This weekend someone presented to me a fantastic what-if: What if Undertaker had beaten Lesnar at Wrestlemania 30 and the streak was intact, only for Roman Reigns to be the one to break it. Also assuming that nothing has changed about the presentation of Roman and that WWE was still hellbent on making him the next babyface of the company, just how hilarious would the backlash to such a thing have been?

In this thread, pretend that Roman Reigns was the one to break the streak at Wrestlemania.

I'm the fan who cries that Reigns doesn't deserve it and says I am done with WWE, then watches RAW the next night.

Uglier on the inside.

Roman would probably be getting cheered as the man who finally laid the troubled soul of The Undertaker to his eternal rest.

Roman is basically the WWE's psychopomp, laying it's biggest stars to rest so that they no longer must roam the Earth in search of spots.

"For god's sake, man! Can you hear that? I know it seems like crying, and you always have crying in your head, but can you hear that?"

Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved The Big Dog, Roman Reigns. Bow Wow.

Don't get my name wrong,

I'm the delayed pop as Taker gets up immediately after the 3 count and tombstones him 10 times and spits on the corpse.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. For I the LORD thy Sun God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of cosmic prestige upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

I, like all WWE fans, would feign disbelief and anger, all the while watching wrestling on Mondays and Tuesdays as I mutter under my breath, "This is why I quit watching WWE products over 10 years ago."

I feel about Brock how Lil B used to feel about Kevin Durant.

While Brock's laziness in how he's worked his matches from Rollins forward and how he hosed Ambrose over so his MMA Training wouldn't be hiccuped by any boo boos is worthy of scorn, 95% of your ire should be pointed at Vince, who we have heard multiple times has complete creative control and is 100% responsible for any booking involving Brock. He and whoever is assisting him are the ones that are responsible for all the decisions that ruined the "Streak Rub," outside of Brock's ask for the Ambrose match to be cut short.

They decided the streak needed to be followed up with 50/50 booking where Taker got his win back. They decided they needed a Russo HE WENT OFF SCRIPT angle in the Orton match and promised Randy that Brock would be able to hardway a bleed without hurting him instead of just letting the man loving blade. They decided Rollins and Ambrose needed to look like loser clowns when fighting him instead of like tough badasses who could maybe reach Brock's level like Roman got to.

I've never liked Brock, and the fact that they're going to have him destroy one of my childhood heroes at Mania in likely his last match before once again being an absentee Champion is upsetting as hell, but lets keep perspective on who's fault the situation with Brock actually is. It's not Brock's duty to correct dumb decisions, especially when they're dumb in his favor. He's not the one calling his shots.
