  • Cowboy Doug Asks: What do you think of Roman Reigns turning heel and facing the undertaker at Wrestlemania 31?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Look forward to it if it goes down. Done correctly it could make Reigns a huge star on the heel side and then, subsequently, as a huge, fan favorite. 



I hope the plan is for them to have a match, but what happened between them at the Royal Rumble was totally ignored on Raw.

I suspect Undertaker will turn up at Fastlane to set it up, as when Reigns eliminated him Jerry Lawler made a point of saying he doesn't think it's over between these two.

Reigns should become the second person to defeat Taker at Mania as it makes perfect sense.

You have to turn him heel at that point. He beats Taker at WM, you can forget about that man ever getting cheered again.

Undertaker came across as the heel. He's pissy because Reigns chucked him out of the Royal Rumble match so he comes and interferes in business that doesn't concern him and then lays out the babyface who didn't provoke him.

I hated the segment. I know as fans we have to suspend disbelief but the idea that a fairly cripled 50 odd year old part timer would ever get the better of Reigns is still extremely hard to buy into.

Roman is surely handing him his second Mania loss.....

You do have to suspend your disbelief, as a legendary figure who has spent all of his career being near unbeatable The Undertaker will continue to dominate until he retires, having him appear vulnerable or acknowledging his age and broken down condition would kill his mystique and big star aura, not to mention his drawing power. You have to believe that whoever faces The Undertaker will probably not beat him, that way if they do it has massive shock value. If you have the mindset that the older veteran talents should get beaten up by the younger guys by that logic Goldberg should have been thrown around and battered by Rusev.

I enjoyed the confrontation and hopefully this will see Roman work as a heel at least for a short time. I like the whole Big Dog vs the original Big Dog for control of the yard angle.

I guess smackdown dodged a bullet as it was fairly obvious he was going to hand out an asswhoopin on team smackdown if they lost at survivor series, but then... well I guess in his old age, he forgot about that.

There's rumours spreading that there will be some kind of stipulation added to this match, but I really can't think of what other than a no holds barred type of thing, or even a no dq match, which would obviously just lead to outside shenanigans. 

As for the match itself, I expect it to be ok, nothing special, and I do expect RR to go over.

Stipulations eh so either, No Holds Barred, Hell in a Cell, Buried alive or Casket match.

I can't see them doing a 2 out of 3 Falls or a Normal Cage match, Strap Match or any other gimmicks (Tables, Ladder, TLC etc).

Or maybe the Stip is If Taker Loses he must Retire gone For good Finished HoF'd and all. If Reigns Loses he must......I dunno.....not wear that stupid vest anymore or something

Roman Reigns needs to turn heel, as he just can't get over as the top face that WWE are desperate for him to be, but that's only part of the problem. He lacks experience, has limited in-ring talent, no mic skills, no charisma, can't draw, hasn't moved on from The Shield, hasn't earned anything, gets handed everything, and gets shoved down our throats, even after getting suspended for failing a drugs test, and all because he has the muscular look that Vince McMahon and Triple H love, and because he has a large influential family in this business, that includes The Rock, a legend and WWE's connection to Hollywood, he's buried so many talents that are better than him, that deserve his spot, and that is why Reigns gets so booed. You can't explain that to the clueless, ignorant, lazy, disrespectful, WWE PG brats, that adore him, though, because they just insult you, because they cannot dispute it. So, turning him heel isn't gonna change that. But, it would be a start.

And everything I said about Roman Reigns is why The Undertaker deserves better at Wrestlemania. The Undertaker should not lose any more Wrestlemania matches, and certainly not to Roman Reigns. Reigns is not worthy of being 1 of 2 in 23-2. It should be 24-1. Actually, it should've been 25-0. I hope this isn't The Undertaker's last match, either, because he deserves a more worthy final opponent, than Reigns.

Expect a ton of conjecture regarding the conclusion/finish of the Reigns vs Taker bout at WM Orlando. I still see a heel turn and Reigns wins via 'cheating' to at least to gain an unfair advantage OR Taker wins and Roman then destroys The Deadman afterwards and leaves Taker selling.

Bottom line is that Reigns has to come out of Wrestlemania with momentum as this match is more about Roman evolving than anything else.   ‚Äč



The important thing I agree is for Reigns to have the momentum, but it has to be from an heel turn.

Beating a future HOF guy who's made Mania his event for three decades is the exact guy and occasion for a big overdue turn.

Would be shit if Roman only won by cheating with a low blow or something though.

All of those points are ireleevent as he is improving every week

That is on creative not Roman

Loads of top guys after a welness violation go back to the spot they left Jeff Hardy got the Title less than 12 months after his Wellness violation

And all the ones who had connections but never made it to the ME, Ted DiBiase Jr, Cody Rhodes, Rosey, Curtis Axel. Connections doesn't equal success necessarily

Who else buried talents in the past *deep breath* The Rock, Stone Cold, Hulk Hogan, Triple H, HBK, Nash, Goldberg, The Bella's, Big Show, Ultimate Warrior, Lugar, CM Punk, Lesnar, Taker, The list goes on.


I do agree Reigns should be a heel as he has the look perfect for it, but he is just part of the same old tried and true method for building top guys that has been used for decades
