Re: What If - Roman Reigns had won the championship at WrestleMania 31
Rollins would still have to cash in his briefcase before June, which means that Reigns' first title reign would not last longer than 3 months. As a result we would get Rollins vs. Reigns in June 2015 instead of a year later, and Rollins would probably drop the title back to Reigns a month later instead of having a 7-month title reign.
So in hindsight, fans helped establish Rollins as a true main-eventer. And looking at what have played out in reality, a year later in 2016 they still have the unbeatable monster in Lesnar(who destroyed both Cena and Reigns), and Reigns and Rollins are both made superstars now. So I think no one would disagree that at WM31 they've made an excellent last-minute decision.
