What Wrestlemania 31 Lacked in Creative, It Made Up for Well-Booked Finishes

Wrestlemania 31

Fans have definitely cooled their jets on the weak buildup of Wrestlemania 31 once they watched and enjoyed a number of the outcomes of the three singles title matches while some were split over the Undertaker/Bray Wyatt and Triple H/Sting matchups.

Listening a plethora of podcasts that extensively reviewed the event, new WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins was described by Jim Ross as a “beatable world champion” who now has a number of opponents seeking to take him down. We can now look forward to seeing this sneaky scheming chicken s$%& heel who will use his allies in the Authority to do whatever it takes to beat the likes of Randy Orton, Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar (once he returns from his “suspension”). The fact that the champion will be on television every week and defending his belt every month. WWE was actually thinking pretty far ahead meanwhile protecting Brock Lesnar as a rule-breaking bad-ass babyface. Hopefully fans will let up booing Roman Reigns for having two really great pay per view matches with Daniel Bryan and Brock Lesnar, and getting humbled and denied the championship. Yeah, being fed down our throats.

Daniel Bryan now has  Dolph Ziggler, Bad News Barrett and the returning Sheamus to keep him busy defending the Intercontinental Title for the rest of the year. As long as he holds that belt that title will continue to be elevated, because the fans I believe will stay vocal enough to keep WWE from devaluing Daniel Bryan any further than he already has from this time last year. John Cena holding the US title could be the same as long as continues to defend the belt unlike some of the other recent title holders, ironically recent opponents Rusev and Dean Ambrose.

Wrestlemania 32

 

As for next year, Brock Lesnar should be booked for another heavyweight championship run at Wrestlemania 32 in Dallas. Believe it or not, Triple H’s win over Sting books him strong for an eventual confrontation with the Rock and Undertaker needed to come back from breaking the streak with a victory for his retirement match, whether it be Sting or not. Creative might have dropped the ball all Wrestlemania season, but the decision makers made some well thought out proactive moves . -KOP
