Burning down the Beast. Brock Lesnar is the most dominant Universal Champion in the title’s short history. There’s only so much that can be done against him, as he’s a nearly unstoppable monster with almost no weaknesses to his game. Only Roman Reigns has been able to do much against him most of the time and that brings up the question of who could stop him. Well now we have a possible idea.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the current plans are for Lesnar to face Seth Rollins at WrestleMania 35 with a story coming together based off of Reigns battling leukemia. The two have fought before on pay per view, with a match at Battleground 2015 where Lesnar challenged Rollins for the WWE Championship, winning by disqualification when Undertaker interfered.
Here’s how things go between them.
Opinion: I like the idea, save for the motivation. We’re already in the middle of one story involving Reigns’ illness and a second really isn’t needed. There are other things to talk about with either guy and it could be fun to hear Rollins tear into Lesnar. That’s a chance to tell a good story but this is what we might be getting instead? That’s really the best they can come up with for WrestleMania?
