WrestleMania Rumors: Reigns Heel Turn, Brock vs. Wyatts, Andre the Giant Battle Royal

— There is some speculation that WWE is setting up Roman Reigns for a heel turn after WrestleMania. Not only has Reigns stopped entering through the crowd, but if WWE goes through with having him go over Triple H at ‘Mania, Reigns biggest money opponents for the rest of the year are all faces – John Cena, Brock Lesnar, Undertaker and perhaps even a returning Seth Rollins. Traditionally in the past, Reigns turning heel would be almost a lock to happen but in this day and age, where heels and faces don’t impact the business as they used to, Vince McMahon has less incentive to give up on his two-year plan for Reigns.

— Brock Lesnar mixing it up with the Wyatt Family this past Smackdown could be an indication that the Wyatts will play a role in the finish. There are tentative plans for Lesnar to feud with Bray Wyatt after WrestleMania before moving onto feud with Braun Strowman over the summer.

— Along with Big Show, Kane, and the Social Outcasts, the following superstars are expected to be involved in the 20-man Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal: Braun Strowman, Bray Wyatt, Erick Rowan, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Los Matadores, Fandango, Jack Swagger, The Ascension, Tyler Breeze and Mark Henry. That leaves only one spot, perhaps going to a NXT superstar.
