One thing that you got to love about WrestleMania weekend is the rumor mill regarding the event. Earlier in the week, the WWE Universal Championship between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar was expected to close out the show on Sunday.
Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer is in Orlando for all of the festivities going on around town. According to the famed reporter, the probable match to close out WrestleMania will be Undertaker vs. Roman Reigns.
My first reaction is what about Randy Orton? You know, the winner of the Royal Rumble? Then I calmed down and remembered that the Rumble winner hasn’t really been guaranteed the main event spot for several years now. Besides, the Orton/Wyatt feud has cooled down considerably.
WWE is notorious for changing their plans at the drop of a hat, however, Taker vs. Reigns getting the nod means that confidence is low in Goldberg vs. Lesnar being anything special. Goldberg probably can’t go more than ten minutes, and doing a squash match in Lesnar’s favor to get his heat back, is not a suitable scenario for the main event of WrestleMania. Continue reading →

We also saw Roman Reigns take on Bruan Strowman and Bayley defended the Women’s Title against Charlotte.

In a shocking turn of events, WWE announced they have suspended Roman Reigns for 30 days effective immediately due to a violation of the company’s talent wellness policy. This is interesting considering Reigns dropped the WWE title on Sunday at Money In The Bank.
WWE has spent the last 18 months positioning Reigns as the face of the company, which has been an up hill endeavor since fans haven’t taken to the 31-year-old former college football player.
WWE is using “The Club” for the new faction comprised of AJ Styles, Luke Gallows, and Karl Anderson. The name is a reference the trio’s time in as the Bullet Club, which is still a popular IP being used in New Japan Pro Wrestling and ROH.
OnBreaking Raw, Adam Kohn and I discuss whether or not “The Club” is a fitting name, the first step in a larger design, or just plain lazy. If you like what you hear please visit the official You Tube channel of Gerweck.net for more great pro wrestling content.

There are lots of questions to be answered with Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson waiting in the wings. Will Roman Reigns turn heel? Is it AJ Styles who goes to the dark side? How about the rumored main roster debut of Finn Balor? Can anyone say Bullet Club or Roman Empire?

Something interesting occurred at the end of last night’s WWE TLC pay-per-view. It wasn’t just that Roman Reigns lost another bid for the WWE title or that he snapped afterwards, beating up the League of Nations and absolutely destroying Triple H. It’s that the usual course of boos from the audience turned into a resounding chant of “Thank you, Roman.” Continue reading →
