Default Let's Get It Out Of The Way

Unless if there happens to be a last moment change of plans, Roman Reigns is going to be facing Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34. That has been the plan for months now and I see no signs of it changing.

And honestly, I think it's time to just get it over with. It's clear WWE has wanted to do this since WrestleMania 31, and this time: It looks like there's no budging them. If they want to do it, let them. Get it out of the system and have hem have their big epic match where Roman slays the Beast.

Am I saying that you shouldn't be disappointed or upset about this possibility, absolutely not. You should be free to feel whatever you want on this situation; but in the end, there are some things that are inevitable and sometimes all but unavoidable. This is one of those times.

On the plus side: If they do this match at WrestleMania 34, they'll likely never have them fight again; so there's that.

What the WWE wants to do, and what the WWE Universe wants to see, can very well be 2 different things. That has always been the case since the beginning. With WWE's 50 / 50 booking, I agree with them half the time. They should do something a little more creative. How about this??

Triple Threat Elimination WWE Universal Championship Title match
WWE Universal Champion, Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns vs. the Undertaker

I’d have the Undertaker pin both Lesnar and Reigns to get his WrestleMania loses back, and on the following Raw, retire as Universal Champion.

That would be so damn good. Have Reigns vs Lesnar happen at Survivor Series or The Rumble. And while they're going for a rematch at Wrestlemania, add Undertaker to the mix.

Pretty much this, I haven't personally watched WWE in nearly two years because of the direction the company is taking, but I wish they'd just get this shit over with. I mean it ultimately don't mean fuck anyway since they de facto gave Goldberg the streak rub by having him be the first one to beat Lesnar (in a squash, no less)

I mean who really cares if Roman becomes the 'second ever guy' to beat Lesnar?

Well, technically he'd be t he fifth seeing as how Cena, Triple H and Undertaker all hold wins over him. In the case of Cena and Triple H, it was during the time before this formula of invincibility was adopted; what I mean by that is those matches happened before Lesnar was being fed modern stars in what amounted to squash matches. In Taker's case, it came about because he's Taker and even then, the victory was marred due to Taker tapping out and then delivering a low blow to Lesnar.

Vince McMahon, if nobody else, is dead set on making Roman Reigns as close to being the next John Cena as he possibly can. That means that it's going to happen even if every other executive was against it and no matter if the entire locker room is against it; despite WWE being a publicly traded company, Vince McMahon is really the only person in the company with real power and he's structured the company's corporate workings just for that purpose. He wants Roman Reigns to be the true, bottom line top guy in the company and he will as long as he remains healthy, doesn't do/say anything to embarrass the company and/or as long as Vince is still CEO.

If we're going to get competitive matches for the Universal Championship right up until Lesnar drops it, then that makes the whole thing a lot easier for me. It wasn't watching Lesnar win against all these modern guys that bothered me so much as it was Lesnar flat out destroying them as though they were no threat whatsoever that got my goat. If they keep going with Lesnar actually having to strive and struggle to retain the title, then I can live with him holding it until WrestleMania but if they wind up reverting to form, then I'll stop watching Lesnar title matches.

It wouldn't surprise me if they did revert to form with Lesnar as a means of making Reigns' victory seem all that more monumental. It's common knowledge how much Vince loves alpha male booking scenarios, so having Lesnar go back to destroying his challengers without ever really looking vulnerable just so Reigns can come out on top is something I could see happening. Next week, Reigns faces Miz for the IC title and I can see Reigns winning the title and holding it just so Vince can have him make history as the first simultaneous Universal and Intercontinental Champion.

I have a feeling Vince is going to go all out in order to make Reigns' eventual triumph look like something epic but that it won't come off that way in the eyes of most people. An epic moment was Bryan's triumph at WrestleMania XXX, an epic moment is Taker, Triple H and & HBK embracing after the HIAC match at WrestleMania XXVIII. These are moments in which many fans were thinking along the lines of "OMG, that was amazing!!!" In the case of Roman's eventual conquest of the Beast, I'd say the sentiment is more "Well, it's gonna happen so that's all there is to it."

The only epic thing they could do is have Reigns squash Lesnar. But that's already happened with Goldberg so Reigns will just have to face and overcome Lesnar now and the finale will be an OK Wrestlemania moment. Something like Cena vs Batista from WM 26.

Well yeah, but they can easily spin that just as they sorta tried to do during the Lesnar vs. Strowman match at No Mercy. At one point, while Lesnar was being dominated, Cole brought up that only Goldberg had been this dominant against Lesnar but said something to the effect that it was more to do with Lesnar being surprised and unprepared. That wasn't exactly what Cole said, but it was along those lines; they didn't come right out and claim Goldberg's win was a fluke but it was kinda sorta implied.

I don't see this happening at all.

I see Miz looking like he'll lose, Miztourage beating down Reigns, to set up Miz & Miztourage vs. The Shield at TLC.

Personally I'd rather see someone else beat Lesnar, Strowman for example, but I guess they have to give Reigns the rub. Beating Cena, HHH and retiring the Undertaker wasn't enough I suppose, that's just me though.

So bring on Mania. Let Reigns main event his 4th in a row, beat Lesnar and then he can, as I've said before become champ forever. That will make his fans deliriously happy and the rest of us can just ignore him. as I already do.

It's been a waste of a year as far as I'm concerned with Lesnar holding the title just waiting for this to happen. I'm tired of it and have been for a long time. Would rather see someone else get the opportunity as I find Reigns as about as exciting as watching paint dry, but again that's just me. It will be interesting to see how the ratings fare when he does get the title again. They didn't do so well the last time.

But to be fair, the ratings haven't been doig wll for a while now, they weren't great when owens was champion either and before the brand split, seth rollins didn't bring the ratings up either. What I'm saying is that you can't blame reigns for bad ratings. Blame the people who are booking te show every week.

Personally, I can't stand watching raw on a weekly bases because I find pretty much everybody on the roster boring. The only bright spot for me are reigns and strowman which I think are the only 2 that stands out as actual main event talent right now. Everybody else are just their to fill time, so I rather pvr the show and skip through everything I don't like then watch the show live every week btu that just me.

Also right ow, I rather see reigns beat lesnar rather then strowman because after the disaster that was their no mercy match, I really don't want to see that match again. I rather see reigns beat lesnar for the title and then lose it to strowman because at less, you will get 2 entertaining matches out of it instead of oe trainweck and one good mach.
