPV to be must-see, especially during a free WWE Network period. So the show will most likely be stacked up in order to impress people.
That said, if the main event has to do with what could go down at WrestleMania, we could see something interesting.
There is a rumor that if plans go according to plan, with Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar headlining the WrestleMania 31 main event, WWE would consider a double turn at WrestleMania. This means the current face and heel would switch roles by the end of the match. Cageside reports that there is some talk of turning Reigns heel, especially if WWE can get Brock Lesnar to re-sign with the company. This would allow WWE to continue the Lesnar/Reigns rivalry past WrestleMania for a bit.
Many think the only way to save Reigns is to go ahead and make him a heel because that is how WWE fans are treating him regardless of his character. Meanwhile, WWE fans have not seen a babyface Brock Lesnar since he returned, so it could be interesting to see him face heels instead of faces for a bit.
Fans like Lesnar, but they may only cheer him majorly due to the hatred Reigns has right now. So it is uncertain that this could go down.
If WWE does the double turn concept, we could assume Paul Heyman would be involved in some way. It would be the first WrestleMania double turn since “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Bret Hart at WrestleMania 13. We know that this sent Austin into the stratosphere of fame while Hart also benefited greatly from the move to heel. It is uncertain if that could happen with Lesnar and Reigns, but something needs to be done if the main event stays the same.
Whether Triple H changes the main event of WrestleMania or it stays the same, plans seem to be in place regardless in order for WWE fans to enjoy the PPV.
