We all know Reigns is winning this one. We all know nobody is sure if Lesnar is going to re-sign with WWE for after WM. We all know Reigns is going to have a decent length title run off the back of this win and we all know he's going to continue getting booed out of the buildings.

It's almost like the booked Batista vs Orton on purpose... I'm tellin'ya this has Miracle on Bourbon Street Part 2 written all over it. Unless they figure shit out of Strowman tonight to give him a clear main event caliber match at mania, I'm going with Strowman being inserted into this match to make it a triple threat.

Hate to break it to ya, but it's not happening. Beef was only a stepping stone to the inevitable clash of titans that we're getting now. The only purpose for Braun's build over the past few months was to put Roman over. Braun gets built up as a monster, taking out pretty much the whole Raw roster, then Roman comes in, conquers the monster, and looks strong going into Wrestlemania.

It's why WWE gave us AJ/Nak. They gave us a match we wanted and in return they got to book Lesnar/Reigns.

Of course Lesnar is going to resign. We've been down this road once already. He's not going to give up the easy money and the easy schedule.

I concur, Reigns will have a lenghty run with the belt. He will get booed out of arenas every single week, but ole' Vinny Mac doesn't care. His guy is at the top of the company getting a constant reaction every week (yes, getting booed is seen as a positive in this case). But to keep the fans happy, they'll have the Smackdown champ as somebody who everybody will cheer for (Styles, Nak, etc.).

So did Brock legitimately no-show the event last night or was that just a work? Was there an issue with his plane/weather or something like that, was he just being a douche? Atm, I'm leaning towards this being a work, that this was always the plan, that Lesnar wasn't actually scheduled to be there, and advertising him was just a ploy to help Reigns get over, and if so it worked brilliantly.

Will be 100% storyline. It makes him more heelish and gets Roman some babyface response. I did legit think it was shitty of him though to be in Las Vegas and choose to spend the night with Dana White, instead of being backstage supporting the brand he's the leader of.
 
Quote Roman Reigns is out to the ring next. He says the truth is Brock Lesnar isn't here tonight, because something happened and he didn't show up. Reigns says Lesnar is an entitled piece of crap who hands behind his contract. Reigns criticizes Lesnar for no-showing so close to WrestleMania. Reigns says he makes every date WWE books, and he was born in this business. He says he doesn't respect Lesnar and "I damn sure don't fear that bitch." Reigns walks off.
 
I didn't think the promo was that good, just better than it normally is from Roman.
 
He's mentioned many times his family lines and plenty of guys Brock has fued with such as Cena, have mentioned his schedule, so nothing new was being said. It was repetitive.

Sadly Vince doesn't care about Roman's poor fan reactions, as mentioned he uses the excuse that any reaction is still a positive thing, they will use the Cena tactic of saying nobody provokes more 'emotion' from the crowd than Roman Reigns when truth is hes getting booed unmercifully.

Vince wants Roman as the poster boy and that's all that matters, the fact that he gets booed and that Rusev, AJ Styles, New Day, Elias and others are all selling more merchandise than him doesn't appear to matter either.

I do like Roman, hes a good worker and has evolved his all round game into a very solid main event calibre talent, every match hes in always feels like a big deal, but it doesn't matter fans still see him as the corporate creation and its now viewed as cool to boo him much like it was with Cena. Its a shame because Reigns has worked hard and doesn't have the gaping holes in his game that Cena always had.

I do wish WWE had gone with Strowman to win at Elimination Chamber to face Brock Lesnar. They have done a good job of establishing Braun at the top and he has currently never been more dominant and unlike Reigns is getting the desired reaction. They should press pause with Reigns, flip him heel and let him get over organically before turning him face again, in the meantime put everything behind Strowman.

At this point I'm not even convinced they need to flip Reigns heel. I think the best thing they could do to Reigns is put him on the back burner, and job him out for a while, and make it out to look like he's being held down. If he's low on the card, no one talks about his stuff to the point where the haters start to forget about him, and then he comes back, he should be fine. 

