WWE WrestleMania 32: Why Roman Reigns Will Not Defeat Triple H


Roman Reigns has been looked at as a guarantee to win the main event at WrestleMania 32, but it isn’t going to happen.

Fans expect WrestleMania to be the most impressive event of the year, and rightfully so. With all the money and preparation put into Mania every year, it usually delivers as a pretty fantastic show. This year’s event looks like it should be a good one, but there is one very large elephant in the room when it comes to this year’s spectacle, and that is the main event between Roman Reigns and Triple H for the WWE title.

It’s not that this will be a particularly bad match, but we all seem to know how it’s going to end. It’s been reported for months that WrestleMania is going to be Reigns’ big moment where he finally overcomes the odds and begins his first significant title reign. That’s all well and good WWE, but we can all see it coming from a mile away, so there’s a good chance that if Reigns stands tall with the title over his head at the end of the night, the fireworks that go off will be drowned out by boos.

This perceived predictability is exactly why Roman Reigns will not win the main event on Apr. 3rd.

WrestleMania 32 is going to be the biggest WrestleMania of all time, at least as far as the venue and attendance are concerned. Vince McMahon is not going to let this project fall flat by finishing the night with a dull main event. And it’s not as simple as introducing a special guest referee or something along those lines, because the Roman project has been exposed for a long time. People aren’t going to be okay with Reigns winning just because the match is frilled up a little with a special referee, someone in Reigns’ corner, whatever. It isn’t going to work, and I have a feeling WWE knows this.

We love to pretend that WWE creative are just a bunch of morons who are spinning a wheel to make their booking decisions week in and week out, but in reality, they know what’s going on. They know Reigns isn’t over because they’re the ones who have to tell the sound guys to mute the boos and edit in a decent reaction. Although they’ve dealt with this for a while in hopes that people would warm up to Reigns, I think WrestleMania is going to be the tipping point. Reigns is going to deal with some of the most brutal crowds possible in the weeks leading up to Mania, and WWE is going to notice and realize that the record crowd in Dallas is going to give him the same treatment.

I don’t know what WWE is going to do fix this situation, but I think we’re in for something surprising. There are predictable or boring booking decisions on pay-per-views all the time, but rarely does the WrestleMania main event disappoint fans to the extent that a Reigns victory would. Whether they insert a third man into the main event or even have Triple H retain, I simply do not see Roman Reigns walking out of AT&T stadium with the WWE title, no matter what the plans have been up to this point.
