Nah but WWE will probably try to hype Roman vs. Cena or Roman vs. Rock like one.

Actually they'll probably try hype Roman vs. Cena like today's version of Hogan vs. Warrior.

Highly unlikely as to reach Rock/Hogan or Rock/Cena level, first they would need to properly build a superstar of that magnitude. Sorry Roman but as much as WWE wants you to be that guy, I truly don't see it panning out that way in the long run. The last of those icons like Rock and Cena will probably be fully retired before WWE creates someone big enough for it to earn the dream match label.

There are no legends being made anymore. This will be evident in 10, 15 years from now. At that time, there will be no mega-matches like Hogan vs. Andre or Rock vs. Cena, etc. There is no one currently in the company to fill those types of matches, and not even close. Think about it - in the year 2030, will the major attraction be Reigns vs. Ambrose? Would that draw 93,000 like Hogan and Andre did? Of course not. Wrestling has seen its day, and that day is over. And that isn't due to bad luck, but it IS due to company policy in the year 2016. The WWE has realized that they will not promote their company on one supersatr alone like they used to, such as Hogan, Hart, Austin, Rock or Cena. They've shifted gears, downgraded, and are promoting their company as the "WWE" and not as "STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN". Does that make sense? No one is on top anymore. There's no more Hogans, no more Harts, no more Michaels, no more Rocks, no more Cenas. Reigns is just another cog in the wheel - he is under NO circumstances the face of the company - right now he's just the guy who has the belt, and they're using him to get the internet community pissed off a little more.

The WWE looks to be shrinking their appeal down to the hardcore fans and whoever will pay the $15 seat tickets. Every show has its run. It really does look like the WWE realises that it's headed towards its eventual demise. That could be in 10, 20 years or whatever - but every show has its run. In 2016, there just aren't enough fans to buy into it anymore like there used to be. Sure their arenas look full every Monday night, but there's a lot of camera tricks and really cheap seats to pull that off.

I say that eventually, they get bought out by companies like Disney and then things evolve from there. This is what is likely to happen at some point, whether it be 5, 10 or 20 years from now. But it WILL happen. Society changes, and in the 70s, 80s and 90s, fans enjoyed wrestling - but we can all see the major differences in this day and age - it's changed big time, and for the worse - it really is beginning to fold. I really think we're witnessing the decline of wrestling every time it airs on Monday nights.

It depends on how you view Reigns vs. Rollins.

Vince doesn't have balls to book Lesnar/Bayley, so probably never.

HHH vs Reigns at WM 32 is already an instant classic. Great in-ring technicality and psychology, the entire crowd was hyped and both wrestlers showed strong ability and was able to entertain throughout the entire match.


Current Favourites: AJ Styles, Sheamus, Miz, Kevin Owens, Rusev, Chris Jericho, Cesaro
