#4 Wrestlemania 31 vs Brock Lesnar

Seth Rollins’ cash in was spectacular, but what if Reigns won clean, turning heel after the match?

Although Seth Rollins’ cash in was incredible, WWE missed the chance to create an alternative iconic Wrestlemania moment . Although the Lesnar vs Reigns main event was still stellar, with Seth Rollins’ cash in being the icing on the cake, WWE could have booked one of the most high-profile heel turns of all time.

Reigns could have beaten Lesnar clean, receiving huge heat from the 77,000 fans in attendance. Fans would have experienced their worst nightmare, as it appeared Reigns had been victorious as a babyface. Then, The Rock would come out to celebrate with his younger cousin, embracing him on the Grandest Stage of Them All.

But, before ‘The Great One’ could raise Reigns’ arm, ‘The Guy’ would hit Rocky with a Spear, cementing himself as the top heel in the company, as well as setting up a Summerslam dream match with the ‘People’s Champion’.

This shocking turn of events in the main event of Wrestlemania 31 could have cemented the Lesnar vs Reigns match as one of the best in recent years, and the thunderous boos that Reigns would’ve received had he turned on his cousin could have made him the biggest heel in years.

Unfortunately, once again, WWE missed the boat, and Reigns continued as a babyface despite consistent negative reactions, even though he hadn’t won the championship from Lesnar.
