Prior to the Feb. 9 showing of “Monday Night Raw,” WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross published a blog on his website, JRsBarBq.com to preview the show, while also hitting on other WWE topics.
Ross wrote about one of the biggest stories from that day, a report about Vince McMahon making a new main event match for WrestleMania 31. The new main event would see WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar defend his title in a Triple Threat match against Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns. “Good Ol’ JR” hit on the potential change, talking about how Bryan could work well with Lesnar:
“Can’t help but think that as much buzz that is surrounding WWE’s Daniel Bryan that there is no way that WWE won’t use DB in he WWE Title picture at WM31. I’m not sure how WWE are going to get there, which actually makes watching their weekly TV more compelling, or the end game but Bryan is too hot to not put him in the title picture to make the outcome more unpredictable. I am not a big proponent of a multiple person, main event at WM31 for the WWE Championship but having a three or four man match may have to be the way to go considering the lay of the creative landscape currently in WWE. This is all TBD, I assume. IMO and from talking to my wrestling fan friends, Daniel Bryan is the most compelling talent on the WWE roster right now along with Brock Lesnar.”
“This scenario certainly doesn’t eliminate Roman Reigns from title consideration and I still think that Heyman and Reigns makes for an interesting combination that has multiple win-win components. I also l like the combination of Heyman and Rollins.”
“Because some have asked, yes, Bryan and Lesnar could have a great match in any environment and those that think that DB’s size is an issue have likely ever had their butt kicked by someone smaller than them. Bryan is the best in ring performer WWE has and that statement alone tells me he can ave a strong match with virtually anyone on the roster.”
Additionally, Ross discussed Brock Lesnar’s WWE future, as there have been many rumors about Lesnar returning to MMA:
“Lesnar’s long term career in WWE is still in question at this time and will remain so until he decides where he wants to hang out his shingle after WM31. There is still ample MMA talk regarding Brock as UFC would obviously love to have him back and Brock Lesnar in Bellator would be a huge coup for that organization so Lesnar has multiple options and all, one would assume, for significant cash.”
