Bengaluru, Mar 12: This year’s Wrestlemania will witness Roman Reigns squaring off against The Undertaker.
The seeds of this one feud were planted at the Royal Rumble when Reigns eliminated Taker from the match. The Phenome returned on Raw after Fastlane to hit Reigns with a chokeslam to start the feud officially.
Now, The Undertaker is considered to be the greatest performer in the history of the sports entertainment.
So, it’s evident that almost none of his opponent gets cheered as the audience always wants to see him emerges victorious and especially when it comes to Wrestlemania which is his home turf.
So, many thought this would be the perfect time for the Big Dog to turn into a heel after much speculations going on with this.
But, reports from cagesideseats.com nixed the idea stating that the creative has not planned it, this way.
Now, despite what they think, it’s a fact that Reigns will be booed universally every time he has a face-off with the Deadman.
In fact, the crowd was chanting “Roman Sucks” during their confrontation at Chicago, last week.
So, we can imagine how it would sound when almost 70000 people at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando will boo this man.
Plus, this is the very first time that the crowd is actually thinking that Reigns has the chances of coming out victorious after the match. The fans might eat him alive if that happens on April 2nd.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Vince McMahon was the idea of this match for quite sometimes now who is seeing this match as 'passing the torch’.
The push for the three-time WWE World champion seems endless and it will continue even at Wrestlemania.
The boss might want to use the Undertaker match as Reigns’ biggest push considering that he will be inserted into the title picture once Wrestlemania is done.
Post-Wrestlemania season, the Universal championship match might see Brock Lesnar going up against the Big Dog.
