Brock Lesnar re-signs with WWE, rematch with Roman Reigns set

In a valiant, defiant display of courage, however, Roman keeps getting back up.

Oh, and Nakamura turned heel at WrestleMania 34 and I don't want to talk about it. The silence after each F-5 kickout is deafening.

It's uncertain if Reigns' unprecedented loss at WrestleMania is a sign that WWE has finally made a decision to stop trying to sell this particular product.

Once the match was over, Lesnar headed backstage with Paul Heyman, and that is where the main event fight actually began.

And when he arrogantly mocked him, Undertaker sat up, caught Cena and defeated him with a huge chokeslam and Tombstone piledriver. It's easy not to feel sympathy with the Reigns character, but what did Reigns, the person, do wrong? Since then, fans have expected this.

Reigns, who is a first cousin to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, has been very critical of Lesnar's part time status with WWE over the last three-years. They just didn't care.

-Now for the main event. If both can make money off of continuing to work together, that's exactly what they're going to wind up doing. The WWE chose to hand its biggest names the headline spot on the card, instead of fan loves AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura - and attempt to win the crowd over with pure destruction.

Each and every year since 1985, thousands of WWE fans come together to witness the greatest spectacle in professional wrestling known as WrestleMania. Asuka tried to wear down Charlotte's limbs to set up her Asuka Lock, and pulled off perhaps the coolest reversal to a moonsault we've ever seen midway through the match.

While we don't know what's in store for Lesnar's long-term future, we at least know that he's not done in WWE just yet, and that a return to the UFC will be happening before long.

At WrestleMania 34, however, Reigns was facing Brock Lesnar.

-The crowd cheered and thought it was amusing when they showed John Cena in the crowd but then popped when he ran backstage figuring he was going to get ready to face Undertaker. But Lesnar countered with an F5, and it was finally enough. The problem is, there's only a small handful of guys who could credibly defeat Brock Lesnar and take his championship.

Reigns is a brooding, moody kind of hero; he doesn't go out of his way to give fans a reason to cheer for him beyond that he's big, handsome and tough.

So was Lesnar once again playing the promotions off one another? He's an older man and John isn't. So that's one new credible challenger WWE has built in the past four years. Now, it feels like it's been held hostage.

Reigns landed hard from a number of the suplexes, with his head and shoulder suffering tremendous amounts of impact. He's a talented wrestler with a great look and an impressive resume of his own.