A heel turn is an easy fix, and sometimes it's the only way to get people interested, but if they can avoid it, then they might as well.

As for Strowman, I still see him being interjected into this match shortly before WrestleMania. He's the biggest, most over babyface on the show. Keeping him away and putting him into a feud with Elias would be a huge disservice to all the time, work, and effort put into making either one of them last year, and both of them deserve better.

Sounds silly, I know. If they're both so good then they should be able to do well together, but they're both in a shakey part of their rise to stardom. They both deserve to have a bigger name to work with to give them the rub and to keep building them, because neither one of them is in the least bit stagnant and their reactions are just getting better and better all the time. Putting together all but assures that one of those guys momentum will come to a screeching halt. 

They spent all this time and effort to make Strowman main event ready, they even flipped the guy babyface. This isn't a case as some might say of him being pushed as a monster heel just to be fed to the top star Cena-style. As literally the most over babyface on Raw, and with a main event that has one massively rejected babyface, and a very hated heel facing off where the fans have no one to root for, Strowman saves the match, preserves the main event, and damn well might save the PPV and the weekend of the biggest money weekend of WWE's year. It simply has to happen, anything less would be bad business.

If, and that's a big if, they continue with this mindset that Brock hides behind his contract and that Roman has wrestling in his blood, then it might just work in his favour.

I'm not sure about long term though, as if Roman becomes the champ, then there will be a long line of fan favourites who will face off against him. But if they at least garner an organic interest from fans in this Lesnar angle, then i'm all for it.

Quote RAW opens up with show GM Kurt Angle coming down to the ring to kick off the night right away. He talks about his upcoming mixed tag match with Ronda Rousey against Kurt Angle and Triple H. He says he won't be sorry for what he does to Triple H at 'Mania. He moves on to the topic of the Universal Title, and says that Brock Lesnar didn't show up tonight -- maybe because he isn't feeling well, or had travel issues, or just didn't feel like it. Roman Reigns comes out to interrupt.

Reigns walks down to the ring and cuts a promo trashing Lesnar for not showing up to work again. He says if anyone else, like Kurt, him, or the fans, didn't show up for work -- they'd be fired. He says Brock is "Vince's boy," and this is Vince's fault. He tells Kurt he knows he's just the middle man here, and Vince is in charge. Reigns says he walked by Vince in the back, and Vince didn't have the courtesy or respect to tell him what's going on tonight. Reigns says it's one thing to be disrespected by Vince McMahon.

Reigns heads to the back and the camera follows him behind the curtain to the gorilla position. Reigns walks right over to Vince, who is at a table with the headset on. Shane McMahon is sitting next to Vince, and he gets between Vince and Reigns. Reigns gets in Vince's face, and Vince says to go to commercials so they can talk in private.

We go to Renee Young who says things have settled down between Vince and Reigns. Reigns walks out of Vince's office, but ignores Renee n the way out. Vince walks out and tells Renee that Brock Lesnar is not "his boy," he's his own man. Vince says he didn't intend to disrespect Roman, but he gave it to him straight. He reminded Roman of a phrase that his cousin The Rock used to say - "know your role and shut your mouth." Vince says Brock has special privileges, but he's earned them, and he's motivated by competition in the ring and the octagon. Vince assures that next week Brock Lesnar will be in the house, and Lesnar will defend the Universal Title against Reigns at WrestleMania. He adds that due to what just happened, Roman Reigns is temporarily suspended. Vince heads back into his office.
 
Bad business decision for them two weeks in a row to short change their fans, by false advertising Brock turning up.
 
Why is Shane backstage? He's a Smackdown guy, but we won't hold out breath at it being explained why he's helping a so called rival show.
 
Roman came out with same old, repeating what he's already said and many others that have fueded with Brock have said before him.

The Roman Reigns story has been good, actually. It's working for him, if marginally.
