I just don't really understand WrestleMania right now. People always talk shit about the WWE, but when you look at things like the build of Dean Ambrose, in general the WWE has been spot on with their long term plans.
But it should all culminate at WrestleMania in my opinion. They have a lot of great wrester on great streaks right now. Without changing the WWE's storylines (because they are actually good), how hard would this have been:-
Roman Reigns wins the Royal Rumble, last eliminating Triple H (you all go nuts).
(Any storyline for Roman Reigns at Fastlane)
Dean Ambrose beats Triple H for #1
contendership (HHH is up to his shit. Roman Reigns makes the save. Ambrose isn't pleased).
Sami Zayn Vs Kevin Owens - Ends in DQ or something.
Brock Lesnar Vs Braun Strowman (Following up on the RR fuckery)
Roman Reigns Vs Dean Ambrose (Dean Ambrose wins)
Sami Zayn Vs Kevin Owens - Last Man Standing (Sami Zayn wins)
Brock Lesnar Vs All 4 Wyatt Family Members (Brock beats first 3. Bray pins clean. Brock gets put out of commission for a few months. Brock looks strong, Wyatt family look strong as a unit).
The Dudley Boyz Vs The New Day Vs Sheamus/Rusev - TLC
Kalisto Vs Sin Cara (Break Lucha Dragons since Kalisto is a singles champ. Cara as heel)
AJ Styles Vs The Undertaker (Long shot one, but Undertaker as a sort of anti-new star heel)
Damien Sandow, Dolph Ziggler, Goldust, R-Truth, Social Outcasts, The Usos, Jack Swagger, Kane, The Ascension, Neville, Ryback, Stardust & Tyler Breeze - Andre the Giant Memorial (If Cesaro was healed up, he comes in and wins. If not, Neville wins).
What I posted there, outside of Taker Vs AJ, is all ridiculously easy to put together and requires no real massive effort from the WWE. They could simply continue their current storylines. Reigns could beat Ambrose if they are really hot on him, whatever. Triple H could maybe face AJ instead of Taker with some form of build. Again, whatever. Nothing is really bizarre or out of the ordinary about this set up, and yet for some reason we have HHH Vs Reigns which no one likes, Ambrose Vs Lesnar which is awesome, The Wyatts doing nothing important, Y2AJ which is ridiculous (although I do like AJ paying his dues in a tag team) and the original thread point, Big Slow (Not Luke Barnett) Vs Kevin Owens for no reason.
I'm really positive on the WWE unlike apparently everyone else, but they seem to be missing out on a great Mania here.
