    Man, if the next Lesnar v Reigns match is just 100 times as good as the WM match, it’ll be kind of okay.

    Agree it just goes to show you the people on the internet knows nothing about the WWE.

  • BiggEZ

    This should be it for Reigns. He’s received too many opportunities. If he doesn’t defeat Lesnar in this rematch, then he needs to get to the back of line and WWE presents Lesnar with a new challenger.

    For Brock Lesnar to walk out still WWE Universals Champion last night it should have given you some clue. So Brock Lesnar is going to do both WWE and UFC that pretty cool.

    As long as they confirm he’ll lose it then.
