WZ has learned several backstage WWE plans and opinions regarding talents currently grabbing the attention of management.
To no surprise, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt and Bad News Barrett are the three favorites among Vince McMahon, Triple H, Kevin Dunn and others. One source said it's a race to see which of those three gets the world title first.
In terms of future plans and winning a world title, Reigns is almost guaranteed that his winning of his first world title will be special and done at a WrestleMania. Assuming things stay the course, it's very likely that could be next year at WrestleMania 31. As far as who he would work with, the two names that keep coming up are Brock Lesnar and The Rock.
Lesnar is an option but WWE is also considering other potential opponents for him at 'Mania. The Rock has expressed to McMahon personally that he wants to work with Reigns before he retires. On an interesting note, I mentioned to one source The Rock, and it being a title match, which would mean Rock would have to get the title going into WrestleMania and the source responded with "Yes, it would likely happen at Royal Rumble and remember he does technically have a rematch from when he lost the title to Cena."
WrestleMania 31 is still so far away that a lot can happen and many ideas will come across the table, but it seems barring injury or anything big that would get Reigns off-course, he's slated to be the babyface WrestleMania 31 gets built around.
We'll have more news and opinions on this on Chair Shot Reality this Friday through Sunday here on WZ.
