Brock Lesnar Will Defend WWE Title Against Roman Reigns At Wrestlemania 31
After a pulsating encounter with John Cena and Seth Rollins at the Royal Rumble, it seems likely Brock will meet Reigns...
Brock Lesnar will defend the WWE World Heavyweight champshionship against Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31 after the former Shield star won the Royal Rumble 2015 match.
Reigns, 29, eliminated six other competitors and was joined by The Rock in the closing moments of the show as he was attacked by the Big Show and Kane.
Daniel Bryan's early exit from the match frustrated fans both at the event live and on social media, with some booing the action after his departure.

Brock survived a bruising encounter with challengers John Cena and Seth Rollins - and despite initially suplexing the pair around with apparent ease, The Beast endured more of a beating than usual.
As well as taking at least three AAs and a Curb Stomp, the champ was also walloped through a barricade and smashed through a table.
And despite Rollins' best efforts to finish him off with the Money in the Bank contract briefcase, it didn't take much for Lesnar to shake off the knocks he had sustained and finish off Seth with the F5.
