Quote The Rock and Roman Reigns also appeared on last night’s Rumble post-show with Tom Phillips. Rock talked about how he came to Philadelphia to support his family. Reigns addressed WWE World Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar and said he’s going to heal up and then study some tape. Reigns said he has one goal for WrestleMania 31 – to walk out as the new champion. Rock said Reigns is going to whoop Lesnar’s ass at WrestleMania and become the new champion.

It was announced that Lesnar will respond to Reigns live on tonight’s RAW.


It's a shame Raw is cancelled because them two in an in ring segment would have been gold, especially with the crowd reactions.

If Brock is signing back up again E should keep it as secret as possible to avoid spoiling the WM 31 main event.

If Brock does sign back up he should be kept with the title.

Their Raw face to face sitdown segment was really well done with Heyman going through how well he knows family member of Roman Reigns.

Quote From Jim Ross Website

What if Reigns shockingly aligned himself with Paul Heyman and the two of them conspired to beat Lesnar at WM31? Stranger things have happened. 


I'd hate that because I like the rarity by wrestling standards of a partnership looking strong with no sign of one of them turning on the other.

The live crowd will pop like crazy when Brock does his usual multiple German suplexes spot.

People keep talking about Reigns and Heyman aligning at the WrestleMania match and then Reigns and Lesnar doing a double turn. The story has been blown at this point though, and wouldn't be a surprise, but had people kept a lid on it, Vince probably would have gone with it, and it would have been spectacular because the climate is right for that to go off HUGE.

The fact of the matter is Reigns NEEDS a mouth piece like Heyman or Whoever? He is terrible on mic and needs someone to help him until he gets more comfortable on it.

It's likely to take him a while, because he'll probably end up having nerves now because he's been heckled so much over it.
 
I really think if Vince were smart, and he actually cared about Reigns long term career, he would book Reigns to lose an upset match ASAP and bust him down to jobber status, and repackage him as Adam Rose's bunny, only this time people actually KNOW he's Adam Rose's bunny, and start publically humiliating him and send him on a LONG losing streak, BUT in compensation, give him mic time, tons and tons of mic time, where people make fun of him, and he has to (unsuccessfully) try to defend himself with witty banter, but give his oponents the final word where they bury him.
 
At the end of his time jobbing, they start giving him wins, better lines, (that with all that practice, and the pressure of not having to worry about 'looking strong' he ought to have improved drastically, much like Daniel Bryan did after getting beat in 18 seconds by Sheamus and then stuck in the comedy team with Kane in anger management and team hell no and having to hug it out as a rib), booking him strong again, have the commentators build him up that he never deserves to be humiliated by the authority like he was, and now it's time for him to get his retribution. By Royal Rumble of next year he could actually get built to be a guy that people WANTED to see win the Rumble and go on to win the title at WrestleMania.

A double-turn is the smart route to go here but having Reigns align with Heyman is too predictable, I wouldn't do that unless Lesnar decides he is done with WWE post-Wrestlemania as Heyman will then need a new charge but I would leave it until after Mania. Personally I think Reigns would be a better fit for the Authority kind of making the group into Evolution 2015.
If Reigns turns heel and its looking likely he'll have to they should book him in a match with Daniel Bryan at Fast Lane kind of as a fuck you to the fans when Reigns batters him, would be promo gold as well with Bryan asking him how it felt to be completely rejected by the fans because they wanted him to win the Royal Rumble.
 
I'm actually looking forward to Reigns vs Brock as I enjoy larger power-based guys matches.

Totally agree, Heyman turns on nearly every guy he manages and has already done it at least once to Brock before.

I do too, when they actually work that way. Brock does, which always puts me at odds with him, because I can't stand the guy in every single other aspect, but god his matches are great when he's actually just picking guys up and tossing them around.
 
What I dislike though are strike-based matches. I'm burned out on the flippity shit, even though I've always enjoyed it to some degree or another, and I always appreciate mat based chain wrestling and submission style matches, but I never get to see good power-based matches, and always end up going back to the Steiner brothers and Legion of Doom.
 
Brock fits this mold, as did Kurt Angle when he was in the WWE, but really in the last 10 years there's essentially no one. Strangely enough Brodus Clay put on great powerbased matches that looked very strange when you expect him to work fatman style and instead he's catching everything and tossing them around like a sack of shit.
 
My biggest annoyance of all is when guys like Ryback, Rusev, and Big E don't go suplex crazy and slam happy in their matches and instead punch and kick and jump through the middle rope and come off the top rope like they're wannabe Shawn Michaels. Stop that shit! Take a clothesline and stand there and no-sell it and pound your chest like an animal. Stop flatbacking every dropkick, knock the guy to the side, or if you're going to sell it, do it big man style and wobble or at worst go to a knee, and make the guy do it a time or two more before you flatback it.
 
Roman Reigns has a cool set of moves, that if he were to just look at matches from guys like Bulldog, Scott Steiner, Hawk and Animal, even Bill fucking Goldberg got this style down well in WCW. Look intimidating, BE intimidating, show off your strength, sell on the run like Undertaker, and stop trying to be Eddie Guerrero, you're not a luchadore, you're not small, you're not at all like him in any way shape or form, Roman Reigns could easily learn everything he needs to know in order to get over with the fans by just copying everything Road Warrior Hawk ever did. Hawk knew when to no-sell, when to sell on the run, and went to sell everything, and how to look like a badass every step of the way, he gave promos that were simple but highly effective, and he was over like only the very best ever have gotten over.
 
My biggest worry about this match is that Lesnar blows big floppy donkey dick when it comes to leading a match, (which BTW, was quite hilarious to hear Steve Austin say that Lesnar needs to be kept from doing that because he can't) so when the two of them start trying to put a match together, they had better do it Randy Savage style and learn the match step by step like it's a dance, rather than WWF Veteran style where they go over next to nothing and just call it in the ring, and only plan a few high spots.

Quote From Jim Ross Website

I floated a fantasy booking idea that it would be intriguing for Reigns and Heyman to collaborate as it would be a jaw dropper and Heyman would be a great asset with Reigns especially in the finer points of Romans game including his verbal skills which I don't think are a long term issue whatsoever. I know Reigns has the instincts to communicate because I've heard him do it.  Fantasy booking is what many of us long time fans enjoy doing especially those of us that have actually done it in real life. It's no different than playing Fantasy Football ala DraftKings.com who are one of my podcast sponsors.


Heyman turning on Brock would be dumb. In realism terms he would be........

1) Turning his back on a legit badass he's known years, who's done UFC and earns him storyline wise good money for someone who's hardly around.

To........

2) Someone less experienced and who'd he be by the side of storyline wise all the time full time.

I don't deny the fued would be better if Roman had a mouthpiece (Zeb Coulter when is he back?) just not Heyman.
