WWE: What fans want to see at WrestleMania 31

WrestleMania XXX may now be over but attention is already turning to WrestleMania 31.

Maybe it's not in the positive way as many would want, but mainly due to the fact that Brock Lesnar conquered The Undertaker's 21-0 unbeaten streak not so long ago has resulted in fans being worried about what we may see at WrestleMania 31.

Fans might be worried about what may possibly occur in a years time but in reality, they shouldn't. One streak has ended but that won't stop the WWE from creating another spectacle and regardless of what has happened in the last few years, the next WrestleMania will create special aspects in itself.

But as of right now, nobody is sure as to what the plans are from WrestleMania. Of course, there are rumours circulating the web every single day which continue to change. But what do the fans want to see at the event? 

A number of questions do come up though, will The Undertaker be at the event? Will CM Punk ever step foot inside a WWE ring again and what will the future have in store for The Shield; will they still be together. There is still a year left to the big event but here are some of the matches the WWE Universe will want to witness at WrestleMania 31.

Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal

This battle royal has now replaced the Money in the Bank tradition which began years ago, and the inaugural battle royal resulted in Cesaro walking out the victor. Now that this match will occur at every WrestleMania pay-per-view for the foreseeable future, this match is practically a guarantee to happen and that is a great thing. This allows superstars that have just missed out on the card to compete in some capacity.

It doesn't really matter who enters, the ring will be filled with mid level talent and perhaps even lower, but the key aspects include Cesaro's omission, as he will hopefully be in the main event scene long before this event. I believe this should be between The Big Show and Rusev, both dominant giants, The Big Show is in the mould of Andre The Giant and was seen as an obvious choice, but a win here for Rusev would be a massive statement from The Bulgarian Brute - unless he is a lot more impressive and has a singles match on the night.

NXT Graduates competing at WrestleMania

NXT superstars have taken the main roster by storm, as an avid NXT follower ever since it's inception I know just how good it feels to watch the likes of The Shield, The Wyatt Family and Daniel Bryan succeed on the main roster long before they make an impact on the main roster. I don't think it will be an NXT dedicated match, but I believe current NXT superstars will make their main roster debuts soon and will have a match on that night. 

The names which come to mind include Bo Dallas, Tyler Breeze, Adrian Neville, The Ascension and the incredible Sami Zayn. Some of these superstars could and should have a match on the night to provide them with that experience of competing in front of such a large audience on such a magnificent night.

The Undertaker vs. Sting

Of course this match was going to appear, it will pop up in any WrestleMania 31 projected match card you see, and it's not for the wrestling. I will be the first to admit that it won't be the greatest of matches and it's a shame this match didn't happen years ago when both men could work well in the ring. Now that they've aged the match itself won't be good, but the spectacle itself, seeing Sting inside a WrestleMania ring standing opposite of The Undertaker would make every wrestling fans dream come true.

The result won't even matter, just to have the two legends go at it one final time would be an epic moment which would go down in history.

John Cena vs. Roman Reigns

It's difficult to say whether The Shield will still be together come WrestleMania 31, with recent reports suggesting that there are no current plans to split The Shield up they still could be together in a year. I'm going with the safer option and saying they won't be together, by which time Roman Reigns will climb the ladder as a singles face superstar and will have a massive singles match at WrestleMania. Fans suggest a Triple H showdown but he is already rumoured to be facing The Game towards SummerSlam.

Other fans want Reigns to challenge The Deadman but who better to take on as an up-and-coming superstar looking to make an impact, than the face of the company. This would allow Reigns to go over as a serious singles superstar and Cena's legacy won't be harmed at all, instead people will credit him for putting over the superstar touted to carry the WWE into the future.

Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro

Fans are still desperate to see a match between CM Punk and Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania, forget it. It's time the fans get over Punk's sudden departure as no man is bigger than the company and the WWE will still flourish without Punk. Daniel Bryan is on top of the world right now but there is an emergence of future big-name superstars, and the man who is shooting for the stars is new Paul Heyman guy, Cesaro.

Cesaro and Daniel Bryan are two of the best pure wrestlers in the company, immense technical ability you probably won't find in the WWE locker room will make a potential title match between the two something special to witness. Cesaro will hopefully be a main event superstar by then, and a mouth-watering clash between the two would result in an epic wrestling encounter between two of the company's finest.

The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar

Brock Lesnar is fresh coming off a massive victory - the biggest victory in wrestling history, by defeating The Undertaker at WrestleMania. Realistically, this makes him the most dominant superstar in the history of the WWE so superstars like Triple H, Batista and even smaller superstars in Daniel Bryan won't be able to match up to him on paper as he has ended the streak, something many have tried and failed to do. But if the WWE do want Lesnar on the card, which they definitely will as he will be a star attraction that night, he will have to face someone he hasn't faced regularly.

We've seen a John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar feud twice now, once when Cena was the up-and-comer and most recently when Lesnar returned to attack Cena. We've seen matches between Lesnar and Triple H and enough matches between The Undertaker and Lesnar. But there is one man that hasn't had a chance at redemption against Lesnar and that is The Rock. The Rock lost his WWE Championship to a young and hungry Lesnar years ago at SummerSlam and the two went their separate ways. Now a rematch would have the fans eyes glued to their television sets to watch this rematch more than ten years later.

Of course this isn't the full card, there will be plenty of other great matches on the night which will include the likes of Triple H, Randy Orton and Sheamus. Other things to want on the night include a good feud for Bray Wyatt, we want Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose in interesting feuds as well, and not thrown into any random match.
