SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
Over the past two weeks, there has been ample speculation about which match will go on last at WrestleMania – Triple H vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE Title or The Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon.
Roman Reigns suggested in a pre-WM32 interview arriving at AT&T Stadium in Texas that he will be in “the” main event of WrestleMania. WWE likes to say that their Big Three or Four matches at each year’s Mania are their own “main event,” but Reigns said he’s looking to close out the WM31 to WM32 year the right way as WWE champion.
“It’s been a great week. It’s time to close this thing out, add some more weight to this bag,” Reigns told WWE cameras. “Been a long year. A lot of nights wrestling in main events all over the world. Thirty minute matches every single night; I’m ready to go. This is what my body has been waiting for.
“Go out there in the main event of WrestleMania and close out 2016 in the biggest WrestleMania of all-time,” Reigns continued in a dry, serious voice. “Naw, I’m kidding, I’m a little nervous,” he closed with a smile.
WWE then released a video of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon arriving at AT&T Stadium. Told about Reigns’s comment that he’s going to leave Texas with a heavier bag holding the WWE Title belt, Hunter smirked and thought about a retort. “Yeah, filled with wet clothing from tears,” Hunter said.
