They’re cutting it pretty close. With less than six weeks to go before WrestleMania 35, the biggest match not involving the women’s division is set as Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will defend against Royal Rumble winner Seth Rollins. That sounds like an easy match to set up on paper, but there might be a major problem sitting in the way and it’s not something that seems to be getting any better.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Rollins is still not medically cleared to compete and has not wrestled a match in a month. At the moment he isn’t scheduled for any upcoming matches, though he is cleared for limited physical contact, such as his run-in and brawl on this week’s Monday Night Raw. Rollins is scheduled to face Lesnar at WrestleMania 35 on April 6.
He still has it. Check out Rollins’ most recent match from Monday Night Raw:
Opinion: I’m not sure what to think about this but it’s not a good sign as we head into WrestleMania. Lesnar vs. Rollins is a big time match but at the same time, they need to be able to do something to set the match up. I’m not sure how big of a match it’s going to be, though Roman Reigns is going to help things out a little bit. At the same time though, the match is set and some of it will be sold on its name value alone.
Who do you think wins the match? What if Rollins can’t wrestle before then? Let us know in the comments below.
