Last minute changes have been made by the sports book. Brock Lesnar is now favored to retain the heavyweight championship against Roman Reigns, and the reason for that is because he signed a new contract with WWE. Triple H is now favored to defeat Sting in his Wrestlemania debut match. No word on why those particular odds did a complete shift, but the theory floating around is that it is because so many were betting on the WCW legend.

Despite the new contract signed by Brock Lesnar, the sports books are still listing Roman Reigns as the favorite to win the main event of Wrestlemania. Their belief is that WWE has already pulled the trigger on his superstar push, so they are just going to go through with it. The front office can always put the heavyweight championship belt back around the waist of Lesnar at a later date. Reigns is a -210 odd, while Lesnar is +160.

Some possible good news for fans who are against the idea of Roman Reigns becoming the top star in WWE. There is now a really good chance that he does not get that opportunity because rumors have surfaced that Triple H has finally convinced Vince McMahon to let Brock Lesnar retain the heavyweight championship.

While a lot of WWE fans are overjoyed right now about the Brock Lesnar news, they are about to be brought back down to earth for a bit when they realize that the new contract means that John Cena has a better chance of winning the United States Heavyweight Championship from Rusev at Wrestlemania. Since Lesnar will still be part time, the front office wanted a belt on Cena, so that he can use it to headline live events each week.

There are talks coming out of WWE right now that if Brock Lesnar were to sign a new contract to remain with the company, then he would be rewarded with a victory over Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania. He would still be allowed to work the limited schedule that he has been on while continuing to carry the heavyweight championship. Management would then put the IC and US belt on Daniel Bryan and John Cena respectively so they can headline live events.

If WWE decides to go through with the idea of having the world famous Samoan wrestling family showing up at Wrestlemania to celebrate with Roman Reigns when he wins the heavyweight championship from Brock Lesnar, one of the faces out there that you might not be familiar with yet is Lina Fanene. She is currently in the developmental program but not yet a regular on television. She is related to The Rock and is close to his mom.

In the main event of Fast Lane, Roman Reigns successfully defeated Daniel Bryan via pin fall to earn himself a chance to challenge Brock Lesnar for the WWE Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania. Management needed Bryan to help Reigns look good, and the former world heavyweight champion absolutely delivered. It was the best singles match that Reigns has been involved in since joining the company a couple of years back.

For the longest time there, Vince McMahon was against the idea of adding Daniel Bryan to the WWE Heavyweight Championship match at Wrestlemania between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. The feeling is that the CEO did not want to repeat a similar story from the previous year, as fans would feel that the company lacks creativity. McMahon is said to be softening up on his stance as of late because he feels pressure from the fans.

In one of the best matches in the history of the Royal Rumble, Brock Lesnar successfully retained the WWE Heavyweight Championship by pinning Seth Rollins after an F5. John Cena had been knocked out by a beautifully and masterfully executed Phoenix Splash from Rollins. Lesnar was made to look especially strong in the match because he came back to win after coming close to being stretched out because of a story line rib injury.
