WWE: Could Seth Rollins be about to cash in at WrestleMania XXXI?

Football News

The biggest wrestling event of the year is just over one week away and already rumours are swarming social media. 

The latest one revolves around Brock Lesnar and states that the former UFC Champion could be set to retain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship over Roman Reigns in this years main event. 

This leak comes from Reddit user MetFans4Ever who has become reputable in the wrestling world for knowing outcomes of matches before they happen. He states an insider in the company as his source. 

MetFans4Ever usually leaks WWE pay-per-view results a few minutes before the pay-per-view starts, and has around a 100% record when it comes to these, but the user only ever puts the result, not how the person will win the match. 

If his latest claims are correct though there are bigger ramifications beyond the main event. We could see a cash in at Wrestlemania.

Circumstances leading to cash-in

If Brock does sign a new deal with WWE then it is likely he will retain because this was always thought to be the plan before contract talks stalled in recent months.

The fans haven't taken to Roman Reigns as well as they have done to his former team mates Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, and it still seems too soon for Reigns to pick up the biggest championship in the business. 

Rollins arrival

This is where Rollins comes in. If he wins his match against Randy Orton, or the match is pushed further down the card, then it will give Mr Money in the Bank enough time to recover and come out at the end of the show. 

Roman Reigns will still come across as looking strong, but Brock Lesnar will continue his unbeatable persona. If John Cena couldn't defeat him and The Undertaker failed at last year's Wrestlemania, it makes it highly unlikely that Reigns will. 

This way Brock Lesnar will be weak after a match just like he was at Night of Champions last year when Rollins ran out to deliver a curb stomp. Lesnar was down for the count and this could be the only legitimate way WWE could see Brock beaten for the title. 

Heyman's role

There was also a lot of teasing late last year concerning Paul Heyman and his allegiance to the WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

Last year Heyman had to focus his attention on Cesaro after Lesnar left him, and this year could see Heyman decide that he wants to turn the "future of the WWE" Seth Rollins into his guy - turning on his Beast Incarnate in the process.

With just over a week to go rumours and speculation are rife, WWE know that the second Wrestlemania on the network has to deliver. After the shock ending of the streak and Daniel Bryan's triumph last year, somehow WWE have to go one better with this years extravaganza.
