WWE fans may get Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 32, but “Rock vs. Brock” makes more sense in terms of market value and fan excitement.
Vince McMahon and the creative team have all but assured us the main event at WrestleMania will involve the Beast Incarnate and the current WWE World Champion, but in a blink of an eye, we all know things change in the company.
You can thank poor booking and injuries have made it more than difficult to make major plans and create the best possible matchups for fans to savor and ratings to shoot through the roof.

It looks like Reigns and Lesnar are the best WWE can offer us unless Triple H decides to finally come out of “recovery” from the beating he took from Reigns at TLC and face his employee in a revenge match. Still, I am not sold this is the best thing for WWE and its fans in an attempt to increase ratings and forge ahead with a new and better WWE product.
As I have stated before in other columns, Lesnar never lost his title, as Seth Rollins entered the ring and stole the show, claiming the championship for himself. Now, with Paul Heyman in tow, there is someone who wants to reclaim what is rightfully his. But now, with WWE in such a state of confusion and Vince McMahon publicly pulling the marionette strings, will that happen?
It should, but will it happen? There have been many a time when everything falls in line and fans get the match they want to see, and boom! The rug is pulled out from underneath them. Will McMahon go Lucy Van Pelt on the WWE Universe and create another sad case of havoc, where fans boo the stars despite the fact that it is not their fault.
WWE must take advantage of the fact it has veterans available to step in and make a little magic in Big D. That includes The Rock and a match with Lesnar. A featured match like this, regardless of whether the company title is on the line or not is not the question. Giving us all the best possible result is the solution to a complicated problem.
What if The Rock appears at the Royal Rumble to come to the aid of his cousin, Reigns? The two superstars – Lesnar and Rock – stand in the ring facing each other and agree to meet face to face in Dallas.
The crowd goes wild in Orlando and Reigns, who still has his WWE World Title, faces Triple H in the co-main event at WrestleMania 32. It certainly is what is best for business.
Whether McMahon and his cronies see it that way is another story altogether.
