Not really looking forward to Lesnar vs Reigns...

 

I sadly have to agree. Their first match would make a top 10 WWE matches list for me but the story and way they had executed it felt like a unique, one time thing.

Brock vs Reigns at 34, no question. I guess we'll get another Shane match and I wouldn't be shocked at a Goldberg retirement.

would they put Taker and Goldberg in the HOF on the same night?

 

Reigns vs Cena seems relatively fresh and it seems like awhile since Cena was in those sort of spots. Seems like a Summertime kind of thing to move the belt to Reigns?

 

Guessing that it'd be a risk to trust Rollins to remain healthy for a matchup vs Reigns?

I don't see them having the patience of holding Lesnar vs Reigns for 1 full year like they did with Cena/Rock. At least not with Brock not losing the title in the mean time.

I'm more than happy to see Brock & Roman do it again.  Very curious to see how its framed and put together differently from 31 if we do indeed get there.  The original was a classic so why not?

If indeed Taker doesn't come back for a beforehand-advertised retirement, I wonder what to do with Cena.

Here's a proposal: The Authority vs. Cena & Nikki.

Bizarre that people are shitting on the idea of Lesnar vs Reigns when they had the last great Wrestlemania match to date, one of the best the company has ever done AND didn't have a proper finish so there's clearly storyline reasons to renew the rivalry.

Could Brock have had the same level of match with anyone else? I think so.

He hasn't though. Except for the Cena Extreme Rules match, that was his best WWE match imo. Maybe just maybe Reigns and Cena are actually good.

I am all for the idea of Reigns vs Brock next year. Keeping Brock busy for his limited engagements wont be a problem. He can defend against Rollins, Owens, Balor, Joe, and even Cesaro or Zayn if they really wanted to push it and have fun matches really highlight him and build him (back) up a bit over the course of the year. I'd honestly have him go over Reigns once this year too (either at the rumble or Survivor Series) to build the bad blood and remind everyone what kind of beating these two can put on each other.  The trick is keeping Reigns busy for that amount of time. I'd like him to full embrace his grey area position and feud with many of those guys listed before.

 

Other than that it is impossible to tell what we get next year. If they do Goldberg again i am not even sure who he faces other than Cena or HHH. Neither is that compelling to me, though I would assume Cena could make it good. I really hope Styles is in a big title match next year. I don't think it will happen, but I'd love to see Dragon back in the ring for a proper send off.

His 3 way with Rollins and Punk was really good as was his Punk match. The Taker stuff was good. He hasn't had many other guys as opponents. No one's getting a great one out of HHH, the Goldberg series was very short though they did the best they could with it and Orton's Orton.

I am thinking about booking up my hotel next month. I definitely plan on going next year. I was at 30 and the whole weekend was an absolute blast.

Observer:

It was noted to us that moving Reigns, which was evidently still under discussion of late, would have also required moving both Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar, since the companys key summer storylines revolved around Strowman working on top against Reigns, leading to Lesnar, and keeping alive Reigns vs. Lesnar as the top program with the idea of keeping them apart as long as possible, with the idea being WrestleMania.

So the scuttlebutt is that Reigns vs Lesnar is being moved up to SummerSlam and Reigns vs Cena may take its place at Mania. To a lesser extent I have also seen rumors that they were going to hold off Styles vs Nak for mania and now may move that up. None of that is particularly surprising, but if we get Reigns vs Cena at SS, what do we get from Brock at mania....?

 

vs Joe (blowoff to a long term feud)?

vs AJ?

vs Nak?

vs Balor?

vs Braun ?

vs Rollins?

vs Cass?

vs Bray?

Brock has to face Braun at WM. I just don't see the appeal in anyone else except maybe Joe if their match goes well. I would do Lesnar/Reigns at SS and have Braun win the rumble and beat Brock at mania.

Reigns vs Cena at Mania feels like a true epic main event. I totally want to see Reigns vs Lesnar again, but they should probably get that done before Mania. They could also bill Reigns vs Cena as Cena going for #17 and the record

Reigns vs Cena for the title (esp for #17) sounds awesome. As much as Brock/Reigns II will be great, I am no sure there is a bigger main event they could do. If they do it right they will get the crowd face-melting hot for this.

 

Brock vs Braun sounds good, but Brock vs AJ or Joe (again, if the first one goes well and they slow build it) would be preferable to me.  I am imagining they are thinking more about Braun though.... maybe even Cass if they really do love him as much as the rumors indicate, but I really hope that isn't in the cards for 'mania.
