I DIDN"T ASK FOR THIS
- It's no secret that WWE's plan all along has been for Roman Reigns to capture the WWE World Heavyweight Title from Brock Lesnar at Sunday's WrestleMania 31. Whether Reigns is ready for the role and whether it will turn fans against him has become a major question.
Lesnar re-signing with the company this week will likely get him a big babyface reaction from the live crowd at WrestleMania.
There could also be a big angle at the end of the show to set up a future match for Lesnar. We've noted how there are several potential WrestleMania 32 opponents for Lesnar but one source close to the situation noted to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that as of now, with Lesnar re-signed, Rock vs. Brock for next year is the planned main event. As always, it was noted that plans could change, especially with The Rock's busy schedule.
Regarding Lesnar's announcement on ESPN earlier this week, WWE wanted him to announce the deal to put the WrestleMania main event finish into question.
