This article could contain potential WrestleMania 31 spoilers, if you wish to avoid these please turn back now.
WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
The WWE have reportedly decided on the three top feuds they will be running with after WrestleMania 31; and these top three feuds will all involve championship titles.

Starting with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, if Roman Reigns is scheduled to defeat Brock Lesnar for the gold at WrestleMania then he is pencilled in to work a programme with current Mr. Money in the Bank; Seth Rollins.
There is also the possibility that these two may feud with Roman Reigns not being the champion, there is a chance Seth Rollins could cash-in his briefcase at WrestleMania and then Reigns will be the challenger in the singles feud which would also take Brock Lesnar off-screen for a while.
WWE UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP
The United States Championship will also play a role in a big feud, John Cena will be challenging Rusev at WrestleMania 31 and if rumours are to be believed then Cena will end Rusev’s unbeaten run and become the new United States Champion.
However, the two are still scheduled to feud over the title after WrestleMania this Sunday, so there’s the chance Rusev may remain victorious and then drop the gold to Cena after WrestleMania, or Rusev could lose at WrestleMania and defeat John Cena later to recapture the gold.
WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP
The odds are stacked against Bad News Barrett this Sunday with six other superstars gunning for his Intercontinental Championship, and in recent weeks Daniel Bryan has emerged as the favourite to capture the title and add some relevance and prestige back to the gold and at the same time, put superstars over who will move on to the main event scene.
The plan is to have a three-man feud post-WrestleMania for the championship, this will involve Bad News Barrett, Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler battling for the gold after WrestleMania 31.
To reiterate, these are the plans right now and the WWE can change plans at the last minute so these feuds aren’t confirmed right now, only rumoured.
Fast forward a whole year and WWE are also planning for WrestleMania 32, the event they want to break attendance records at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Currently they are discussing the possible main event they want to build the card around and now that Brock Lesnar has re-signed with the WWE, the plan is to have him in the main event again.
The Rock is the favourite option for WWE, if their schedules can allow it then WWE want Brock Lesnar taking on The Rock. The Great One mentioned in an interview earlier this week that he was open to the idea of working with Lesnar again.
The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar was also in the works for WrestleMania XXX but those plans didn’t come to fruition but he is also rumoured to be appearing at WrestleMania 31, could he celebrate with Roman Reigns? Or will he set up a clash with Lesnar? Only time will tell.
WWE has also had Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar bring up The Rock, John Cena and The Undertaker as potential matches should they fail to lure back The Rock. The Undertaker would need to defeat Bray Wyatt this Sunday – which he is scheduled to do – if he is to face Brock Lesnar again.
