Wrestlemania 32 has three pretty big main events, Dean Ambrose v Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns v Triple H for the WWE Championship, a high stakes match, but the stakes are even higher as Undertaker faces Shane McMahon inside Hell in a Cell.
If Shane wins, Undertaker would have fought his last fight at Wrestlemania and Shane will be in control of Monday Night Raw.
So how should this play out? Who should win between Taker and Shane? What will happen afterwards? Well there’s been multiple rumours suggesting that WWE are bringing back the brand split.
With that in mind it’s easy to see why WWE have emphasised the fact Shane will be competing for RAW and not the entire company.
Here’s what I hope will happen. With the help of John Cena, Shane McMahon wins the match and runs RAW.
Cena’s motive for this? A promise of multiple opprtunities at Ric Flairs 16 title record. This would turn both Cena and Shane heel. Which I think is the only way to turn Cena heel without the crowd actually cheering.
However this won’t immediately get Cena his title opportunities, as Taker will likely feud with Cena for ending his Wrestlemania career resulting in Takers retirment match, possibly at Summer Slam.
Then Cena will try for the title afterwards. So what happens to the title in the mean time?
Going back to Mania now, I think Triple H could turn face in a double turn with Roman Reigns. Heel Reigns will walk out of Mania as the WWE Champion, and the following night on Shane McMahon’s RAW, Triple H, will announce he will be taking over Smackdown, creating the brand split.
With that split, Reigns will lead the Smackdown roster as champion and will face challangers such as Dean Ambrose, however will likely hold the title until Seth Rollins returns and claims the title back.
This then brings us over to Survivor Series where we will have Raw v Smackdown in a traditional match but also a title match. John Cena v Seth Rollins where Cena aims to tie Ric Flairs record.
