Four main event-worthy matchups are being speculated and one, the actual main event of Wrestlemania 31, is said to now be “set in stone.” Returning legends Sting and The Rock have been given their possible counterparts, but the Wrestling Observer has reported that it all remains speculation.
The first speculated wrestler on the card is John Cena. He is supposedly to share the squared circle with the rambunctious Russian Rusev. Their rivalry is thought to have begun around the time of Royal Rumble and would play out great in WrestleMania.
The next match-up to garner attention is the returning Sting taking on The Undertaker. The match was thought to be the perfect opportunity for Sting to return last year, but Brock Lesnar was chosen to face “The Deadman.” In a recent interview, Sting mentioned that if he wasn’t going to take on the Undertaker, he’d like to face Triple H. However, Triple H is now rumored for a different bout with another returning legend.
That legend, the people’s champion, the jabroni beatin’, pie-eatin’ most electrifying man in sports entertainment today. The Rock most recently returned last week during a Raw segment where he verbally victimized Rusev and Lana in what appeared to be a beginning of a rivalry between the two. He then called out the Russian on Smackdown’s 15th anniversary show but behind the scenes. He also teased at a match with HHH at the 31st installment of Wrestlemania.
Then there is the status of the main event for the WWE Heavyweight Championship. This is the match that is said to be the most likely to happen barring injury or possible suspension. Roman Reigns is planned to currently win the Royal Rumble in January and face “The Beast” Brock Lesnar in the main event of the show of shows. The latest is that Reigns will prevail and vanquish Lesnar to close out the event.
