The superstar shake up has changed what many of us might have hoped for and might have made plans for things we still hope for.
One major rumor is that Brock Lesnar is going to hold the title until Wrestlemania. Oh, that is so not thrilling. I don’t care that his rumored opponent is Roman Reigns. What I do care is a guy who shows up a few times a year and who has been around for years is going to hold the Universal Championship for a year. Brock Lesnar does nothing for me these days. Suplex, suplex, suplex, suplex, suplex, suplex, F5, match over. The young Lesnar was amazing to watch. This Lesnar is just a guy who makes a lot of money and works a few dates. He probably won’t even defend the title at every PPV. Meanwhile, other guys get to essentially sit on the midcard. Looks like the Intercontinental Championship is going to be the primary Championship.
The Shield is back on the same show together but will they actually get back together? Rumblings say probably not. They are all doing well as singles competitors but maybe we’ll get to see them come together here and there.
What is going on with The Club? Finn Balor looks like he may never join them unless he turns heel which probably won’t happen. He was a heel on the Indy scene and a good one at that.
Jinder Mahal is supposedly going to get a push. Oh yay, he’s so not exciting. Smackdown has better talent to push up the roster and Jinder Mahal isn’t one of them, but I don’t work for WWE so, whatever.
Will Bray Wyatt bring in a new family? He doesn’t need to, but it’s better for his character to have that cult following. Hey, here’s a good idea bring in Sister Abigail. We’ve only been teased with her for years now. It’s getting to the point where I’m tired of hearing her mentioned.
We’ll see what the next few months hold. Please don’t let Lesnar hold the title for a year, please!!!!
