WWE’s plan for Seth Rollins vs Brock Lesnar leading to Wrestlemania

After winning the 2019 Royal Rumble match, Seth Rollins earned the opportunity to go to WrestleMania and challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship.

Original plans for the Rollins vs Lesnar match heading into WrestleMania 35 were said to have involved Roman Reigns and his battle with leukemia as part of the storyline. However, plans have changed and WWE is going a different route in order to build the feud between Rollins and Lesnar.

On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about the Rollins vs. Lesnar match at WrestleMania. He noted that the plan now is for WWE to plant seeds of hope that Seth can beat Lesnar at Wrestlemania. The idea is that it will start out with Rollins not having any chance at defeating Lesnar. Then each week they will build up to the idea that Rollins has a genuine chance at defeating Brock at WrestleMania.

They will use promos from Paul Heyman to lay the foundation and slowly build up the hope that Rollins can overcome The Beast and become the Universal Champion.

However, it is still unknown how WWE will book the Universal Title match at Wrestlemania. The outcome can change at any time and depends on if Brock extends his contract with WWE or not. What we do know is that by the time Wrestlemania comes around, Seth Rollins will have a legitimate chance at conquering The Beast.

We will keep you updated as we get to know more regarding Wrestlemania 35.

    Thanks for elaborating on that.

    Legitimate chance…? It’s a scripted win/loss. There is no legitimacy here.

    I really struggle to see how they planned to use Romans illness as part of the build to this match. How the hell does that work exactly?
    Plus this whole can’t win/now has a chance build just does not work. Fans either believe Rollins will win due to the belief Lesnar is out of WWE or they believe it will be same crap different day and Brock retains.

    An were is your proof that Brock Lesnar is staying hypocrite. It been talking about for the longest time by WWE and everywhere you go. Brock Lesnar even show up at UFC 226 saying he want his title back oh wait you probably miss that part. He is done with WWE he only sign on because of Roman Reigns got sick otherwise Brock Lesnar wouldn’t even be Unverlasial Champion.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    No I go by what I actually see him say in front of the camera on Fox sports and ESPN why you go by some dirt sheet. I also heard Seth Rollins say on Raw that he was going to end Brock Lesnar pretty much Brock Lesnar is done after WM 35. Now we’re was it you read things have changed.

    So you are not going to post any evidence to support your claims that Brock lesnar has signed a contract for 2019 with ufc and also that he will be leaving wwe after WM then. What it boils down to is that this is only your opinion that’s based on nothing but theory conjecture and speculation but you will come into a public forum and and give your opinion as if it’s absolute fact but when someone asks you to produce a sorce or evidence to support your claims you immediately start throwing the dirt sheets word around. Also I have seen absolutely nothing on fox sports to support your claim that Brock has signed a contract for 2019 with UFC. Last I actually heard on Brock lesnar fighting DC in UFC was that the fight was up in the air and probably wasn’t going to happen. Also I can honestly see Brock sticking around in WWE for another few years as they pay him a ton of money.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    I not like you who needs the dirt sheet who believe everything the internet tells me. I go by history and by watching Brock Lesnar show up in UFC claiming he going to take back his UFC title.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    You are not been watching Fox sports this happen last year or you don’t watch Fox sports. Why you think he lost the Unverlasial Championship at Summerslam.

  • Adam

    Post a sorce and evidence that you have to back up your claim that lesnar has sighed with UFC for the most part of 2019 and also that brock is moving on after WM.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Well if you would know how to read and listen Brock Lesnar is sign to UFC though most part of 2019. He only sign on with WWE because Roman Reigns got sick. Both WWE and Brock Lesnar are moving on.

  • Adam

    So you have insider information to back up this claim do you that WM 35 will be brocks final match ? Or are you assuming that WM 35 it will be his final match. I’m sorry to put you on the spot but you do make a lot of claims based on theory conjecture and speculation. I personally think that lesnar isn’t going anywhere after WM even if he drops that strap to Seth Rollins. WWE pay lesnar an absolute boat load of money so why would he leave.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    It pretty much a Farwell tour for Brock Lesnar WM 35 will be his final match in the WWE.

  • StoneColdBeckyLynch

    Keep the title on Brock until AEW gets their TV show. Then we will see if they can keep up with this part time champ garbage.
