Last night's episode of Raw centered around a show long angle predicated on The Authority's want to get back at Randy Orton for being a big old meanie and putting a beating on Seth Rollins after a three week deception. The result?
The two are finally booked for a match together at WrestleMania 31 on Sun., Mar. 29, 2015, at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
Orton has racked up a string of legendary accomplishments since making his WWE debut nearly 13 years ago. At WrestleMania, Orton looks to decimate Rollins, showing no mercy for his past sins. Rollins has been called the "Future of WWE" since he joined The Authority last summer, and winning the Money in the Bank Ladder Match did nothing but fuel the belief that he is destined for greatness. Now, Rollins looks to finish what he started last fall, taking out the 12-time World Champion once and for all.
This will represent WrestleMania's grudge match, and it should deliver just fine with two talented workers who know how to put on a show in a big spot. It may not have the show stealing potential of the Intercontinental title ladder match or the importance of a Lesnar vs. Reigns or Triple H vs. Sting, but it's worth tuning in for.
Here's the updated WrestleMania 31 match card:
- Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns
- Triple H vs. Sting
- John Cena vs. Rusev
- Undertaker vs. Bray Wyatt
- Randy Orton vs. Seth Rollins
- Intercontinental title ladder match
- Andre the Giant Battle Royal
- AJ Lee & Paige vs. Bella Twins
