Nia Jax could be part of a huge feud leading up to WrestleMania 33

If you did not already know, the Road to WrestleMania 33 has already begun. I know the Royal Rumble usually begins WWE’s trek toward its biggest night of the year, but now that there are two brands and plenty of possible winners at “the event” in January, it’s ok to begin talking about April in Orlando.

Regardless of the fact that the company is not enjoying the ratings it wants, there are some solid performances the WWE can build upon heading toward 2017. There are also a few feuds that might help increase ratings if the creative team could see its way toward making them happen.

These are five feuds fans should witness before the talk of WrestleMania 33 really starts to ramp up.


#1 Rusev vs. Seth Rollins 

With his battle with Roman Reigns coming to an end, what is next for Rusev?

This match is out of necessity more than anything else. With Rollins and Owens set to battle at Hell in a Cell, what happens after the feud? There is nowhere for Rollins to go if he loses to the current Universal Heavyweight Champion.

By the same token, Rusev doesn’t have a dance partner after his feud with Roman Reigns.

WWE would be foolish to take the United States Title off his waist. So, with Rollins firmly entrenched as a babyface, he gets the mad Bulgarian as the company moves toward the Royal Rumble. How will the Architect plan to escape Rusev’s raw power?

I've been a fan of this business for over 40 years and have been writing about it for the past 20 years. I'm an old school NWA guy who believes in the Texas Bull Rope Match and the wrestlers from "parts unknown". Yes, the Midnight Rider was robbed and should have been NWA World Champion.
