It’s a different way to go. We are on the Road To WrestleMania 38 and that means it is time to start getting the build for the show. There is a big show to get through first with Elimination Chamber, which will feature an Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship. Bobby Lashley will be defending the title against five challengers, and now we might know what this is going to mean.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the current plan is for Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber, making his planned match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 38 title vs. title. Vince McMahon feels that the match needs some extra hype because Reigns and Lesnar have fought so many times before. Lesnar and Paul Heyman have been pushing for the title for title match and McMahon is likely to go in that direction.
Opinion: This makes me think of two things. First and foremost, if Reigns and Lesnar have fought so many times before that it needs a special stipulation, maybe it is time to find a new match. Second, if this is the only World Title match, what ini the world is going to headline the other night of the show? These two are already miles ahead of everyone else on the roster, so how worthless does it make the other wrestlers if this is winner take all? I really hope they don’t go this route, because it is going to hurt everyone else’s status.
What do you think of the idea? Will WWE go this way? Let us know in the comments below.
