Rollins I agree might be money, after their interactions and how boss Lesnar made him look at several points, but I honestly don't see Ambrose or Wyatt, regardless of the booking of Mania.
 
at the very least, all those names need another year to be more than just potentials.

UPDATE x 2: Before he signed a new contract with WWE, Brock Lesnar had been training heavily for a potential MMA return for the last two months. Lesnar was training up until just a few days ago and that a factor in his decision not to return to the UFC was that both his friends and his wife Rena, aka Rena "Sable" Mero, didn’t want him going back to pro fighting. What he said on ESPN was 100% true.

A babyface turn is expected to occur for him, possibly as soon as WrestleMania. WWE has been discussing a babyface turn since the beginning of the year. There is even talk that Paul Heyman may turn on Lesnar at WrestleMania 31, aligning himself with Roman Reigns and becoming his "mouthpiece". Numerous WWE officials know that Reigns needs help on the stick (microphone) and Heyman would be able to provide that.

I can see why they'd turn him face, the reaction to Brock lately has been more and more positive but then I think that's in part to who hes been facing, the reaction to Reigns has been very mixed and prior to that it was Cena who always gets a negative to mixed reaction. The other reason would be to give him a fresh roster of opponents as he is pretty much out of new babyface opponents who can be considered top draws.
Personally I hope Brock stays heel, I think his f-bombing prize fighter gimmick is a natural fit for a heel and the fact he seems to hate cutting promos is also more of a heelish trait which allows Heyman to do 95% of the talking during Lesnar's segments.
 
Regardless of what happens with Brock though I do hope Roman Reigns turns heel, I think Reigns will excel as a arrogant Batista style heel, I also think this will allow him the time to polish his skills and allow the fans to warm to him in their own time setting a eventual turn back to the babyface ranks.

Here's the problem... Brock Lesnar is just as bad, if not worse than Roman Reigns on the mic. He needs Paul Heyman every bit as much as Roman Reigns does. If WWE screws Lesnar (storyline) after Lesnar has now re-signed and they're going to try and turn Lesnar baby-face, he's going to need Paul Heyman more than ever. It's one thing if Lesnar is going into the sunset and not coming back, then sending him off as a babyface without Heyman is acceptable, and likely even the best move possible. But expecting Lesnar to continue on his own without Heyman as a babyface is going to ruin him and expose once again how tremendously horrible he is on the mic.
 
This would be very bad business. Either keep him a heel, or turn both Lesnar AND Heyman face together.

Turning Heyman and Brock would work, Heyman has proved that he can be just as effective cutting more crowd pleasing promos as he is doing heat seeking stuff, if anything it might be a smart move as his character could do with freshening up as the whole gloating about his beast and Brock being the one in twenty one and one is getting old.
I actually think Roman Reigns has been more than adequate on the mic lately, now they've seen the error of their ways and dropped the horrible cheesy Cena style scripts his promo-work has actually been pretty solid the past few weeks, at least in my opinion anyway, to be honest I don't really get why fans are hating on Roman so much other than the smarks are sore hes being pushed more than Bryan and of course some fans just think its the cool thing to do in the same way its seen as cool to boo Cena.

I agree. Pushing Roman is something everyone wanted, but really only a few turned on him when he started cutting shit promos, the rest just did it because it was cool to do. I think it's too soon for him, because of his poor promo ability, and I would like to see him expand on his moveset as well, and I don't think doing all that stuff as world champion is a good idea, BUT I don't simply hate the guy because he's getting pushed either. I think he should be down in the trenches, but he's not, he's headlining wrestlemania this year and I think THAT is a mistake, but again, I don't blame Roman Reigns for this. I think he's doing his best and he is making improvements and doing everything he can and should, he just needs time, nothing more.
 
Lesnar on the other hand is much more limited in what he can do on the mic. Reigns is learning, it's too late for Lesnar. He needs Heyman and would flop as a face without him unless he got another voice to cut promos that could at least not drop the ball once separated from Heyman.  On his own, as a voiceless beast, he might be satisfactory, but he wouldn't have the success as a face he would have had with Heyman or the like speaking for him.
 
At least, not in my opinion.

Quote From Jim Ross Website

The star of the show and the hottest commodity in WWE right now was Brock Lesnar who made an IMPACT for the ages. Monday night was one night that I was pleased to not be the "Voice of Monday Night RAW" any longer. I've taken enough ass whippings on TV to last a life time and having Brock get physical with yours truly isn't on my bucket list.


Well giving Michael Cole an F5 is a clear sign he's now going to be a babyface.

The only downside was JBL and Booker playing dead. They had the flimsy announcer desk tipped onto them that usually falls apart from someone blowing on it.

Be interesting to see how Brock is brought back in time for Summerslam.

You'll have someone reinstate Brock to help deal with The Authority.Possibly Vince appears wanting to save his show?

As much as everyone would love Shane O to return to do such a thing it won't happen.

Certainly wished He would give him a second one just to make sure he stays F5'd
