Some out there who will remain nameless to save their credibility went into the night of WrestleMania 31 expecting that show to be nothing short of awful. The booking that preceded the show had underwhelmed a majority of fans who post on social media websites and on wrestling forums, and the event largely lacked the juice that usually surrounds a WrestleMania card every spring. World Wrestling Entertainment did begin to pick up steam when Brock Lesnar announced on ESPN television program SportsCenter that he was staying with WWE rather than rejoining the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Lesnar followed that up with a spectacular performance at WrestleMania, one that did not result in him retaining his title.
Even the most diehard professional wrestling fans out there who listen to podcasts and who subscribe to websites that offer news updates on the industry were left a bit surprised by the events that took place at WrestleMania 31. For starters, a UFC title holder who also happens to be the baddest woman on the planet took part in a segment that occurred inside of a WWE ring, teasing what could be a program down the road assuming that she will one day want to change gigs and have what would, for her, be an easier life as a pro wrestler.
Then there were the final scenes from WrestleMania 31 that included a championship change that featured a man who was not even in the main event of the show. Seth Rollins made history by becoming the first character to steal a WrestleMania main event and win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, a victory that did not include the previously mentioned Lesnar doing the job. WWE could now go in one of several directions with Rollins, who is no longer the future of the company. To steal a phrase that has been associated with a different wrestler for over a decade: Rollins' time is now.

1 Ronda Rousey Will Work a WWE Program
It has been no secret for years that UFC Women's World Champion and all-around badass Ronda Rousey is a massive WWE fan, and she was involved in one of the most discussed moments of the show that featured the rowdy one taking it to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon of “The Authority.” While there is speculation that the deal was a one-off, others are suggesting that it is a matter of when and not if Rousey does perform under the WWE umbrella. Rousey would have great fun in being involved with the company, and working for WWE would be less wear and tear on her body than is training for and competing in UFC battles.
