It seemed clear that although the “Beast Incarnate” may have drawn his UFC career to a close – Brock Lesnar recently signed a new multi-year contract with WWE – arriving in California ready to hurt someone.
The match against Roman Reigns pitted a veteran warrior against a younger challenger. Reigns, the nephew of The Rock, came into WrestleMania 31 with great momentum after winning the Royal Rumble in January.
Within minutes of the match beginning, Brock had given Reigns his best shots, but found himself bleeding and unable to rattle the young upstart. Lesnar sent Reigns to “suplex city,” in what turned out to be one of the most aggressive main events in WrestleMania history.
Chaos ensued when Seth Rollins cashed in his ‘Money in the Bank’ opportunity to make it a three-way match, thinking that with Reigns and Lesnar both tired, he would stand every chance of getting a pinfall and stealing the World Championship. Seconds later the plan succeeded, and Seth pulled off one of the biggest upsets ever seen at WrestleMania!
The 31st Annual WWE extravaganza was a truly epic battle of pro wrestling titans. We can’t wait to see how Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns react to this upset on WWE TV in the days and weeks to come.
