JR Blog: Daniel Bryan/Wrestlemania 31 Main Event, Roman Reigns, Lesnar/WWE Longterm


Jim Ross checked in with a new blog before Raw on Monday, here are some highlights.

on Daniel Bryan/Wrestlemania 31 Main Event
Can’t help but think that as much buzz that is surrounding WWE’s Daniel Bryan that there is no way that WWE won’t use DB in he WWE Title picture at WM31. I’m not sure how WWE are going to get there, which actually makes watching their weekly TV more compelling, or the end game but Bryan is too hot to not put him in the title picture to make the outcome more unpredictable. I am not a big proponent of a multiple person, main event at WM31 for the WWE Championship but having a three or four man match may have to be the way to go considering the lay of the creative landscape currently in WWE. This is all TBD, I assume. IMO and from talking to my wrestling fan friends, Daniel Bryan is the most compelling talent on the WWE roster right now along with Brock Lesnar.

on Roman Reigns
This scenario certainly doesn’t eliminate Roman Reigns from title consideration and I still think that Heyman and Reigns makes for an interesting combination that has multiple win-win components. I also l like the combination of Heyman and Rollins.

on Lesnar/WWE Longterm
Lesnar’s long term career in WWE is still in question at this time and will remain so until he decides where he wants to hang out his shingle after WM31. There is still ample MMA talk regarding Brock as UFC would obviously love to have him back and Brock Lesnar in Bellator would be a huge coup for that organization so Lesnar has multiple options and all, one would assume, for significant cash.

on Bryan vs. Lesnar
Because some have asked, yes, Bryan and Lesnar could have a great match in any environment and those that think that DB’s size is an issue have likely ever had their butt kicked by someone smaller than them. Bryan is the best in ring performer WWE has and that statement alone tells me he can ave a strong match with virtually anyone on the roster.
