• As was noted over the past couple of days, WWE is tentatively penciling in Roman Reigns taking on Brock Lesnar as their WrestleMania 34 main event. Many have wondered how the company can push the match out so far as the original speculation was that it would happen at Summerslam.

  • One rumor making the rounds is that Reigns will be moved over to Smackdown after WrestleMania, which would not only shake up the roster but keep him away from Lesnar for an extended period of time.

  • In terms of movement between Raw and Smackdown, sources report that WWE is strongly considering moving Reigns to the blue brand because of John Cena’s anticipated absence and Vince McMahon hinted at this during a recent conference call, specifically calling out seeing Reigns on Smackdown.

  • We’re also hearing that there are multiple WWE officials who feel Reigns “can be the next Rock”, and are drawing parallels to their careers, especially early on. Reportedly these officials remain unfazed at Reigns’ negative reaction, pointing out that the Rock also was unpopular with fans before he exploded into a star.
