- According to Wrestling Observer Radio, top WWE executives don’t see Daniel Bryan as a top guy who can be the face of the company no matter how much he gets over. The site reports that the company was of the feeling that they will not give into fans as they did last year and won’t add Bryan to the main event of WrestleMania again.

As previously reported, the current working plan is to have Ziggler and Bryan face off at the show. The idea is to have them open the PPV.

This is actually pretty interesting. It possibly sets up the same situation that WWE was in last year with the Royal Rumble event. The match you know everyone is going to like starts the show off and the rest of the matches are booed. Now, granted, that won't necessarily be the case, but I could see Cena/Rusev, what ever match Sheamus and Orton are in, and Lesnar/Reigns getting some intense heat. The heels will be heavily cheered over the faces, it will be a hilarious cluster****.

While the WrestleMania 31 main event match pitting Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar is set in stone and not changing, there's at least been some talk of the possibility of Reigns turning heel and if Lesnar signs a new deal with the company, they could attempt a double turn and extend the feud.
Reigns/Lesnar could very well go down in history as one of the most failed feuds ever. I don't think WWE realizes what kind of a disaster this is going to turn out to be. What's even worse is that they think Bryan not being a part of the main event is what everyone is so pissed about, when in fact it's the people involved that is making everyone angry.

Something will happen to "shock people". Heyman will turn on Lesnar to help Reigns or something. Only way it works and it will turn out to suck because lets face it Reigns can barely do the heel act im betting

Vince's Big Guys must be at the top forever!

Reigns was actually able to do a decent job of playing the heel role over on NXT, but that's not what I'm worried about.

This recent rumor, if true, shows us that WWE isn't slowing down on Reigns push no matter what. If it has to come down to turning him heel, then they are going to turn him heel and make sure he gets the title at the end of the night. What kind of message does it send when the person you want to replace Cena for the next five or so years, what ever amount of time it is he's going to be on top for, is being received so poorly by the average audience and has done such a poor job of playing the face role that you have to resort to having him turn heel against a guy that had ended the Undertaker's undefeated streak at last years Wrestlemania?

When does it stop? WWE seems hell bent on finding that new top star that they need to take Cena's place, because they've finally realized that it's gotten to a point where Cena can no longer be that focal point and remain original. And I absolutely applaud them for that, I really do. But you can't build a top star if the fans do not approve of said person. WWE tried time and time again to build up that star capable of being on par with Cena from a drawing standpoint. Last year, Daniel Bryan seemed to be that guy. He was bringing in high ratings, he had fans from non WWE events chanting his name and doing the yes chants, he was without a doubt the most over performer in WWE at the time and he still is today. Vince is choosing not to capitalize on this because he doesn't see Bryan as capable of being in that spot. It's no longer become about what the fans want and that's a dangerous path to take when you're trying to make them buy your network and view your product on a weekly basis.

Now you've got Reigns/Lesnar, a match numerous WWE fans (not just pro wrestling fans) have made it loud and clear that they do not want to see this match and would prefer to see Bryan/Lesnar or a Shield Triple Threat match. Vince is going against this and is committing one of the all time greatest business sins you could possibly commit. He is refusing to accept that something he wants so badly to happen most likely won't work and is refusing to accommodate. Risks are a good thing to make in the business world, but not when it's a risk that is going against all of the other signs that show that it's not a good idea.

I personally hope for WWE's sake that this turns out for the best, but it angers me to see them about to make what could very well turn out to be a huge mistake when the writing is on the wall about how bad of an idea it is and the solutions are easy to find. But I guess they need to realize that there's a problem first in order to do so, and I think they're too stubborn to realize it.

God forbid they have a heel that is genuinely disliked.

So what, are we just going to have him be heel for the rest of his career?

If you're trying to build someone up as the future of your company, and you have to resort to possibly having him turn heel because he's disliked by the majority, that is NOT a good thing. That means that you're doing nothing more than making someone a heel because it's a last resort to cover their ass, not because it's time for a change or they've shown they're capable of playing the role extremely well.

What about when he needs to go back to being face? With the development he's made in four years, I don't see him making much significant development in, lets say, two years. This is a bad sign. People who are saying this is a good idea on WWE's part are wrong.

Re: Wrestling Rumors Thread

So I guess Bryan/Ziggler is confirmed and ready to go. I still can't understand WWE's thinking however. You have a chance to have two historic co main events along with an incredible supporting card and for what ever reason they don't want to go with it.

They're likely going to open the show, too.

With WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar still not re-signed to the company as of this past week, there is concern with WWE that Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 31 could flop and be as bad as Lesnar vs. Bill Goldberg was at WrestleMania 20. A source noted that the match “has disaster written all over it.”

Plans for the actual match are obviously up in the air this far out and Seth Rollins cashing in is a contingency plan. Triple H didn’t want Rollins cashing in at the Rumble and this could be something he’s saving for if Lesnar re-signs or not.

Triple H and Vince McMahon both want Reigns in the main event but Triple H is skeptical of whether or not Lesnar will re-sign. We noted before that a three-way with Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Roman Reign for the title was discussed and it was actually Triple H who suggested that match. Obviously WWE stuck with the original plan of Lesnar retaining at the Rumble so that match won’t be happening. Reigns will still be main eventing WrestleMania and nobody expects another Superstar to be added to the match.

People close to top WWE officials say Vince is fully convinced he will get Lesnar to re-sign after WrestleMania is over. It’s been noted how many within WWE, including top officials, expect Lesnar to return to UFC after WrestleMania but Vince is giving the strong impression that he’s getting Lesnar to stay.

Roman Reigns on Sam Roberts podcast. 2 days before rumble.

Wasn't endearing throughout either.

Not a rumor but interesting.
