What Lies Ahead On The Road To WrestleMania?
The Royal Rumble has come and gone and now we can focus on the Road to WrestleMania. April 4th, in my opinion, will be the turning point for millions of wrestling fans who are waiting for the future of the company to take over. I have no problem with Triple H becoming WWE Champion. For a guy who’s still more than capable in the ring.
This isn’t like putting the title on someone like Sting, Triple H will put on a very good, match with Roman Reigns (his likely opponent, although I wouldn’t rule out Dean Ambrose) and drop the belt at WrestleMania. To be honest, I can’t see Brock Lesnar winning the triple threat match at Fastlane, that’s kind of redundant after what happen last year. He currently has a beef on the horizon with the Wyatt Family, that will most likely be handled at The Show of Shows.
So what lies ahead?
WrestleMania seems to be shaking up like this so far:
Triple H vs. Roman Reigns or Dean Ambrose for the WWE Title (Hopefully it’s Ambrose because he has all the tools to be the MAN)
Brock Lesnar vs. Bray Wyatt (Lesnar should lose this match)
Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch for the Diva’s Title
The rest of the show needs to be filled out, but I think going this route would be a great idea especially given that five major guys are out with injuries (John Cena, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Cesaro and Daniel Bryan.) Cena not being there really hurts WWE in the crossover star power department. The Rock will likely not wrestle when he makes his appearance there.
So you need somebody like Triple H who is known outside of WWE fans to hold the fort down with Lesnar, the Undertaker (whose opponent we obviously don’t know yet), and maybe Chris Jericho (I’d book him with AJ Styles and let them go 20 minutes and tear the house down to cement Styles’ place in the company).
If you ask me they’ve made the most of a depleted roster since November and have hit the notes they needed to. Not everything was not done perfectly (it never is folks, go back and watch some of the shows from your favorite era and see for yourself) but I can guarantee that you or I would not have done it any better. Vince and company have been at this for a while and their success vs. failure rate is pretty darn good compared to what competition they do have.
I don’t automatically praise what they do but I harbor no illusions that we would consistently do it better for 30 years. So we’ll see happens, as we all get ready to sit back and enjoy the road to WrestleMania.
