Brian Alverez of the Wrestling Observer said he believes 100% Ambrose and Rollins will be the main-event of WrestleMania 35.

The original plan was suppose to be a Shield triple threat with Reigns vs Ambrose vs Rollins

All this is rumors right now, but how would people feel about Ambrose and Rollins main-eventing WrestleMania?.. I feel it would be a breath of fresh air not having Triple H, Undertaker, Brock Lesnar or some other part timer in the main-event

Last 4 main events at wrestlemania:

Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins in a Triple Threat match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Triple H (c) vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship
The Undertaker vs. Roman Reigns in a No Holds Barred match
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship

30 was Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton, and Batista. Before that we had 3 years of John Cena. They were really going to give Roman a 5th year in a row main eventing wrestlemania!? Not even John Cena had that many years in a row.

I'm going to ASSUME it'll be the women at this point. Likely Ronda and Charlotte, as rumored before... but everything's all up in the air.
Plus they're going to blow through this so quick.

I'd absolutely love seeing the current day stars in the spotlight. We all would. Most of the fans damn sure would. Especially saying this now with SHAWN MICHAELS RETURNING TO ACTION being the 18th biggest WWE news story right now, right behind "who attacked Aleister Black?"
Maybe a part of me thinks it's best to fantasy book Bryan vs Miz for the main event. I'm not sure who you'd throw against AJ Styles...

An Ambrose/Rollins main event would be great...even if we have seen this
feud before...simply with the roles reversed.

You guys remember that right? I mean I wasn't even around for it and I
remember it.

While I mean no disrespect to Roman Reigns in his current condition...
ending another Wrestlemania with the crowd not caring would be absolutely
terrible...and the fact it COULD be Ambrose & Rollins in that spot is kind
of bittersweet because I believe both men have had their own careers
stalled by being booked to stand next to Roman in a desperate attempt to
get him cheered.

Personally...I'd like to see Charlotte & Ronda main event a Wrestlemania...
but I will admit I'm biased towards the women & Charlotte in particular.

I'm a total Charlotte fanboy & I can admit that.

A.J Styles having the main event spot would be amazing...hell...honestly...
I'd have Seth win the Royal Rumble & challenge Styles for the World title...
but that's just how my brain works.

Styles vs. Rollins COULD be a 5 star match...and I want to see it before A.J
possibly retires.

Of course knowing the WWE...Vince will panic and give The Undertaker & HBK
the main event spot and we will all cringe as too has-beens try to relive past glories.

Styles vs. Rollins for the World title...
Ronda vs. Charlotte for the RAW women's title...
Ambrose vs. Strowman (Street Fight) for the Universal title...
Becky vs. Asuka for SDL women's title...
Nakamura vs. Joe vs. Bryan for the US title...
The Demon Balor vs. McIntyre for the I.C title...

That is what I'd be booking for Wrestlemania 35...but again...that's just my opinion...
as of the 25th of October 2018.

I feel like Roman makes his triumphant return at the Rumble, wins it, and wins the Shield triple threat main at WM, and people cheer him because of his journey. Not saying whether that's what should or shouldnt happen. It just seems likely. It sorta worked for HHH's return back in what, 02/03?

Wouldn't that be like "The Ultimate Manipulation" of the WWE audience?

Like them basically saying:

"You have to cheer for him because he defeated cancer!"

Yes and no. It'd definitely be exploiting the situation for their benefit. But at the same time, it's not like they can bring him back without doing that now that it was announced live on Raw, and is technically already part of the "story" due to the title vacating affecting the entire brand. It's inevitable to happen, so why not use it to better the company and Roman? It sucks, but it's what they have to deal with now

Well...I for one won't be manipulated.

I hope Roman does recover...but I'm
still not supporting him or watching any
of his matches or promos.

There's a good chance Roman won't be around for a couple years.. There's like no chance he'll make it back in time for the Rumble.

People just don't recover from Leukemia in a couple months.

I don’t see this one as a manipulation given the fact that Roman had this for 11 years in secret and kept doing his thing. Mad respect for the guy. I don’t like his WWE character, but I have major respect for him now.

He now started to talk about it because he needs to do treatment and can’t do that effectively while having the crazy, busy schedule as champ. Plus, he’s getting older and is now in “veteran” WWE status, which always makes things harder.

The point is that I don’t think this one was to get cheers, rather the guy just came out to tell the truth and wanted to raise awareness for his health issue. That’s it. It doesn’t mean I’m going to cheer for him, but I’m also not going to feel like fans were “manipulated” if they decide to cheer for him now. They’re cheering out of respect. It’s their choice and who cares?

I was talking about this to a friend in my classes who is also a wrestling fan, and for me, this is how I'd book the match.

Braun wins at WWE Blood Money. He holds the title until the Royal Rumble where he will lose it to a certain someone.

Dean has two title matches for the IC title against Seth, one is a draw, other is a narrow loss which is a bit fuzzy. Denied a rematch, costs Seth the title against Drew McIntyre (Drew vs Dolph IC title at Mania).

At the Royal Rumble Dean Ambrose narrowly beats Braun and wins the Universal title, defends it in the Chamber and retains. Seth either wins the Rumble or becomes number one contender after Elimination Chamber.

And would this main event Wrestlemania? It'd be hard to say. If I was WWE I'd gague the crowd reactions to Rousey and Flair and whatever the WWE Title match is and see which one the fans want most as the main event. I'd love the women to main event, but I would still rather it be earned out of what will garner the best "Wrestlemania ending" and make the crowd go home happy, something that hasn't really happened much over the past few Wrestlemanias, especially considering the words "historic" and "progressive" and "groundbreaking" would be said so much even me, who is fairly liberal, puke with its overuse. Regardless...

MAKE IT FULL TIME ROSTER MEMBERS IN THE MAIN EVENT JEEZUS FACK!

It will only become a case of audience manipulation if the WWE books
it as such...and lets be honest about this situation...the WWE has done
nothing but try to manipulate the audience as far as Roman Reigns &
the reactions he gets.

I have to explain that for me there is a still a disconnect between the
man Leati Joseph Anoaʻi & the character he portrays on television.

As a fellow human being...I want him to make a full recovery & live
a long life for his family, friends & fans...but...as far as the character
he portrays on television...nothing for me has changed.

Those who wish to support & "cheer" for Roman now are welcome
to do so...that's their choice...the same way its been my choice since
the Royal Rumble 2017 not to watch anything he is involved with.

Its not a case of actually hating the man himself...its a case of the
WWE trying so hard to make me like this guy that my "default setting"
is to simply ignore him.

And for the record...No...I didn't watch his promo on this past episode
of RAW...I simply read about it in the thread on this forum.

Call me a pathetic, cynical bastard (which I am) but I just worry
that the WWE will try and use & milk this situation for all its worth
to achieve their main goal which they have been trying to achieve
for the last 4 & half years now...and in my opinion...that would be
a simple continuation of Roman's overall terrible booking which
started pretty much as soon as the Shield broke up the first time.

If you watch Romans promo on Raw I don't see how you can call him boring.

He's character has always been simple., but he's promo on Raw gave it an extra dimension which I appreciate

That’s because it wasn’t a promo. He was just talking about a serious illness and explaining why he’s leaving.

I feel like we seen Rollin and Ambrose feud so many times. I think they will have a feud until Royal Rumble. I am really putting my bets on Seth winning the Rumble, or at the very least, get a title shot at Wrestlemania. I believe Strowman is gonna be running around with the Universal title soon, and him and Seth fight for the title at Mania. Seth wins and can dedicate it to a cancer fighting Roman Reigns. Itd be a good story.
