Rumours: Brock Lesnar to retain title? WWE's plans for IC and US title
There have been a number of rumours, and possible spoilers, on the outcome of the WWE World Heavyweight title main event doing the rounds on the internet lately. And all of those have been received with mixed reactions from the WWE Universe.
But it hasn’t stopped there as Reddit user MetsFan4Ever, who has been a reliable source for revealing WWE spoilers in the past, has come out with some potentially major information about next weekend’s WrestleMania pay-per-view and the future of three of the company’s championships this time.
NOTE: This is just a rumour and it is not verified. Do not rely on these spoilers and do watch Wrestlemania 31.
r/SquaredCircle: After talking to a few people today at the SmackDown tapings word going around is that Brock Lesnar is very close to agreeing on a new contract with the WWE. With the lack of popularity that Roman Reigns has received as of late, Triple H is pushing Vince on the idea of keeping the WWE Championship on Brock.
This would also have huge ramifications with two of the under card matches on the show.
If Brock retains the title it would in all likelihood mean a continued “special attraction schedule” for him. Triple H as of late has been big on the idea that the I.C. Title and the U.S. Title should mean something again. The plan, if Brock retains is to put the U.S. Title on John Cena and the I.C. Title on Daniel Bryan.
The theory would be that two legit Superstars would bring legitimacy to both titles. Also, while Brock is gone both men can main event Raw, Smackdown, PPVs and house shows with those titles on top of the card. Which again, would bring back the legitimacy of both belts.
A lot can change between now and WrestleMania. But this is just one of the many ideas that are being discussed. I have not been told of any other ideas, but if I hear more, I will be sure to pass the information along to this great community.
