WWE taped a backstage segment this week that will air this Friday on Smackdown featuring Triple H and The Rock. The segment was in celebration of the 15th Anniversary of Smackdown, but the two teased what would happen if they faced off again. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there are at least preliminary discussions in place that would see Triple H and The Rock face off in the co-main event of WrestleMania 31.
WWE is currently planning spots for two special guests. The first is most likely The Rock, and the second is expected to be Sting. The Undertaker hasn’t ruled out “one more match”, but also hasn’t settled one way or another. Sting has stated in the past that if he couldn’t work with the “Deadman” at WrestleMania 31, he’d like a match with Triple H.
As has been reported for months now, the expected main event is Brock Lesnar defending the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Roman Reigns. The former Shield heavy is currently recovering from injury, but is expected back in the next few months, and unless something goes horribly wrong he’ll be back in time for the Royal Rumble.
Another match being discussed is John Cena vs. Rusev.
KILLAM: It’s getting close to that time a year, where we start to speculate on matches for WrestleMania season. It’s a good sign of how bad the TV product is, that we’d rather talk about a show that’s still six months away.
