I am so happy! I have been a huge Brock Lesnar fan since he debuted in the WWE over a decade ago. And I will be at WrestleMania this weekend knowing that this will not be the last time I see him in the ring. Amazing!!!
Months before the Royal Rumble, I predicted a triple threat match at WrestleMania between all three former members of the Shield. My idea was that Roman Reigns would win the Rumble. Somehow Seth Rollins wins the title at the Rumble and Dean Ambrose steals the Money in the Briefcase Bashone, and cashes it in (knowing that WWE never follows legal rules). Or Ambrose somehow wins the title and the briefcase is cashed in at Mania.
However, as you can see, it did not happen so. The problem with Reigns winning is that he wasn’t the right guy to win. The WWE pimped him for months as the next guy but fans weren’t buying it. He was recently on the shelf and did nothing to gain any momentum. He didn’t fit into the storyline.
Oh and the reaction to this is still trending:
I don’t know what the process was for determining the ending to the Undertaker’s streak, but if it was a legit decision from the higher ups, I applaud them.
The Undertaker had won his previous 21 WrestleMania matches. That 21-0 streak was impressive, but it started to bother me in a bit. Following the Undertaker’s last two matches against Triple H, which got him to 20-0, I realized that the winning streak was becoming bigger than the business. I started to lose interest.
What’s the fun in the streak if it’s so predictable? For some time, it was a given that the Undertaker would win. I was OK with it until the drama in it started to die down. Undertaker wasn’t truly challenged and there was no real threat. In fact, I didn’t even care about last year’s match against CM Punk because I knew that Undertaker would win.
