WWE top five rumors of the week and analysis: December 19th, 2016
Plans for Cena, huge US title match at WrestleMania and more.
Roadblock delivered plenty of talking points. The Iron-Man match between Sasha Banks and Charlotte, Neville making his entry into the WWE Cruiserweight division, Sami Zayn surviving against Braun Strowman and of course, the biggest of them all, the controversial way in which the main event ended.
A good portion of the speculation from the rumour mill concentrated on the show that happened on Sunday night. But there were some interesting rumours which focused elsewhere. Now that Roadblock is in the books, we are going to filter out the rumours about Roadblock and take a closer look at the ones that did not talk about the show.
#5 Reigns vs. Strowman in the build
Braun Strowman suffered a defeat to Sami Zayn at Roadblock via time limit rules. It was a good idea from WWE to keep both Strowman and Zayn protected. With the feud apparently over, Strowman would need something new to be invested in.
While the immediate storyline for Strowman could be revealed in the upcoming episodes of Raw, the WrestleMania plans for him could be set. Rumours reported by theinscribermag.com suggest that WWE plans to make Strowman face Reigns for the United States title at WrestleMania.
As Reigns and Strowman are two of the most strongly booked Superstars on the roster, a collision could make the fans interested.
