Wrestlemania season is just around the corner. For some, it starts as soon as the Royal Rumble ends. On the other hand, there are fans who feel that Royal Rumble is a crucial part of it. We need to agree with both views as RR is going to have a huge impact on Mania while the official build for it starts after the Rumble is concluded.
When we do get into Wrestlemania season, we are always looking for news and rumors about the biggest matches that are going to be featured on WWE’s most important show. Right now, we can say that Reigns will most likely challenge Lesnar for the Universal Championship. Other than that, everything else is rumors.
The biggest one is Braun Strowman possibly challenging The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship. According to Dave Meltzer, there were a lot of people that thought that Braun Strowman should be the Universal Champion after the Royal Rumble, but that Vince McMahon didn’t feel like taking the belt away from Lesnar, at least not at the time when Raw 25 was being produced.
Considering that Bruan Strowman participated in the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal that took place on the pre-show of Mania 33, this is a huge upgrade for him.
On the other hand, we do know that there is no way The Miz is on his level and that a star of his caliber should probably have a more legit opponent.
The Miz can’t hold a candle to Braun, but WWE can make this interesting with booking. If this match does happen, we expect Strowman to pull off some major stuns in order to annihilate The Miz and to put on a show for the fans in New Orleans.
