Jim Ross posted a pre-Fast Lane blog, here are some highlights:
Fully expect that the Sting-HHH confrontation Sunday at Fast Lane in Memphis will be a major production that will make us want to see the match between the two at WM31 even more. Yes, I expect some physicality and more on the WWE-WCW ‘rivalry.’
Hard to predict the Daniel Bryan vs. Roman Reigns bout which I feel is a good thing as WWE has done a effective job in quickly building this particular bout for Sunday. I can see either man winning but can also see chaos and controversy that somehow eventually gets both Reigns and Bryan in a main event role vs. Brock Lesnar come WrestleMania. One obvious question is where does Paul Heyman and/or Seth Rollins fit into all this discussion? They are both too immersed in this issue to not be involved in some manner whether it be Sunday or later. If forced and I had to pick one winner to meet Lesnar I’d guess WWE will go with Reigns but that’s merely a guess.
Much of what goes down in this match is related to whether Lesnar stays with WWE after WM31 or heads back to MMA. One scenario could see Heyman turn on Lesnar w/ Reigns winning w/o us knowing Heyman’s true intentions and then Rollins cashing in the MITB contract, w/ Heyman’s blessings, to help Rollins leave WM31 s the new champion.
Great exposure for WWE with the Seth Rollins/Jon Stewart exchange. Very nice, non scripted promo by Stewart who cut to the chase, made his points and got out in just over a minute. Simple, right?
