It comes as no surprise that the WWE are grooming Roman Reigns for a very big 2015; where he is widely expected to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
There were doubts over Roman Reigns in his early Shield days as Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins were seen as the two men who would compete for the number one role in the WWE; but his impressive look and immense popularity has resulted in Reigns leapfrogging his former teammates and will be the number one star in the company by this time next year.
If you’ve actively been following the WWE as well as keeping up with all of the dirt sheets, then you will be aware of the fact that Roman Reigns is set to headline WrestleMania 31 where he is scheduled to become WWE World Heavyweight Champion; where The Beast Brock Lesnar will share the spotlight.
The plan is for Reigns to defeat Brock Lesnar, defeating the one behind the one in 21-1 is no small feat and Reigns is the man tipped for stardom; the current chosen one in the business and he will most likely be capturing the gold on that night; whether he leaves California with the championship is a different story.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter have released more updates surrounding the blockbuster clash and what the plan for Roman Reigns is right now.
It seems as if Brock Lesnar will remain as WWE World Heavyweight Champion until at least WrestleMania so he will be billed as this unstoppable monster that just cannot be dethroned; as we saw with John Cena’s effort at SummerSlam.
The current thought process is that Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will not be crossing paths at all, they won’t be in the ring together and they won’t talk about each other until the official build up towards their main event at WrestleMania 31 begins.

The WWE want to build WrestleMania 31 around Roman Reigns, much like they did with WrestleMania XXX and Daniel Bryan; so there’s a valid reason as to why they’re avoiding an earlier clash between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. Reigns taking on Lesnar before WrestleMania wouldn’t have the same exciting feeling towards it, and a loss for Reigns would be unimaginable.
The same does apply to Lesnar though, if Lesnar is to lose to Reigns or anyone else for that matter; the fact that he ended the streak and destroyed John Cena won’t seem as impressive as it is; having Reigns capturing his first singles title on the biggest stage in professional wrestling would be a perfect moment for him and for the fans.
Roman Reigns has been in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship picture before, at Money in the Bank and at Battleground so it looks as if Reigns will be kept as far away as possible from the title picture, until January at least.
The Royal Rumble takes place in January and after his impressive outing at the last Rumble; he is expected to win this time round and that victory will officially begin the Road to WrestleMania and the road to Roman Reigns becoming the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
