  1. So with Kevin Owens vs. Brock Lesnar on the table for WM32 there are a few ways this can go about, this a sure match that can steal the show at Wrestlemania if done right and it's main event worthy. I'm talking Brock Lesnar vs. Kevin Owens WWEWHC at Wrestlemania with Owens going in as champ, it could be Brock too but Owens would be an even better shocker.

    This can begin at the last Raw of 2015 where after Sheamus successfully defends his title against Reigns at TLC the authority and him agree to have another title match the end off 2015, but it's not with Reigns, it's from the winner of a Battle Royal to open the show. The final 3 are Owens, Reigns and the new IC champion Dean Ambrose who Owens will lose the title from at TLC, and in a shocker Owens wins. The Authority approaches Owens backstage on him joining them and lying down for Sheamus but he refuses turning face in the process.Then during the match despite distractions from The New Day and The League of Nations, Ambrose and Reigns assist Owens and Owens win the title. Everything goes nuts as fuck and the rough year for WWE ends in a good high note.

    Owens defends his title at the rumble against Sheamus and then the League will pursue a new new feud with Reigns and Ambrose, that'll make them all look strong back and forth because something good has to come from the League of Nations faction. At the rumble match, Brock Lesnar returns and wins, setting up Lesnar vs. Owens, main event. Reigns and Ambrose will take on the League at Mania in a handicap match.

    Now who wins? Well the championship that's a hard one, the League should win at Mania to make them over and strong. What do you guys think about this?
  2. Kevin Owens isn't established enough to face Lesnar yet. WWE books based on the marks, not the smarks, so it wouldn't make sense if you think about it.

  3. I don't see this happening, to be honest.

    Sure, I'd have nothing against KO vs Lesnar happening at WM, but the thing is, I don't see either KO or Lesnar heading into WM 32 as a WWE-WHC. I could see Lesnar winning the Rumble, though and then heading to WM 32 to regain his title in a match against Reigns.
    Either Lesnar regains the title, or Reigns turns heel to retain, or Vince's wet dream happens and Reigns retains CLEAN as a sheet and gets booed out of the AT&T Stadium.

    On the other hand, the way you would book this match to go down is something I could see happening at WM 33... With KO being the WWE-WHC and Lesnar being the challenger. (Also, the hometown hero since it's being speculated WM 33 will be held in Minnesota)
  4. Yeah Vince doesn't really care anymore about fans anyway, you're probably right.
  5. Except it isn't "on the table" unfortunately, as Meltzer and PWInsider both reported a couple of days ago that it isn't even being seriously discussed by management at this time. Big Dave further went on to say that Brock hasn't even been told who his Wrestlemania opponent is yet, and that none of his sources seem to know who it is either.

    I kind of share Dave's other thoughts on the manner as well, which is that if it's gonna happen next year, they need to start going ahead and positioning Kevin Owens for it by having him go on a tear. Stop having him walk out on matches and start having him hurt people again. It's the only way he's gonna start looking like a credible enough threat for Brock Lesnar. (And no, it shouldn't be for the championship, at least not at WM32.)
  6. If the match were to happen, I would see it happening more like this...It would end up not being the main event, or for the WWE title and Owens would definitely stay heel. But the way it would get started is Lesnar and Owens would both be in the Royal Rumble. Lesnar comes in early, and dominates the entire time. Owens comes in late (maybe 30) and ends up eliminating Lesnar. Brock is super pissed, goes back in and F5s Owens, and Owens eventually gets eliminated as well. On Raw Owens calls out Lesnar, but gets Paul Heyman. The 2 go back and forth with words. At Fastlane, Owens is in an IC title match against somebody. The ref gets knocked and in comes Lesnar, who ends up costing Owens the title. Next night on Raw they set up the match.

    But that won't happen, I said it before and i'll say it again. Lesnar is going to be in the main event tittle match at Wm32. He's gonna win RR and face Roman Reigns. I don't see it being any other way. I think they've been holding out on Daniel Bryan, so he can make his return to face Kevin Owens at Wm32 to get a chance to regain his vacated IC title.

  8. I agree the set-up would probably work best during the Rumble match, but I see it in the opposite way - Kevin Owens comes in as the iron man of the match and has fun eliminating people for a short while, and then Brock Lesnar's music hits and he tosses Owens out. If this moment happens when the ring has already managed to fill back up a little, then Brock tosses all of those folks out as well (although the moment works far better if a cocky and confident Owens is in the ring alone when Lesnar's music hits, since he now would have to deal with the baddest man in the WWE all by his lonesome.) Then after Brock has fun eliminating every next participant who comes out one at a time, Owens eventually sneak attacks Lesnar from behind and assaults him with a steel chair and wears him down enough to the point so that when Brock makes it to his feet, his attention is so focused on a snickering Owens leaving up the aisle way that it allows someone the time to come up behind him and eliminate him by surprise (ala Goldberg at the '04 Royal Rumble.) Build from there.

  9. I could agree with that. Especially since costing someone to be eliminated after already being eliminated is a total heel move.
