3 Reasons Why You Should Watch WrestleMania 31

Posted by Christopher Jester Wednesday, March 18, 2015
I've heard a lot of controversy this year over whether or not to watch this WrestleMania due to the poor build up of the show and lack of appearance by part-time stars in big matches such as The Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, and Sting. But come...on it's WrestleMania! I have three perfectly good reasons why you should and probably will be checking out the show, so let's get right to it.

Seth Rollins vs Randy Orton backstage spoilers for WrestleMania

3.) Seth Rollins could cash in his Money in the Bank contract

Any broadcast of Monday Night Raw, SmackDown, or pay-per-view event could be considered a night when this could happen, but in particular, this WrestleMania just feels right as the night Seth Rollins will cash in the contract. Keep in mind since its introduction in 2005, the Money in the Bank contract holder has never cashed in at WrestleMania. The first person to win the briefcase—Edge—held onto it for so long that the announcers started to speculate that he would but he ended up cashing it in after an Elimination Chamber match to win the title. Mr. Kennedy won the briefcase in 2007 at WrestleMania 23 and announced he would save it for WrestleMania, but an injury forced him to relinquish the briefcase early. If you're a member of the camp that thinks Brock Lesnar is headed back to UFC and Roman Reigns isn't quite ready to be the standard-bearer, look no further than Seth Rollins. A frustrated Lesnar could attack Reigns after losing the title in the main event, prompting Rollins to storm the ring and cash in, ending WrestleMania with the pleasing image of Seth Rollins holding up the WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt. Of course, this won't make everyone happy, but I'd say there is more than a decent chance we see Rollins walk out with the title. If you believe the rumors that Vince McMahon himself isn't sure anymore that putting the title on Reigns is the right move and if you look at the on-screen booking prior to Fastlane where Reigns had to put his shot on the line, those two things help support this idea.

Sting future plans will face undertaker at WrestleMania 32

2.) Sting's In Ring Debut with WWE

Vince McMahon purchased his competition World Championship Wrestling in March of 2001 and with it, the contracts of any WCW superstar that wanted to be a part of the winning side. Most of them did, but one was a loyal soldier to WCW. That man's name was Steve Borden aka Sting, and until November of 2014 Sting stayed a loyal soldier. Thirteen years after saying he'd never join the WWE Sting had a change of heart and decided to test his skills in a WWE ring. We've all wondered what it would be like to see The Icon battle other legends such as The Undertaker, Triple H, Randy Orton, and John Cena. Now we'll get our chance. Be mad at the build if you want (personally I'm still excited for the match from what I have seen) but if you're a lifelong fan of the sport, you can't possibly tell me you can't see yourself tuning in at least to see Sting finally in a WWE ring.

1.) It's only 9.99 to watch

This is not a joke. The number one reason you should watch WrestleMania is why wouldn't you? Since I was 13 years old and probably even before that, pay-per-views ranged from 30-50 dollars. WrestleMania itself got up to $60. With the power of the WWE Network, you can see any archived stuff you want: past events, current original content, whatever. But even if you don't care about any of that, WrestleMania for a sixth of the cost is too good of a deal to pass up. Why neglect to watch something you love out of spite? There is a good product that you use and enjoy and is an incredible value for all wrestling fans. I truly don't believe you just won't have the 3-4 hours to dedicate to watching WrestleMania. So enjoy the ride.
