The WWE Universe is less than three weeks away from their biggest show of the year, and things are not looking very promising for Wrestlemania 31.
Following last year’s brilliant card, the WWE had a ton of momentum heading into this year and with a healthy roster they shouldn’t be having the problems they currently are. Lets take a look at the current card, and how it could have been a lot better.
WWE World Heavyweight Title Match
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns
Paul Heyman has cut some amazing promos to keep this even close to watchable. No one wanted to see Roman Reigns in the main event over Daniel Bryan, and the WWE forced it to happen anyway. The leaked story of Lesnar leaving WWE the night after Mania to return to the UFC isn’t helping matters.
No one expects Lesnar to leave Mania with the title, and if he does you can almost certainly expect Seth Rollins to cash in his MITB on him the following night and properly send Lesnar off to the UFC.
Triple H vs. Sting
This match actually had legs at one point, everyone wanted to see the returning Sting, take down the evil Authority leader HHH. Things were going good until last night, when they had Sting deliver a taped promo and used SOMEONES ELSES VOICE??????? Any steam this match had is now gone. You have a 55 year old Sting, whose sole image was to be the silent vigilante, and in one ill timed, idiotic promo, the WWE blew that one.
The Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt
This match would have been great last year. Since the Undertaker has already lost and the streak was stopped last year. What would Wyatt, who is one of the best young performers on the roster, have to gain from the win? This match should have happened last year, bottom line!
United States Title Match
John Cena vs. Rusev
This is another match that WAS looking great until last nights RAW. Rusev WAS a monster and Cena was the ultimate good guy to take him down. They simply needed to wait three more weeks until Wrestlemania. That match lost all momentum last night with Cena destroying Rusev during a promo. Total waste.
Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match
Barrett (c) vs. Harper vs. Truth vs. Ambrose vs. Ziggler vs Daniel Bryan
Calling it right now, this will steal the show! 5 guys who can absolutely go, and R- Truth. I would have much rather saw a Ziggler vs Bryan co main event, but this will do nicely!
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
This will be a fun one to watch. After Cesaro won last year, it did nothing for his career. It actually set him back. However, this time around, a Mizdow win could be the start of something big.
AJ Lee & Paige vs. The Bella Twins
This should have been a one on one with AJ vs Paige. But the WWE continues to force the Bellas down our throats.
After last night, it also apparent that a match with Seth Rollins and Randy Orton will take place. Just another reminder of why Randy Orton will never work as a face. The crowd barely cheered or even seemed to care about his beat down of Rollins last night.
Please WWE, prove me wrong. As a lifelong WWE fan, I couldn’t be happier if you did.
