WWE rumors: The Shield to have big role in Royal Rumble match

The WWE rumors concerning “Wrestlemania 31” have been running rampant since this year’s Wrestlemania ended. The biggest WWE rumor is that next year’s Wrestlemania event will be where Roman Reigns is put over as a major star, with the biggest name he might face being Brock Lesnar for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. According to 411mania on Saturday, the “Royal Rumble” might book a huge moment to lead to this big match.

Of course, the winner of the Royal Rumble match gets the Wrestlemania WWE World Heavyweight Championship match every year. That means that, if Reigns is to challenge for the title at “Wrestlemania 31,” he will have to win the Royal Rumble match. The current WWE rumors indicates that the WWE will also add a special moment to the match because they are considering making the final three wrestlers in the match Reigns, Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.

Rollins is the current Money in the Bank briefcase holder, so he gets a title shot anytime he wants it between now and next June. He could also head into the Royal Rumble match with a second chance for a title shot, which would explain his appearance there. He could also cash in the briefcase before the “Royal Rumble” pay-per-view. Regardless, the biggest moment of the Royal Rumble in 2015 would be to see the three members of The Shield in the ring, with the last man standing getting the world title shot.

These WWE rumors also come around the same time that the news of The Shield being set up to reunite around the end of 2015 hit. This is supposed to be similar to what the WWE did with Degeneration X over the years, which was always popular. They attempted it again this year with Evolution to lesser success, mostly because of the boredom by fans over the character of Randy Orton and the dislike of Batista’s role when he returned to the company. The “Royal Rumble” WWE rumors could give them a huge moment before that happens.
