WWE WrestleMania 34 Results: Why Roman Reigns Should Have Defeated Brock Lesnar
April 9, 2018 - WWE
WWE WrestleMania 34 did not finish with Roman Reigns station high as a new Universal Champion.
Some doctrinaire fans, in sold those who can't mount Reigns, won’t like to hear this, though WWE did not make a intelligent choice during WrestleMania 34. It was time for “The Beast” to dump a Universal Championship, and Reigns was a right male for a job.
Let’s start with Lesnar, who hold a Universal pretension for some-more than a year since he’s deliberate to be WWE’s biggest draw but during his pretension energy had finished small to infer that’s indeed a case. According to WWE’s Key Performance Indicators, Raw’s TV ratings increasing accurately 0% by a finish of 2017, during that prove Lesnar had hold a pretension for scarcely 9 months. Likewise, a normal WWE Network subscriber count forsaken by some-more than 200,000 from Q2 (when Lesnar won a title) to Q4, while normal live eventuality assemblage was during 4,900 in Q3, a lowest during any entertain over a final 3 years.
It seems that a ostensible sketch energy of Lesnar dead into skinny atmosphere in 2017 and that his on-and-off participation was, well, a vital turnoff to fans, who didn’t seem to be really meddlesome in a happenings surrounding “The Beast.” Yet, WWE inexplicably pushed Lesnar above anyone and everybody on Raw, carrying him reap by tip stars like Samoa Joe and Braun Strowman in a process, that mutilated their abilities to truly strech a apex of WWE.
What done that preference even some-more baffling is that Lesnar May be in his approach out of WWE.
Recent reports prove that Lesnar could shortly be on his approach out of a company. Lesnar’s agreement expires shortly after a pay-per-view (as does Paul Heyman’s), and according to a Wrestling Observer (h/t Cageside Seats), “Lesnar is disposition toward returning to UFC since WWE won’t let him quarrel in a Octagon while underneath agreement to them again after he got bad press for his unsuccessful drug tests around UFC 200.”
Lesnar, of course, has confirmed utterly a flirtatious attribute with UFC as of late, and a company’s president, Dana White, recently pronounced that Lesnar will indeed be streamer to UFC in a nearby future, radically confirming what Heyman has teased for a while now. Late final year, White suggested that WWE indeed would not let Lesnar quarrel for UFC again while still underneath agreement with a company, so it positively appears that Lesnar will be incompetent to have his cake and eat it, too.
He will have to select between WWE and UFC, and with his sketch energy abating in WWE, it’s tough for Vince McMahon to clear bringing him back. WWE done a series of poignant cutbacks last year, and a easiest one it could make is vouchsafing Lesnar travel given that he was WWE’s second top paid star final year, according to FORBES. Unless Lesnar is peaceful to take a estimable paycut or WWE has secret justification that indicates he’s a most bigger pull than a publicly available data suggests he is, it’s time for a association to pierce on from “The Beast.”
But after Lesnar’s startling WrestleMania 34 win, there is doubt about either we’ve seen a final of “The Beast.”
