If you are still reading, you’ve been warned. Spoilers ahead.
At the Rumble, we got to see a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion crowned. Hunter Hearst Helmsley came out as the 30th entrant into the Rumble, and outlasted everyone else to win the championship, eliminating Reigns and then Dean Ambrose.
Now, many assume that this will be one more attempt to get Roman Reigns over, by having HHH leave his shovel at home and put Roman over in Texas. But…what if that is not in the card?
What if Rock meant more with his announcement, than just, say, guest hosting?
Let’s be honest. Rock and Hunter do have some unfinished business, based on the prior WrestleMania. And, considering that Vince loves a huge main event…would it get much bigger than Hunter versus Rock, for the WWE Championship?
I see this going one of three ways, honestly.
Option 1: Rock is just straight-up in the match. WWE pulls the plug and goes in a different direction with Roman for now.
Option 2: Rock is guest hosting,¬† and Roman Reigns is in the main event. But similar to what happened when Bret Hart main evented against Yokozuna, where Hulk Hogan issued an impromptu challenge and won the title, Roman gets hurt, or incapacitated, and Rock issues an impromptu challenge-and leaves Texas with the gold.
Option 3: Rock has nothing to do with the match in any capacity.
Honestly, number 1 and 2 make a ton of sense. Since the world already knows that The Rock will be at ‘Mania, it really doesn’t matter if he’s in that match, or any other match. He will be there, we will be entertained.
WNZ readers, do you think WWE pulls the plug on the Roman Reigns experiment? Do we turn the calendars back a decade or so and get a main event of Rock versus Hunter?
