Royal Rumble Plans For Roman Reigns, Why WWE Booked CM Punk To Win At TLC, Brock Lesnar



roman-reigns

- PWMania.com previously reported how WWE has big plans for Roman Reigns in the 2014 Royal Rumble match. It’s said that those plans right now are even bigger than anyone would have thought.

- Regarding how WWE booked CM Punk to win over The Shield at TLC, it’s said he had to win with both John Cena and Daniel Bryan already booked to lose. Plus, it created more drama for the eventual breakup of The Shield. At RAW, they had Roman Reigns get the win over Punk with the idea Reigns is eventually going to be the “real golden boy” since he has the look and sports background WWE officials like, as opposed to Punk and Bryan who will never 100% get past the size and look issues. They also felt Punk was protected from the loss by having the segment with Shawn Michaels, which people would remember more than the fact he was pinned.

- Regarding Paul Heyman’s tweet on Monday where he said he had a talk with Brock Lesnar about new WWE World Heavyweight Champion Randy Orton, it was just something to get people talking and there is nothing currently planned in that direction.

    I hate the way picks there big stars sometime. But I really hope Roman Reigns get a nice push and is a big star.

  • Jevonte Marquis Gore

    Ever since WWE decided to push Reigns,I’ve seen Punk,Bryan, and Dean Ambrose fans losing their shit.

  • Jevonte Marquis Gore

    I find it a little funny tho.

  • Waylon Mercy

    I forgot that Punk got pinned lol

  • bryan

    I like reigns. But not as much as i like ambrose and rollins. They’re more deserving. So i hope this roman reigns push blows up in the wwe’s face

  • Sunny

    I think Brock Lesnar vs Randy Orton for the wwe world heavyweight championship at Royal rumble will be fascinating to watch if it happens and I thought Brock Lesnar is more bigger superstar than Roman Reigns and wwe is planning big for Roman Reigns because he is the cousin of the great one The Rock

    • Ty Gibson

      If you wanna go with THAT logic, then why aren’t Tamina and The Usos (who all related to The Rock) getting huge pushes?

  • saulewright

    They push the look over the talent…what are they going to use to blame him for the low buyrates of the PPV he headlines?

  • Sir Will McCormick

    “It’s said that those plans right now are even bigger than anyone would have thought” I like Regins a lot. He definitely has the “it factor”. He’s captivating as hell to watch, but isn’t it a little early in his career to give him a Rumble win?

    • Grapes

      It’ll be Ryback all over again with this guy. Just watch. And I don’t know about a Rumble win but could possibly see him breaking Kane’s record for most eliminations in a match. Don’t want to see that happen though.

  • Padres4life

    he hasn’t even left the Shield yet and he doesn’t even have a solo gimmick, his own entrance music, and hasn’t had a solo feud yet, and he’s already going to be a main event star? this will backfire.

  • Richard Hagen

    Of course “The big Guy” of the group gets the push. Ambrose and Rollins will be left in the dust in a year.

  • Mr Slippyfist

    I’ve said not before o will say it again. Reigns does not have the IT factor. He is not Bobby Roode.

  • Umut Yarrow

    This reigns push is fucking annoying tbh
