Seth Rollins’ injury has unsurprisingly forced the WWE to do some reshuffling of its creative plans for both Survivor Series and the road to next year’s WrestleMania 32.

According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, many of the top WrestleMania match plans have changed, a result of Rollins’ injury, breaking news on The Rock’s status as well as a little creative indecision.

” We noted before via PWInsider that John Cena vs. The Undertaker is one of the planned main events for WWE’s WrestleMania 32 next year. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports this week that Cena vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE World Heavyweight Title was planned, at least before Seth Rollins got injured. This goes with the report that Reigns was set to win the title from Rollins at Survivor Series or soon after.

The Observer reports that Rollins was set to face Triple H at WrestleMania 32. The Rock vs. Triple H had been planned but the Rollins match was just recently chosen as WWE creative were told that both Rock and Ronda Rousey wouldn’t be available to wrestle next year.”

In other words, the WWE isn’t sure what the main events of WrestleMania 32 will be, but news of a potential Cena vs. Reigns match could be an indicator of upcoming creative plans. Perhaps this means that Reigns will become WWE World Heavyweight Champion at Survivor Series, and maybe it also means that he’s going to turn heel and join The Authority.

Or perhaps the WWE simply wants a clash between its two top full-time babyfaces as a “passing of the torch” because creative views that as the best match it can have due to the likely absences of both The Rock and Ronda Rousey. While the WWE could certainly use The Rock and/or Rousey as the company attempts to break even more pay-per-view records, Reigns vs. Cena isn’t a bad backup plan if that simply can’t happen.

Although Lesnar vs. Reigns: The Rematch makes the most sense from a booking standpoint, a large portion of the WWE fan base has reacted unfavorably to WrestleMania rematches (think the negative backlash to The Rock vs. Cena: Part Two) in recent times, so the creative team should strongly consider going another route if WrestleMania 32 is going to be the biggest pay-per-view of all-time.

Maybe, just maybe, given the way the dominoes are falling, Reigns vs. Cena is the best way to go. As long as we don’t get any botched Springboard Stunners.
